Kind of a Tom Sawyer move convincing the kids that washing the jeep is "playing outside". Wait till they're 16, then try that one...

Well they were ready to go in before we were done, but since they were so good and stayed out till we were done they earned ice cream. Nothing Tom Sawyer going on here.......

Well today was one of those days that made all the work worth it. Both my jobs this morning rescheduled and the wifey was home. Partly cloudy and 60's outside, so we loaded up and made about a 45 mile out of town mostly 2 lane black top drive. She even got to jeep way a TJ! Just does not get any better!

Well officially fixed my oil leak as of 4 days ago. LSUtiger had the a repair suggestion that sounded better than replacing the gasket, "Tighten the bolts." Well it worked, tightened the bolts in the front up a tad and no oil pan gasket leak anymore. Have put around 75 miles on it since then and not another drop!

Well for lack of anything better to do today I started another little jeep project. A while ago Paul posted a picture of a fab job he had someone do on his factory air cleaner to fit on to the 2100 and I decided "I can do that" so off to thinking I went.



Bought some 30g ducting from lowes.



My plans are to cut it down to about 3 inches tall and then weld it to the base of the 2100 filter plate I have been using.



Then I am going to cut a hole in the top of the 2100 filter plate I have been using for the original air cleaner horn to fit in to.



Then weld it to the factory air cleaner and then to the lower piece.

No problem!

I thought about fabbing it myself but I am lazy and can't weld. Here was my original drawing that Dan worked from when he fabbed mine if it helps. The total height of the main horn at 2" cleared the choke plate when fully opened. I would check the total height of the stack to make sure you clear the hood.

Well got everything fabed up.

Cut a 3 inch hole in the top of my 2100 air cleaner top for the horn on the stock cleaner to fit in to.



Cut 1 inch off the horn on the stock cleaner. Removed all the emissions stuff off the stock air cleaner.



Attached the bottom of the 2100 cleaner to my ducting.



Then cut the duct down and put the rest of the pieces together.




Still got some work to do to it to finish up and will not get a chance to do it till this weekend. I need to fill the holes in the air cleaner where I removed the emissions stuff, finish up sealing the adapter I made, and modify the bracket the sits on the valve cover that holds the air cleaner in place. The 2100 sits a little taller than the carter did and I need to raise the air cleaner about a inch higher off the top of the valve cover to make it level. Once all that is done prime and paint! Will post up the finished product pictures this weekend some time once I get done.

Well I have to thank Paul for this one. He did it a while ago and I had it bookmarked for a day like today! The air cleaner I was running on the 2100 was perfect to do this with.

Looks great!!! Since the MC2100 is taller than the BBD I also had to raise the mount on the valve cover. Unfortunately I lost the original bracket but you have it and could just add spacers and longer screws. I have to fab one out of some scrap metal, carriage bolt, washers, spacers and a few nuts.

That is pretty much the exact way I was planing on doing it.

Well future plans are to stop spending money for at least a month so my wife does not divorce me and burn some gas!

I have my ashtray painted and ready, the driver knee duct thingy, new lighter, and a new plastic glove box all wainting to go in. The next money I spend is going to be on driveshafts. The front is bent and I need to get it retubed. The rear I need to repalce with a double caraten shaft. The angle is more than it should be and every once in a while a ujoint binds and "pops" when it moves. Going to cut and relocate the perches on the rear for the second time when doing it. Thats around $400 or so there.

I currently have a 258 and one day want to go 360. If the 258 last it will be the very last thing I do after bodywork/paint, bumpers, lights, winch. Really would like to get a few more years out of it. I developed a tick about 6 months ago that is more than likely a lifter. Going to pull the valve cover sometime soon and look around. I know these 258 can go years with a lifter tick but I am toying with the idea of replacing the cam and lifters to get rid of the tick. It just bugs me. I figure that will be around $300 total. If I do that I am going to paint the engine up nice to match the tranny / tcase. I just cant decide if I want to throw $300 at a engine I am likely pulling in a few years.....

So thats the future plans, maybe paint and body work at the end of the summer.
