Hopefully getting some work done to it on Monday. But today at work I finished welding in a drivers floor pan on a 2012 jeep 4door wrangler. I'm hoping to run some of the wiring on the jeep monday20190223_154050_1550966844207.jpg

Didnt get any work done I the jeep yesterday. I was at the pic n pull grabbing some parts for it and by the time I got back the weather was just to cold and windy to work on it outside. I decided to clean up my stock distributor and price together an hei ignition for it. I wanted to just get a complete hei distributor but getting a good one and sticking with in budget wasn't happening. I have a GM hei module and a gm coil with a heat sink on it. I already have a wiring diagram for it and just need to figure out where I'm going to mount the coil. It's a gm style e coil so I can mount it any where.

I went threw and made sure the vacuum and mechanical advances were working properly and cleaned and lubricated everything that needed it. The magnetic pickup is gapped properly and is tested with my voltmeter. Every thing should work out okay km hoping. I will also order a good cap, rotor and wires when it's time to get it running.

This is the coil and module. I will be making a small cover to go over the module to keep it from getting wet20190227_133601_1551292673202.jpg

I have it wired up. I'm going to make a small box to cover the module to keep it dry

Had 20 minutes to spare so I did a little bit of work on the jeep. I managed to get the under hood harness attached to the fire wall. That was it20190303_152219_1551647060749.jpg

I've been searching threw my garage for the last 3 days when ever I have time and I've come to the conclusion that when I purged the garage of junk the last time I must have scrapped my carburetor. I had a few different carbs that were given to me for parts. They were all junk, and im pretty sure I accidentally threw out my carb for the 360. I was looking for it so I could order a re build kit for it. Im now on the hunt for a replacement one.

Talked to a few guys about some carbs. Might be picking one up this weekend or next week after work. Also tested the home built hei set up and it works and I have spark at the plugs.20190308_162204_1552085970263.jpg

I took a video of me spinning the distributor by hand and you can hear and see the spark on the plugs. A couple of the other guys in the shop thought it was pretty cool to watch

Picked up a carb this afternoon. It's the same 2 barrel carter that was in it before. Will get a rebuild kit for it and take some pics when I can.

Here's the carb. It's all tore down and soaking. Gave it all a good cleaning before setting the peices into soak. Wrote down all the adjustment settings before taking it apart. Will order a new rebuild kit this week.

It looks better in person and should work just fine when I'm done with it.

Still need to grab another switch and light. Il probably just get a hand full of each. Im sure il need more later anyways. But the wiring for the panel is finished.
