hello from a new guy

I have a 75 CJ5. Been wrenching since I was a kid. Have a lot to learn, but have done pretty good so far. Guess my sarcasm wasn't a good way to intro myself, and had no hits for distributor advice.

My little CJ was purchased about 4 years ago. Did a lot in the first year before I was selected for recruiter duty for Uncle Sam's finest Army. Work too many hours to get as much quality time w/ the CJ as I'd like, not to mention the wife!!

Currently replacing another crane cam which chewed a lifter and lobe. seems the lifter didn't rotate. i'll mike it in the AM.

I was stuck building the 6 popper w/o the aid of the army's car craft shops. Since I couldn't do the 350 I wanted I built one of the most killer 258's I've seen yet. .512/.484 lift and 298 adv. duration. clifford intake w/ edlebrock 500 (which needs off road needle and seat conversion). 50K coil, MSD, .45 milled head, dual outlet headers. headwork springs, etc. to match cam.

look forward to hearing from fellow jeepers who share my joy of the best vehicle i've yet owned...

Re: hello from a new guy

Sarcasim is OK,, But when new and using it no one knows if it is sarcasm or if the new guy is a moron,, Lets hope it is not the later [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Welcome, you will grow to love this place... Thanks for the military service,, it is appriciated around here.

5's are fun toys,, got one in the garage, just no money to put in it.

As for the no replies,, Most folks don't post if they don't know the answer for sure.. It will loosen up just keep posting. There is alot of experience around here and it is pretty easy to tap.

Welcome aboard, and thanks for your service!

I looked at your post about the distributor and can see why you didn't get a response. That's a mighty tough problem you threw out. Without a distributor machine and a dyno, you don't know what change you have made or what it does to the engine. Pretty much shooting in the dark.
