Also test fitted the oil pump to distributor and it fits great with no binding.

Just trying to get some parts cleaned up and painted. I have the old radiator and it seems to be in okay shape so I wanted to clean it up. Not sure if they all came with A 4 core, but that is what it has. I sealed up the inlet and outlet after running the hose through it. Poured a half gallon of CLR in it and topped it off with water. Let it sit for forty minutes and flushed it out. Lots of rust and crude came out and it looks pretty good inside now.

Wow, never thought of using CLR... Thanks for the idea, as usual, Super Job on the build. Following intently as I will be rebuilding a 401 myself in the near future.

Looks like late September shipment of engine bits and pieces, so back on to body work. Already have the drivers side quarter patch panel, so I will start with that. This is an old pic of the rust and bondo.

Most of the rust is at the wheel well, I'am going to cut out more than where I'am at now, but I like to take baby steps to the final size I will be taking out.

The part of the inner fender well right where it meets the the back of the wheel well is very rusted so it to will have to go. I always make a pattern be for I cut it out.

I will cut somewhere above that body line for the final patch. Also will soda blast the whole area before treating for rust and getting some good paint on the inside of the quarter.

This piece rusted from the inside. When I got the Wagoneer home the jack was in A cloth bag tucked down in this area with leaves and mud. Won't do that again.

It will take me two or three tries to get this piece made.

Talked with Zack at Z&M Jeeps A few months ago about going with after market gauges. So I decided on Auto-Meter Cobalt gauges. My knowledge of electrical systems is limited and all of this scares me. It came with a simple set of step by step instructions that lay out wire by wire connections to the factory wiring harness. Once I was ready to order, we went through and got on the same page with the gauges I wanted. He Told me It would take two weeks, and it came in just like he said. Very happy with what I received.
