Negative Ghost Rider. That would be a 100th Anniversary Road King Classic with a batwing fairing.

Ahh, stealthy...seldom see a fairing of that style on a RK.

That first garage pic you posted w/ just the top portion of the fairing/windscreen appeared to be a SG.

Congrats on your $100 CJ - you could always pay it forward to other fellow Jeepers!

Perhaps some of the JF members that assisted in getting your other one to TX and/or the guy who was kind enough to store it for you!?!

Most definitely. Things will be swapped and changed around, I just need to go over this one with a fine tooth comb and see where it sits right now.

Although I did just take it for a spin, and now have a huge grin. Love SoCal weather....doors off w/ the bikini top. Jeans and a hoody.

First things first, I'm sorry to hear about your family SSgt. It sure is hard being away from them during troubled times. Happy to hear everything is okay with your daughter.

Second, nice job on getting the CJ7, although I don't know why you need all that extra leg room?!?!? I came across all kinds of "free" things in the barracks on Futenma when people were PCSing. Like free cars, TV's, etc.

And third, welcome back to Kommifornia. Lets get started on some Fuel Injection

Jumphog - Question for you that doesn't stray too far from topic. The time(s) you were at Pendleton, did you ever hear of an off-road club on base? We had formed one back in 84 called the Pendleton BushEaters, but I left in Sep 85 and was wondering how long the club lasted. It was for any vehicle but only Marines or Navy personnel. Ring any bells?

Well I stand corrected... I think you could part out the Express and pay for the new jeep since you got it only for $100. ;-)

Congrats on the new jeep, you stole it! After re reading the Express thread and the build thread I remembered that the Express was not drivable. What are the plans with it?

I'd like to pull the D44 and NV4500 out of the Express and possibly the steel tub (the 82 has a fiberglass tub which I'm not too keen on) and then let the JF members go to town on the rest of it.

Negative, Renegade. I was in Kaneohe, HI in '84, leaving there for Camp "Swampy" Lejeune in May of that year. The only time I was in CA. was for staging or just passing through. I hear there are some outstanding places to ride out there, and would sure like to give it a shot, but that will probably never happen.

Snapped a bunch of pictures a little while ago with the good camera, plan on getting them online after I get some grub and put the kiddos to bed.

Ok, so here are the pics:

Parked in the garage


Shot of the front locking hubs


Dash - Speakers are shot, no faceplate with the radio, some knobs don't match, and I need a wiper motor cover.


Front end, looking to the rear


Steering box, it leaks, might need a rebuild or replace.


Rear end, AMC 20...yeah, that's going to get swapped out for a Dana 44.


T-Case If I read the casting marks correctly, it's a Dana 300. Plan on rebuilding it, just for my own sake.


Looks like I'm gonna need a new battery tray...and battery too...Popped the hood for some pictures, and the tray had told me to go f*** myself, and dumped the battery, which I think now has a small hole in the case. That got pulled real quick.


Passenger side of engine bay. Spaghetti of wires that need cleaning up/rerun.


Drivers side of engine bay. Weber carb needs to be rebuilt as it looks like it leaks a bit. (Or should I replace it with a Motorcraft 2bbl while I gather parts for a MPFI swap?)


Engine code(?) This is on the pass side of the block, just in front of the distributor. It reads 110C23


Casting number (I believe that's what it is) Drivers side of block.
It reads EF3235444




Now down to the nitty gritty. So far I have found the following items inop:
Fuel gauge (surprise surprise, need to trouble shoot)
Speedo (traced that one today, cable broken.)
Temp Gauge (again, troubleshooting time)
Blower Motor (need to look into a bit more, will probably do the Blazer upgrade)

Engine needs to be cleaned so I can start tracing down leaks to their origin, seats need to be replaces, brakes need to be inspected/adjusted, and pretty much just gone over completely and start putting together a laundry list.

But hey, for $100, I'll do it with a smile!

Be careful with random upgrades such as carb etc. You are now in smog nazi California. All those fun upgrades are a no go here. You need to be stock or any upgrades that are engine related need to be blessed by the state

Yeah, that's what I've been told, and have seen first hand. Will probably just rebuild the Weber until I get the MPFI sorted out.

It's my understanding that any fuel injection upgrade has to be CARB certified in California. The Howell and Mopar kits are the only two I'm aware of that have it. Unfortunately, you pay out the nose for that certification. I don't think a junkyard MPI will pass. Someone please correct me, if I'm wrong.

If you stick with a carb, you will need to replace ALL of the original emissions systems, which have probably been stripped. 1982 was the first year AMC started using an ECM (computer) to control fuel mixture and timing. Some CJs got them, others didn't, that year. At the very least, you will have to have an air pump, EGR, vapor canister, and CAT to pass, if you stay carbed.

Good luck

Matt
