Picked up a Howell fuel injection, kit for AMC V8. Local 4x4 shop owner bought it 4 years ago for his 360 powered YJ but swapped in an LS instead. Should work nicely on the 401 in my CJ8.
Gotta figure out if I want to swap it onto the factory 4bbl intake or swap in the Edelbrock performer intake I have at the same time.
Not bad for $500.

That's a good score! I have that on the 360 in my Cherokee Chief, and I really like it. I'd probably like it even better on a 401! :thumbsup:

Love the FAST system on my 401 in the Cherokee. Go ahead and get a spare fuel pump to carry with you and drive the snot out of it :thumbsup:

Pair full Scrambler body side panels.
Supposedly OEM ? Seller said he was selling them from their dealership that was no longer a Jeep dealer. They had just been laying around and they were cleaning up.

A CJ7 gentleman is moving soon and he made me a deal. He wanted to get rid of all his leftover Jeep parts. So we traded. He got a restored black leather covered steering wheel and a couple hundred bucks. I got 3 steering wheels, a pair of Laredo front seats, 3 6-cyl-with-power-brakes air cleaners, complete jack, tack, 2 6-cyl intakes I'll probably never use, 6 chrome wagon wheel hubs, pair of locking hubs, pair of chrome bumperetts, and other various small parts. Lots of stuff I can use.

Went to Spring Carlisle today. More Jeep parts that usually there. Not many great deals but I did find a few. $150 got me TJ half doors with soft uppers for my LJ(right exterior color too), tube doors for my CJ8, and a brand new 8274 mounting plate(no hardware). Also bought a hydraulic line flaring tool from Eastwood at a decent show special price.
Those not familiar with Carlisle fairgrounds, 82 acres, 8100 vendor spaces(weren't all full). I walked about 17 miles from 7am-4pm.

Picked this up at an estate auction. Firman brand. Looks to have been test run and put in a garage. Air filter and everything else looks all but brand new. $95, not a Honda but also not $1000.

I see those once or twice a year, sometimes, but no one is ever selling a 5th for a spare. I also know a couple of people looking for that 5th one for a spare on the back.

I am looking for that 5th as a spare. If they were closer I’d be all over it and split them up for the singles to others.

Another box trailer for storage.
It was local so I threw in a bid, really not expecting to get it.
We will remove rear axles and landing gear to sit it on the ground.

Good thing we only had 12 miles to get it home, almost ran out of tires, LOL.
449412210_489158460181959_8887265950505555838_n.jpg


And it's full of goodies. Hopefully sell enough of the pipe supplies to end up with a free trailer.

I had about 6 of those that I cleaned out in our lay down yard last year, filled with about the same water/sewer/road work crap. Scrapped all the pipe stuff, and the trailers due to wood floors being rotted out/termite infested. Scrapped the trailers, Kobelco 220 made short work of that 😆

Your tires looked like mine 😆

Got a free insulated refer trailer in SE PA. Doesn't leak, aluminum body. You haul. Hasn't moved in 30+ years. Have some ok tires for it. Has a Perkins diesel and a half a tank of what was diesel decades ago.

I need something like that! I've looked at containers around here, about $2K delivered. Don't have a "good" place to put one, but certainly need more enclosed storage!
