Finished my t176 rebuild getting ready to start on the dana 300. Found out that lock ring plyers are a lot better then using a screwdriver and a finger.

Got rid of my prestolite distributer and ignition box. Now have a duraspark and hei module. Next up, the rest of the team rush update.

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'

Resealed the leaking cork gasket on the valve cover with aviation sealer.

Found the source of my missing coolant as it seams the new Fel-Pro cylinder head gasket is leaking a little when ever the Jeep is at operating temperature. Been chasing this demon for month's.

Being that I work in this heat and humidity chances are good that nothing is being done till it cools off a bit. Rumor has it that heat/humidity combo put the temp about 105 here today. Yeah I'm heat frustrated, frustrated with the heat.

Finished painting my roll cage and started cleaning up the fuel tank. Figured since it is out it would be the best time to check for leaks and some new hoses.

Finished up a few odds and ends over the last 2 weeks. Got the drivelines retubed to proper length. Got the alternator cables rebuilt so the battery is getting good charge now. Plumbed in the air compressor for my Rubi air locker so now my front axle can be locked! Next on the list, anti-wrap bar and front bumper + winch.

With a great Jeep comes an empty wallet.

Made and painted a new splash shield for underneath the charcoal canister. The original one was rusted out.
