Finally took some time to make my manual choke working right, what a relief, it now fires right up in the morning.
No more of doing the pump pump pump crank procedure 5 times to get it running.
As an added bonus in the process I found a vacuum leak and adjusted the carb, it now feels stronger taking of, not bad for a couple of hours work.

I converted my Q-jet to manual choke this weekend.. Man what a difference.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Put a brake new master cylinder in yesterday. Was going to start on the rear disc brake conversion but I have manged to loose the key to the wheel locks

Three trips to the store and several dollars later (I must have the only wheel locks in the world that cannot be removed with an emergency lug nut removal kit ) the wheels are finally off. The conversion will begin right after lunch.

For a small jeep, why 18'? Should it not be the shortest run possible? Thats what i was taught and verified. The wavelength of an antenna is more critical, if at all, than the length of feed line. Also, due to the velocity factor of different types of feed line, signal strength may be affected. (lossy factor).

For my mobile radios, i run the very shortest feed line and the thickest i can apply-- generally LMR400. My multi band vertical on the truck works from 28MHz to 3MHx, all with the same 8' of feed line. Not to flame or anything, but why so much feed line when if its shorter you may mitigate signal loss?

the box looks cool-- does it stay cool under operation?

Bad deal. That's a shame but everyone here knows there's only one thing that comes before your CJ and that is Family. Good luck.

Started cleaning up the new (old) YJ springs. Knocked the old bushings out, that's always as fun as a barrel of monkeys. Put in some bushings that I had laying on the shelf that I never installed yet, flipped the centering pin, and gave it a coat of my favorite, Rustolium in a can.
One down, three to go.

They sure do seem to have a good bit of arc to them. I thought they would be a bit flatter than that. They are very soft and easy to flex by hand though. I was told they were stock, but were on the Jeep when he bought it used so he wasn't 100% certain.

I always have the best luck tuning with the SWR meter when I use a 1/2 wave length cable. I've used a short run before and ran out of adjustment on the antenna. Put a 1/2 wave length cable on it and it tuned right in.

It works, I aint gonna fix it

The bottom of the center console is open. I have never had my head units get hot in there. Then again, it does not get all that hot here either...
