Removed my factory fuel tank and skid plate. Which might I add if anyone is interested, it will be up for grabs. Will be posting in the for sale section soonish.

Wiped some graffiti off the rear bumper and removed three bumper stickers left by one of the previous owners. A small victory, but victory nonetheless.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

Changed my Tie-rod end that connects to the pitman arm on my 79. Replaced the oil in my rear Diff, and painted the cover to match the pickup. Tried to get the rear passenger side brake drum on the 63.

Took the column apart and tightened the 4 bolts that were loose.

Also replaced the power steering pump. Found out that the PS bracket was missing 2 of the 3 bolts. I was on the verge of complete failure.

WOW

I took the seat out and to the uphostery shop. Broken springs to be fixed and smelly padding to be thrown away.

Started rewire for the rear end with parts from Napa.

Today I installed the Oil Pick-up tube and Canton Oil Pan Studs. They are shiny!

I also installed the fresh new cylinder heads. I used Fel-Pro gaskets. Not sure if they required the copper spray, but I did it anyway.

Now I have a LONG Block!

Worked up the nerve to figure the fuel mileage in the wagoneer. I had been putting it off thinking that actually seeing how bad it was, would cause me to drive it less.

Turns out, it's not as bad as I though it was going to be. I tried not to be too easy on it (wanted real world average). I think I got a pretty good mix of highway, in town, and even working around the farm, and to my surprise, I'm getting 13mpg.

It's not as bad as I feared, and I think with a little more tuning (I suspect that the choke is sticking), I might be able to squeeze a little more out of it.

Dragged out the camper to give it an airing out and cleaning, its been in the family since it was bought new in 84. The plan is to repaint the camper to match the Jeep one day.

Did a side-view mirror swap and changed the mirror lens. Polished all the chrome on the mirror with a dremel. Got the new fuel filler neck installed. Changed and rewired the horn relay.

Finished rear disk conversion and front bigger caliper conversion. All 4 tires on the ground again. Got new steel fuel line bent and brackets made to support them. Partially ran harness for TBI conversion.- List is getting shorter.

Sprayed all Engine Vacuumhoses with Silicone and the Electrical wires with WD40 (at the connections).

At Sunday i started the engine, and i could not belive > she is running a little bit smoother, more directly, stronger!
What does this say to me? I have to change all Vacuum lines, and maybe all Vacuum switches/Valves.

Slid down a loose pebbly slope on the beach at low tide and nearly sank the GW in the LI Sound. Luckily a bunch of other trucks were there and a big lifted JK Wrangler with a winch showed up, didn't even take much for the JK to winch the GW out, I just couldn't get enough traction on the loose surface, which looked like firm sand when I drove up on it. I am now wary of that terrain phenomenon. Very lucky I got out, high tide would have been up to my roof! Winch is now being purchased this week! Surprisingly, the only thing that got wet was the right rear wheel, I had to clean a bunch of sand out of my brake drum. Going to try and fit some wider tires soon.
