To begin I will say this is a continuation of my build thread I started 5 years ago to share a build I started almost 7 years ago when I was 15 years old. If I knew then what I know now who only knows how this EPIC project would be. I had 9 Jeeps at one time. Was rebuilding engines and others Jeeps, and much more in the automotive world. Learned from everyone I could....now?... Just a mechanic who has an awesome project he is going to finish. The first few posts is what I started with through to how it sits now.
I thank everyone who has supported me along the way, helped me, taught me or encouraged me to press on. This is me doing just that finishing what I started.
Decided to just go for the rebuild kit. The cost of a new Solex is now $50 more than the one I have now. Got the kit on order.
Today while trying to order the Pertronix kit for the distributor, forgot the model number and brand. Remember I rebuilt the one in it now from a newer truck, different one than the stock one. Going this weekend to tinker with it some. Coolant pressure test for starters, compression test, and try getting it running again. Been 2 years since I have had it running, and about 6 months since I have cranked it.
Nice Jake! Don't worry she'll fire up. And as you posted it's all about time. Do it now, because before you know it you'll be saying things like: "man I use to have so much free time", and "I don't have the time". Not saying this to scare you I just to see that damn Jeep in that Hot Red!!
Seems like everyday is a Monday.
Great to have you back Jake! I can't count how many times I've referred your electrical knowledge with so many others. Not to mention in hammering out my projects!
Prosit! you wise sage you!
Edit: I think I'm losing my mind. I thought Jake was JeepHammer
The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep
We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch)
Record heat waves and floods only occur when we visit that area
I remember when you started this build, and its good to see your able to finish it. I was looking for Willys truck parts at the time, and really enjoyed watching what you were doing. Keep up the good work!
