Well last night I had to replace both u-joints on my rear driveshaft. I went under the Jeep to put on a new muffler and bumped the driveshaft and noticed that it moved about 1/2-3/4 of an inch in all directions. Pulled the shaft and two of the caps on one joint had the bottom part broken off and there were no needle bearings left anymore. For some strange reason that solved my mysterious clunking noise, the banging in corners and a random squeal that started...

Cut off the two rear body bolts. Cut a hole in the floor to remove another one. That only leaves one more bolt before I can remove the tub. Then the fun stuff starts.

Remove engine
clean frame
Por 15 the frame
Fixing rust on body
ect, ect ect....It never ends.

Hehe I'm doing the exact same thing as you, 84jeepcj7. Except I bought a dashboard and windshield frame locally here for a good deal. The dash was pretty nasty, but it was totally rust-free, so I tore out all the gauges and the stainless overlays yesterday night, then ground it to the bare metal and sanded it smooth. I had already taken the glass out of the windshield frame I bought (it was tinted blue and I didn't like it), and I'm going to use the glass in my CJ7 now and install it in my new windshield frame tomorrow. I also ordered all the gaskets and everything. I'm in the process of coating the dash and windshield frame with POR-15 tonight, and then I'm going to prime, sand, then prime, then paint tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have enough time to get the glass in and install everything.

I'm also going to tear down the front end and grind, sand, prime, and paint the fenders, hood, and grill. I'm also going to hit the firewall with some gray rust coverter and clean it up really nice. When I'm done she should be looking a LOT better, but I still have the body to grind and paint as well, and 2 minor rust holes to patch up.

And hopefully with lots of that POR-15, new weatherstrip and gaskets, and lots of silicon, she will be leak- and rust-free in the future...

FINALLY fixed my popping and sputtering

Some of you have read my posts in the last six months asking for opinions on why my newly rebuilt engine is popping and sputtering on acceleration. I have checked out everything that everyonme suggested. Thanks, by the way for giving so much input. While checking the fuel pump pressure, I discovered electrical tape in the rubber gas line. Maybe my mechanic had the steel line coming out of the fuel pump taped shut while he was working on the engine and forgot to remove it when he hooked up the carb?!?!?!? I don't know, but you are looking at one happy CJ owner now!!

Yesterday:

-Changed motor mounts
-Resealed oil pan (please dont leak, please dont leak, please dont leak)
-Found X-Case shifter linkage holding on by 2 threads of a hand loose nut. . I tightened that up before bad things happened. Nice catch, me!
