    Cut the giant homemade bumper off the front of the jeep and started mounting a original Koenig winch bumper. The homemade bumper had to weigh 120lbs.

    This is before

    This is after it doesn't look that bad

    Victory is mine! Sort of. Engine fired right up, cam run in. Right at the end the alternator went up in smoke. The clutch doesn't throw out enough. Still it's progress

    Nothing like a good running Buick V6, even or odd.

    Runs really smooth. Frankly I've never found the odd fires to run rough at all. In general I keep a fair amount of advance dialed in and never had ill effects, just the opposite.

    My CJ has been in the body shop for two months having body and rust repair addressed. They finished today and as soon as the streets dry off some I’ll trailer it home for reassembly.

    Dphillip,
    Look's great, Brother ! (y) My 2 cents is to have your ' Jeep ' logo raised letters done in the black that match's your bumpers & frame. Both Tailgate & Tub. That will really make the work ' POP ' :cool:

    I had a spare evening last night so I wanted to address the rear main seal leak on Farm Jeep Willy. My littlest guy Zeke and I dropped the pan, and pulled the rear main cap. The seal came out pretty easily. The two side seals were in the block to cap slots, with no expansion pins. They were loose in there. Leak discovered! At that point I got to pulling a few rod caps to check. All were worn evenly, no grooves in crank. I wasn't too impressed with the bearing material looks though. It looked like it had veins in it, even though smooth to the touch. They were the original bearings, standard size for rods, and. 001 under on mains. GM numbers on both. Reading the Buick sites, apparently it was common to have .001 under at the factory on the mains? Oh well, I plastiguaged a few. All were ok, just on the "loose" end of spec. I suspect the new bearings will tighten it up a bit. I had to fight myself away from a complete teardown, as it has no bad noises and good even compression. Would be wasting money and time. Zeke helped wash parts and had a ball

    Hi,
    Wonderi'n what year is your Buick 225 ? How many miles on it, do you guess? IMHO, If it all look's that well...... put it back together & Repair your common oil leak. It sounds to me that your good to go there . ' If it ain't Broke..... Fight the urge to Fix it ' :)

    I really don't know the year, I bought it from a friend for a hundred bucks, put a cam, lifters and timing chain in it, as I was advised most were worn, and I have put a ton of miles on it. It was spotlessly clean inside. I ordered King bearings and a new rear main seal and pan gasket, stick it back together and keep driving it as is.

    I trailed the CJ home from the body shop yesterday and spent all day today putting things back together. New Bestop seats went in first.

    Well lets see I got the 1 ton chain hoist all setup to lift the front of my tub on to the chassis (the tub is on a heavy rotisserie that has to be disassembled out from under it to clear the Chassis rolling under the Tub) then I went around the back and hooked up a couple straps to the tailgate chain loops and put my cherry picker under the middle of the strap and while I slowly and carefully pumped the handle to test the setup/ I ended up pulling the dam tailgate loops towards each other. I had the strap between the loops to flat as I was worried the cherry picker wouldn't be able to raise up high enough.The resulting physical repair screwed up all the paint around them and now I have to reweld about a 1/2" long seam which will ruin more paint and be a huge PITA. SO I am now taking a break. And will get up tomorrow and mask off the area that needs welding do the welding clean it up remask it off for paint then sand so it can be repainted. I am going to paint the area around the Tailgate chain loops with Satin Black VHT Chassis and Rollbar Epoxy. Its not worth the unbelievable hassle to repaint the Pacific Blue. I guess I can tell if anyone asks I did that on purpose ( the satin Black) so I could easily touch it up being its such a high wear area!

    SOME TIMES I just want to SCREAM
