It may translate in its mounting with loose frame nuts, but it wouldn't rotate any because they make you drill that extra mounting hole in the frame below the winch plate. That extra hole acts like a torque arm for the box bracket and keeps it stable.

So you had movement too!? MUCH more than Clay. What's the significance of 1124 and 1125?????????? I think you have a typo...

It may have been 1724 and 1725. Or the last 2 or 3 pages, I'm 2 tired to go and look. It's from all the heating, bending, drilling, tapping , Videography and extensive set up with producers and directors, not even to mention gaffers, best boys, and the stand by painter.

See, I'm wore out just from typing it all, and the Co-executive producers were a real bear to work with.

It was worth it though , if it helps even the tiniest bit with Clays Jeep.

So l end with this.

Bill

On edit, insert the name Scottie for the word sweetheart .it would be Scott-T. ROFLMAO.

BTW, it took about a hour and a half, (includes a coffee break)

I know that song! And American Grafitti was one of my very favorite movies. That's Toad in the car, and the car belonged to his friend Steve. Toad owned a Vespa.

And I have all my teeth! Thank you very little....

I keep thinking that we will make this Jeep tight at some point, but it keeps defeating me! Why is that?

Little problems with Clay's rig... It has been sputtering lately, and the gas mileage has plummetted. Upon looking under the hood I see it's blowing oil out of the dipstick tube again. Whassup wit dat!? So I scratch my head, grab some tools, and try to psych out the dumb 'ol Jeep. I can't let it know it is besting me. I stick my vacuum gauge on manifold vac and crrrank it up. I get ~15hG vacuum. Down from 21! Hmmm... I discover a leak where the MC attaches to the booster. I'm thinking maybe I'm loosing vacuum at the booster. So I call my buddy up... Buddy Bill... and I ask my 'ol buddy... "Whaaaaaaaat?", and he says "do this" and "try this". And being the unquantifiable expert that he is, I do it!

I pulled the brake booster and PCV out of system and block them off. Checking vac now I have 20 hGs of vacuum! Dang! So I explore THAT, and you know what I discovered? Huh? Do ya??? Of course not... ya'll ain't that smart. That's why I'm telling you all this stuff. Get this... the little plastic 90* elbow that attaches to the end of the PCV is leaking. That little piece that gives the nice application to the vacuum line. It's freakin leakin! So I get rid of it, plug the PCV skrate into the valve cover, vac hose sticking skrate up like 'Ol Faithful, and I gots 20hG vacuum! Undog the stributer, twist it a might, and I get 21. Twist it back to 20, dog it back down, lean up the carb a bit, and call it good. So I'm thinking, "I lost all this vac, causing the engine to have crankcase pressure, blowing the oil outta the DS tube." I think I got it licked!

So just this minute, Clay walks in the door, having been visiting at a friend's house. I had told him to take some Purple Power and clean the oil depsoits off the block, which he did this morning. He told me he forgot to lock the hood down... again... and now there are MORE cracks in the glass! #^(&^@#!

And he says it is squeaking, somewhere between the engine and transmission. I guess the mice are growing tired.

Skipper yes we all have a love hate relationship with our Jeeps, they change up more than a female changing her mind. But once your there, you are addicted!

And some guys get so twisted in the mind that they own a fleet of Jeeps!

Now I aint saying this type of personality is plum crazy and I wont say that Bill is a defective unit. Dang it I promised myself I wont say Bill is a defective unit oh well it slipped. Well I guess one could say that if you have two Jeeps your a glutton for punishment any more than that you need professional help.

I just wanted to update what is going on with Clay's Jeep. If you have been following my thread about PCV/Vacuum/DS Oil Leak, then you will know that his engine is puking oil outta the dipstick tube. Since I can't seem to figure out this problem, and it's looking more like a rebuild, I went ahead and bought a 4.0L to put under the hood. I ended up getting a '97 from a friend. He bought a whole Cherokee for the purpose of putting the engine in his Jeep. He has heard it run, and he pulled the engine. I bought that same engine. In fact, I also bought the Cherokee as a parts car. It sounds like this swap should be very easy, with most of the difficulty being in the wiring. The engine is an OBDII, and I'll have to adapt the wiring. Should I make a separate thread for the 4.0 install, or should I just tag it onto Clay's thread? Should pick up the engine Friday. Wish me luck! Nothing ever goes the way I read about it!!
