    I have that same problem even with good overhead lighting. A well placed, bright, work light shining on what I am trying to weld helps me. I also started wearing dark shirts when welding. Lighter...

    There should be a chart on the welder or in the instructions for the welder to give good starting points. It just takes a little practice to get decent results. The first time I used a mig welder I...

    X2. If I think what I want may not be on the truck I send the driver a text so he can get it ordered. Additionally, I don’t know of a place locally that calibtates torque wrenches so I get that done...

    Number one would be the culprit if it is grooved where the seal rides. Had to order a couple of yokes for mine. I read somewhere there is a ready sleeve (or redi-sleeve?) kit available to do a...

    My distributor was in pretty bad shape so I opted to replace the whole thing with the electronic ignition replacement. It has the only metric hardware on the entire jeep :mad:

    Even with a used refer engine it appears to be a several thousand dollar mod. Each major component 3(?) will cost more than $1000 each. Could maybe do without a turbo. To me it looks like engines are...

    There are some good discussions and articles on diesel conversions elsewhere on the internet. I want a diesel in my CJ3A but it isn't cheap.

    Popping out of second can also be caused by worn poppets on the shift rails. The poppet balls in mine were badly worn (as bad as the gear in the picture I posted) and one of the springs was broken.

    I had one from a ‘66 CJ5 apart and reassembled in an USAF dormitory parking lot many years ago. I don’t recall anything bad about the task. I currently have one from a CJ3A disassembled in my shop....

    I can usually tell the difference between gear oil and engine oil just by the smell if not by feel. Overfilled by how much? I can't see the output shaft seals leaking unless grossly over-serviced or...

    Very nice! A lot of people greatly underestimate the old lever actions. I ran with a guy when I was stationed in Arizona who only hunted with the “old west” cartridges. 200 yards was a nothing shot...

    I have heard of drilling and tapping JB Weld. There are a lot of success stories doing it but I have never attempted it myself. As long as it isn’t a stressed part or won’t have gas against it all...

    You just saved me a search. I had never heard of 10-27. I know none of my tap and die sets have it. I think the only place I have seen 27 pitch is on pipe thread. I think 10-32 is the most common...

    I just took a look at the pictures of the line. If you are looking at duplicating that line I wouldn’t think it would be very hard. Probably only need the bender for the top bend. I may be missing...

    No fire or no spark? I have better luck watching a plug for spark than trying to short a lead with a screw driver. I have also removed the distributor cap and cranked the engine while watching for...

    I use dehydrator plugs in place of spark plugs in the aircraft engines I pickle. It’s amazing how fast they can turn color on an engine with the exhaust, intake and vent taped shut. Even the...

    Great, got a link to a tube bender waiting on moderator approval. I have a smaller lever type bender that does 3 different diameter tubes. One like it should work well for you.
