    Still haven't touched my jeep in weeks sadly :(

    Took on coaching my son's baseball team and it's eaten up most of my time

    That's a good reason not to touch jeep for a while, get to spend time with your son.

    Yeah it's been a blast so far man. But I really want to get back to work on it! I wanted to use it this summer before the baby comes. I'll get to work on it soon. I also injured my knee at work and it's still been healing up so I can only stand on it for so long.

    I trade a lot of 'work on jeep time' for 'play with daughter' time. I say the same for 'spend time with family.'

    Been trying to keep at it 5 hours a week or so just to make some progress. Some weeks, more, some less.

    Transmission / transfer case / OD taking way to long, but are being done at the speed of 'family.'

    Finally worked on the jeep a little yesterday. Got the carb off and intake manifold off. Only to find small deposits of oily water under the valley pan. So my prediction could be true. Could just be a head gasket issue but my motor could also be close to toast if water has been getting into the piston chambers. Guess I'll find out more when I get the heads off

    Hi Kyle,............Could be condensation , could be a cold water leak, you can pressurize the cooling system and see if it holds pressure and you can leak down the cylinders and see if you have any leaks there........or take them off!
