Entered my CJ in a local Jeep show and won Best CJ.
Far Out , D ! Love our 700R4's Too !
Started the tear down of the CJ6...diamond plate is off, top is off and roll cage is unbolted and ready to remove.
Got the new 231 Installed, fired off and timing set. Ordered new Fenderwell headers.
The CJ to YJ conversion is done also. Have to get the new parts and finish up all the detail work and it will be drive time.
More Bleeding ..............
Finally got around to fixing the radiator I bashed up, this was from following jpet and bam bam for 10 min at the fall reunion.

Basically I hammered more clearance into the self clearancing steering bellcrank mount. then turned down the lower hose, by beating the area around the flange with a rubber mallet and plastic drift. Then I cleaned, sanded, cleaned, then fluxed the holes and any sharp corners. Then sweated like a big thin pipe. Lee, some of the lurkers here and I pulled the radiator and soldered the fins / tubes that were leaking at the reunion but didn't see this leak near the bellcrank.
Nice work, Jw60.

Been there brother. Take a deep breath.
Shake and shoot day.
I ordered two new upper windows for my soft top from the Bestop company. The passenger side fit perfectly but the drivers side would not align with the lower door. One of the guide pins was welded about 1/4 inch off and not square to the frame. Contacted customer service and they promised to send a replacement right out.
Today I cruised to a friend's shed. Installed my old Overdrive and checked for loose or missing bolts. Then topped off everything. It was a lot easier than at home.

About a week ago, I moved my '53 cj3b to a different spot on the driveway. I noticed a puddle of oil under the rear differential. I've owned the jeep for about 100 weeks. If that much oil leaked out in one week, how much has leaked out after a hundred weeks?
I removed the cover and let the diff fluid drain out.
I cleaned the two surfaces and used black RTV to seal the cover. I refilled the diff with fluid. I placed a piece of clean cardboard under the differential. After 24 hours, there are no drips from the cover seal, but there are a few drips from the pinon. I guess I can't win'em all.
So....... My ' Rosie" loves here new Skids ! She stops, straight & true !
Much more to follow . in a couple days. Man , do I have alot to share ........
Bitched at the machine shop to get with it.
Block is hot tanked. Heads apart and tanked. 30years ago when I had the heads shopped to have the guides milled and a valve job done, well they didn't do the angle job I paid for. Lapped them a little and called it good. Just as well this thing beat up the crank, seems everything is suspect....
