But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

It makes it easier when you work by yourself most of the time but you seemed to manage just fine with the cheery pickers.

I saw that you've been busy bending tubing! Sounds like it kinda kicked your butt a little though my friend. That handle gets tough to pull doesn't it.

I know it's cheating Dave but that's what happens after you turn 50.

My back is still hurting quite a bit. Sleeping is the worst time too. As long as I'm fairly active and moving it's not bad but when I sit very long or after I've been in bed a while it really bothers me. I read that it takes 6 weeks for this to get better and I'll be glad when that happens.

I never thought to ask my wife to help! She probably could have handled it fine but it would have been me that had trouble.

Jim,

Since I have been reading your thread I have learned so much that I bet I could follow your instructions on the old school way of "how to remove the bulge in the tub" and apply what I have learned and remove that pesky disc bulge of yours in a similar fashion! Hope it feels better....

Thanks Mike.
I slept better last night for a change. Only woke up twice and went back to sleep pretty quick. This is one of those slow healing injuries so I am working around that.

Well Dave I cheated again today . This has been a nice day here so it seemed like a good day to take off and work on the Jeep again.


Time to get the engine and stuff out so I can get busy on the frame.



Made this engine cradle out of some scrap metal. I can move it around with the pallet jack easily. Helps keep it out of the way while I'm working on the rest.



Haven't seen this part without everything bolted in until today. It won't take long to get the rest of things off the frame and then start taking the paint off in preperation for the galvanizing.

Looking at the 5.0 makes me wish I would have held on to the CJ… but then again, I hardly have to work on the TJ!!!

Bill sometimes I wish I'd have just kept the I-6 and rebuilt it and added EFI with the hopes of getting good gas mileage but SBFs are known for getting pretty good fuel mileage too. I have even thought the Cummins 4BT would be a good engine too so don't feel like the only guy to have second thoughts. One good thing is for you is that you're enjoying your TJ and that's worth a bunch.

Dave I was grinnin and thinking of you when I was using the old forklift. Hey and you want to know what else about the pallet muke...One of my customers gave it to me. He said it was broke and when I brought it to the shop I found out it was just low on oil! I offered it back to him but he told me to keep it.

Now about that gun bearer.
