Finished rear brakes...every piece fought the entire way! But I won!

I need to order to a new e-brake cable, it was frozen in the sleeve. Also, installed a new fresh air induction hose and pre-heater hose from the exhaust manifold to the air cleaner!

Finished the blower motor upgrade and replaced the heater core while I was at it. Nice to finally have some heat.

Looked at it, looked at it...wished I had 3k to finish it.

Your not pushing the limits of your jeep until your on your side, then something breaks and it's time to go home.

replaced the thermostat and water pump. next task is to replace the clutch master/slave cylinders and the radiator. then I drive it and see what else needs to be tweaked or even replaced/fixed. just trying to remain patient right now is all. sucks to buy the jeep only to have it sit in a garage for two weeks now but I'm definitely leaning a lot mechanically. it'll get there. mahalos all, joel

Took a vacation so have been puttering on it all week. So far I have replaced the front seat belts, checked the timing, replaced the spark plugs, and rebuilt the carb (Holly 650 cfm). Tomorrow I will repair the passenger seat frame and hopefully enjoy it a little before I have to fix something again.

I wire wheeled my transmission, marine cleaned, metal etched then applied 2 coats of POR-15. The only drive train component that is left to complete is the transfer case.

I did the blower motor upgrade and am in HEAT HEAVEN!!

Better to have Jeeped & Rolled Over then to never have Rolled Over.
