Don't feel bad Bill! I helped install a intake and carb on a friends 401 today, which is the only real jeep work I have gotten to do since x-mas!

A small amount of work, not much.
Painted a YJ part, air cleaner top, and cleaned this box up. The inner cable was rusted in half.
The paint is a high solid, industrial protective coating.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Thanks for the picture Matt, other than the first trip to Dukes Off Road Ranch, with the bolts on the Q-trac what else did I break, I honestly don't remember. There was also the Chevy motor mount in South Dakota.
I don't think adjusting the Motorcraft 2100 float, on the trail counts
Ok, I'm starting to remember more. The broken motor mount on the 258, and moving the grill foward for radiator clearance.
O well, stuff going to break. I guess that's why they call me Wild Willy at work.
That came after a Emergency call, when the Ladder Truck behind me saw 2" of daylight under the inside duals on the engine I was driving.

This Trophy is given yearly to the MIJC.org club member, who had the most breakages of Jeep stuff, on Club outings.

Picked up a single wire alternator at a rebuild shop today, $74.45 with core.

Found out the steering pump will work with the 1989 lines.
Traced out some vacuum lines for the CAD front axle.
And spent some time with the YJ underhood wiring. The CJ dash install will wait till spring.
All with the help of a Chiltons and Google
Some pictures.
I think I'll have to go to the YJ section on the in tank electric pump vs the mechancial fuel pump, unless someone here has a idea.
