    Cool idea. Would you be able to post a YouTube video?

    Not capable of posting a video for post #1680 regarding a turn signal buzzer, but think forklift/equipment backup alarm for sound. Still plenty loud with a volume-suppressing wrap on it. May need more suppression. I just got back from a run to a very busy July 3rd town and the "beep, beep" could draw attention. :rolleyes:

    I have a couple of resistors from a junk headphone that I'll try to reduce the buzzer volume with or, better yet, I might use one of the headphone slider volume controls. Thanks for the thought!

    jeep-armrest - 1.jpg

    Got tired of burning my arm on the armrest lock cylinder...didn't like any of the aftermarket armrest covers...so just got some fabric at Walmart. Didn't want just black because it would heat up, couldn't match the Sahara green, all the tan looked like it would just get dirty.

    Not sure how much I like this yet, but easy enough to re-do down the road.

    Guy at work bought himself a “1970” but it’s pretty cut up. Drove in today just to park them next to each other.

    Here's the old rigid line , that was hitting the motor mount when pivoting to tighten my P.S. belt. It was routed under the P.S. reservoir.

    The seller had been sitting on it for a while. I think he got it for an okay price for the parts that are in it. It’s definitely a “one piece at a time” special.

    China scrap vs. 35yr old US replacement. No brainier, no leaks now. Bypass hose would never seal up.

    I layer duct tape on the buzzer in the mack. some genius at the factory tied the power divider into the beeeeeep thing so when you need to pay attention cause its crappy and you need all eight pushing all you can hear is beeeeeeeeep five or six layers o duct tape and at least you don't get too jacked up.

    Do you need the short hat rotors? Looks like you have Chevy brackets with Ford rotors.

    They're F150 rotors. The caliper brackets are stock Wagoneer. They'd have to be a really short rotor, I'm about 1 1/4" too deep.

    Hey Rich.... Good feeling, when they run , eh ?
    Get the timing adjusted . I think that was the main reason she wouldn't stay at the first start up ? sounded like she was flooding ? Post another you tube when you get the high idle adjusted down. We could hear the valve tappets better, which may need adjusting too. (y)
