    How about not using all the abbreviations? I'm a veteran with a box full of medals, and orders for others that I am allowed to purchase on my own if I want to add them to the box. I know what the CIB and CAB are, but I've never heard of EFMB, ARTB, or RI. How about using English?
  2. Legally, builders can't "certify" plans. Any building that is on a residential lot and that will be accessory to a one- or two-family residence is constructed under the International Residential Code, not the International Building Code (which is for everything else). I went through this recently with a building inspector friend who had a case where a woman was going to build an 80' x 200' riding arena and she claimed it was under the Residential Code. What kicked it over to the Building Code was that she was running a commercial horse breeding operation and riding school out of the property.
  3. The Renix models also have two diagnostic connectors on the passenger side of the engine bay, behind the shock tower. One of the connections in one of those connectors is a tach signal. If you have (or can borrow) an idle tach or an aftermarket tach, you can test with that to see if the tach signal is making it as far as the diagnostic port. If you haven't already done so, download the Renix electrical manual. You'll find full information on those two diagnostic connectors in that.
  4. How do you have blueprints "certified"? Who certifies them? And why do they need to be certified at all? This is next to your house, right? So it gets built under the Residential Code, and doesn't need to be drawn, signed, or sealed by an architect or an engineer.

    It's not too soon to start. Start doing pushups, pullups, and running IMMEDIATELY. I played multiple sports through college, and I thought I was in good shape when I enlisted. I was wrong.
  6. Sounds right. Pete's comment about the booster may be the answer.
  7. No, I want to know exactly how the OP (jeepmjga) bled his system. One person or two people? Suction bleeder? Pressure bleeder? Step-by-step procedure. If the brakes have been bled and there isn't a good peddle, something's wrong -- and it's usually in the way the brakes were bled.
  8. Before you burn up any more irreplaceable tachometers, have you figured out why the one you had burned up?
  9. Correct. And don't forget there was a "Tow Package," which included the hitch and wiring; and there was the "Tow Prep Package," which was the heavy duty cooling system and tranny cooler, but no hitch or trailer wiring.
  10. The 4th digit for the AMC years is the engine type. I don't have a '91 or '92 FSM so I can't offer any wisdom for the HO years of the MJ, but I do have a '94 Jeep FSM. 1 - Country of manufacture (1=U.S.) 2 - Company make (J = Jeep) 3 - Vehicle Type 4 - GVWR 5 - Line (i.e. Cherokee 2WD, Cherokee 4WD, Wrangler) 6 - Series (i.e. Trim Level) 7 - Body 8 - Engine 9 - Check digit 10 - Model year 11 - Plant of manufacture 12 thru 17 - Serial number
  11. A VIN digit for the tow package? I don't think so. It's on the build sheet, of course, but not in the VIN. VIN explanation from my 1988 Comanche FSM: 1 - Country of manufacture 2 - Company make (J = Jeep) 3 - Type (T = Truck) 4 - Engine type 5 - Trannsmission 6 & 7 - Series 8 - Trim package 9 - Check digit 10 - Model year 11 - Plant of manufacture 12 thru 17 - Serial number
