I replaced the water pump and lower rad hose on the small ZJ today.  196,000 miles and it runs pretty good.  Have a little bit of valve noise on the right bank.  it sat for about 4 months so Im goign to run it a bit, change the oil and try some Lucas and see if that quitens down the valvetrain.

Next on the list get all the suspension bugs workd out of it.   maybe Wend if the weather is nice.  Need to chase down some wiring gremlins in the driver door also.

well yesturday the 23rd I bleed the brakes on my bronco, then today I re-cleaned the garage and somewhat got it orginized so it's not so cramped when I work on it... Now come payday... I might pick up some 6x4x1/4 20 foot tube and start a rear bumper build... wish I could only buy a 7 foot chunk...

I rebuilt the carburetor on the cj.  Then took it out for a small shake down.  So far so good! 

READY FOR BRIDGEPORT rain, shine or SNOW, I don't care.

hosed off some mud left over from the last rain we had, then installed some much better front door speakers. Nothing major, just little bits at a time.


Wish I could win the lottery.... would make this build up so much faster!

not just today, but throughout the last two weeks,  fabricated and installed new rear bumper mount, sandblasted & powder coated rear bumper, reinforced spare tire mount & repainted.  alternator overhauled & reinstalled, added four more lights (2 hi-mount & 2 rock lights), more little stuff still needed.
