I stripped the end of the antenna wire to retrofit a new male end for my stereo because the old end stopped working... and then discovered why it stopped working and why the new end I bought won't work... back to the drawing board haha! Starting to think of just replacing the whole thing with an after market mock up that already has the correct plug attached because I keep breaking the stupid wire trying to get it to maintain its connection.

Finally got it on the road today. It's a great feeling when all the hard work pays off and you don't have any problems.

I installed a stock fan, pulled the front axle, and prepped for rewelding perches. The rocket-surgeon before me had a crappy weld and then JB Welded the perches in place. Needless to say, the perches snapped right off the axle. The u-bolts were finger-tightened. Glad I didn't drive this thing before they snapped, could have been bad.

Woot, almost have the 55 3B back together. Engine is buttoned up and I bought nine A belts this morning and hopefully 3 of them will be the right ones. Also ordered an ARB for the front axle as I wanted to get the solenoid valve installed while I have direct access to the front axle manifold (aluminum block in lower left corner in the lower jpg). Also need to run a lot of wire yet.

Removed exhaust headers in order to install an o2 sensor to monitor my air/fuel ratio. While I have them down I'm stripping them and painting them. Spent $15 for the bung and the installation. Replacing all manifold exhaust bolts, gasket, flange bolts and gaskets while I'm under there

Sweet! Thats a lot of motor to sqeeze in that 3B. Looks really nice.

Is that a Edelbrock intake? How did you like the fit of the AirGap? Did it feel any different when you sealed and torqued it?

Replacing drive line U-joints, welding an H-pipe into the dual exhaust, and upgrading to MagnaFlow muflers.

Lol...can't wait for all the little things to be done? Does that part of the process EVER end? Like having kids, everyone wants to wait until you can afford them...does that ever happen? I say drive it through the "little things"

Well today I sat there and stared at my new tranny and transfer case and my jeep. Trying to think of when's a good day to do this swap.. Anyone know how long it should take to swap a t150 for a t176?

Finally finished welding in plates on the tub where the body mount bushings went through. Above the front mounts, I had two fist sized holes. It ain't pretty and it was a PITA, but I am glad that it is done. I am waiting for my bushing set from 4 Wheel Parts so I can finish.
