We had a pretty good weekend at the Moonshiners 4x4 swap meet in Puyallup. Picked up a new 12 circuit wiring harness made in the US of A by a company called Rebel Wiring over in Tennessee. Also found a new back seat, some very clean Buick V6 valve covers, and probably the best find of the weekend, a new adjustable roll-around shop stool for $5. Between that and building snowbike wheel kits I haven't spent much time working on the Jeep project. I did get the Spicer 18 assembled on Friday. It went together fairly easy with the help of my Jeep book. I also came to the conclusion that my magnetic base for my dial indicator is garbage. I reassembled the heads tonight, I kept it pretty mild with the porting work. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time to cc the heads.

Pure gold, 53HiHood!  Really like your "eyes" open to the stuff that matters.  This Jeep engine will be a gem...Nice book there on the bench!  I appreciate the kudos, glad the Spicer Model 18 build went well!

Appreciate the fact that you can go to a swap meet in your area. Here in Vermont there is no such thing. At least not a steady weekend thing. The only time you can pick up parts for your project car is when you have to hand over $15.00 to $30.00 per adult etc.. for a car show. There are "secret" club swaps from time to time, but I don't belong to any clubs yet, so they are members only, you just have to know a member to get to one without the annual fee.

Sounds like you had a good time. That's the best part isn't it?
