Also is there suppose to be fluid in the shaft tube of a Dana 44? Also moved the rear seat back 5 inches for more leg room. And last thing was wire brushed, primed, and repainted the passenger handle. All was done a work, I love having a garage and all the tools you could think of.
Yes you should change them.

So when you ever get a girl friend and take her for a ride in your Jeep topless (of course there is no innuendo here) post a picture Pictures / Women in Jeeps / Post them up. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/pi...em-up-1375594/

Well crossed another small project off the list.

I replaced (but saved) the window washer bottle, pump, strainer, hose, and cleaned the nozzles.



And now have a working window washer.

Finally got my clutch linkage right by repositioning the bellcrank. Drove it with what felt like a brand new clutch!

last w/e 40 miles from camp and 30 of that rough trail, the in tank fuel pump decided to die. What a PITA to get her home. Raided an abandoned ranch for some parts, etc and hack fab'd in the emergency spare external pump-- problem is i did not bring the bag with fittings, hoses and clamps. FML!

taking the strap-- both of which got pretty much destroyed.




the emergency fix



pulled tank and pump is for sure dead. Now to shop for a replacement... want to do an access panel in rear tub, but the tuffy tool drawer is in the way...

pick up sock-- yuck. we found all sorts of nasty stuff and even water in the tank...

This post reminds me of the old episodes of the A-Team and McGuiver. Great job though. I probably would have been S.O.L.

Installed the windshield back into the painted frame and bolted it up to the jeep and all the wiper linkage and wipers, installed the seat frames and began to put the wiring back into the jeep, Cleaned up the old gauges and checked all the light bulbs.

I have probably another 2 weeks worth of work before its back together before I can fire it up for the first time in 4 years.
