What Crazy Eddie SHOULD look like

Hey, Aaron, Booger dropped in to help sort out wiring problems in the shop, which has gone very well. Drove his Bright Mango YJ all the way from the east coast. Pretty nice looking ride! It even shines!

Makes you want to break out the Bondo, doesn't it.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

Mango! WOW!
Takes a REAL MAN to drive a MANGO YJ with a straight face!

Get things worked out, or still having problems?

After meeting the "Real Crazy Eddie" I will never look at Mango colored Jeeps the same again. To me there is only ONE.

Is this the only hammer you've got?

Yeah, but is it a 9,000 RPM - 4 Cylinder Mango Jeep!?

Nothing like a 4 cylinder chain saw engine in a Jeep!

She's a real beaut JimLou!!! Booger has the right to be one proud Jeep owner if you ask me!

There's a guy a couple miles down the highway with a nice bone stock Mango YJ,. Just last nite he and his wife drove by with the top off. Me and Robyn were sitting outside and I quickly said, "look Robyn, it's Eddie back when he was just a baby!" She replied with a "ohh, he's so cute."

TR, I wish I could spin 9k, 5750 is about all he wants! I know where there's a '91 Chrysler LeBaron with a turbo charged 2.5l in it that has given me some bad ideas!

That's right JDogg, don't be a hater, embrace the mango...

Aaron.

Does he get strange looks at the gas station when he's mixing the oil and gas?

Thanks guys for all the help, and a special thanks to TR and RRich. Thanks Jim for your hospitality, grub, shelter, and a special thanks for the Mrs for the GREAT cole slaw. The jeep has nooooo idiot lights on now, TR you were right on about the connector, it wasn't making the connection. I finally figured out what the lighted arrow is for, I'm going in the right direction. Jim, I can't put into words the good time I had while I was there, next year I'm going to try my darndest to make the bash. Made the trip to Ridgetop, Tenn A-ok and the farther I went the better it ran. Well, let me close for now, Jim if you need any more help with the electricity let me know, and thank you all for the help.

Don't thank me, you guys were the ones working on it!

I was just wasting time and spit balling...
I just happened to be the one with the 'Spitball' it just happened to be!

(Honestly, I though Rich had it when he started talking about Over limit and the Air Conditioner circuit...)

This should be a lesson to everyone to pinch those female connectors a little, and pack EVERYTHING with dielectric grease!

Glad you like the 'Midwest'...
Lots of heat, humidity, 40 pound-twin engine mosquitoes and fat guys that like to shoot the bull!

We DO eat well! That's why we're all fat!

Like your new signature!

It was great having you here. It's just too bad we didn't have more time to go play, but we made good progress. Thanks ever so much for fixing up the GFCIs and the rest of the wiring problems. I'll let you know what P&S has to say about the last trouble-maker.

Since you left I pressure washed the porch. It'll be ready for paint as soon as I fill a few nail holes. And I got the diff out of the CJ and taken apart. It has several problems; the locker was slipping because one of the thrust washers is completely worn out. Also the cross pin is worn out and the holes in the carrier that the cross pin fits into are woggled out by .007". I'll get new parts ordered today. I think I can take up that .007" with epoxy. I have an inquiry in to Loctite; they have several products for just that application.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

Thanks Jim, just remember "RODENATOR" my bud here in Ridgetop and his son watched that site and we laughed till we cried, my son got a kick out of it also and yep, I have a new sideline now. My bud down here turned me on to a music place and I bought a new Fender 5 string Banjo, its beautiful and the price was real reasonable too, going home tomorrow, I have a weird feeling there's something not right back at the home 20, plus I have a permit review for the garage on thursday. TR if you hadn't mentioned the connector I'd still be chasing ghosts, many thanks, I might see you at the heavy weapons meet sometime my bud here says he's ready to go. Well let me scoot gonna help with some yard work, thanks everyone.
