    She’s back, baby!!
    Made a 30 mile round trip to Mod Pizza and it felt like I just drove her yesterday. So good to have her back on the road.

    Didn’t get much Jeep work done this week but had a couple hours today.
    Set timing on 231 @15*. Installed PS pump and bled. Got most of the floor boards bolted in.

    Rear armor corners riveted on.

    I’m liking that I painted them body color.

    Done with that job.

    As long as I don’t tear it up by then!!! :whistle:

    Wait until you see the front fenders! I’m excited to get those on later today. Put a coat of rustoleum hammered on the floorboards this morning. Going for a long bike now, then back to work on the Jeep this afternoon.

    I finally got the last of the parts I needed off the Land Rover Donor car. I hauled it off today to the recyclers.
    . On the way back I checked my PO Box, and the Heim Joints for the Land Rover LT230 T/C Mated to the Ford NP435 showed up.
    This is the last thing I had to do on the Trans T/C conversion.
    So next week the Mustang 4 speed top loader comes out and this beast gets installed. Anyone out there need a Ford close ratio 4 speed mated to a Dana 18 with a hydraulic parking brake.

    I'm a "set it and forget it" sort of guy.

    When it makes funny noises I'll break out the gauges.

    Yeah , I used to be. Now, I've learned 'Cuz I sometimes can't keep my heavy right foot out of things, that I'm better off this way. I don't want to do HG's as a regular maintenance job. These things guard a bit against that. :whistle:

    There's no Miles or Hours on that Engine, from the looks of it? Curious of the Year & if you think that has the OEM decal on It ?

    Are you going to put it in the toy hauler as a backup?

    Oh I’m sure I’ll find a spot for it!!
    Its a rebuild from a “restoration” guy. I think it’s a later version-like 70-71. It’s set with flex plate for auto - Commando type.

    I could’ve been productive on a number of things today, but decided to go toodling around instead. Found a nice spot and a big tree to park next to.
