|harleydragon||OH NO !!! I spotted a drop of oil ( yes,1 drop ) on the concrete under BadBoy..Everything is new on this jeep so it freaked me out that my baby was bleeding..Turned out that it was just the fitting in the block that feeds the oil pressure gauge..So,false alarm..I did put a new fitting in it just to make sure...|

|Tahoe||Howdy all ! I'm only on here every so often. And you are right about the wrangler thing. I have had all except the JK (yuc)- '64 CJ3B, 92 YJ, 02 TJ, and most recent, '78 CJ5. SO far I have replaced the seats, top, wheels and tires. All gauges are functioning, the only issue is the heater core is leaking so I had that bypassed. Don't really need it down in Texas. Showing 71 k miles, had 69 k when I bought it last year. From the second owner, who knew the original owner so I believe the miles to be accurate. Gonna keep her as stock as possible, 258, 3 spd T-150, and 1 bbl carb.|

|harleydragon||I have been considering cutting a full hardtop down into a half top similar to a scrambler hardtop to go on BadBoy..Just have not talked myself into pulling the trigger yet..|
|10-14-2013 10:30 AM|
|Quinnzeeskimo||I just got my hard top fitted as well. just not on yet. it also doesn't have any windows so that doesn't really help haha|
|10-14-2013 09:03 AM|
I'm also retired so the CJ gives me a lot
to tinker with.

|Piratecj7||Winter is coming up here in Michigan so I just installed my hard top for warmth for the winter|

I found a broken leaf spring shackle mount on my front frame so I used this forced repair session to attack a long list of 'some day items' for my cj which included:

You're an absolute machine brother. Sounds like you're getting ready for a government shutdown or something.
Raining all day down here so I took off my two perfectly acceptable doors, sanded them down, wiped them down and painted them once again. An absolutely successful way to waste an afternoon.
I'm definitely deducting 1/365th of any money I owe in taxes this year for every day the government is shut down. I gladly pay my taxes because it pays for the government to operate. It's not operating. I'll show em

|Quinnzeeskimo||Well now most of my gauges work. kinda lol. they work better than they did before witch was not at all. I finally got around to getting my pics on my computer. The car in the back of the one picture is my other car.|

|harleydragon||We have been driving Junior around the farm a good bit this week.Of course our lab always rides with us.There is a gap between the rear bumper and the body that worried me.I have been worried that her leg would slip in the gap and break it as she jumped in and out.So a few days back I welded a piece of 1/4x1 1/2 flat metal in the gap to prevent that.It was a small thing but we have been too busy enjoying life to do much jeep work..|

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Just checked out your CJ-5 fan. I love it. When I was in high school I had a blue '80 Renegade with the 304. I miss that Jeep almost 30 years later. We did everything to include hauling a race car with it which was kind of exciting to say the least. On to other things.
The Howell injection is done. Install looks great and I was able to use the AMC breather which I have hosed to the air intakes at the front of the grill. We had a hell of a time getting it timed. The diagnosis is a bad pick up coil, Summit sent me a new distributor overnight and it's sitting in the shop now. Probably won't get it put in until next week then it's off to my buddies fab shop to outboard the springs and drop scout 44's underneath it which reminds me I need to order the lockers today.
