    Installed a New MTS poly tank

    Honestly, I've always had to fill the Jeep up slowly. It just dosen't like the fast fill rates on most pumps. I usually have to use the first notch if I can at all.

    Installed a New MTS poly tank

    I replaced the feed line and put new hoses on both ends of it. The return line and the vapor line are pretty hammered so I am thinking of replacing them this winter. One of the emissions valves in the back it rotted away, so I'll replace that as well. So far so good.??

    Installed a New MTS poly tank

    So this has been installed since Friday and I have driven it a bit. No issues to report. Haven't driven it enough to fill it up yet to see how much it takes. I now have a functioning gas gauge since my wife's grandmother bought the Jeep some 20 or so years ago. With all I have read I...

    Installed a New MTS poly tank

    So I got my new MTS "15" gallon tank installed yesterday. I like the tank itself, but I have a couple of observations. 1. I don't think it actually holds 15 gallons. I put two in from a small gas can, siphoned a bit out of another car then put just shy of 8 gallons in it. I don't think I...

    Frame repair

    While doing the gas tank replacement, I have discovered that my frame needs some work just to keep it in drivable condition. My question is this: Does anyone make a replacement for the rear crossmember that the gas tank skid plate bolts up to? Not the very rear, but the one in front of that...

    Gas tank shields

    The OEM skid plate is completely shot, however I will check for the rubbers when I get it apart.

    Power to Manual Steering Conversion

    Quite possibly. It would have to be at the end of the season, when I put mine away for the year.

    Gas tank shields

    I'm replacing my original tank with a 15 gal. MTS poly tank. There are 2 plastic shields on my original. Do I need to get them out and reuse them? What are they for?

    15 Gal. Fuel Tank Sending Unit

    Do you happen to have the dimensions for the float? I was thinking about using a cork instead and was thinking about exploring that idea.

    Also, why do you have to keep replacing the sender?

    15 Gal. Fuel Tank Sending Unit

    Obviously, I need to make sure that my gauge is functioning, but from what I've read, if the coolant gauge is working, then the fuel gauge should be good. If you say that they are all the same then I will just get one coming. I'll have to make myself a set up board like what you have there...

    15 Gal. Fuel Tank Sending Unit

    SR4 and bell housing sitting around

    I did a T5 swap in my 81. I have the SR4 sitting in my shop. Input bearing is shot and it pops out of 3rd when you let off of the gas. Is there any point in keeping it or trying to sell it? Also, I have an extra SR4/T4/T5 bell housing. I'm thinking they'll make good scrap metal.

    White Paint for Wheel Restoration

    What would be correct for white paint on the wheels? I'm thinking base model wheels. What color of white? And what sheen? I don't think they would be gloss, but are they semi-gloss, satin, semi-flat? I'm am looking to buy a 15x8" wheel from Coker's for a spare, and I am would like to paint...

    Shifter Boot

    I need to replace the shifter boot on my '81 again. I have the SR-4, so I have the small round boot, AMC Jeep P/N J575 2010. I haven't been at all happy with the Omix or Crown replacements. Anyone have any suggestions? Are OE still available?
