Drove mine for the first time to see what happens. Learned I might need some rear bars to keep the rear end from moving around under power. Wants to go left under medium acceleration. Guess a big block will do that. Also need a 4" drop pitman arm to get rid of some bump steer. And get the front track bar back in. More work.

Which one??

1974 Cherokee:


Installed stereo and speakers, Installed new seats from a 79' Dodge van


Package just arrived today with new door lock cylinders & keys, those go in tomorrow! Only had it like 4 years now or so with no door keys!



1986 Grand Wagoneer:


Finished putting on the brackets & alternator on along with the power steering pump, fan & belts, motor mounts & carburetor.


Now I just have to:


Get it off the engine stand and onto the cherry picker,
Bolt the flex plate on,

Wrestle it into the Wagoneer, and bolt up the motor mounts,
Get the bell housing bolts in,

Bolt up the torque converter,
Bolt on the exhaust,

Install the power steering hoses, fuel lines, accelerator cables, kick down linkage, Install plug wires, get timing in the ball park,
Install radiator, radiator hoses & heater hoses, fill with coolant,

Install starter (I don't have yet & can't afford till next month)


Not much at all , I should be done in an hour or two....oops, I meant a day or three at the rate I get stuff done.


Then hopefully it will run great assuming it starts at all!

Finally found my heater blower problem!

It was the Heater Mode Relay. Located behind 4wd switch.

$10 for a new one.

It wasn't the blower motor resistor.

How do I know?

I unplugged the wires at the resistor, left the one going to the motor connected.
Ran 12v from battery to each position and got all 4 speeds.

Locating the relay was a pain, but switching between off and AC made the relay click - just blindly felt around till I felt something clicking.

Took the Grand down to the gas station for it's first official MPG check. 10.38 mpg, about what I expected. Mixed driving, half in town and the other 2 lane no traffic lights. No complaints.

Replaced speedo cable. The cruise control sensor broke so I just put in a one piece cable.

Brakes

Replaced rear brakes due to a leaking brake cylinder. Went to do the passenger side and noticed the parking brake strut spring was broken. Figures, the only spring that’s not included in the rebuild kit.

Found out it takes 3 good men to remove bed from J10

Had two friends at the house yesterday drinking "my" beer, so .......... I did the only right thing and put them to work. Asked them to help me lift off the bed and carry it about 20 yards to the lean-to. Removed the tailgate first!

Last week/weekend I fixed my rear window wash sprayer. It previously tried to work, but took like 10 seconds for fluid to get to the nozzle. Then it just barely spurted out to reach the wiper path.
After some poking and prodding with a multimeter, I found that the electrical connector just had a bad connection! Fixed the connection and now it only takes 2-3 seconds for fluid to reach the back and it comes out nice and strong! Right in the middle of the rear glass!

Yesterday in the evening I worked on my driver seat. Had a piece of leather that could flop around, no more floppin' now. Also added a long strip of Velcro to the top of the carpeted panel (and adjacent metal panel it matches to) that pulls out to open the jack storage space. Got tired of it banging around back there. The metal clips don't really mesh with the metal anymore under the window, due to the removable panel being warped.

1970 J3000 pickup

Hauled the new purchase home from Iowa. Cleaned out the cab and put the "extras" found in the cab in the shop. Made an initial mental list of where to go from here. Took pictures and joined this forum. Yippee.

Not so much what I did to my Jeep, but what I ordered to do to it...

Noticed the headlights flashing on and off as the switch warmed up driving around the city so decided to get a headlight relay.

Ordered the following from Daniel Stern Lighting- Headlight Relay, side flasher module, and marker lights. (Will save up for the Cibie 7" rounds and bulbs to match, a future upgrade).

Also ordered some bulbs he recommended to upgrade the lights-GE Nighthawks, Phillips LED tail/brake lights and back-up lamps, plus some better bulbs for the front parking lights.

Once they all arrive, I will be able to upgrade "The Pig" a little bit.

Replaced exhaust gaskets on passenger side manifold and changed Tranny filter and fluid. Also replaced water pump with a flowkooler and thermostat with a Robert Shaw stat. Plus installed a heavy duty clutch fan to help with idle a/c overheating problem.

Saturday I drove 140 miles round trip in my 77 Wedding Wagon to pick up a complete AMC 401!
Put it in the back on a pallet also had a front bench seat, windshield with all trim, driver side fender, and misc.

Bonus! Longest trip since I got it running and I got 14.5 MPG!
