I'm more worried about them swinging down and smacking your head on the edge...

Swapped out the water pump on my 258. PO installed a clockwise pump on the serp-belted engine. Cools much better now that the AF is flowing in the correct direction!!

upgraded my 73 CJ5 to power steering today, pretty much a unbolt and bolt back on....but as we all know, that is never really the case with a 40yr old Jeep

Wheeled it. We had just enough rain the last two days to turn everything into a muddy, greasy mess. Took a few newbs out with us. They did OK and had a lot of fun.


Still managed some "big boy play time".

Welded the chevy 350 in place and mounted the turbo 400/np 208 combo. Found out the driveshaft I had made was too long so I'm gonna stretch the rear end with xj springs. Comp cut the rear yesterday and picked up some springs. Hopefully will put everything in place and finish up wiring next weekend. Just ordered a fuel cell too.

Replacing the cruddy plastic windshield tie down points to beefier stainless. They can do double duty as general hood carry points.

I finally got all new defroster ducts and tube in, the originals were completely missing. That is NOT fun to do with the dash in place.

Well decided I didn't feel like waiting on the fuel cell and saw a good deal on one on Craigslist so I went a head and canceled my order and got that one from that guy. 15 gallons and almost the perfect size. Now just to stretch the rear, install fuel cell, and finish up some wiring and I'll be good to go.

It has tabs that come off the sides. Think I need to make a set of straps for it?
