As soon as the 100 mph wind dies down I will get the cover off and snap a whole Wagon pic.

Had a half day of vacation. I came home and had the rear tires mounted.





Mounted them up, just need to put the center cap back on them.

Removed the old broken starter and went back to town and grabbed a starter and solenoid.



The gear was really chewed up but the flywheel was ok.





Installed the starter and solenoid no problems encountered.

I had ordered supplies a while back to replace terminals and cables.



Also purchased this hydraulic crimper.



Strip Wire



Insert in proper lug for application and place in crimper. pump the handle to crimp.



Finished crimp



Finish off with heat shrink with heat activated glue.



I made all the positive and negative cables this way.

New Terminals. I really like these. plenty of room to add positive and negative accessories.



Wiring up solenoid.



Finished product.



Today's Carnage.



Now it starts on the first turn of the key.

Nice. Only critique is that you should have run the shrink tube over the end of the crimp. Looks like you just butted against the end of it. You want to actually seal the joint. I see that you did it with the positive cables. Is that just an optical illusion with the negative cable?

It is over the crimp and part way up the lug. It is just hard to tell because the heat shrink tubing is clear. They were out of black when I ordered. I should of gotten a better picture of it.

No wonder you had such a hard time with starting. You're starter was a 4x4 Anyway I'd love to see your parts list for the cables. If you have a chance please post it or PM me. Keep up the good work!

Spent a little to much time indoors procrastinating this date. Decided to tackle fixing the broken vent tube issue and do a rear diff service on the AMC 20.

Supplies for today's work.



Vermont American 1/8 x 27 Tap w/ handle and Moller 1/8" NPT X 5/16"hose barb fitting. O'Reillys auto pars has this fitting as well as amazon.



Hose barb that would not stay connected and is being replaced.



Breather hole on drivers side of rear axle to be tapped. notice no threads, appears to me a press fit with old fitting.



A little grease on the Tap to catch the fine fillings.



Tapping the hole.



Sorry for the bad picture, but you can just make out the new threads in the breather hole.



New fitting screwed in place. Worked like a charm!!!!!



First Project Done!!!!!!!

Amc 20 Diff Service.

Filler hole on drivers side front of pumpkin.



Dirty Diff cover with grease filled bolts, be careful and clean them out or you will strip the torx head of the bolts.



Screws out and draining.



Everything appears to be ok inside the pumpkin.



New cork gasket and Lion Gasket sealant w/ freshly painted cover. It is all sealed back up.



Today's carnage.



Break Cleaner, Cork gasket, Gloves and Shop Towels.
