I can relate. I nicked the power line going to my shop with my hedge trimmers a couple weeks ago. 1/2 the power in my shop doesnt' work now.

I said the same thing..."that little nick didn't hurt anything"

5 seconds of not paying attention's gonna cost me a couple of hours or running a new line from junction box to breaker box.

Hey Moc I'm not sure if you painted your rims black or they came that way? If you painted them what did you use?

You happy with the beads? Got my 31" BFG AT's moved over to some OEM chrome wagons this morning. Couple of them have 5-6 wheel weights on the outer rim. Kinda BLAH after all the work I did cleaning up that chrome!

5-6 wheel weights? Hope none are 180° out from each other.

I'll check, but don't think they are. What is the significance of weights 180 deg from one another?

Nothing other than one weight is counter acting the other i.e. poor job done balancing the tire

I stuck with weights, I could not get them to balance out with the beads.

Parking the 86 for a short while. My oil pressure has been low after the 360 install. Once it has really really warmed up I was getting around 8-9 psi at idle. After driving around in the heat at 55mph today it started reading down to 6.5 - 7 psi. Ordered a pump rebuild kit and mid plate from BJ's today, hoping it does the trick. We leave on vacation in 13 days for 2 weeks to Colorado and I might not have time to get it done till I return.

Has it dropped a lot from the initial start up? How does the oil look?

Oil looks fine. The cover was worn when it went back together and I was worried about it then. I should have replaced it then. It's has not dropped more that around 2 psi.

Hoping the mid plate will do the trick.

Only 12 days to go. The countdown has begun.

wm69... I would suggest the reason you have so many weights on a wheel is that it's warped. Pretty common problem with welded steel wheels. Sometimes it is bad enough they have to be replaced right out of the box.

Might be. I haven't even driven the Jeep since I had the tires mounted. It sure looks good though!
