Completed the MC2100 swap and got rid of all of the spaghetti under the hood. It took running to Napa to get a new gasket, as the first one leak something terrible.

Found the exhaust leak I heard last week.

I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep, I fixed my Jeep!

I'm a touch excited...or maybe just touched.
The problem was the bolts that the mechanic used on the pully in front of the damper, they were too long. So two dampers and two pullys and three gaskets and a huge nightmare later the awesome owner of Spitfire Racing Engines figured out what nobody else could. And I reassambled it today after grinding off 1/3 of the pulley bolts.

YAY ME.

Drove it on the freeway, tried 70mph but that was way too fast. Had to settle on 65mph.

I dreamed about it. Only 5 more months till I get home again and can drive it, or should I say drive it for a day, and fix it, and then drive it till it breaks again, and then leave it again for another few months.
