Winter Tear Down:

Replace plugs & wires - I have a random miss which I attribute to a fried spark plug wire. Header removal required.






This is the first time I've pulled the front panels off since it was built. All looks well.

On the list:

New header & collector gaskets.
Rebuild Bypasses - one is super fawked up, barely strokes.
Re-tube front driveshaft.
Build engine skid.

If I get to one of these, it's a win.

F yeah.
I took this to Moab in late April. Installed a surge tank & rebuilt the bypasses.

Ran Pritchett, Area BFE, then topped it off with Moab Rim. It rained almost every day, so some horsepower was required on the ledges. Such a blast.

The surge tank greatly improved my overheating issues. It self-bleeds the air out now, that was definitely an issue.

I'll update with some pics here in a little while.

BTW - replacing the plug wires and adding some reflective wrap cured my misfire.

Back to basics.
In the interest of improving my cooling system performance I did the following:

Moved my oil accumulator from behind the radiator to under the cowl area. Freed up some space for air to flow. In the process I up-sized the cooler lines from -8 to -10. This also cleaned up my mess of oil plumbing. I added a manual ball valve in the cab for pre-lube action.

Installed a 160 deg thermostat

Added a surge tank such that the system constantly self-bleeds air. The vent off the heads (steam port) and the top of the radiator are tied to the new high-point. I cheated a little and just put a high pressure cap on the radiator, and relocated my original cap to the new surge tank.

The results were great. I ran the piss out of it on a set of dunes at the exit of Pritchett. Motor was solid at 210 deg the entire time. I no longer have to keep an eye on the gauges when playing in the power band.

New surge tank installed.


Oil cooler / accumulator tie-in thru the inner fender.

The surge tank ties into the suction side of the heater core ports with a -10 line. These were previously plugged.

Sorta hard to see, but you get the main idea.



My original spark plug wires were totally fried causing my misfire issue. I changed plugs / wires and added these reflective heat shields to the boots I was already using. So far so good.


Rebuilt the bypasses too. There was a seal which was hanging up the shaft big time. Changed out the oil, etc.

Ran Moab a friend who just finished his build. CJ-7, 4.3L, TH400, D300, 60/14, 40" Creepys. Rig worked well except for a leaky tcase seal. Not bad for a serious shakedown.



These condos in Moab have tow rig parking in the driveway. Nice to see an area which caters to our hobby.

We did quite a bit of highway driving so I scabbed my windshield on. Sprayed it with Rain-X and called it good. It did rain a ton so I was glad to have it. Also snowed on Vail Pass.

Ran Pritchett the first day. It rained. A lot.
Except for some hikers we had the place to ourselves.

Also ran Area BFE and Moab Rim. Good stuff - looking forward to going back next year.











Looking forward to a couple more local trips this year.

Been a few years.

I'm working to upgrade my semi-hack front brakes:



You can see these rotors are not fully engaged in the caliper. This was a Blackbird Customs 5-lug 60 hub + brake kit.

Solution: Poor man's big brake kit.



Going to bore out the center hole of these Dodge SRT-10 rear rotors.


While I'm at it I'll also replace my 18-year old rear rotors....

More details to come.

Cool! What calipers? I too have some blackbird customs brake caliper brackets, but using 3/4ton 8 lug chevy rotors. Seems to stop just fine.

Cool to see this thread still being updated after all these years, and this rig still being used and abused. Reading this thread is what got me hooked on Pirate4x4 and LCG Jeep builds. I followed it regularly for a few years before I even joined this site. Good stuff!
