   As I mentioned before the loose timing gear had worn the key and keyway.
I could see wear on the key,so I hoped that the good used key would be tight..

Cry It wasn't the cam shaft keyway was worn! 
Not only that but the keyway in the crankshaft had a slight amount of wearOuch

Well I had nothing to lose!! So I went full bubba on it.... I got some sleeve retainer made by locktight,
And took a punch to the crank shaftShocked
 
Oh come on don't look so shocked it's not like I WELDED the crank gear to the crankshaft!!!

I did think about welding itWink


 Back together and no more terrible clatteringClap
I was still having trouble with the motor pulling down real bad,I could hold the throttle open in one place and it would gain rpm and then suddenly die back to an idle?

I thought oh great the timing is jumping around!  At this point I was thinking I should of welded that gear!

I thought I better check the choke, so I removed the air cleaner tube.
It smoothed right out and ran great!! Set it back on,  immediately choked down..... What in the world! 

Well turns out the small after market air cleaner had most of the paper pleats  collapsed and plugged even though it only had a couple hours runtime on it.

Was relieved it was such an easy fix.

Test run to NAPA for a new air cleaner.

Meanwhile out at Dad’s shop
 
We where working on his latest project, A 1947 cj2a that hadn’t been driven for close to 40 years. 



After getting it running it was time for a quick test drive... oh wait no brakes!! A(slow test drive)!!



Now back in the shop for a quick paint job and brakes. 




 Look for this jeep on a flatfender adventure in 2018!!

Ben,
I think you need to bring Desert Dog down to Moab for Easter Jeep Safari. We need to know how those tires perform on the red rock. It would be a service to mankind. 
Just sayin’ Smile

(U tube channel Tongue
We’ve talked about it, problem is neither of us are tech savvy!
 I sometimes find myself so focused on getting good shots while on adventures, that I forget to enjoy the jeeping. 
I’m trying to find a good balance, we decided we need a full time camera crew Clap
