Took all of the the old faded peeling woodgrain off. Didn't take as long as I thought. Just the right amount to heat gun and four plastic scrapers.

threw the 14 bolt under it, bled the brakes, charged the battery (it was dead ) and drove it around a little.

Unhooked the J20 from the car hauler and drove it across town to the grocery store. Spent a half hour trying to convince someone it is a JEEP. Scared a few people and got the attention of our local copper. My truck now chirps second gear... ooopssss "Did I do that"

Actually I think the tranny is going out but it sounds wicked right now. The hood gets put back on the Honcho and rolled back out to the yard.

Replaced a broken rear drive shaft and got 'er moving after 2 weeks of sitting idle! Drove it in on my 64 mile round trip commute today. I guess I was feeling like being generous to the oil companies.

Put my Demon 2bbl back on and passed NJ emissions (good for 2 years)FINALLY with the help of a new catalytic converter. Also re-engineered a ch*vy Astro class III receiver to fit under my Honcho to pull a trailer to the Pa. Jeeps show this weekend. Next is rear disc brakes on the 14 bolt. Found all the parts, need to find time.

I just accumulated parts. I picked up an A/C compressor that is 134 compatable, picked up a TJ gas tank, skid and fuel pump for the 4.0ltr conversion, and a repalcement front fascia all for the J10.
Breakfast amounts to one live toad, I choke that mofo down, and I am rest assured that nothing worse will happen to me for the rest of the day.

I finally re-installed my fuel tank. Few of the holes lined up after I repaired the frame, so that made for an interesting afternoon with some colorful language. But that puppy's back in. Now I' just have to double check some wiring and torque some nuts, fix the gangsta lean on the driver's seat and try to start her up after two years of sitting.

My weekend!

After dis-assembling 2 Quadra-tracs and cleaning both to find good parts. I made 1 good unit.
Got all of the shafts aligned, chain tight and bolts torqued to spec then stabbed the little muther.
Filled up with fluid, connected drive shafts ( propeller shafts in AMC book) linkages and cables then tried to move it out of its tracks. Not enough transmission fluid, so 4 qts later ITS ALIVE!!!
So I started doing figger 8's in the local mall parking lot to get the cones lubed up.
Security didn't like that so I made do at a couple of dead end streets.
Tried the lowrange, linkage not right. Minor adjustment and all is good.
Tried E-drive, no workee . Have vacuume but no light or engagement.
Looks like next weekend I'll pull the back half of the case off and try to fix e-drive.
But in the mean time it runs and pulls like a monster. new chain, cones with gears and fluid make a BIG difference.
Now I just need to go muddin'
79 LTD Mudbug
TFI ignition upgrade
K&N air, electric fan , FLOWMASTER 50
3" Rough Country lift & 31x10.50's, 3:54 gears
I Rebuilt the QuadraTrac! (now I know how it works)
NO EMISSIONS JUNK !!18 mpg best to date.
Huntin' rig supreme!
