So I planned on spending a rainy Sunday just relaxing ........ after 4 1/2 minutes of that I went in the shop and plugged that hole that's been bothering me
Turned off the lights and used this LED light under the weld to see if I missed anything
Some grinding and a little paint
Got a bit enthusiastic today
Weld grind weld grind be easier if I can weld good
More tomorrow. Wish I can afford a new tub
I've never been able to name my cars (nothing ever feels right... I over think it), but I think you should call this one "Patches" or "Patch"...or...Something to that effect.
how about nervous break down
If my wife was more understanding I would be driving it now with a new tub on it
Sorry. I was a little late to the party.
What this tells me is every Jeep was buiilt different lol
FWIW mine is pretty much identical to Vin's.
And these are both factory setups for v6 ?
A bunch of little tack welds till it's all welded causes less trouble. But otherwise looking good
Mine is a 67' factory V6
Interesting. The factory service manual has the return line in the sending unit
The photo of the bottom of the tank, is that rubber to nylon fuel line ?
Mine is also a factory 67 V6
I spent some time looking thru some old pics and this is the only one I can find showing the tank, yes that handsome driver is me circa early 80s, zooming in it appears I have the same setup, you can see the sender and what appears to be the return line fitting, although the sending unit looks closer to the filler tube than yours
Metal-to Rubber-to Nylon. The rubber merely couples the metal with the nylon fuel lines.
I hate to go off topic, but did you notice if your rear differential had a vent? I know the older models had a pinhole vent in the axle tube, but I can't see to locate one on mine.
Don't see one on mine
