That color is sexy!!!
Thanks for all the "Likes" and positive comments
Need to get carb adjusted which will mean some work.
That is really nice! Curious what you did with they hydraulic
clutch and brakes.
Do not understand question
Steve, do you have drawings/plans for the tire carrier? Looks nice and exactly like what I want installed on mine! Thanks!
No plans. Just built it on the back of the Jeep.
Awesome! Can you take a few close-ups, if you don't mind me copying it? Thanks!
Put a 12si, 3 wire alternator in. Running a little better. Still trying to figure out timing.
The hydraulic clutch is preforming well.
Still fooling with timing, pulled the carburetor and reset float height. Tighten some screws that were not as tight as they should have been. I think I have sealing up several vacuum leaks. Timing set at 12 degrees running better. Will set timing at 5 degrees tomorrow and see how it drives.
Set timing at 6-7 degrees, drove pretty good what little I drove it. Going to work on getting licensed. Then HEI distributor goes in
Got the Vin. plate cleaned up and installed. Hope to take and have it inspected and have license plate by the end of the week.
I feel the carburetor still is not right, going to get some different size jets and change them out and see what that does.
Made the first road trip today, 18 miles. Drove the Jeep to the Sheriff inspection station and got inspection. Was a little worried about the drive since this was the first trip. Been doing some short drives on the neighbor street, the Jeep was a little squirrelly under acceleration. Adjusted the toe in and that really helped. Was a good trip, had to deal with starting on a hill at a stop light, e brake worked good. Hope to get a license plate tomorrow.
Started on this build January 2, 2013. Got a tag for it and can now drive it on the road. Never thought I would be driving the Jeep on the road
What I did:
Dana 30 front axle
Tie rod flip
12 s alternator
Flaming River steering column with tilt
Roxor hanging pedals
Roxor power brake booster and master cylinder
Roxor hydraulic clutch master cylinder
Disc brakes front and rear
E brake on rear disc brakes
Best top seats
Swing out spare tire carrier
Parts in garage to install:
Rear gas tank
Buick NOS, HEI Distributor
Speed Hut cluster
Your punch list looks the same as mine! How do you like the roxor pedal setup so far? I came to the conclusion yesterday that my plan to get it "good enough" with the ross steering and in-floor pedals just isn't going to cut it. I have a set from an xj, but I don't know how hard it will be to adapt it.
Your jeep looks incredible by the way, great job on it!
I am happy with the Roxor set up. The hydraulic clutch is good and it takes little effort to work the clutch. The release is smooth. Power brakes are great. After I put some more miles on the Jeep I will probably bleed the brakes again. The Roxor parts were as a easy install, could install the pedals in a day. I did a thread in the Roxor section on the install.
Congrats! It turned out great.
In the building time, I got divorced and remarried. Moved 2 times, changed jobs twice. Worked out of town for 2 years and did very little to the Jeep.
Unreal, it’s hard enough when the stars are aligned as you very well know, Jeep looks awesome!
