Installed my door strikers. Thanks to @Jim1611 for making these hard to find parts.

Today I had to REinstall my water pump... It was leaking after my first attempt. I bought a new FelPro gasket for 99cents at auto zone, cleaned both surfaces like an anal retentive crazy person, jacked up the rear pumpkin to drain more coolant out of the block, used brake cleaner to clean both surfaces after using a razor to remove old paper gasket. Cleaned everything again. Used thin film of permatex on water pump, stuck gasket on, put super thin film on engine block. Was anal about not touching or moving anythingout of place. Installed bolts only finger tight and waited an hour for permatex to set up. Tourqued to 13 foot pounds. Now have to wait 24 hours to re-fill and see if it worked.

Don't tread on me!

I found the water neck a b*t*h to install leak free and ended up replacing the bolts with studs so I could slide the water neck into place without any possibility of wiggling around and messing up the sealant. You could use a couple of studs to slide the water pump into place and then replace with bolts after installing the other bolts in their locations.

I run the warn 8247 winch with a 3/8'' SS cable.
Out West here I would think, there might be a bit of a problem with mud and the nylon strap running through the pulley's and the fair lead?
Mine fair lead is a roller and it needs rebuilt after a day in the brush, welded and ground into shape again and again where worn, then the rollers need replaced after some time.
What has been your experience with the strap in the mud under loads?

I avoid mud if at all humanly possible. I need to be careful not to let the line get abraided on rocks, but the same goes for steel cable. Just about everybody I wheel with uses synthetic line, I havent seen anything with it to complain about. The safety factor is what really got me to switch over from steel cable.

Bought a tilt YJ steering column and started to tear it down to paint it. Now to find all the little parts that sprang out.
All the bearings, top and bottom, are shot in the column. Thinking about putting a CJ steering shaft inside the column from a spare tilt column I have laying around.

Getting the Switches out were fun on bench, don't know how you do it installed in the jeep.


Cleaned out the jeep for plowing.
Bolted down the tunnel cover today. Need to install the shifter boots once I get it positioned so it doesn't push on the levers.

What a joy to shift the transfer case now that it is twin sticked.


Found out my plow E-47 lift has a leak and all the fluid drains out of it.
Ca't find a crack or anything were it can be leaking. Need to clean it all off and coat it with baby powder to find the source.

I have had some success with this product on rubber type seals and o-rings. AT-205 RE-SEAL
I don't usually buy snake oil type products but I must say it does help in some situations.
Didn't help on the jack though and I dribbled about 1/4 -1/3 oz directly on the ram wile sending it home about 3 times.

Some of those hydraulic piston seals are made of Nylon and some other stuff, not like rubber.
Simple to change seals if the end cap has a place for the tool to bite. If not some of them these days [the ram and cylinder] are disposable.
I have found all the Case seals I ever needed on E-bay at about 1/3 of the Case Brand price. So far and some over 10 years, No leeks.

If that ram is sweating or dripping it will be on your fingers from the bottom side after operating it a few times, swipe it.
If you never got into one they are an easy thing to repair. Just keep everything clean. The only hard part is removing the cap. The correct tool makes it easy.
Then you can use it to torque everything down properly when finished.
