I think it really is kinda fun. Figuring out what wires you don't want and then rebuilding it.

Good choice. My experience is that's worth the extra cost over the cheap ones. Looks good Alex

My oh so tired CJ5

3/26 - Today I measured how much 1/4" steel line I'll need to buy so that I can replace the return fuel line from the engine back to the gas tank.

I've had the Jeep for 17 days now. When I got it the thing had been sitting for eight years out back in the woods. It had been tinkered with a bit a long while ago (six years or so) to determine if she was salvageable and they decided to leave it for dead.

This is my first "daily grind" post, so perhaps a little catch up:
3/9 - dragged the Jeep out of the snow with the help of my uncle.
3/10 - borrowed a trailer to go pick up the Jeep and get it home.
3/11 - empty all the miscellaneous stuff out of the Jeep and scrub / wash inside and out, change engine oil & filter, air filter, fill coolant, steal the boat battery (short term loan). No start.
3/12-15 - find a wiring diagram online and start re-creating it in CAD, comparing my wire colors with diagram and taking notes.
3/16 - change the fuel pump, fiddle with radiator hoses. No start.
3/17 - change the water pump, only to find out that the pump shaft is the wrong length.
3/18 - crawl around in the JeepForum.com site looking for a solution to the water pump. Remove carburetor and scrub the outside. Partial diss-assembly.
3/19 - more carb parts cleaning. 1979 water pump is in at parts store, pick up and install - nice fit.
3/20 - found a source for idle air screws to replace broken / stuck screws in throttle plate, successfully removed old idle air screws from throttle plate.
3/23 - replacement idle air screws arrived in the mail, assemble carburetor and make bench adjustments. Install on Jeep. Start! (also contend with a fuel leak in the return line - quick fix for the moment)
3/24 - tool around in the back yard with the Jeep again, discovered that fuel is leaking onto exhaust from another location in the return line.
3/25 - assess and tally: less than $100 to get it to start and drive around. List of parts and issues that need to be addressed - way too long.

Dropped the gas tank so I can hook up fuel lines. Do I need a liquid check valve for anything? I'm taking all emissions **** off.

Installed rampage halogen headlights, pretty decent fit, look good but not sure I'm impressed with them yet. Seems my dimmer switch isn't working so I'll have too see about that and see what else may be holding them back.
