My CJ is running!!!

For the first time in over 2 years.. I started the CJ today! Very excited!

Believe it or not, I have not touched a single screw on the NOS Carter BBD. It's straight out of the box. This isn't one of the Chinese knockoffs.. It's the real deal made in USA. Haven't touched the timing either from where I set it after installing the reman distributor that has the better advance like the older 258's had. I guess I'm either really lucky, or maybe I do know what I'm doing around an engine once in a while

Here's video of it running! Gotta clean up the wire harnesses and finish installing interior pieces before I can drive it but very very close now!
