Well for those that where at the zu know how good that tracker did on 3 axles

Updates from last week....

Got a call from a friend that someone needed a diff swap in a samurai that was in town on Tuesday.  Turns out to be an 80 year old Vietnam vet who used to fly helicopters.

Talked to the guy and he wanted a diff and 1.6 swap and it all done by Thursday.      :o


Called up Low Range. The got me parts air mailed same day and showed up the next day. So I'm really impressed with the service.   [thumbsup]


Got  low mileage 1.6 in there with an aftermarket 4x4 mounting bracket. And stock mounts with a 1.3 oil pan mod.  Surprising that with the stock motor mounts and weber it still fit under the stock hood with a factory snorkel.


New everything that he wanted.  Shocks, fuel pump, clutch, coil pack, all new gaskets, new hoses and clamps, starter, and new wiring.
Finished it up today.   Glad to open up the shop.
Phone broke and lost a lot of photos, now to fix the dodge axle bearings. Redo the valves in the Sami and patch about 20 tires....   :P


I'm going to bed

Hey I have that same DVOM. From Snap-On right? How do you like it? I was told to get a Fluke auto ranging instead.

Been a while since I've seen this thread.  
It works fine for me.  
I had a very nice fluke from when I did trouble shooting on HVAC systems.   But even with my name branded on the meter it was stolen.
I went 15 months without a meter. And karma shined on me and I got this one for free.   
It works fine, but I missed my fluke...

Thats pretty normal for a Fluke pricewise, I guess what I am saying is at least you got a nice one to replace it.

Bunch of boys around here in Central Carolina got their trucks sitting like that. :-X
Call it the Carolina Squat! Looks like they're squatting to take a dump. ::)
Looks crappy to me. Won't last long. But that's what I said about droopy pants too! ???

I prefer a level truck when towing.

Made a set of axle stands with some scrap metal.  I'm eventually going to make it so I can have jigs to weld up mounts for Jeeps and other vehicles.


More progress on the yj and the Bastard child is almost done.

It will be a while until this tracker is done.  

We finally finished up one of the big projects in the shop.  The bastard Jeep is finished. 

350/465/203/205/HP, KP Ford 60/ 14bolt. 42 pitbulls.

Put some new 35 spline chromos in it and finished up all the drivetrain parts.  Over the weekend

Started on the tracker project.  Inner fender and the frame aren't in good shape at all.

More projects get rolled in and others get rolled out. 

Decieded to part out tracker to fund beater sami project.

Picked up a nice little forester cheap. Hopefully it gets better mileage than the dodge. 

Finished an audio and interior overhaul in the mustang. 

New wheels on the 68. That might get thrown into the fire soon. 

2 yj roll cages on order along with some tube bumpers in the works.

Black yj should be finished by this weekend.  I hope..... WG

Spent all weekend.  But finally found some shelves that I've been looking for.  Industrial parts shelves that interlock.   Each one can hold 300 lbs.  

Took everything i had to put 2/3rds up this weekend. All bolted together and whatnot.  Still need to get some more containers and a labeler to really get organized.
