Not on a bench but changed a master cylinder in my CJ7. Had to screw with the dreaded brake switch. It fell apart into 4 pieces I think it was. Put it back together and it works. Bunch of plastic wood pellet bags as a pad on the sill, legs on a big trash can. It sucked but it worked. Resized_20191215_134313_6894.jpeg

Just because you guys inspire me...These were in a box of schtuff from when I took possession. One more shout out to the PO

And here's the part number off the only remaining attached piece. If I recall they're for an LJ. I had to cut to fit.

We do us a ton of baseball around here so my little CJ8 1/2 is turning 9. I always make the kids some little "Dad gift" so he's getting this tomorrow. It started out as 1/2" die. brass round stock, took a few spins on the lathe and presto - here it is. Now to only get brass balls to go with the brass bat, ha ha.

Bringing this back for 2020... I cleaned off my workbench from all the tear downs and build ups lately for some art work.

What started as blank wood and plates...

Once those were done and I was kicking around some other ideas, I remembered I picked up someting a while back... want to see if I can turn this into a reverse grille... more to come.

And when I say "clean" workbench, this is pretty clean... I still have to put away a few things and have a couple beers and sort through bolts, but this is about as clean as it has been in a year, so I am happy.

How did you pick that particular housing?
A few factors. I wanted a 9” and liked the cool factor of a fabricated housing. Quick Performance was the only company that would build it to my specs and offset, use 1/4” DOM tube, weld the perches, and still be competitively priced. Plus they offered a package price which included axle shafts and a disc brake conversion.

Perfect. That's all of what I would be looking for too....
