  1. Hahah that’s great! A young entrepreneur! Sounds like he is well on his way! Those tires are sure to keep him busy! 😃
  2. Hey Moses! Awesome video and a really cool tool you have there! I have spent my share of time wrestling tires! Fortunately it was when I was younger and less wise! Hahaha now I can look back and say I have paid my dues! Tires are a lot of work! It looks like you lost some serious fluids making that video! That tool should be sold with a cooler of ice cold beverages! thanks for sharing! Mike
  3. Thanks! Good work space definitely helps! It’s in the 90s here now and I am not spending as much time in the shop as I would like! I have me engine block crank and pistons back from the machine shop and waiting for the heads. I have a few more parts to buy before I start the engine rebuild! plus an adapter and clutch to purchase! Mike
  4. I realize this thread is a few years old but I have read through it several times gaining insight from the good pics and dialogue! Thanks guys mike
  5. For sure! That girl rarely leaves my side if I’m not at work. Hunting, fishing, yard work and working in the shop! She’s my partner in crime!
  6. While performing a root cause analysis on the broken bolts in my timing cover I believe I have discovered the root cause! Hahahahaha. My daughter Capri may have been responsible!
  7. I also pulled the locking hubs apart, cleaned inspected and lubed them before reassembling them. All pieces looked to be in good shape and the hubs now turn freely in and out.
  8. I may have jumped the gun on the hubs and drums here. After researching what should be on the 3b, measuring the two hubs comparing them I decided to order a new drum and drill tap holes in the one hub to facilitate the drum? many thoughts? thanks, Mike
  9. Some parts arrived today so I changed gears from engine to front axle. Both hubs had play in the wheel bearings. When I took it apart I found that they were not set with a reasonable amount of preload or they backed off over time. to my surprise I found some good parts behind the drums! That was a plus. the bell crank was very sloppy, tie rod ends worn out and the passenger side had been welded. I rebuilt the bell rank with new parts and assembled the tie rods. New tie rods and new ends. I didn’t assemble it on the Jeep yet. Still trying to decide if I should open up the closed knuckl
  10. Ahhhh chasing the elusive steelhead! One of the rivers I grew up on had a very strong winter run of 100% native steelhead. When I was younger you could fish it for these natives but now it is closed for steelhead. The rivers out on the peninsula still generate very strong steelhead runs although most of them are hatchery fish now. You have been a very busy guy and sounds like in addition to your career you have given back to the community in a significant way. I was born in Oceanside CA which is in Orange county and than we moved to WA state in 1975. Looking back on my career in ma
  11. Rear crossmember/bumper showed up today so I hung it loosely with a couple carriage bolts I had in the garage from building a utility trailer.

  13. Moses it is a small world after all. I do love and miss the Pacific Northwest but middle Georgia is where my career has taken me for the time being. I have a sister in Eugene and a brother in Florence OR out on the coast. You have had an amazing career and sounds like there is more in store for you with the video projects. It is a great sense of accomplishment to know that the equipment you maintain is out there rolling up and down the road every day. I worked with some folks back in WA that had worked for Pope in OR many years back. I have been in the sawmills now for 20 years. the firs
