I took my Hi-Lift Jack apart and sanded it down. Repainted it and all the parts are hanging in the garage curing. The hood mount for it should be here Friday.

[SIZE=3][FONT=Times New Roman]Project engine build: I actually start about a month ago when I bought another 4.0L for my YJ. I decided to beef it up a little. So I dropped the block off to have it bored .30 over and fitted with Keith Black cast aluminum pistons (3.905 in. Bore, 5/64 in., 5/64 in., 3/16 in. ring grooves), a mild cam kit with duration: 250 int./256 exh., [COLOR=black]a double roller timing chain. a new crank and main bearings. We took the head and ported it. After it was ported it was dropped off at the machine shop as well to be rebuilt. My buddy at the machine shop put the cam in and fitted the cam bearings and did all the hard stuff. More to follow!

Part II:
Basically all me and my roommate have to do is put the crank, main bearings, main caps, timing chain, oil pump, distributor and head on block. Then oil pan and valve cover. Once the engine is together we will pull the old engine out of my YJ and install the new one. A rough estimate on the new horsepower should be around 290. Once I break the engine in then I’m going to upgrade the injectors and throttle body to squeeze a little more horsepower out it. More to follow.

Valve cover rebuild!

I took the valve cover completely apart and cleaned it thoroughly. Replaced the baffle gaskets and put it back together.

Well decided to replace the valve cover gasket. Hoping it will solve the oil leak and I wont have to spend the money to have the rear main seal done. Ok took off cover, took off old gasket. Went to put new one on and dropped a bolt down into the engine. After about a half hour and the purchase of a magnet got the damn thing out. Replaced the gasket then had to leave for work so didnt get a chance to run it. Hoping tomorrow.

Also junked the cheap speakers that were in my sound bar and put a little better quallity Kicker speakers in it. Sound 100X better.

Drove around to 4 Junkyards, two "U-pulls" and two "they pulls" and called one more to find a MC 2150 carb (or anything better than the Carter that's compatible) and didn't find a single one.

She kept idling insanely low - like 100-250RPM and acting like she was going to die on my way home (I've had this problem a few times in the past)... Re-tuned my 1972 Carter ONCE AGAIN for the insanely warm change of weather here in Iowa when I got home. Though she probably didn't need it - It appears as if her choke (or something related to that system) is starting to go bad... causing the screw to miss the point where it's supposed to keep a consistent idle - so at idle she was essentially getting 0 pressure from the throttle... Looks like I'll have to spend the "big bucks" on ebay or try and beg around to other Jeepers for one... Anyone wanna' help a Jeeper out?
(PM Me, if you have a spare one, seriously, I tried looking through the "for sale" section and CL and can't seem to find one - I'll pay a reasonable price for one I need to clean and "rebuild" but $150-$280 is just ridiculous in my mind)

Is your Jeep Carb? check the fuel filter on top of the motor with the 2 fuel lines going in to it. the side going to the carb has two lines coming out.make sure the vent line is at 12-O-clock. mine did the same thing. This was the problem. Good luck.

I put the rear seat back in. It came with the Jeep, but even the brackets weren't mounted. I want to take the whole family for a short ride before I start taking things apart to repair the rusted body mounts, etc.

Tried to get a new ford style canister blaster 2 coil and a few other things from the parts store... The coil will be in Sunday... The rest they couldn't really give me an answer... SO I figured I'd just take 'er to my Dad's garage and do a general "look-over" and tuneup... Replaced my valve cover "exhaust hose" (The rear one that connects to the open "elbow")... Pulled her plugs and appears either my timing was too advanced or in running too lean - the Haynes manual comparison shows a "too hot" condition. I'm pretty sure my carb isn't running too lean... So I backed the timing back down to 8 from 12... Couldn't hear any difference in the engine.. But when I had it at 8, the last spark plug check they looked okay.. So figured that's be a good starting point... Discovered my exhaust pipe was just about completely disconnected from the exhaust manifold- so tightened that down as far as I could...

Took a straight crow bar to the valve cover as a "stethoscope" and pinpointed that my tapping sound is definitely coming from #1 and maybe #3 or #4... so I'm going to have to crack the valve cover open ASAP... I'm scared of what I'm going to find... Debating about just pouring some ATF in there and praying it goes away.

Brought my dog with me to "help"
Wish I could've gotten a picture of her when I came out of the parts store - she was leaning out the window like that but with the "elbow" hanging over the window like a person would while driving- but she wouldn't stay put.

I rode down to the beach with my two girls celebrating 2013 Top less day. Saw a convoy of yj's and a few cj's on the rode all topless!! We all waved at each other.

Just had a great time in the beautiful Florida sun!

I added a pair of recovery hooks to the front bumper a couple days ago. Went wheeling with a few people in my club yesterday.

New Wheels

I just installed new wheels on my 93' YJ today, purchased from summit, ($46.00 per) but had to paint and use my old M/T wheel caps though. Wow she really looks good, what a difference!
Next thing is to get the rear end up 1-1/2" -2" to get her level with the front end. If anybody has any experiance with this, I love to hear how you did this.
I am thinking about either just adding a leaf and or a new set of leafs.
The leafs that are on it have lost all arch and are flat as a board.
