Bill how do you get your stubby arms up to the Jeep from the creeper?

Do they make lift kits for them?

Lift blocks. Sometimes I winch the Jeep vertical using a tree branch on my shade tree. Then I just stand on a box or ladder.

The only problem with going to Jim's is there never seems to be enough time, didnt even talk about hunting and shooting, and I brought one with me.

It was great meeting you Dave, I'm looking forward to the next time. It was well worth the 6+ hour round trip, Haha I believe we spent 6 hours at Jim's also.

When Jim asked me if I had any requests' my first words were Blackberry cobbler. Patti made a great meal, and Jim cooked some great pork steaks on the grill.

Bill

Nope, when the Amigos posed for the picture my iPhone exploded.

I've been to Jim's 4 different times. I'm thinking the next time I go I'll pitch a tent and stay for a week, right next to Jim's lake.

Scott, I googled the Marlin 39a. I was shocked at the price. I don't know what I'm going to do, but am leaning towards the Henry 22 wmr. I thinking the 22 mag. because I already have a Ruger 10-22, and want something with a little more fps. My google search showed a 22lr at 1200/1300 fps. The mag is 2200, that should be enough to set off some Tannerite. If it doesn't I'm also looking at a .223 in the form of a AR style rifle. I'm taking my time with this. Don't need to be in any hurry.

Bill

So 2 weeks ago I took a spare Th400 ( factory tranny for a Quadratrac) to a friend. With his help a manual valve body was installed. This valve body is also a shift kit. Long story short, I finished the install today.

On the first drive I had a huge smile on my face, everything worked great. This thing shifts right now, in fact it shifts so good, when I ran the engine up to 2500 rpm and hit 2nd gear the tires chirped.

Probably a good thing I put new U-joints in the rear driveshaft.

Before I leave for the sand dunes trip next weekend I'm going to change the distributor to a reman unit. This is to increase the advance curve, get a new vacuum advance, and replace the used one I put in.
I've checked the gear , it's ok.
I am going to replace the cotter pins with roll pins , this is the way them were when new.



image-4285709901.jpg

To me there is too much play , and the cap doesn't seem to be as tight as it should, you can see the slop.


image-1539509053.jpg

The roll pins should decrease the distance by 1/2 the distance shown in the picture. If I can't find the correct size roll pin I going to use a machine screw with a nylock.

Also going to add a Dedicated ground, to one of 2 places. Either use a longer machine screw and nylock nut in the advance, or a self tapping screw in the other hole shown.
