Scott, I can't believe how good it all looks! Wow. And you're right, the black/tan combo is awesome (I'm partial to it myself). Love how you got the wife unit involved. Women have small feet so they can (a) stand close to the sink and (b) cozy up to jeep parts to apply paint.

Thanks P... and they don't need a watch either, cause there's a clock on the stove!

Looking awesome Skipper. That color combo works great. Just keep the family involved, and you *should* be done by the time you go back to work

That would be great, but I'm very intimidated by the elctrical part of this build. Once I start concentrating on something I usually get it, so maybe it will all click once I start.

Looking good!! I think one of the best parts is how everyone always seems to be enjoying themselves in the pics.

You are aware though, now that you did all this for Clay, the other ones will want to do one for themselves too....

As for the electrical, once you get everything together and you see where the plugs go, I think it will go together faster and easier than you think.

Bwahahaha! I've got to remember that one. Will use it on my commander in chief tomorrow. If you don't hear from me, it didn't go over too well.

Yesterday was one of those days when the love of God descended upon us all, and we "got along"! Believe me when I tell you that it isn't always that way. We do have a great family, but to have a 10, 12, 18 year old, AND a woman "on a mission", along with a guy who is definitely set in his ways (me), ALL WORKING TOGETHER with a heat index of 105*, I can only say God was present, and He wants the Jeep! I still have the 7 in shop... it's next after Clay's, and now I have the 3B in the garage, and wife says she wants it. Got plenty to do. I hope I live through it all! I hope you're right about the electric.

If you need me to hold on to some things BEFORE you mention it to the Boss, let me know. I will be glad to hold the Jeep, the boat, hmmm... what else you got!? Remember, discretion is the better part of valor

Scott the colors are looking great together. The CJ is really going to stand out like that too. That's not always such a good thing though if you have a heavy foot like I do!

LOL! And with 50 wires that's a lot of combinations. I end up doing a lot of stuff over!!!

I don't think Clay will have to worry about going fast, but you on the other hand... Of course, with OD paint, you can whip off the road and sit still, and they'll drive right by.

MC2100 Vacuum Port Install

Apparently some MC2100s did not come with a vacuum port on the base. The "mock" hole is there, where a port WOULD have been, but it is not drilled out all the way. This is where I choose to run vacuum for the PCV, so I needed to have a port. I had to drill out the hole, tap it, and install a nipple. This is how I did it. All of you guys that know how to do this... take a nap! Or throw some comments my way.


The MC2100 on Clay's 258.


I have already drilled the hole. I didn't think about pics until I was into this process. There was a factory "mock" hole here. The mock hole was machined halfway, I drilled it the rest of the way. I used my hand drill. I selected my drill bit by removing the bit from the case and attempting to thread the nipple into its hole. Or, you can hold the bit and the threaded end of the nipple against each other, drill bit in front, and see if you can see threads on both sides of the bit. When you see just threads, that's the bit you want.


I am using this nipple. It has pipe threads, and it is the same diameter as a 3/8 tap. I am going to cut threads with this 3/8 pipe tap. A pipe tap is tapered as you can see in the pic.


My T-Handle won't fit in this application, so I am using a 3/8 ratchet with socket to drive the tap.


Don't go plowing in there thinking "this is easy"! It IS easy, but you can go too far with a pipe tap. You need to cut a few threads and pull it out, test fit the nipple. Do that over and over until you have the proper depth. The carb base is aluminum, so the threads cut easily. If you go too far you'll end up with the nipple going all the way through the hole!


I placed a little dollop of Form-A-Gasket non-hardening sealant on the threads. I want to make sure I don't have a vacuum leak.


All done and snugged down. DON'T OVER-TIGHTEN! You'll strip the aluminum threads. Gentle now...


Carb mocked up and the PCV can be easily attached (once I get enough tubing).




Okay, all you experts can wake up now!

And this concludes our lessons for the day...
