Put the engine no.1 piston on its compression stroke/TDC and then align the cam and crank markings as indicated in the repair manual

DO YOU."REALLY". LOVE YOUR JEEP?

MY PRESENT TWO (OF 7 TOTAL), HAVE OUTLASTED 2 PREVIOUS FEMALES, ALL RECEIVED MEGA "TLC".I STILL HAVE THE JEEPS

I TOLD THE PRESENT ONE ON OUR 1ST DATE."THE JEEPS AND I ARE ONE!". YOU MUST STRIVE TO KEEP UP. MARRIED TO HER SEVEN YEARS NOW!

SO LIKE. WHICH ENGINE YOU GOT?

DO YOU KNOW YOUR WAY AROUND THE ENGINE. OR IS THIS YOUR 1ST TIME ATTEMPTING A TUNE UP?

TOOLS. DWELL/TACH METER AND A "PLAIN JANE", "CHEAP" TIMING LIGHT. NO NEED TO WASTE YOUR MONEY ON AN ADJUSTABLE, "HIGH SPEED" RICHARD PETTY MODEL!

THIS AIN'T SOMETHING YOU CAN JUST WING. IT'S SORTA GOTTA BE RIGHT

EVEN AFTER SETTING IT, WE CAN CHECK YOUR DISTRIBUTOR TO SEE IF "BOTH" ADVANCES ARE WORKING AS THEY SHOULD(MECHANICAL AND VACUUM"

I HAVE PICS, AND IF YOU ARE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND ME, AND SORTA STICK WITH THE PROGRAM.I MAY BE ABLE TO TALK YOU THRU THIS. IT AIN'T HARD!

ALSO LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE THUS FAR. RIGHT OR WRONG.I JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW TO GET THINGS BACK IF THEY HAVE BEEN MONKEYED/MOVED/ OR REMOVED

LAST "REAL" TUNE UP?

EXACTLY WHAT WAS REPLACED/ ADJUSTED?

DO YOU HAVE A REPAIR MANUAL?

IN YOUR REPAIR MANUAL IS A SECTION CALLED "SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE", IT OUTLINES THE TIMES/ MILEAGES THAT STUFF NEEDS TO BE DONE. ARE YOU CAUGHT UP?

IF YOU WILL---SPILL YOUR GUTS WITH WHAT IS/ HAS BEEN GOING ON--IN DETAIL!

PICS ARE ALWAYS NICE OF YOUR JEEP AND ENGINE COMPARTMENT. SORTA GIVES ME "THE FEEL" OF BEING RIGHT THERE!

YOUR TURN
