    Thanks bmorgil!
    Yes did read up on the L head using studs. Glad I have an F head although I'm jealous the L has the "WILLYS" on it and mine doesn't. :(
    And... yes - when I started trying to lift...

    Yes I knew KW sold these but I've found a local place that carries something very close, just not with the wide part of the shank just below the head, which was my concern.
    The other thing with...

    Ok, my F134 head wants to go back on. However I don't like the head bolts. Plus I don't think you're really supposed to re-use them. I'm sure these were at one time. And, since they're nearly 70...

    Regular work, house and yard work keeps getting in the way of my jeep, but... the valve is out. It wasn't too hard. I'd rather have a spring compressor that fits in more like a "needle nose" style...
  5. Thank you! I'm going to stick with exhaust...

    Thank you!
    I'm going to stick with exhaust valves for now. I'm willing to remove the head again later if need be.
    For the future, I'd actually just like to have the entire engine rebuilt...

    Love that story!!! Thank you.

    Soooooo, believe it or not, I did rebuild an F head about 40 years ago. It lasted a year, then did that major "blow up" I discussed earlier.
    I do remember what is...

    Well sh*t!
    I mean that in a "thank you" way for you guys, for waking me up.
    What I had planned on doing was just the single valve myself, with a great looking used valve I had, new spring, seats...

    I think I found the problem...

    Should I start a new thread for all the questions I may have? Or change my original title to "Not a carb but a valve!" ?
    Or just keep it going here?
    I've already...

    Well I'm glad my confession was boring! That's a good thing.

    Yes it was rather exciting driving on the freeway - screaming along at 50mph, headed up to the mountains - then suddenly hearing the...

    I had the needle "seat" pin flipped the wrong way... it was up against the float instead of where it should have been... seating! :(
    I don't know what I was thinking. It should have been obvious...

    The carburetor leak is gone. It was such a stupid mistake that I'm afraid to say what it was! I'll just say I put something where something else should have been, and vice versa!
    However my...

    Same here. By the time I'm across the intersection, everyone jostling for pole position and gone around me!

    I've noticed that after driving my jeep now, after the 25 year "break" that people are...
  14. Thanks bmorgil!! Is that piece just a...

    Thanks bmorgil!!
    Is that piece just a dust/debris seal? Both my old carbs didn't have one so I'm assuming (bad to assume) that it was added later?
    Believe it or not, I've never rebuilt a...
  15. My horn is still great... but my carburetor isn't!

    Hello all
    I thought of adding this to my combination "what to do with brake shoes" and my horn-related posts (whoops almost said "horny") but decided to create a new thread.;)

    Back when I got my...

    Now I've got that song in my head "Bull in the woods, chewing tobacco; Bull in the woods, chewing tobacco..." I'll be hummin' it all day while I mow the lawn and putter with my jeep.

    So yesterday I'm at a signal, waiting to turn left. Any, you guessed it, the left arrow goes green and the moron in front of me is staring at his phone.
    I wait 1.75 seconds and realized he's...

    HOOOONK!!!
    It works now. Thanks again all.
    I took it apart easily. The cap just popped off with a screwdriver. I cleaned the contact, messed around. Got it to "HMMMMMMM," then adjust the distance...

    Where is this dog located??? I'd LOVE to feed the culprit directly into the open mouth of a large hungry dog! :D

    Well hell! Horn arrived. It appears identical to my old one. Maybe it is??? No it's not; this one has a bracket on it.
    BUT... the damn thing doesn't work! I thought the listing said "working," but...

    Well it's definitely a mystery as to where that stuff disappeared to. What bugs me is that I'm probably going to find other things missing as I think of them!

    I found what looks like a nearly identical horn. It's on the way. And the new Omix spare tire box is already mounted.
    For whatever it's worth, I filed a police report in the rare event that this...

    That's hilarious! Hmmm... I suspect that jeep was prepped just a little before the dismantle and "re-mantle." :D
