    With Pampers on my engine, it gives a whole new meaning to "changing the oil."

    I have a smaller size drip pan. Since the engine leak is centralized, I may bring bring that pan along. it will fit neatly under my original upholstery rear bench seat too.
    But I loved my Pampers...

    Do they make pampers in Jeep size? :D
    I wish I could just rig up something temporarily. I actually recognized the "puddle signature" in the parking lot where I meet for cycling. It was still there...

    I've learned a lot on my jeep issues and ... on completely different things as well!
    Just spend the last 15 minutes Google-searching/reading on Brownie boxes and 8V71 Diesel engines - made from...

    I've got a CJ3B with the F134. It seems to get rolling best using 1,2, over, then I do the "useless" 3 under just to get it ready for 3 over if it looks like I'll be rolling a while.
    Roger that?...
  6. WARN ing - An overdrive-related silly question...

    It's me, Mark (of the Daily Puddle).
    Now that I'm driving my 3B much more regularly, I've noticed something I never noticed when I drove this as a 16 year old child.
    Normally my "in traffic"...

    Thanks for all the input... and good information on "future leaks" for me. Well I hope not!

    I think for starters I'll just replace the oil pan. Last October I did up the bolts. Some were...

    Thanks all! I have a weekend of work and probably not on the jeep but I'll keep it's flat metal diaper underneath it!

    PAIN IN THE REAR... main seal, that is!

    So it's me again - Mark, novice jeep mechanic.
    Jeep is running as you all know. As I drive I've noticed, of course, all the "new" sounds. So far they are manageable.
    Back in 1995, when I parked...

    I will eventually post on my suspension, but like many others, I'm still waiting on availability of shackles. I miss the days when there were actual stores, that had stuff. Now it seems all these...

    I recently did have a fight with an expandable foam can! Stupid built in "straw" kept clogging up so I cut it shorter and shorter and it kept a' coming out! I guess I should have held it upside down...

    NICE!!! I really wanted to fire a bullet in this crappy paint can, bought at ACE hardware. Luckily the second can worked and I avoided painting myself!

    Thought I'd post something relevant to the topic I started!
    Since the jeep is "running" now, I'm back to dealing with my bucking bronco Rancho suspension that I hate now. Funny, when I was 17 it...

    My F134 is definitely the quietest it's ever been, well other than when it didn't run for 25 years.
    Now I hear all the other clicks, whirrs, and squeaks coming from the other parts, but that's...

    I never have either. I wish I'd recorded that sound thought. But I did have two neighbors verify that I wasn't hearing things!

    Well the whirring is gone. Maybe "Remanufactured in China" alternators need some break in time, for bearings?
    Fan belt squeak is gone. The bar soap worked better since the belt dressing didn't....

    Losing mind.
    Installed NEW belt and my "whirring" sound is STILL THERE. There's nothing left! Can a new alternator have a bad bearing? Even my mechanically inclined neighbors agree it sounds,...

    Another shoe dropped!!!
    So... I was "FOR SURE" it was now the water pump. I had removed the belt and the noise stopped. It originally sounded like the alternator but when It wasn't - it had to have...

    And more to my last post...
    So it wasn't my alternator! But I have a new one anyway. The old one was 40 years old so it was bound to go out, right? (Everyone say yes please)
    I also learned that an...

    First... we did put the timing light on the coil and it was definitely whacky!
    Second and MOST important: IT'S WORKING! :D
    I installed the new distributor with the new type of adjustment collar...

    Hello
    I'm sorry I may have mis-wrote something: the ballast resistor was only in the rocket scientist's (Greg) set up, which was for me to observe how the coil should strongly spark, even if...

    Wiggled, pulled, danced, did hokey pokey, etc... oh and I did that on the wire too. Sadly, the wire is good and full of continuity. :)

    I did already test for that voltage.
    Today just for kicks, I added a few drops to the distributor oil port. I don't think I've ever added oil, at least since 1977. I double checked my points. The...

    This has been challenging!
    My plug wires are in the correct order. I wish that was the issue, darn it.

    I'm sure there is something wrong in my distributor now.
    With help from a friend (he...

    Thank you LarrBeard!
    Right after I posted today, I went to the garage, stared at the coil and realized that I've only tested it assuming all was well in my distributor. I had that issue with the...
