    Not very winter-like here in North Carolina.
    Gave the grand-kids rides in the Jeep.

    Happy New Year:

    All the wiring hooked up and secured (except the fuel pump) for the Holley Sniper.

    I’m using the Holley in tank pump comes with new sending unit. The O ring they sent didn’t fit well so I reused the old ring.
    Off the side is a rollover valve and the return line.

    Talking of snow flurries tomorrow, but with a ground temp in the 70's, no real cause for concern. I don't mind the snow as long as I don't have to drive to work.
    Did get some rain last night.

    auto-locking hubs would be a nice addition for me, as I live in the snow and relegated to leaving hubs locked and transfercase in 2wd until I hit the snow/ice/dirt road back to my property. Either way I would have to stop to engage the 4wd, but can shift out of 4wd without stopping once I hit a cleared road.

    Going to look at the next possible drivetrain for the 3b. It has a $0.00 price tag and came out of an articulated forklift. No doubt if I decide to use it there will be a landslide of changes to make. A new frame would really be needed but that's not going to happen.

    I'm trying not to spill the beans about the engine but I've wanted one for some time now. I'm hoping it has an sm420 though...

    I pulled the bikes out to run them, and while the jeep was accessible, I stuck the key in to make sure the battery was holding a charge. It showed 12+ volts, so why not fire it up! I opened both garage doors and let it run till the thermostat opened. Started like it ran yesterday. I miss that thing. Three-or-so more months!
