I have thought about it. I can't begin to count the number of times I made a decision on Clay's Jeep and then did something completely different. It would be fun to rebuild the F Head, as I have never rebuilt an engine, but I see that thing with a V8!! And I hear it rumbling... Who knows... I have plenty of time to think about it.


CJdogtoy called me today. We had a great chat. He's working his tail off, which is good, and he sends his regards to all.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

I just hope that when my kids are old enough, we can find a decent project jeep… something better than the last 5 I had… There are plenty of days when I kick myself for selling that 5 though!!!

... I guess I'm gonna have to fix that too…….

You still have one of the most classic avatars I have seen. I'm just busting your chops because I'm too far away for you to arrest me!

Well, Son... come over here and let me 'splain something to you. First, if you don't clean up your room, you aren't GOING to eat. Second, if you call me Pops again, I will turn you over my knee and paddle you until you glow! Now that you know your choices, which ones are you going to make?


He could always arrest me the day we finally all meet at Moab!! If he could reach me!

Called AJ. He comes to the rescue once again! He brought over a monster slide hammer. I removed the lockout hub assembly, outer bearing, etc, and he bolted his hammer to one of the holes on the lockout hub. WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! Sproing. Off it came with the stuck brake shoes. Now it rolls so I can put it away.

The inside of the hub looks brand new. The grease is fresh! The PO stopped by yesterday evening to pick up his cash, and he told me that the 2A and the 3B have been sitting in the woods for 15 years. It's interesting how the tub can be "gone", but the internal mechanical things can look new.

Whoa... It's like, Cosmic, or something! I have been robbing parts from my 7 to put on Clay's 5, in the hope that we will get it going "sooner" than later!

... I guess I'm gonna have to fix that too…….
