Bought a bunch of new toys for it......Clutch kit, winch, winch plate, recovery strap, 4* shims, radiator hoses, bellcrank, shifter boot, clutch fork boot, master rebuild kit, new belts, and heater hoses. Now I just have to put it all together.

Buddy of mine started working on my frame at his house. I told him one if my mufflers sounded pretty quiet and felt solid compared to the other one. He cut off one pipe to gain access to a section of frame and said my entire right side exhaust was full of dried clay and mud. Thank you, po, for wheeling in mud holes and not cleaning up afterwords. I'm lucky the engine didn't get water logged.

1959 CJ-5: Spent a good part of the afternoon tearing apart the front right wheel hub because the drum brakes for some reason decided they wanted to expand and put huge pressure on the brake drum and cause the jeep to pull to the side. Once we figured out how to get all that stuff off the axle shaft, everything looked in really good condition. We then figured out how to adjust the brakes, but still get grinding about after about a 3/4 rotation, even with the brakes adjusted all the way in. It was time for dinner, so we stopped. Will resume tomorrow.

Told the family to drive two hours to pick it up from our house at the lake so it will be there for me to tear apart when I get home.....


34 and a wake up!
