Can of worms

Started tearing down Lucile to replace the engine and this is what I found. The reason why she spewed water from behind the manifold was a bad freeze plug, and I think I might have found the exhaust leak.

Crome dip stick.......wait that just makes it go fast

Hopefully that rusted out freeze plug hole cleans up enough to reseal. If not its a pipe tap and pipe plug.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.
