    Finally got around to scrubbing out & pressure washing the block. Started assembly with my new Edelbrock Cam, Clevite77 bearings & reinstalled the crank. Need to torque the main caps. Then check ring gaps, install rings, pistons with new clevite bearings... and so on.

    Shenandoah Machine did my radius arms, drilled & tapped up a size to 1/2x13. Install went along smooth from here minus the fact the bushing sleeve in the upper trackbar mount was siezed to the bolt. Some cutting & welding required!

    Sadly... no. Dropped off both arms & caps at Harman’s Machine Shop, should be ready in the morning

    Today was less productive... the front has been fighting with the radius arms.

    Rolled in Thursday evening, really got started today, plan to wrap up tomorrow. Rear was simplest place to start as less parts to remove... I was pleasantly surprised at how easily everything came loose. Had rear apart and assembled (minus shocks) within 1 1/2hrs. The front brought on some hassle. All 4 lower spring retaining bolts broke off with mild torque applied. We had to head up the driver’s radius arm to get it’s 4 bolts loose & I suspect passenger side will be the same. More pictures & updates to come so stay tuned!!

    Jeep is out of the shop for awhile, time to finish gear break-in period. Still some tweaks to be made, but love driving this ol CJ! Power Brakes & Hydraulic clutch make a great improvement!! Big thanks to Sean & John for all help & laughs!
