Hey Scott I think Mike "Coiz" made his own return line if I'm not mistaken. Might want to check with him.

Maybe he will gain an appreciation for:

- The fact that sometimes we have to do things over and over to get them right.
- We learn from our mistakes.
- It takes a ton of patience to see a big project through to the end.
- The time with his dad is something that can not be replaced.

Lol that doesn't sound like any fifteen year old I know! Kidding, of course. A fresh stage of the build and a couple of new parts will have him all over it again.

Hey I tried calling you but I cant remember your number. PM me it if you would. I just wanted to let you know I found this: 1968 Jeep CJ5 I know it's a little late since you got your frame straightened out but maybe you could use some of the other parts off the jeep.

I haven't seen you sign back up at northeastfl4x4.com either, you should because I'm getting some good contacts that are joining.

Thanks for your comments guys. Clay was getting pretty mopey there because the forward movement came to a screeching halt. He is energized again! We had a good evening working on his rig and we got a good bit done. I can't believe how heavy a T18 is... and I can't believe how bad my back aches right now! Gonna have to soak in a hot tub with a good western. Still not clear on how to put captions on the pics so you gotta scroll up and down, and up and down...

First pic is the 258 and T18 eyeballing each other.

The 2nd pic is Clay removing the bellhousing. I couldn't get the thing together with it in place so we removed it from the block and attached it to the tranny.

3rd pic Clay is reattaching the dust shield

4th is of Clay hoisting the entire unit. The CJ frame is in the foreground.

5th- Now you tell me that ain't bad to the bone!

With the diamond pulled out of the frame the engine sits straight in the hole, not angled to one side. I am very pleased. We discovered we don't have any bolts for the tranny crossmember... what do I need? 7/16??

In these images you can see a side view of the engine sitting in place. I really like it!

The hood (front clip) takes up a lot of floor space. I can't wait to "get it gone"! Just putting the engine in the frame made a lot of room.

Clay pulling my 7 into the shop before the rain came, and the picture was snapped just seconds before he ran over me!

And once the engine hoist is out of my shop I will be able to once again park back-to-back Jeeps and still be able to close the door. I haven't had that luxury for several months now. Ironically, I discovered that I am missing two more 3/8 drive sockets! Clay says he hasn't used them. I know the rest of the boys haven't used them, and I know I haven't used them... so where the heck are they?

Thanks for the Jeep link, Nick. I had a '66 for awhile but decided I didn't need 3 Jeeps so I sold it. The parts won't interchange with my 79. I'll be back over to your website... hang in there!

Lol. This sounds like a pretty widespread problem, we have been having the same issue with the racoons in Wisconsin. It's baffling. By the way Skerr, that engine looks clean. Give Clay a pat on the back from JF for us.

Thanks, Mark. Feels good to finally get there. I'll give him a good whack!
