Skerr...

watch the video clip, think about all your CJ friends in JeepForum land, apply one of them to the character in the video clip, and, PRESTO! you have your motivation to repair that leak!

you can tell us who you think is who, or not. But if you do, we have at least 10 more pages of banter in this thread...

you will thank me later each time you chuckle to yourself as your are up to your elbows in oil...

Dave, your avatar is TOTALLY creepin me out!!! Davey Does Dallas is SOOO much better!!

Bill Belushi. Period.

Been working some late hours and classes afterward. Sorry for the delay in responses. Yes, this thread is active again. I will pull my 258 and put it in Clay's ride. It doesn't leak... much... and it is dependable. I expect it will fail as it sat in the woods for 5 years before I bought it, and the cylinders MUST have rusted up. But I will get some confidence swapping engines as engines be new to me! I'll pull apart Clay's engine just for S&G and inspect it. If it's simple, I'll fix it. I don't have the time or funds for a rebuild right now. I have to borrow a hoist and stand, and that means more crap in my shop!

Comments about the 4.3 I'll place on my thread to knock down some of the chatter here.

I'm off Monday and Tuesday, but Mama has me going to the paint store!!!

Skipper thats what garages is fer, its fer accumulating really big stuff for a one time project and then tripping over that stuff later on then when you is an accomplished mechanic you will have a big garage with all kinds of tools to fix things, but no place to work.

When did you get concerned about chatter?

I think the swap is a good idea. Now Clay needs to build an engine stand for his 258 and rebuild it.

Ever seen a boy who can whistle while smiling ear-to-ear? I think the picture speaks for itself.

"She" drove his Jeep around the yard last night.

I thought you taught your son better than that.

I don't think my clutch was ever the same, after the one and only time "The Warden" drove my CJ.

The T18 is hard to tear up at one time!! Thank God... She took off in granny, so no sweat, but when she pressed the gas to go FASTER, it spun twin tracks in the grass! Just think of all the nice things I could have(had) if I never had kids!!!!



I wouldn't change it for anything.

You are blessed, my friend.

I hope your CJ is always a "connecting point" with you and Clay. It was for my Father and I, and still is to this day, even though he passed almost 20 years ago.

Tell Clay he's in over his head.

I am definitely blessed! And Life goes on...

I picked up another steering gear box for Clay's 5. It is an AZ purchase, reman unit, lifetime warranty, for $150. I'm hoping it will solve the wandering problem in the steering. The gear box that is on there is a JY unit I pulled off a 7. It is better than Clay's original gear box, and it helped a lot. Considering his Jeep has all new bushings, suspension, tires, and alignment, I'm thinking gear box, as there is too much slop in the wheel. However, I believe the caster is off as the steering wheel does not center itself after a turn. I'll investigate that later.
