A few people told me that if I pumped the clutch slowly a bunch of times it might start working again, but I didn't notice any difference in the feel.

Is it unusual to go through a MC in less...

Soggy Clutch

My clutch suddenly stopped working (feels soggy), and I'm have some trouble figuring out which part went bad. Right now I can only get into gear if I turn off the Jeep.

Initially I assumed the...

I'll see if there's a good place to anchor the leash, and maybe hit up a truck stop to grab a fan for extra credit.

That's not a bad idea actually. Assuming it doesn't rain, of course.

Every year I do a couple of backpacking trips near the northern border of Minnesota. Its about a 300 mile drive one way, and my wrangler doesn't have AC. As you can imagine, it gets miserably hot...

No, I still haven't fixed this. I took a little hiatus with this, because the zero progress had me just a little frustrated.

I'll see if I can't pick up "Step Drill Bit".

Thanks again for all...

A hardware store near me was closing, so I picked up an extra set of titanium bits, and couple of cobalt bits. But I'm still stuck on the last 3 bolts, with virtually no progress.

Dutch, I tried your tactic and it worked with mixed success. It was working really well, but I can't drill through the last 3 bolts. I've tried hammering a pin to start the hole, different sized...

Yeah, that's probably solid advice. But I know once I do that, its my last option. So I guess I'm just afraid to f that up.

Project nightmare continues. Impact drive isn't enough to budge these bolts. When that didn't work, I bought a a set of heavy duty extractors and snapped the thickest bit in the bolt. At a loss here....

Hopefully it won't come down to it, but how much did the shop charge you to remove the bolts?

I've already spent almost as much money on these bolts as the doors cost me. Granted I only paid $115...

I've already tried a torch. Surprisingly it didn't work.I plan on keeping the hinges. Although I'll probably repaint them and the doors.

The doors aren't in that great of shape right now. They...

I think there is still enough metal left on the head to try the impact tool. I might as well try, since it probably can't make things worse. Another good idea. Thanks.

Great advice guys. I don't have access to a welder, but maybe I know someone who does. I'll try to get this finished this weekend.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who's run into this problem.

Immovable Hinge Bolts

I'm swapping out the hinge bolts on my doors. But a few of them refuse to come loose.

Since they were stripped and rusty, I let some penetrating oil soak in before using an easy out. The bolt was...

Yeah, I wouldn't hate to see that write up... I'm 6'4 and that steering wheel is right in my lap. Wish it was adjustable. If I'm wearing boots, I can barely get my feet to the floor.

Attempted to adjust my doors yesterday. The top hinge was easy enough, but there's a couple bolts on the bottom hinges that were already stripped.

What's the best way to get these out?

Its not the prettiest handle, but it works. Cost me $4.50 for the paracord (with plenty to spare), and about 15 minutes to weave and install it.

Thanks for the idea guys!

That's awesome!

Is there anything underneath all the paracord? Or did you just weave that whole thing from scratch?

New (to me) Full Doors!

Finally found a good deal on some full doors. For $135, they're in pretty good shape, but need some love.

The windows roll down but there is enough resistance that it feel like it might snap. I'm...
