Sold my TJ finally and have acquired a 1980 ScoutII. Thing has been sitting for a long time. What I am wondering is where you apartment dwellers work on your rig. My complex gives much grief if you even lift up your hood. I gotta get a house but like hell I am gonna pay some slacker at a service station and get jacked up for a tune up and valve cover gaskets.

Hell I am thinking about going in the mountains and finding a nice soft piece of grass to work around but sure would be nice to find somewhere else to go.

Soda? I thought Corona or a nice pale ale of some sort would be in order for compensation.

Looks like what I need to do besides a basic tune up is:

1. Re-route the fuel line away from the header that goes around the outside of my frame(wierd.

2. Install an electric fuel pump on the tankside, screw the mechanical. Takes forever to get gas to the carb.

3. Prolly could need some carb adjustments but I have no idea how to do that kinda thing.

4. Valve cover gaskets need replaced.

5. Reverse shackle, SOA, 35's, gears, custom bumpers and a winch. Probably later when I can actually offord those things. But will deffinately happen.

6. Pay some dues and get in on the Reno4x4 thing and do some wheeling.

fair enough.. everyone reacts differently to alcohol.. personally, i get really relaxed.. as though im on laughing gas...

but everyones different- that and its all about moderation.. life goes on and we respect your decision to stay sober.. i have quite a few friends who i believe would benefit greatly from making a decision like that- then again they wouldnt be a tenth as fun as they are sober as they are with a few beers in them- whatever

When's the MJ gonna be ready :(:( :(
patience young kairo, I want to be like you, but I need all of the parts first. Basically what I need is a fuel cell (I wanted to use and xj tank, but they poke holes in the gas tanks at PnP), my spacer for the t-case and some hangers and I am good to go. I just have to find a tank, one of the guys has a 12 gallon tank, but I was hoping for something bigger. We will have to see what happens.

hey what about the other salvage yards for a gas tank.. otherwise- i suppose it wouldnt be all that expensive just to buy one from like 4 wheel hardware??

I haven't tried any of the other yards, the only reason I want to use an xj tank is to keep it simple, the xj tank has the same sending unit, same stuff I need for my mj

I would call Pick n' save. they don't punch their gas tanks, as most of their vehicles still run. number is: 246 0711
