I did a nutter. heres a detailed explination of the vaccumline routing i used and it works great. no oil blowby, i advanced the timing 8 degreese btdc. heres a detailed reply i did for a guy with pics http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/ol...85/index8.html post 110. I did a team rush using the original ign system and used a carb rebuild kit that came with the jeep and no issues at all with the original carter bbd. Make sure the stepper pin is 1/8th where you can see the shoulder.

Thanks for the link to the write up. Should come in handy when I go to do the nutter bypass.


Last time I was under the Jeep, I noticed the rear pumpkin cover had two little rust holes in the top. So I pulled it off, expecting to see either water or mud inside, but was surprised to see it was still full of clean looking oil! Also saw these numbers painted on the pinion gear. Do they have any relation to my gear ratio?

Back to my holy cover though, my solution to the holes was to weld a drain plug over the hole, and weld up the other small hole. I couldn't upload a pic of the finished product though. Turned out good, and now I can easily drain the oil. Might add a fill plug at the top too.

The numbers you see on the pinion are for the factory setup I believe.
For the ratio,there will be numbers stamped on the ring gear.
Enter them here.

I seem to remember someone saying to count the teeth on each gear, and divide them to get the ratio. The numbers painted on are 42 and 13, and it looks like there is 13 teeth on the pinion. That would make it 3:23 gear ratio. Never heard of that one before.......

Picked up some 16 gauge steel today to start fabricating the new wheel well arch. Gonna have to make it in three pieces, but I got my fingers crossed! The left side is still good, so I'm going to trace it on a sheet of plywood to use as a form to make for the new piece. I'd be diving into that project tonight if I wasn't heading to camp tonight for a day of hunting tomorrow. Half of me wants to stay home and do this though!

I am looking forward to seeing the metal work! Amazing that the diff cover rusted all the way through, but strange things happen on jeeps I guess. The rear diff on mine has a hose sticking out where the fill plug should be, who knows what that's about LOL.

Been a while since I have checked in. Looks good. You should be able to do this one with your eyes closed!

Tell me about it! These Jeep builds play hell on your hunting season. It's hard to focus on anything else without wishing you were getting some work done on your build. I normally take off today for the early ML season and hunt today and tomorrow, but instead I'm at home taking care of some outside winterizing tasks (it's my lunch break) because my weekends are usually spent on the Jeep. Playin' catch-up! I couldn't skin up a deer right now without major re-arrangement unless I do it outside.

I hear ya! Last year I had to do my skinning outside because I had a non rolling jeep parked under my hoist! That's not the case this year

Was just looking at the original owners manual that was in the glove box, and was amused at this page. They must know that I spend more time under my jeep than in it. Those jacks can give way at any time!

"Stay calm and be reassuring to the victim". Sounds like something every CJ owners wife should be taught to do!
