Getting my front diff housing in the little barn dwelling Jeep has been a pain in the butt!
(Bad Back, Can't lift it by myself)
Had a friend over this morning, and we got the gears set up,
A little sloppy, about 0.012" lash, but they are used gears and I'm going to slap a D-44 under there in the future, so it will live though the weekend (I HOPE!)
Brake lines are driving me NUTS!
I'm putting disc brakes on the front of this thing while it's apart, and finding fitting that fit the lines is driving me crazy!
You would think a town with 5 parts stores would have fittings... You would think....
Still keeping the manual brakes (this ain't no 'Barbie Jeep'!) so I have to change the master cylinder while I'm at it and make up lines that fit...
Lot's of sore fingers/knuckles from that manual double flaring tool!
Anyway, looks like I *Might* have the little goat on the trail for Memorial day weekend!
That would be good! Mostly stock, mostly junk, and 100% 'Hillbilly Engineered'!
Got over 1 Foot
of water in the garage yesterday afternoon!
Rained 3" in just over 20 minutes here, flash flooding everywhere, over 2' deep in my back yard!
My Backyard, 21-May-10
Everything in the garage floor got wet, and my fuel tank actually floated away and I had to chase it down!
Looks like everything is on track for RedBird/Jeep Clinic Weekend!
Unless I REALLY screw up, I'll make it with a broken down little Jeep and some tools!
