after recovering from rainier and adams the last two weeks here is the progress I've made on the jeep.

rear tail lights and markers are all wired up and functional. Replaced the flashers with electronic and now the LED's blink as they should. However I'm having issues with the front blinkers, issues being they dont work.

I've managed a few small treks out and about with the jeep since I got her running but my dog Ollie had her first ride in the jeep this weekend, the wife and I though it was a pretty monumental moment.

thus the overwhelming quantity of pictures just backing out of the driveway.

we have a small field across the road from our house, Ollie and I drove around it for a few minutes and the wife snapped these shots as we were dinking around on a small gravel pile.

And here is just one last picture for no good reason other than I though it looked neat.

Awesome, Man... just awesome. We climbed over a similar gravel pile when we got Clay's Jeep out of the shop! Our version of rock climbing! Proud of you, Bud. The Jeep looks great. The mountain pics are fabulous. Glad you didn't fall into a ravine!

well ran into a bit of a snag last night, was working in the engine bay and spotted a chalky white residue all over my exhaust manifold. This just showed up, I put 50 miles on the engine this weekend and a few issues have reared their ugly head since then. This one appears to be the symptoms of an extreamly lean running engine.

This is the first real drive that was put on the engine since I've replaced both the intake and exhaust manifolds, could this be as simple as a vacuum leak somewhere? Any idea's on what to look at first?

ok after a discussion with our shop mechanic at my work, he said that most likely what I am seeing on my manifold is burnt off paint from when I painted it black. He said that those high temp paints are pretty much worthless for manifolds and that the white residue is basically an ash left from what burnt off.

I will attempt to scrub off the residue and see what is underneath it.

Yeah, yeah... I agree. Freaked me out when I fired Clay's and smoke started rolling out from under the hood!! Manifold is under the residue!!

DRIVE...

well I had a pretty rough weekend as far as the jeep is concerned this weekend. I was looking forward all week to finally installing a twin stick kit on my sloppy Dana 20 and having a smooth shifting case. Unfortunately after installing the new kit I cannot get the right stick to shift at all. Appears to be completely seased stuck. I can shift the rear wheel linkage in between high low and neutral, but no matter what I do I cannot shift the front wheel linkage at all it is completely stuck. Not sure what to think or even try with it at this point....

Looks like I'm going to have to put the jeep back out of commission right after I finally got it running again. Me = frustrated.

So you can't put the rear in low and then put the front in low too? The interlock pill inside the transfer case will not allow you to shift it separately, you have to engage the rear first then the front unless you remove the interlock.

tried it with rear in low high and neutral, couldn't get the front to move in any case. The shaft is all the way against the case at this point.

That's strange, did you move the jeep and try again?

ya, I had it in first and reverse multiple times rocking back and forth trying to move that stick. Any more force and I would have bent the darn thing.

Did it work before you put on the twin sticks? or haven't you tried it in a long time.

Mine would lock up on me all the time, the more I use it the easier it got..



Also, be sure to rotate your fuel filter the right way...

haven't used it in a long time... 2+ years. The linkage was so sloppy with the old setup that I assumed that was the issue. I reefed on that shift rail pretty hard... much more and I worried things would start breaking.

Check on the fuel filter... always get that orientation screwed up.

I don't even want to talk about my fuel gauge at this point... more than done with that one.

All new wires including grounds straight to the battery and I still get a drop in ohm's at the gauge. Gonna call autometer and give them hell till they send me a new gauge.
