I tried to put a power brake assembly on from a 79 CJ7 and found out that the push rod for the brake bracket is 3/4" short. Needless to say I ripped everything off and I will stay with manual brakes until I can get the rod extended.

1894 CJ7 - 258 -crappy manual brakes

Removed the AC compressor (dead clutch), fixed the leaking thermostat housing. Adjusted the throttle linkage to enable full throttle on the injection unit. Discovered dual cats in the exhaust. I think my SB conversion may actually be fully street legal!

drained and filled the T-case, checked the front and rear diff's, sorted out the t-case linkage, then dropped a few gallons into it, and brought it home, (FINALLY)

Finally started working on drawing up a template for my new dash.

That's pretty much it though. I swore up and down I'd be out there working on it every day over my spring break... but it's just too damn cold.

I actually got a lot done today.

Put in five new wheels studs on one of the rear wheels.

Finished drawing up the dash. Just need to cut it all out now.

Made a throttle return spring bracket for the MC2100 carb, and fixed the throttle cable going to it.

Finished up putting in the manual choke.

Worked on cutting off the bumper the previous owner had welded in.

I finally cut down the huge lift shackles my brother put on my CJ...they were 2" lift shackles, made the Jeep nearly impossible to keep between the lines especially on a rough road at highway speeds. I have stock springs so no need for lifted shackles. I simply drilled new holes on 3" centers and cut off the excess, trimed corners, ect...and wha-la...new stock length shackles. The CJ is a pleasure to drive now! But Murphy still got me today, flat tire, ripped sidewall...geeze. Oh well, now it's time for some new 31" TSL's

Discovered a fuel leak coming from the front of the motor......Great just what I need, it's not coming from the fuel pump, lines leading to the pump, looks like it's coming from behind the lower pully on the front of the motor!
