Nice video. I can’t tell you how many Dana 20 transfer cases I’ve gone through. I’m sure it’s in the double digits.

It is my understanding that some of the block and radiator sealers require oxygen or atmosphere as they seep out so to cure properly. Not sure 100% but if you use JBweld and it does it's job the other sealer is not going to know what to fix. I would use the block sealer first the crack will be there if it doesn't work.

I typically ripped the case in half, or lost the gears. I haven’t broke one since I put the cal track bars on.

I took mine to the local 1/8 mile drags strip last night. Traction was a big problem, BFG all terrains are not drag slick! Best I could do was 8.5’s at 88 MPH My 60’ times were terrible 2.20’s. It was fun though!

RN, that makers perfect sense and I wish I had leaned that sooner. Started first with jb weld... another lesson learned.

Cj7 is holding its water, so far. Ran for about a half hour and no leak. So far so good.

Installed the hood and all its stuff...hinges, latches, tie downs and rod to hold it open. Double check me, ball end of rod is held to the hood by a plate with a round hole and the other end goes into a bracket attached to grill/radiator rod.

Got some new LED tail lights installed.
It was tricky.

Had to do some grinding first

Then it fit

Then some welding to finish it up.

Last night I took the Bikini top off, filled the cooler with water and Gatoraide and took the boss to our Jeep Club's monthly cruise in. Last month we had over 60 Jeeps of various types. Last night about half that number showed up. Last night we had 12 CJs to show up so we were the majority.

The last to show was fellow JF member Jeepfellow and his grandson George in his 79 CJ5 complete with canoe. It was good to meet them and Nelson you are welcome back anytime, but I'm going to hold you to the promise to bring the CJ2A. The Boss said you have to bring George. He was a big hit with her and the other ladies--not a bad choice for a wingman.

Got rid of a very rusty plate today.

Does anyone know what the yellow and orange holes are for?

Looking for a place to route my wiper hose.

backplate.jpg

Also check out the green holes in the old plate. That's where my PO made a poor mans tilt wheel.
He lowered the end of the steering column so the steering wheel sat higher.
No wonder I had no Problem fitting behind the wheel in my '5

Just so you guys know I wasn't sitting on my butt today I also
1. Installed fresh air Plenum made sure all flaps work properly
2. Installed heater assembly after discovering why it wouldn't fit before.
3. Installed new defrost duct and diverters.
4. Drilled holes to attach courtesy lights on the new dash.
5. Removed old steering column.
6. Cut and weld the Tuffy glove box to fit in it's new location

I only know the upper orange hole or 'U' shape is for clearance for the rubber grommet of the washer fluid hose. Don't know what the other holes are for since my CJ does not have them.

Thanks, I kind of suspected that U shape was for the hose but wasn't sure.

I thought this was off a 84 CJ but maybe it was an YJ tub on a CJ I took it off.

I found this picture but it's a copy of a copy of something Fatman posted. So I don't know the history.

The yellow holes are for the factory spot welds that held that plate to the firewall. You have figured out what the U shaped orange hole is for and I have not been able to find a picture with anything going through the 2nd orange hole, but have found pictures that show a bumpout in the firewall the stands proud into that hole so it was there for something.

bob4703,

We had a pretty good time up there with y'all.

I thought y'all were taking up a big donation to fund our 55 mile trek.

I guess we all lost track of it when all of those females started swarming all over me and George!

Tomorrow I might install my new rear main seal/ pan gasket/ oil change on Willy,

He should be ready for the next return trip, George says he's game too.

He just don't realize what the women situation will be like when we pull up in Willy!

---JEEPFELLER


OK Mr. John

What sorta heater are you sticking in the '76???
