All I can say is that it is very powerful. It says to pull the handle until it stops, when performing each stage of making a double flare.

If you do pull the handle firmly, it's almost too much. It a crisper double flare than pre-flared lined that I've bought. I pull the handle a little less than recommended.

So...I'll bet that it will double flare stainless steel brake and fuel line tube. If you (or any one else) have any of this s.s.line, and would like to mail me about 4" of it in an envelope, I'll perform a double flare for you just to see how it goes.

Drove it to the auto parts store, but not to get Jeep parts.

If it has rollup windows and A/C it ain't a Jeep. It is a rebranded Dodge!

Water will create a steam clean effect, I prefer atf because its full of detergents that will help break up the carbon buildup. Atf seems to work better for me, but yes water can be used as well.

I installed all 9 new light sockets LS6225 in the clock, speedometer(except for ebrake and 4wd), volt and oil pressure and leds. There should be no more finicky gauge lights and no more socket cage and bulb getting stuck in the gauge when you go to remove it. I used button terminals so no butt connectors -pretty clean. My interior courtesy lights weren't working so I checked everything out. I must have moved the switch some when install the socket in the clock because the switch was no longer getting ground to the dash and therefore wouldn't work. Things are getting pretty set straight behind there.

I went after a Different Qtrac transfercase for mine today.( exploded mine in 10000 pcs) ended up with a sweet running complete AMC 360,with HEI, and fresh 2100 carb, th 400, q-trac(with low range), 2 spare q tracs.(also complete) all for $450.00. was a long drive, but think we did ok on the deal. The guy had 360 set up so i could hear it run, check out the q-trac.......etc.. all of it came from a J10 truck.

Pull the 2a out of storage. It has been in that hole for almost 3years (pour girl). Had help from 2 friends.
I had put her up on blocks, but the 20 year old tires and tubes just couldn't handle it anymore. 2 of the tubes leak.
Well, now I have the fun of unloading by myself.

This morning I aired up the tires, put some new fuel in, and hooked it up to a battery charger. Left the charger on it while I cleaned the area up that I'm going to park it in.
A place I'm hoping is going to let me get it in and out easy enough to drive. About 2 hours later, the 2 tires where still holding air, so I hit the starter button. Sure enough turned over 3 or 4 times and fired up.. Left her running while I disconnected the tie-downs and put the ramps down and drove her off .

Hard to kill a L134. I had one in my 42 GPW. Just a bump on the starter and it would fire right up. Its still running today (this was back around 2002) a guy who was restoring a MB bought it.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
