    Don't forget that there is a head bolt under the carburetor throat. It's a little short one. If you leave it out, the engine will almost run, for a little while. Really bad JuJu.

  12. Shifting for new driver

    It's really not that hard to do and it lets the new driver do one thing at a time. I did that with my grandson, then I had him put his hand over mine to let him feel the motion.

    You talked about a drip here and a drop there. I think that's about as good as 70-year old Jeeps get - or probably ever were. I can remember the dirt floor in the home place garage and there were...
