Clever idea using the hole saw to cut nice multi-ply pads for your rad mount--I gotta remember this. Thanks for sharing!

I made some awesome rubber pads for my radiator mount today.

It took a while but I got the broken bolt out of the back of the block!

I had the utmost faith in you Jon. Looks like you got it without even damaging the paint.

I had a lot of trouble getting the oil gallery plugs out so I could put in fittings for the oil filter line and the oil pressure gauge line.
I had to cut an extractor to shorten it and grind the end square to take a 1/4” wrench. I was pretty proud of myself for figuring that out but it would have been much easier to install these fittings while the block was in the work bench. I also got the fuel pump and oil filler tube installed this afternoon. So overall a good day.

You were right about the hole missing for the accelerator linkage bracket. I thought I had it plugged for painting but when I went to attach the bracket turns out there is actually a bolt broken off in there and I don’t have the proper sized extractor. 

Good eye!

I get lucky sometimes.  Had the same problem.  Pretty small for an extractor.  I used a smaller left hand drill bit. 

Things are looking great by the way.  
I had wrenches on one of those PCV’s before. Pulled on em until I was convinced they don’t come apart. But there it is.

I cleaned up my big pile of spare parts today and got it all sorted in to bins which I have now labeled. It’s way better than the mixed up hodgepodge pile of boxes and pails full of stuff I started with. Should make it easier to find stuff. I found a PCV valve that I needed and spent some time cleaning it up.


Before...


After...


Cleaned...


Separated... (orientation is wrong)
Like Mike said, that was a bugger to take apart. One wrench held in the vise and two hand pull with the other to get it to split open.


Cleaned and ready for assembly (correct orientation of parts)....

It was a big day for the Jeep build today.
We got the flywheel and clutch mounted and the engine installed.

FLYING ALONG? 

More like crawling along Andy. But thanks.

I am having trouble getting the master cylinder lined up properly on the after market mount so I filled in the holes on the mount so I can measure and position it properly.







Remounted so I can measure where the hole needs to go.
