OK FELLER!

WHAT KINDA NEW STUFF DID YOU STRAP TO THE ENGINE AFTER THE REBUILD?

GOT MANY TESTS FOR YOU, IF NEED-BE---I NEED THE WHOLE STORY---PICS WOULD BE NICE

BY ALL MEANS. ENGINE SIZE?

ANY MODIFICATIONS YOU HAVE DONE

I'LL HANG WITH YOU AS LONG AS IT TAKES

MANY OF MY CJ ANSWERS ARE OVER 100 RESPONSES LONG, GETTING THEM RUNNING AND CONTINUING WITH OTHER FIXES. KEEP ON RESPONDING RIGHT HERE!

I HAVE TWO."MR JEEP" AND "WILLY"

I HAVE LOTS OF PICS THAT I MADE TO MAKE "FIXIN'" EZer

WITH IT "BUSTING OFF" FOR 30 SECONDS --- ALREADY RULES SOME THINGS OUT!

YOUR TURN CJ PAL

I MADE SOME OF MY PICS A GOOD WHILE BACK---MY USE OF "COLORED TEXT" REALLY LACKED ON SOME BACKGROUNDS---SO I'VE BEEN RE-DOING SOME AS I GO

HERE'S MY LATEST VERSION---IS THIS BETTER?

WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR VOLTAGE IN THIS TEST?

I'M STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FIGGERING OUT WHETHER YOU HAVE A FUEL OR IGNITION PROBLEM

DOES IT JUST "DIE". OR DOES IT SPIT/ SPUTTER/ HICCUP AS IT DIES?

MODS?
