well replaced the drivers side inner seal on the AMC20. found out it has a locker in it:



some fun stuff i found out. i got the title a few days ago. turns out the guy i got it from bought it in 1999. he never got the title in his name. so all the stuff he had done to it(engine rebuild, new lockers, new 1 piece axles, auto trans swap, clifford intake, holley 390, headers, etc.) has less than 100(one hundred) miles on it!

however it appears he re-used alot of stuff, like the coolant lines and whatnot. still, this cj is continuing to be a great deal.

yeah i bet! i was half expecting to get it home to find out that they removed the pistons or that the frame was made of rusty looking duct tape. i will say, aside from a few(face exploding), i am very happy with it, and it is coming along nicely.

Oh my god... I got my LS1 started. After 5 months of planning, 7 months of building, and too much money to think about I finally got her running. I guess I should start a build thread now...

I can understand how great that felt. When it takes a significant amount of time on a project and the end is in sight. Congrats to you and start a freakin build thread for goodness sakes.

I relocated my air line from my compressor from under the hood to right in front of my grill so I don't have to streach my air line ove a running engine anymore!

Picked up new axles for my 80 CJ. The stock AMC 20 rear had been spun and something was broken inside the diff, and all the seals were shot, After chatting with the Rad Jeeper he had a AMC 20 rear and and a Dana 30 front from a 78 cj, that he would hook me up with. They are rebuilt with Lockright lockers, one piece axles and 456 gears. So for less than what it would have cost to repair the old axle I got two upgraded axles.

Now that's a smart upgrade at the appropriate time. Enjoy

Took the heater box apart in an attempt to re-build it. So far, so good. Only a little damage to one corner of the box, but thats expected in 38 year old fiberglass....

I'll start a thread on it later.
