Do you drill out the center pin area in the spring pad for the nylock then?

Yes I did. In my application it is a 3/8 bolt and I use a 5/8 bit, works very well. I normally drill 3 holes in the perch so I can move the axle forward or back to get as much WB as possible. If running a nylock in the centered position make sure it does not hit the axle tube and prevent the axle from fully seating on the spring.

Good point, I was wondering about that. I'm still not sure how I am going to fit all that in there. I'm just running a factory D30 front and D44 rear with the 'cast' style spring perch. The front axle is going to stay in a centered spring pin position, but the rear will need to go back another 1/2-1" to 'tune' the tire in the wheel tub.

Thanks for the help

I just happened to get the CV yoke I need for my d300 at the same time Mike got the one for his d300. I started to compare the two and the new one he received from Tom Woods is over 1/2" shorter than the Spicer Yoke.



Guess which one I am putting on Mikes Jeep.

Looking at ordering these headers. Can't set the motor without them.

Or

The ebay set looks a little tighter and smaller. Are you going to try and run dual exhaust inside the frame, crossover, or ???

Sanderson has a set of 4.3 headers that are pretty tight to the block. Not cheap though.

I will be running a Y pipe of some sort.

The ebay set flare out a bit on the passenger side that will put it right into the frame rail. I can cut and turn the flange if I need to. I will probably go with them anyway.

The sanderson set is very nice but I have a friend with them and he is having trouble keeping the spark plug wires from burring up. Besides they are out of my budget anyway....

Probably not enough time to just make your own?

I have thought about to replace my 'modified' manifolds on the 225, but I don't think I can pull it off before EJS.

No pictures for a few days. Body is still in the back of the pickup and the chassis is still on the trailer from the Willys event...

I have a few more more projects to take care of around the house and then I will be back on the jeep. I did order the E-bay headers today.

I wonder how a 87" WB jeep would do at the Line Mountain Races?

A stock WB CJ5 wins 4 cyl regularly......I dont think your old guts could take it. If you are serious you can run a race w/ me and then decide It is a 2hr ride in a washing machine....

That looks like it has promise! What are the general plans? Are you restricted much by the comp rules for tub mods?

That center tunnel looks like it will be pretty nice to work with.

My plan for this week is to get the body mounted while I wait for my headers to show up.

I will also start making the parts I need for the tube and bushing motor mounts and t-case mount.

No seats yet...

I did get two of my rear body mounts done. I am going to hold off on making the inner two mounts on the rear bumper until I decide what to do about a fuel tank...

If you could, take some measurements of all the body mount locations and there position on the frame. I think it would be REALLY nice to start a 'sticky' at the top of the thread with much more dimensional data for frames and bodies since more and more people are probably going to be building these 'old' jeeps from scratch......

I can make up a 'blueprint' of all the different bodies and frame mount locations.
