This is good advice. At some point you'll need to reassemble something 2 years later and you'll curse yourself for not having a photo that hows how it should look correctly assembled. You can never have too many photos.
You also have to take the time to organize the photos so you can find them in the future. I suggest naming the photos with details names. In Windows, you can select a list (or range) of photos (or any other files) by clicking the first one, holding down the Shift ken, and clicking the last photo, press F2 to rename, type in a new name, and then hit Enter. That will rename the whole group of pics and number each one in order. I do this all the time when I work on my Jeep and take photos. Windows makes it easy to search for photos so if you've named the pics well then it is simple to find them in the future.
Thanks for the advice ken. Im definitely keeping my pictures organized in subfolders. Ill keep giving daily updates.
Hey everyone, today was day 4 of working on the jeep. today I torn down, cleaned, installed a new rebuild kit and reassembled my Holley carb. I just have one question. I know everyone recommends a 4 barrel over a 2 barrel carb because they are better than the original carb that came with cj5. But I also had someone tell me to get rid of the Holley I have because they can be temperamental and get a Edelbrock and I wont have any problems. What are everyones thoughts?
Not a carb guy but I have read through a lot of forums on here and it goes both ways. Just watch what you go with because unless you are running high performace you should stick to a lower cfm carb because if it is to high you will just burn up more gas then what is needed. Looking good on the photos and wishing that I had a shop that nice to work out of
Today was Day 7, I had the engine up on the stand, I removed the valve cover, the push rods, exposed the piston heads, and removed the oil pan to reveal the cam shaft and pistons underneath. Now when i bought the jeep there was an odd clanking noise and the engine wasnt running smoothly. Today I luckly found out the problem, not only did they not put the correct starter which ate up the starter and the flywheel, but two of the push rods were not even connected to the valves and one of the rods was completely bent. Here are some pictures to show that and of the entire days progress.
Definitely a nice CJ to start a project with! Nice job on taking pics too!
Thanks, Im trying hard to document everything so I can have pictures to go back and look at and to also make a build book that I can keep with the jeep when its done and if I were to ever sell it in the future to give to the next owner so its a well documented jeep.
