As we all know a jeep is never finished. Haven't had much free time to tinker with the jeep but over the last few weeks I've been able to squeeze in and hour or two after work. The weekend before last years rubicon run i tried putting in the champion 3 core radiator and partsdude fan shroud but because of how high i mounted the steering gear box the steering shaft interfered with the lower corner of the radiator. I would need to notch the radiator tank for clearance but i didn't have a way to weld aluminum so it got put on hold. On Black Friday i found a deal on a ac/dc tig welder that i couldn't pass up. I notched the radiator and added a bung for a drain plug. The welds aren't pretty but they dont leak so far. The DUI distributor and livewires i ordered back in june took quite a bit longer than expected, almost 13 weeks. Due to the extended length of the distributor shaft i didn't have to do and grinding for clearance and there is plenty of room to rotate for timing. Also added a new holddown and ARP holddown stud along with summit wire separators. Almost forgot to add that the vacuum advance can was charged so the vacuum line wouldn't hit the fan. My starter was sounding a bit sluggish and i decided to replace it with the compact powermaster unit Norcal69 posted about awhile back and it works much better that the stock starter. Hopefully since its smaller and not as close to the headers the longevity is better. In Buildflycrash's thread about his power steering vs power brakes thread someone posted that Brennans Garage made a bracket to put a newer TC style pump on a dauntless. Since i was going to replace my pump anyway i decided to give the tc pump a try. I used all the recommended parts on brennan page and everything went together perfectly and i was ableto reuse the hoses. Haven't had a chance to drive it with the new pump but i like how compact of a package it is compared to the old style Saginaw pump.
