Not to overstep in 8pitcher, but which manifold do you have? I have an extra of the 78 style where the exhaust manifold bolts to the intake's bottom. It is cast iron so it's heavy, but it's free to whoever needs it... I got it with my exhaust manifold when I broke it last summer, and won't need it.

On edit... it is for a 1bbl YF... may not be that desirable..

I think the plug would be wafer thin at that point. But a valid idea.

Leaning that way, especially after this particular day!

Thanks, Trent. I think the benefits of the Clifford intake will outweigh the hassle of fixing my screwup.

Skipper here is what I would do if I were you, just weld up the bolt hole and not worry about bolt on your power steering bracket. Structurally you will be good with out it and trying to weld a boss to the manifold will be problematic.
Yes, Geo... that's is correct. You are very astute. And adept!

Are you saying use only one bolt for the bracket??

Thanks, Rick. I was glad to toss that setup on Clay's Jeep. He has MY intake and Paul's exhaust!!

Skipper yes you should be good with only one bolt. I have run the Clifford manifold myself and it is a high-quality unit. My only complaint with it is the intake runners are too large which slows the velocity of the fuel air mixture at lower rpm's and that can cause stumbling when taking off from the stop. The manifold seems to come on at about 1500 rpm's below that rpm it stumbles and hesitates.

I stumble and hesitate anymore myself! At least I won't need a laptop on the pass seat!!

Sorry, Dude... that was uncalled for. But it sure is funny!!

I will probably never notice it since I am so lo-tech. That fact that it rolls under its own power is totally hypnotizing!

Job interview at 10:00 in the morning. It is with the state Park Service. Less pay, but only 8 miles from the house.

Got another interview Friday morning at 9:00. It is FWC in Lake City. Not sure I am entirely qualified for the job, but it depends if they are willing to train. I have little experience in GIS, and this position has some requirement. It involves developing programs for wildlife habitat management on residential lands. I would be good at that aspect. Just gotta learn ArcView.

My girlfriend works with arcview and arcGIS. She's by no means talented (her words) but all kinds of people keep bugging her for help, so she must be decent. Its a very marketable skill.

Good luck man! Maybe you'll be a GIS expert makin big bucks!

I'm looking for a Scout II Dana 300. Drop me a line if you have any leads. Thanks

Do you find it as a high demand skill where you are?

Nah, she's an environmental scientist with a minor in geology. She was the only one willing to learn it at her old job, now she reaps the benefits.

Interview One is over and done with. It went well, but it was totally unreadable. I don't have a good or bad feeling about it. It's in God's hands. Let's see what happens.

Someone gave me this scripture the other day Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden on the Lord. He shall sustain you.

They say money can't buy happiness but it can buy Jeep parts...and Jeep parts make me really Happy.

No Gazzo. Sustain... as in sustained... as in supported, or continued... it means God will always give you a Jeep repair!

Today I got the intake and headers bolted up, the power steering pump, and the new alternator installed. I still have to seal the hole in the intake, and I have to rebuild the carb. Also, I have to connect the headers to the duals. Then I'll be ready to start up. I still have to reinstall the windshield frame and glass. I think I'll just paint it an odd color that I have on the shelf, rather than trying to paint it the final color, since I'm not sure what color I am going to use!

The big pending repair is changing out the clutch. Bill gave me a deal on a gently used clutch a short time ago. I have never done this, but I'm sure I can get it done. I'm planning on driving it, chatter and all, for a little bit before I drop the tranny. The weather should be very Jeepy here in 3 or 4 more weeks. This winter I am thinking I will pull it all down and do the frame-off repair it deserves. Also, I need to do the regear for front and rear axles... another courtesy of Bill!

I have the option to bring home an '04(?) Cherokee for $200. It has no drivetrain except axles. The interior and body is near perfect. I'm thinking I could use the seats in my 7 and the Chrysler 8.25 axle under Fallon's Cherokee, then part it out. Should I go buckets (I like Clay's) or find a better bench set up? This decision has an impact on whether I get the Cherokee.
