Great job on the filter housing MoC. I actually like that type filter better than the performance filters sold. As you stated water and mud are going to get on the engine but it won;t be getting on your filter. Very good choice on how to fix a potential problem.

Going to order one of those ducts that runs from the cleaner to the grill. Think I am going to install my lighter, ashtray, glove box, and knee duct this weekend!
Well looks like I have made it through my running issue as posted in the May be down in out post. Replaced all 6 rocker arm bridges for $1.23 a piece and got it all mostly back together last weekend. Thursday I installed the clutch linkage back (had taken it off to clean up so oil from running it w/o the valve cover on. Drove it Thursday, yesterday, and today for about 30 miles total and is running fine again. My tick is still there, but not quite as back. Also painted my valve cover when it was off.
Still planning on doing the 360 sometime when the right one presents it self.
Also did something fun today. While over at LSUtiger's house I had an idea. As we all know CJ's come with a single Spartan low horn. Brady has the 77 waggy carcass in his driveway still from when he pulled the 401 out. It had both a high and low. Took the Spartan high horn off the waggy. Cleaned it and my orignal low horn up.
Gave them both a coat of black plastic paint.
The bracket on the waggy hi horn was just right so they both fit in the stock hole by placing the brackets on top of each other.
Just ran a additional hot wire from the orignal low horn to the waggy hi horn. The horn grounds through the bracket to the inner fender so that was all that was needed.
Looks stock and sounds much better than my horn did before.
Forgot to mention that this was a GREAT weekend!! Listed my 2006 Moomba Outback V on craigslist Wednesday night at 7pm for $29,000 and got a call on it Thursday morning. The guy came buy Saturday and it was sold by 12:30 for $27000. Now my carport is clear of the boat and I can park the CJ under it when needed. Also can work under it and get to hanging my waggy front end up as well.
I got rid of a boat for a Jeep... one of the worst things I ever did..... Of course mine didn't have some sissy name like Moomba!
The boat was on the way out before the jeep came in to the picture. I got used the 06-08 summers and only was on the water around 5 times since then. Just did not make sense to have that much money tied up in something we did not use.I must say I was happier the day I sold it than the day I bought it!!
Under A Sun Thats See It All Before...
You can get an idea of the heat intensity and flavor by chewing up a seed with your front teeth. My favorite for almost twenty years was the Habanero, but after I grew the Fatali's last year, they have taken the #1 spot with a much better flavor and more heat.
Good luck, my peppers and for the most part my garden are a flop this year.
1978 Cherokee, 360/T400/QT...5.3/4L60E/NP241C in the works...
MoC- I missed seeing the status of your Jeep!? Did you find the answer to your problem?
Yes sir, found some bent rocker bridges. Repalced all 6 for $1.23 a piece from auto zone and I am now back in the land of the running. Looking for a 360 still, want to get it done around mid summer if all goes well and the 258 stays running till then.
