Seriously, your build is an inspiration.

I agree . .  I have been tempted to post . . but seems like that would be taking Millennium falcon's thread off topic. Smile

edit: Oops just noticed a new thread was started . .  need to check it out.  :-)

What did you use for a boot around the twin stick and overdrive shift levers? I can’t seem to find any manufacturer selling a rubber boot with 3 shift lever holes.

I used an old black leather glove. The fingers work perfectly for the levers. This link has some pictures of the process when I did it.

It’s been several years since the Jeep got its new heart... It’s still running great! I made a video for my channel that gives an overview of the build and covers some of the questions I get quite often. The starter is a just a gear drive starter for an l-head.

I am 2-1/2 minutes into this video,  first with a smile on my face from the trails,   then with a smile and a literal laugh during the "question" segment.   

I should wait until I watch the entire video before posting,  but could not help myself  ->  Love it Seth, so far.

edit:  finished the video . . wow, a good reminder of how much went into it.  Absolutely amazing!  (building the Jeep,  but also the quality of the video. LOL   that is no small feat)

Superb video, Seth! You're a born teacher. A lot of good reasons to go the 'oil burner' route with a vintage jeep -- with guidance from your video.

If there was any information through YOUR experience with the oil filter plate/adapter.
would you do anything different?
was the 1" aluminum plate the right size ? I have 1.5", (maybe too thick)
it was close to the sector shaft on the steering box but worked well?
the engine we are using is a BEW, so maybe not the same. block bolt pattern is different I found out.
