Put on my Jeepforum decal, read up on some upcoming projects, and ,in contrast to Hack, drove around with the doors off... sorry Hack, we'll be getting it again tomorrow according to the weather "experts".

Test fitted new alum valve cover, so I can tap two holes. Also started cleaning off oil and grease from engine. Looks like a leaky head gasket. Maybe a complete rebuild instead of freshing up. When will it end?

Installed new shocks, new temperature sending unit, replaced the heater core, re-installed the soft top that I stitched up last night ( with my leather awl ). More tomorrow. I've only owned it for 3 weeks & I'm hooked.

I'll try this again. I put 4 new shocks on it. I replaced the temperature sending unit. I crawled around under it looking for issues ( found some ). Removed the heater assembly and swapped out the heater core. It's almost back together ( still need to put the battery / platform in ). Put the soft top back on ( restitched it last night ). I've only had it a few weeks and it's official. I'M HOOKED!!!!!! Looking for a welder to start patching the rusty body.

About an hour ago put in a new "working" horn button, re-glued the rearview mirror for the umpteenth time (finally read inst. 18 hour set time), and screwed in freshly cut shifter plate. Nothing like late night tinkering, better than late night tv.

Here's what I did a few days ago:

Installed a 32/36 Weber,
Nutter Bypass,
Fixed the horn (again),
extra ground to the Dizzy,
adjusted carb,
found out that brake fluid really does eat paint,
Heard a new noise (clunk!!) while turning the steering wheel,
Made a bracket for the TFI and attached it to the engine block
found more rust bubbles,
and a failed attempt to get the filler plug off of the tranny.

More to come next week!

I picked up a Lincwelder AC-180-T for $100, that works perfectly and had a nice drive there and back in the 80+ degree temp we're having here. Today, going to order my new floor and body panels and go for a nice cruise looking for some new trails.

Pulled the parking brake cables off. Gonna run to the 4x4 store tomorrow to look for longer ones. Funny thing about the parking brake is that another name for it is the emergency brake, lol.
