Radiator packed it in. End tank has a 2" long split on it towards the top. Its holding, but barely. Going to try melting some plastic pellets with acitone and put a temporary fix on it untill I've got time to throw a new rad in.

Put a fuel filter into the bro's Yj, and rutland styled his rad back together so he could go out camping.

managed to find plug wires and a dist cap/rotor at canadian tire that actually fits, replaced accelerator pump on the carb, kinda fixed the messed up A/F mix, adjusted dist breaker point gap, played with the timing, blah blah now it doesn't suck ass as much.

put the new tranny in early this week, its got some different things with this one so hopefully she'll hold up. took me 1.5 hours install and about an hour to do fluids and check everything. overall it puts it down better than the last one.

Rumor has it you were stuck as hell up above peachland when that tranny blew and it was a hefty tow bill out of there. Correct? lol!


Threw in some HID's tonight, 6000k. Lots more light than OE halogen bulbs, and I've got them aimed all the way down just to be safe, may adjust them up eventually for longer beam length.
