Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

The pan was full of sludge and the pick up screen was almost completely clogged. Didn’t see any indication of metal in the pan. I posted pics in the thread I started in OEM tech.

My son Glenn drove his MJ to Harlan wheeled it broke it fixed it and drove it home. Nothing better than wheeling with your kids.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Man, I hate electrical work. I feel so clueless trying to decipher colors and codes and such. All I want is a working blower and 4 windows that go down. Is that too much to ask?

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

New exhaust from the header back all burned in, mounted and installed, finished up my install of a Flowkooler water pump, finally installed my new fuel pump and got a chance to greasea few things on the underside. That new fuel pump was delayed to long...wish I revived this old rig much sooner, runs like a scolded dog again!

Put the new engine in with the help of a few friends. Didn't know to take out the crank position sensor, so. Owning need to buy one of those and put it in before she starts.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I have to do a crank position sensor on one of my Cherokees now. Dreading it. It'd be ok it if was a lifted XJ instead of stock one on worn out springs. She sits pretty low and that think is hard to get to.

However, I do have a guy that thinks he can get a windshield in Annie, so I'll have him come take a look this week. If it goes in, I'm ready to wheel again.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Worked around the house. Pulled over some more trees with ghost and burnt a lot of stuff that was on the ground. I really need a bobcat or mini excavator for the next one.....

Ran a couple of trails at windrock last night. Always fun to pull your buddy out that has more lift, lockers, and bigger tires.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Windshield guy looked at the wreck last night. He said I'm about a half inch from getting the pax corner straight enough to take glass. Guess I need to get back to work on that. Not sure how I'm going to pull it out. I considered putting a strap around it and a tree, and just backing up and letting the strap pull on the A-pillar.

Otherwise, I'm not sure.

Hoping to be in a house and out of the apartment before October, so I may just wait and work on it when I get it home.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Had a big week.

On Thursday I had an offer accepted on a house. I'd put in 3 other offers on the same house and the seller finally accepted. He was being a bit greedy at first, I think, but when it sat for 60 days with no movement in the Nashville market, I think he realized that he's not going to get what he wanted out of it. All told I got it for $31,000 under original asking. The new house has an oversized 2 car garage, so I'll finally have all my tools and vehicles in one place again.

Also, sold the 2000 XJ Limited that I got back in June. It just wasn't the Jeep that I wanted or needed it to be. Took a little loss on it, but if I hadn't spent the money to license it I'd have been ahead. Good news is it's gone and I can move forward with getting Annie back on the trails.


Oh, and if anyone is not doing anything on September 14, I could sure use a few hands to help me move. Trying to avoid hiring movers. Pizza and beer is on me...
