FS 78 CJ in STL, MO (pics)
Well i really hate to do this. A bunch of you guys tried to help me fix my engine last week (the 304 that blew up)and i thank you for that but i think this was the straw that broke the camels back. My parents got fed up with it and itll have to go as is. So ill give a pretty good run down of whats on it. If you have questions or want to come see it give me a call 636-207-7669, email me, or post here.
Its almost all stock...
Drive train: 304 v8, t-150, and dana 20 all with 32000 on the rebuild. The engine will turn over and start but it wont run for long. The problem was the oilpump cover warped a little and froze the pump. Nows theres a knocking in it. Bummer! The tranny and t-case all work good. 4wd works as does 4low. Here is all the new stuff in the engine: waterpump, radiator, all wires and belts, battery, cat coverter, maifold gaskets, and some other little stuff. The alxes are the stock amc 20 and dana 30. Both were repainted about 10 years ago. 3.73 gears. Five brand new tires- 4 31 inch general grabbers and 1 wrangler with a new wagon wheel. Front axle has large dics and 6 bolt calipers. Rear has the stanard drums.
Body: I don't know how much you can see from these pics but... My origanl plan was to put a new tub on in the summer. This would have given me time to get the tools and the money. But once again back to the parents. The tub floor has been repared to make it safe. A thick steel plate has been welded in under the drivers side. The passenger side is much better but i rivited some new metal there too. The front clip is newer. No rust on that or the grill. Seats are new and from a wrangler- clothe w/ recline. Hardtop has a sun roof w/ all good glass. Doors were garaged for 15 years. They are the old style but are in awsome shape. I just put wrangler mirrors on them so i can see. The windshield frame and hinges are brand new as is the glass. All the gagues work. Heater and defrost works. Even the washer works. It was just safety and emmisions inspected- good for 2 more years. Good title as well.
I dont really know what to ask for it. I have $4560 and some change in it.I know i cant come close to that with out it running though so... Feel free to come by and look at it.Thanks - Tim
