  2. 1978 Ford F-150 Custom

    Spoke to the machine shop today... Bores were too tight & inconsistent ranging from .0280-0285” over instead of the 030 it should be. Dropped off my pistons so they can mic them then hone cylinders to spec. Will then get new rings & finally start assembly soon

  4. VA Offroad Sports Decals

    I've got a fresh batch of Decals... have a few 32" Large decals great for rear windows or tops of windshields, in White or Black, and a good bit of 12" smaller decals in White or Black. I've got them listed in the Store Page.
  5. 3" XJ Front coil springs

    3.5" will do also
  6. 1978 Ford F-150 Custom

    I love when Brown-Santa shows up with new goodies!
  7. My new addition - 1984 CJ7

    We got the CJ back on the lift, bum T176 removed (input bearing is bad), flywheel off so it can be resurfaced, & swapped front springs.
  8. My new addition - 1984 CJ7

    Jeep goes back on the lift this weekend so we can pull the bum T176 and install my rebuilt one, will finish up fab work on bumper, tweak the spring setup (Stay tuned for more details!) Install my NEW Tires, got a smoking deal on 4 new Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ P3s from 4WD Hardware recently. 770 shipped with a $100 mail in rebate from MT. Typically they retail for 245 ea...
  9. 1978 Ford F-150 Custom

    Dropped the block off today at Terry Walter's Precision Engines, They'll be running it through the vat, checking each cylinder w/ Bore guage, installing my new cam bearings, checking crank align-bore, and potentially a quick hone-job in each cylinder. Meanwhile, I've got my new Edelbrock timing set on order, cam/lifters and pushrods. Hoping as long as everything checks out OK w/ the block, to have it back within a week or two, and then begin reassembly. Comp Cams Hi-Energy Pushrods Edelbrock/Cloyes Double Roller Timing Set - 0 TDC/Straight Up (replaces factory 4* BTDC retarded timing set) Edelbrock Performer Plus Camshaft Edelbrock's Claimed Dyno specs using the above Cam/Lifters, Timing Set, Edelbrock Performer 460 intake and headers...
  10. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    That really doesn't mean much... Parts store sensors are more notorious for going out than the OEM... haha. Not sure beyond checking out the other sensors. I can't recall much of the OBD I 2.5L, as to which sensors they have.
  11. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    Yea, I forgot to mention that was replaced last year as well.
  12. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    While the crank sensors tend to either work or not work, maybe worth a shot... they’re notorious for going bad
  13. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    Won’t even start back up, turns over but no start. It stalls out and then won’t restart. But like I said if I wait 20-30 minutes it’ll start up perfect.
  14. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    Won’t run at any RPM, or just idle?
  15. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    Only ran about 5 minutes and then shuts off and won’t restart. Wait about 30 minutes and it will start right back up. Did the same thing last year and put new plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor on and that seemed to fix it until here recently. Pulled the cap yesterday and sanded/cleaned the points and top of rotor and sprayed some WD-40 and all seemed okay but then same thing happened this morning. It seems to run much better when it’s warmer out (which by Wisconsin standards is anything above 32 :-) )
  16. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    What’s going on now?
  17. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

  18. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    Awesome!! How many miles since I did the install?
  19. AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    5 years later and 1,000 miles away from Roanoke, but still going strong!!
  20. 1978 Ford F-150 Custom

    Cam, main & rod bearings have arrived. Plan to take the block to machine shop soon. Up next is to order Cam, Lifters, Valve Springs & timing set!
  21. 3" XJ Front coil springs

    I'm looking for a set of 3" front coil springs for an XJ if anyone has some laying around. Looking to spend up to $50. Thanks!
  22. 1978 Ford F-150 Custom

    Haha! GM tierods are cheap & readily available. I put them on almost all my builds or any steering upgrades I do for people. Lift also showed up today... well most of it... still waiting on 1 leaf spring & 1 shock
