On the back burner again for a few months. I'm getting so damn frustrated that I have all the shit to do it but just lack the time as of late. Now I won't even have a chance to look at it even till mid July now. I will be taking a hiatus from home to head to Motts Childrens Hospital for at least a month with my daugter for her 4th and hopefully final open heart surgery.

So I finally got a start on it. Alboy and Big Al came over to help and bring a cherry picker. I caught Al buying his latest mod for his TJ.


The start of the removal. The radiator had nothing but dust in it from the blown headgasket.


Sexy chilling on Jackstands.


Shooting to have the new motor in and running Saturday. Then working on the lift.


Yesterday I put fluids back in the scoobie and took her for a baja run and tested the flex. It need a bit more droop. :)

2 months later and I'm sure I lost/forgot where all the bolts go to put the damn motor back in.
Good news is I have a new clutch in the garage.
