aircraft landing lights are more like 1000 watt bulbs, stock headlights are closer to 150 I think...

And does anyone know of a good (low priced) light to put on the front? Im not looking for the best out there but something bright.
I put $20 lights from the zone in my front bumper, they are bright and they dont have any plastic on them so they should last a minute. If u have lights that take the H3
bulb u should be able to buy 100w lamps at the parts stores to upgrade from the 55w bulbs

Apparently the #1 cylinder is in the back, wires were on wrong, switched #2 and #3 around, it acted like it wanted to live, then switched #1 and #4 and it jumped to life... Then put a new muffler on it since the backfires blew up the old one...

Well thats strange that the wires were wrong, because according to the books and all the info we had them right.. So that leads me to believe that someone changed something around before you bought it, because that chiltons manual is how we hooked them up. Does it run good now? Them new plugs and wires help you out alot?

I'm guessing either someone had pulled the distributor out, or it jumped timing, but my compression gauge wont fit it so only time will tell... My guess is that when we were out on the trail it just got wet, and the parts badly needing a tuneup started acting up, then we started fuking with it the firing order got messed up, and, being sure it was right (because that's what everything said) it was wrong... Going to see today when we hit cedarcreek!
