Drained the transmission, but got caught in a downpour before I refilled. I'll have to get back to it in the morning.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Power Steering Pump replacement, round 2 (round 1 failed when I missed the parts place and had to reassemble my old leaky one for the week):
This time I had the new pump (w/resevoir) and had rent/borrowed the pulley puller kit ahead of time (fellow Canadians, Parts Source loans them). Old pump off, drained, pulley puller worked a charm to remove the old pulley and install it on the new pump. New pump went on fine, put in new PS fluid and bled the system and she sounds and seems fine. Will know tomorrow for sure after a test drive.

Sheered off rear seat bolts, round 3: Bought a 1/4 cobalt metal bit and it cleared 2 of the spots I was stuck on, then it too broke. $13 drill bits make a nice ping sound when they snap in half. But I was far enough then that I finished off the other 2 bolts (killing 1 additional regular drill bit on the way) and got the brackets reinstalled with new bolts and nuts. Worst Jeep job to date.

So long but successful day: PSP replaced and rear seat re-installed.

Replaced my 1 year old smitty which blew up last week. This ARB is a tight fit on the ABS tray, and a fun install project. It will be nice to air up faster than I can air down .

Completed my custom hood pins... (write-up and pics coming soon). Basically took the idea of the autofab/Daystar assemblies and made it out of Stainless steel on the lathe at work.

I thought about installing one of those in that spot, glad to see it fits. I have been toying back and forth between that and adding a York compressor, kilby bracket and the whole deal....anxious to hear how it works out for you

[QUOTE=RnEmOvr;15641885]Was going to work on the jeep but realized I have no room in my large tool box, 40" wide top and bottom snap on, so I went to HF and picked up a roll cart for $100. Then once I got home I found out the shed was not big enough for both boxes so I had to rearrange some stuff. Then once I was done I started stripping the bin of scrap wire so I can haul it to recycling yard. About 1.5 hours of stripping wire and I am not even 1/4 way done. I figure there is about 50 pounds not stripped.[/QUO

get some lighter fliuid and burn it off. it goes pretty fast

Drove up to the Santiago Mine up above Georgetown. Besides having a good time, I confirmed that the Jeep seems to overheat after a sustained long crawl. The temp gauge never exceeded 210*, but whenever I stopped to hike I could hear the coolant gurgling. Once it overflowed a small amount. This doesn't happen around town.

I am nearly certain this is old coolant, so a flush and maybe a new thermostat is going to happen soon. And I should figure out if the fan works...

Only reason I am not doing this is some of the wires are rather small. Plus longer I take stripping it the more time I have to acquire more so the pay out is larger. Also copper is down right now.

Aha! I'll add a new cap to the list. Thanks!

Still have to do the flush in case that's the original coolant from ten years ago.
