The top is not too much work. Do you have to drill the tub top rails?

I spoke too soon about the good weather! I was out your way in Cherry Valley today and is was raining and COLD!

Yeah, I will have to drill the top rails. Not a big deal. Looking forward to be able to drive the CJ on cold or rainy days.

The weather turned ugly in a hurry. We were working on putting the engine back together (head gasket) in my son's Nissan Frontier when it started raining and got a little chilly. Put the EZ-up over the engine compartment to keep working in to the evening. I will be glad when this little project is done.

I am a little nervous about the windshield dash bars right now and may end up using heims if I cannot keep the goferit inserts tight, yet another flag.

I am going to give one of their diff covers a try, if it works i'll do a second one.
Did you see the set with the flair?

Also, I will be buying their diff covers when I get back in the green. I got a chance to fondle a model 30 cover at 4 wheel parts, and that is a piece you most likely wont even dent before you fold something else in half.

Cheers!

No, I did not see the flair. I missed it. I'll take another look. Those diff covers are made of 3/8" I think. You are probably right about something else giving up first!

We were on the 10 about 1pm passing live oak and could not see the old car inventory at the car dealer there due to the fog and rain.

Dadamsnv, I went back to the BTF site and did not find the flaired version. I feel like a dork, but do you have a link?

THX!

My eyes started the decline a few years ago, next is the mind I hear! Glad it's yours and not mine LOL.


I would go for a pair of BTF flared fenders for sure. They mention that what is on the site is only a portion of their CJ parts. I may contact them this week.

not to beat a dead horse but the H1 box is a 2002? Thinking i'll do the same. Did the drill-out trick on the pump and the box is about all that is left from original issue in 1981... nervous...

Look it's a 4.6!

Looked at it in the backyard... I did buy a kit to rebuild my Carter, but I'm thinking of buying a webber or going junkyard fuel injection... I did sign up for topless for tatas at rausch creek in August. Unfortunately my CJ will not be ready, so we are taking the gf's rubicon.

Figured out why it was idling too fast. The throttle return spring was worn out. Easy fix. Idling good now.

Installed new battery in '83 CJ-7, an Autozone Duralast red top. Was informed that gold top in the correct size (56-DL) is no longer available. Nice to have a CJ that cranks right up.
