    Fuel Issues 1984 Alaskan CJ8

    Thanks for the insight! Found the issue. There is a rubber line that goes around the shock between the steel line from the tank and the steel line to the fuel pump. When I grabbed it, it felt super soft and think it may have collapsed when the pump created pressure. Replaced it and fuel started...

    Fuel Issues 1984 Alaskan CJ8

    I ran an auxiliary tank to the pump and it worked fine. I know the issue has to be the fuel line from the tank to the pump. I really don’t want to pull the tank again.....

    Fuel Issues 1984 Alaskan CJ8

    Rig was running fine then all of a sudden stopped getting fuel. I replaced the fuel filter and pump, blew out the line back to the tank with no luck. Decided to pull the tank and found the sending unit was toast. I installed a new sending unit, new fuel vents and rubber lines, then blew out the...

    Alaskan Postal Scrambler/World Cab - count/registry - help build the list

    I still have the ones on line 22 and 23, I'll need to get the VIN for the one I'm having restored as it is in for paint and reassembly now. The one I sold to the gent in Michigan I believe may be Scr8 but I'm not sure. All the Postals I know of have tops and doors. Glad to share any additional info!

    Also, are 31's the biggest tires I can run at stock form? I think we had 32's on my old '82 Scrambler but remember them rubbing a bit.

    1984 Alaska Postal Build

    Decision made! I'm buying another running postal in a few weeks with no top and am going to tranfer my top to it. I hope to restore it back to somewhat original. This is a huge step for me in getting on the road ASAP as I can't stand just seeing the postal sitting in my garage! I WANT TO DRIVE...

    Thanks all for the input, I'm leaning towards keeping it which I'll keep quiet from the wife for now. There ate some nasty dents on the rear top but may try a heat gun trick to reform. Thanks reg guy on the Northwest Driveline tip, they're about 10 miles from me.

    1984 Alaska Postal Build

    Thanks guys for the input, I'm trying not to let the fact that it's rare and only has 41K original miles cloud my judgement but truly want to restore it or at least get it on the road. I'm leaning towards buying the parts Scrambler and changing parts when time permits. I do know it has a Dana...
