Kind of forgot the ignition... Didn't you?
Hammer, can I just connect the dizzy and ignition module and then power the module with 12V?
Moc, points or electronic ignition.
A new project?
Bill I guess you could say this is a new project of sorts. I found a nicely priced 5 early this week online. Talked to the wifey about it and got permission to buy it as long as she could go spend the same amount of money I was spending on something for herself. My initial intention was that it would make a good future project for my son and daughter so I negotiated a price and set up a meet. After doing so I started having some second thoughts about taking on another project when my current one has a long way to go still. Decided it was still worth buying and if I did not rehab it then I could part it out. Over the last month I have been toying with the idea of parting a jeep out as a test run to see if there was any money to be made doing it (both short/quick term and long/slow term) to fund my jeep problem.
Picked up the jeep and brought it home. After going though it yesterday I decided that it just was not a really good choice as a rehab future project for the kids.
So here I am.. Going to get it processed and cataloged over the next week. I have a friend with a 4 bay storage unit that I can use some space in for free to store big parts like frame, tub, axles, etc. Planning on having some parts for sale by next weekend.
After a month I am going to evaluate the cash & part flow and decide if I want to get in to parting or sell what I have and call it quits. I can never make as much parting as my company makes so this is just a hobby for jeep money. Wife said I can keep whatever I make so doing it and put it towards the jeep.
The engine was said to run. Was asking about starting it so if it did was going to sell it whole and if not going to pull the sell-able parts and scrap the rest.
This is what I got.. 1978 CJ5 258/t150/d20
-Its all there
-Has hard top and doors. Going to clean and paint them before I sell. They are in decent shape.
-Has factory narrow trac's with factory 4.10's
-Tub has a clear title. The rear paz corner has been cut out but it came with a new patch panel. Other that the corner the tub is very solid. Going to weld the corner in, clean it up a little before I sell it.
-Windshield and one fender are bad but the rest of the body is in good shape.
So thats my story.
