Nice. So it didn't need a new fuel pump?

I let it run for a half hour. Seems fine. No stumbling, no hesitation. Alternator charges, good oil pressure. Didn't get hot.

Exhaust is loud, big hole just before the converter.

The only thing that is wrong is the color. Oh, we may have dented the bumper a little fitting the two of them on the trailer.

I found the fuel pump from the grand I pulled dougs 318 out of, I'll keep it out and throw it in the spare parts pile.

Hoping to have the "other one" done this week.

Doug and I got the cage test fitted a couple days ago. Got the day off today, hopefully get it in and tacked together.

Mike L will grab us some material from his work. Just need some scrap pieces for gussets and bracing as well as plates for the floor.

Chris was going to talk with Mike over at Kamikaze for a hoop for "this one"

We are looking for a roll bar from a tj, yj, cj. Something to build off.

Huge thanks to Mike over at Kamikazie. Setting us up with a cage for 'that one'

Things are coming together. Hoping to have 2 of them finished next week. Could be looking for some help. The 'other one' needs the front brakes done, there is lots of work to be done on the inside of all of them. 'this one' needs the carpet and headliner taken out as well as a fan installed. Then cage fitted.


I think we'll make it with all three. 2 weeks to go.
