    Wow, you really made out well. That Jeep had lots of love at one time. Just work out the bugs one at a time and it should be a great Jeep.

    Couple things I am noticing. No air suspension, looks like you have Rancho RS9000 adjustable shocks with the incab control (Black control box under the switches to the left of the steering column). Also the brake light sensor in the rear looks to be mounted with a line lock and is likely the EB (emergency brake) light/switch on the dash. Light comes on when the switch is on and there is pressure built up in the rear brake system. where do the blue air lines go? Might be air lockers, or might be low pressure air lines to keep water out of the diff the Jeep was used for a lot of water crossings.

    Blue lines could be ARB.

    Steering is sorted out. It needed three tie rod ends and the Saginaw box needed adjustment. It has air lockers but the air system doesn't stay pressurized. I'm going to hunt down the leak with a spray bottle. Did a final tune up last night now that I fixed the valve train. Runs great at 5 btdc, 29 deg dwell and 550 rpm idle in drive. Can't imagine the labor cost if I didn't do my own work. I have at least 32 hours into it.

    You wouldn't believe the wiring harness he built. It's a work of art. Can't imagine the hours. The fab work is not that great though but well thought out.

    I'll investigate this. Thanks.

    I'm having way too much fun getting it back on the road.

    Heads up for anyone looking to run airline from front to rear. I had to replace the lines for the onboard air and decided to use hydraulic line because it can handle more abuse, heat, elements. Tractor supply has ready made lengths for CHEAP. I used 8 ft runs to and from the York compressor and rear tank. Each was under 30 bucks. I used 1/2 fitting hose with a 3/8 id and the tank fills very quick and the York seems to not even break a sweat. Compare to Napa that wants 100 bucks to make one run. They also carry the hyd to pipe fittings.
