Screwed around with my powersteering, installed the new tubes I got from Gene's:




Tried to get at the prop valve (wow, that's tight now), ordered some fittings to convert to -an hoses from the master cylinder to the prop valve.

And cut my finger...Damn...

Made up a new sub dash panel to go underneath the new Dash.

Used 1/16 Alum, put a 90 degree bend in the bottom and but holes for the Steering Column and Glove Box.

Now need to add mounting holes and mount the Dash Pad along with the Diamond Plate Dash.

Next I need to wire up the new heater/AC unit and on to the Main Circuit Panel; the list never stops.

Do it right the first time !

New Alternator / Voltage Regualtor / Sea Foam Treatment

I installed the new alternator ( finally got the right one after 3 attempts ). NAPA came through . I'm going to go to them first from now on. They cost a little more, but if it takes more than one trip to the discount places, the cost of gas makes up for the NAPA price. New voltage regulator also. Treated the upper end with Sea Foam. Took it for a drive in the country and seemed to run a little better. Still needs carb work. Picked up the rebuild kit today ( MC2100 ) and a gallon of Gunk carb cleaner w/ parts basket. Never rebuilt one before, but what have I got to lose.

Installed valve cover gasket for the 3rd time. Seems the section that goes around the head bolts (258 6 cyl) kept slipping off the mounting surface which gave me an oil leak. Will know in the morning if I got it right this time.

I put the sway bar back on the Jeep and installed the RE sway bar disconnects that came with the lift. I also cleaned the gunk off of my transfer case and decided that it needs to be opened up and rebuilt.

Added a leaf to 2.5" Skyjacker front springs to handle additional weight of Warn 8274 winch and mount. Used second leaf out of stock Jeep front springs as add in leaf. Had to file out center bolt hole in leaf but everything worked out well. Regained lost height.
