I actually use the bottle opener quite often, I found these cokes bottled in Mexico, made with cane sugar and bottled in the whole glass shebang still! It's a novelty I enjoy a bit

Ummm, I never used one to open a beer? We used to drink Falstaff long necks. I wouldn't try to count how many. They haven't been made for  several years.

So I get home today and it started right up, and then about a half hour later I turn it off to fiddle with something and after about 15 minutes of sitting I finish up and go to move it, but I have to crank on it for about a full minute in total (not holding the starter) and then it finally and weakly starts then comes to full strength and drives no issues.

I pulled a plug out and it looks gray all around it, so I will be getting a new set to see if that helps some

Any thoughts? I can provide more detail on it's weird start if needed

 My 2a does that and found out it was flooding with fuel after shut down.  If I hold the gas peddle down about half way it starts up easy.

I did replace my plugs and cleaned the positive terminal and it fired right up. My guess is with the ching pow fuel pump (electric) its overwhelming the carb and forcing fuel in, cause I have noticed a leak around the carb

In our area they have started releasing Dr. Pepper made with cane sugar bottled in the old 10-2-4 labeled bottles. They come packaged in a 4 pack carton......taste just like 'old' DPs if you like them.

I enjoy the bottled cane sugar Cokes every once in a while myself for a change of pace. Thumbs Up

I'm not sure what it was but my starting problem is gone now, for now at least. It cranked a few times then came right on. It was a tad longer than normal

Tomorrow I would like to replace the electrical fuel pump with the original mechanical one. Maybe replace the oil lines too.

No big jeep updates, as I've been on vacation with my fiancee visiting her family, but we got the wedding cake topper


I'll be home in a few days and drive it. I will say, I certainly miss it when it's not around and walking around I spot alot of places to drive it!

I have my uncles Mariene dress uniform in a small box in my shed, I pulled the top out  (cap) and admired it, back in the box and quietly closed  the lid.
