I couldn't think of a better honeymoon vehicle so work harder to finish the other 5%. Congratulations!
Thanks for the kind words! I'm really glad that the people who follow this thread have enjoyed reading and seeing this progress. It's been and still is a heck of a journey. I'm still tinkering away as I'm waiting for some more parts to arrive. The garage gets cleaner and cleaner each week! If the weather works out on Friday, it may be driven to work on its first longer trip! (about 25 miles one way)Deer Slayer, I ran across your thread today and ended up reading all of it - TODAY! You've been on quite a journey and it's impressive how much of the work you've done yourself. The CJ is looking beautiful and it's really something to be proud of.
Ax,Concerning your engine leak. My 258 valve cover leaked at the back of my engine one time, after I replaced the valve cover gasket. At first, the new gasket solved the leak problem, But soon started leaking again, the rear stud broke after I installed the new gasket. The leak looked like it could be coming from the rear main seal, but it was the valve cover. When I found the broken stud, I replaced the gasket a second time, and the leak problem was solved.
