    1984 CJ-8 Project...here we go

    Thanks, good to know. I saw 94-99 Wrangler external slave clutch design AX15s from DeadJeeps (100% positive reviews --not DeadJeepParts) in running condition on Ebay for around 800-900 and was wondering if I should go that route. Yeah, we had 3 kids when I had the Fj40, and I put a UTV seat in...

    Thanks, excellent points. I'm also putting in a family rollcage in the rear and I'll need anchor points for those too. Yeah, like you, I'll probably be doing mostly street and light offroad cruising, but it would nice to be able to cruise the hill country trails with no worries. Good to hear...

    1984 CJ-8 Project...here we go

    Thanks for the info. I think the T5 would be okay, but given that I have crazy noises coming from the tranny already, I think I'm ready for a change. The jeep isn't roadworthy yet, I just gathered this from the quick spins I've taken around the block. The question now is, should I go for the...

    Ok, another update. Swapped out the 32/36 Weber for a new one and now it idles and revs perfectly. Still fine tuning it. Engine compartment is mostly done except for replacing the leaky power steering lines and replacing some wiring. I'll probably do another compresion check soon, now that I can...

    Hey, thanks for the feedback. Can you give me an idea about how tall the seatbacks are with the headrests fully extended? I have one teenager and 3 more fast growing kids. Did you think of putting the seats on risers as well so that you are not sitting so close to the ground? Also, did you do...

    1984 CJ-8 Project...here we go

    Update.. So I got it running and it starts right up, but once the choke closes and the butterfly valve starts to open, then engine wants to die. when I close the butterfly valve to 1/8 open, it runs smoothly. So I must have a lean fuel scenario. I have the weber 32/36 on it, and decided...

    1984 CJ-8 Project...here we go

    OK, so I changed the transmission oil, transfer case oil, and engine oil (I will do the axles later this week). All looked old but normal except for the transmission oil. I have the old T5 and when I pulled the plug, what looked like brown water came out. Smelled like ATF/oil a bit, but...
