I was always able to put a clothespin on the valve stem after compressing the spring.
First time in 30+ years. The Mission Impossible CJ5 came to life today. I finally got the correct starter, and it fired right up.
No funny noises, no leaks yet, the clutch works smooth and it goes forwards and back and stops. Good oil pressure and the temp stayed down even though I didn't have enough coolant to top it off. Topped off the P/S reservoir and turned the wheel back and forth to bleed the air. and I've got power steering also. Merry Christmas. To All!
Nice.... Very Nice, Rodney. 30 Years ! That's a work of Love that has paid off . Great Job.
For spending 30years sitting in the woods, the old girl is coming along. I Used VHT Vinyl Dye, and got a decent match on the Land Rover Jump Seats, to the VW Pissant front buckets.
Steering column is back in and P/S is bled and working.
That cracked me up! And congrats!!!!!
Thanks! When I was 15,in 1966 I got a job at a Motorcycle Shop. assembling new Bikes when they were delivered in the crate, and general shop kid/gopher. Since my name is Rodney I was instantly nick named Rodney Rodent.
Today’s goal was to get the 231 in.
so what is going in the B? Duffer style sbc?
I actually bought another Dauntless. Boston Bob is going to deliver it soon.
Not sure if you would like me to click the like button on this one?
After and before…
Who knew that Santa shops at Walcks!
Finally got around to installing the Holley 8007 I bought a few years ago. Running great!
Starting installing the Holley Sniper.
O2 sensor is perfect
made a new bracket for the throttle cable.
sure hope it came with power steering
I took my '68 project jeep out in the snow for the first time. The jeep has Lock-o-Matic hubs. I rebuilt them when I put the jeep back together. I wanted to see if the hubs actually auto-engaged like they were supposed to.
In 4wd the front hubs indeed engaged.
II was able to easily drive up the side of the road in the snow. Those are all my tracks. I was the only one out there having fun today.
Very nice looking Jeep!
