    Also, I’d like to keep the old CV that you’re replacing.

    Looking at the forums I see a lot of folks complaining that CVs labeled as Type 4 or 944 are actually Type 2, cause Type 4 or 944 are so hard to find.  If they are type 2 and the type that are described as “off road prep”or “clearanced”, supposedly some are good 22 degrees, but if they are type 2 they are only 32mm wide.  That may cause problems with spline length and bolt length.  Just wanted to give you a heads up.

    Sidehill called right after John’s last. He’s was ready to come pick his car up,  guess he figured he was kicked out. Cars was on the property so your grandfathered in man, “we will build it if it comes” 😎😎

    Finished rebuilding and installed drivers side CV axle yesterday. Everything together correctly, clocked and phased. Waiting on a new CV joint for the pass side, it may be here tomorrow definitely Thursday. 9A035D69-6763-4252-8C8A-E3AC3885C62D

    New tail lights in.954BBC28-D774-468F-9E95-AB6E9803F1F9

    Found a couple of broken connections going to passenger side running light/brake light.3CA4E2A1-1654-4DAD-979E-7490DD1CE3C8

    Good to go now.54C14A68-CB11-4DAB-9F59-854B7E1EC920

    Went to set timing, noticed that carb linkages were out of sync. Linkage was bound up in the adjustment area.  Pulled those off, lube everything up and reinstall.  Fires right up and sounds great. Timing is set at 7° at idle, full advance , of 30°, is all in by  1900 or so RPMs.5F180B03-1FA2-4950-B690-6E27F14606DA

    Also took care of the right hand side fresh air tube. E8DAE79B-E121-4B59-A708-F7544BC01F78

    We will build it if it comes.

    “Clean shop Pat” on attack.

    I think that one just lacks a CV and then it’s ready to rip it!!!!

     

    I just hope the parkway projects stay under control… I’d rather keep moving on things that are already here than take in more work… they are all more than willing to pay for the time…   The parkway stuff will have to wait on the parkway man to heal up!!!!!!!! 😎  😎   If someone is in a pinch… hell yeah I will make an exception..8-)  Not gonna stack up work….  I want to clean the slate up a bit… 😎

    Thanks for the update and the photos.  And I’m glad you solved the turn signal problem, and more importantly got the carb linkage figured out.

    Do you think it’s OK for the fuel filter to be where it is?

    The shocks are FOA gas shocks.

    I  think KB needs to make a call to JJ tomorrow and talk the talk. Then this should happen. I’m hoping for a quick scuff and paint and then a baby tractor and new trans. Going to be a cool early early shop truck😎 maybe…. haha the bosses need to discuss.

    I plan to run it on local trails make sure it holds up, then see which Jeep trails it will handle in the San Juans. I have property near silverton if a bunch of you want to come camp some weekend and do some trails this summer.
