  1. No, this was years ago. I bought it as a rusted out parts truck from the original owner who never did anything but drive it.
  2. I had an 88 chief, metric tone, tow package, auto 4x4 with np242 with buckets and lighted Lund, and 3.73s with trac-lock. All on original order sheet from dealership. but, that’s a unicorn. an 84-85 xj with carb’d 2.5 and auto would be the most likely source for 3.73s
  3. Ax15 or nv3550 with mid 90s Dakota 4 cylinder bellhousing. but, supercharger will put the throttle body inside the firewall
  4. Nope, never did a 3.4. Went straight to Buick 3800. the Buick 3800 is a 90 degree engine with a 60 degree bellhousing, but starter located on the drivers side. the ax15 and nv3550 will hook to it with a mid 90s dodge Dakota 4 cylinder bellhousing. Use a flywheel for a 3800 camaro as well as the clutch. Shave 5/16” off the pivot mount for the throw out plate, 5/16” off the slave push rod, and clarance throw out plate on back side as required to clear the bearing shaft (aka front input cover). custom engine mounts needed, custom headers needed, swap to 4.0 hood, front crossmember, core support required. Use 4.0 radiator with dual electric fans. painless DOES make a wiring harness. a VATS bypass will be needed for the sentry key to make it run. best donors are 95+ camaro and firebird with the series 2.

    Lol, I don’t think so...and thankfully yes. I have this one, a classic 78, a 3 drawer cart, a rolling table, and a very nice rolling bench that I built with two vices. And that’s just at work 🤣. Worse, they’re all full. Worse than that, people think they don’t have to buy tools because I have them all. They don’t seem to get that I bought them so that I’d have them when I need them 🙄🤷🏻‍♂️

    Thanks! Magnetic rails throughout the box other than the 1/4” snap on sets. Using those for the crows feet on the front inner face, too.

    It’s very simple. every American deserves the ability to defend themselves from an unjust government. A fully automatic weapon barely scratches the surface of what would be needed to accomplish this. thankfully, our military defenders would turn on the government before we’d ever need to.

    🙄😬😉 I may have gone overboard at work...
  9. Early to mid 90s dodge Dakota 4 cylinder 5 speed ax15 bellhousing. had to cut out drivers side for starter hump then weld in a piece to make up the difference. used the canary clutch, flywheel, pressure plate with the Dakota throw out plate and bearing. Shaved the pivot ball housing down 3/8”-5/8” and clearances the back of the throw out plate the same. used external slave ax15 xj master and slave from a 93-96, shortened push rod as necessary to release the clutch. That required a H.O. Pedal assembly swap and I did a dual diaphragm brake booster out of the donor for the pedal assembly.
  10. That’s for a soccer mom in an emergency in the suburbs of a state that doesn’t get snow. Montana? She needs a full fledged snow plow with angling and lift. Must be electric over hydraulic. Western, Boss, SnoWay. SnoWay would be my recommendation for a rookie. Has down pressure for scraping.
  11. Jeff, the metal on the stat were shavings from drilling out the bleeder. i had to do that once, and ended up having to go back in a few weeks later to replace the stuck open thermostat
  12. That was a mid continent vs getrag issue I imagine. Same issues as the mini coopers had...same trans in same year ranges
  13. ...I’ve heard of this happening, and routinely run mine for 5 minutes or so while doing the light disassembly to get to the coils. only pull plugs with engine at operating temp when the plugs are recessed. as far as removal of threaded section, put out the rest of the plugs in, disconnect the injector for that cylinder, drop in the rest of the coils, and run it until warm. Then try the extractor
