PO had tried to run the exhaust with Glasspacks out the side in front of rear wheel. Doing this with the stock exhaust manifold is tough, and they had pipes hanging way to low to get outside the frame, and was really loud. I had local muffler shop install dual pipes and dual turbo mufflers routed inside the frame to the back and out at 45 behind the rear wheel. ($350 cash out the door) Looks really neat and has a nice sound. This brought to light the manifold leaks. I pulled the manifolds off and both sides where blown/burned out at the center two ports on the bottom. Cleaned them up, probably should have had them surfaced, but didn't. Used Mr. Gasket ultra-seal gasket, replaced all the bolts with grade 8 bolts and all seems good for now. Will check the bolts in a few days to see if need snugging up.

Didn't notice the big warning light was 120v until I tried to figure out why it wouldn't come on. Need to replace it.



So, this control box can be tucked away? Are the black and red switches in and out?

were is the like button?

Popped the crankshaft pilot bearing out using the grease and bread stuffing trick. Worked like a charm!

Why are you posting about working on a car in a Jeep forum?


Rule #1, NEVER call a Jeep a car.

Picked up the sand blasted wagon wheels. Rinsed the media off. Washed them down with Dawn to get any residue dirt/grease off. Blew them dry with the leaf blower. Then hit them with 2 coats of primer. I'm glad I decided to restore the original wagon wheels instead of buying new rims. Going to hit them with a top coat next weekend, weather permitting.

Yep, tuck it away in the console when not in use. The dash was too far of a reach for me to permanently mount the switches there. I wanted to be able to use it comfortably while in a tough situation.
The red and black are momentary push buttons, in and out. The big switch is a main power for the remote box. Pretty simple project, only took about an hour to do.




Got some use out of it today.

Swapped in a new carb. Glad to have the Carter out and gone, loving my new Weber 38.

Finished up the wiring in Dad's CJ5. Also wired up the driving lights in the bumper.

Tried to adjust the good ol' reliable Carter BBD. I just set the idle mixture screws to factory (4 turns out) and it sputters and dies at curb idle once it warms up. Once it dies, gas leaks out the base. Float adjustment or just need a new gasket? Dies at 1:40.
