I got my jeep back on the road.  ;D

It has retrofitted TBI from 4.3 Chevy while the engine is AMC 258. Uses inline electrical pump on the frame,  i had two and apparently both were bad, they would buzz to prIme alright but no fuel pressure at the TBI.

Got new Walbro GSL 395 and all is well.  My daily driver since 1998 :)

Now about the deer season :)

I just got my JEEP project back from the tranny shop where I had the guys change all 4 oils underneath and add the MGC and other BG stuff to the auto 4-speed. Needs a new windshield, steering shaft, front end drag link and steering arm, and brake booster, all sitting int my garage.
Then, to get ready for taking the camper into the hills soon, and remembering we are having increased bear troubles in my favorite areas, thought about an upgrade 45 ACP for those long walks in the woods: and a vintage one just popped up! So now my motorhome will have its own protection handy when we use it. :D

I turned the clock back on my new to me Toyota Matrix.

I just picked up a Sig P220 45 ACP. Still waiting for delivery though, hopefully sometime next week.

What? You didn't buy a new gun too Michel? What are you, French? ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

Pulled the seats out of my '70 Corvette.   

Will be replacing the cheap aftermarket seat covers with quality 100% leather.

Pretty dirty under there, will be cleaning that up before reinstallation.

 Dang Bear, that motor might find the weak link in the driveline.

The previous unit sorted all that out Don.
Unfortunately it broke a crank prematurely.
I'm hoping this one will see me out.

Cheers,

So I'm betting you'll be towing the palatial caravan down to the Island for the classic Brian? Fingers crossed, I'll be there next year. ;D

That's the plan Uncle Tez.
We bolted all the ancillaries on this arvo.
Just waiting on new oil, transmission coolers and engine mounts.
Then we'll slot her in. :)

Started dismantling the rear end of my GL1500 to change out the tyre. So far I've got the body panels off. Baaaastard of a job. Tomorrow I'll try and get the wheel out. The current tyre is almost like new but in has a manufacture date of 0708 - over 11 years old. The front will be done later. It's dated 0808.

PFT, you worry too much Krusty, the tyres on my 2007 Triumph Rocket III are the originals. The bike was built on the 8th of July, but the Tyres may be much older, (I only remember the build date because my brother ordered it with a build date as close to his 50th birthday 7/7/2007 and it was built on my wife's 46th birthday 8/7/2007) and with around 13000 Km on the ODO aren't in the most roadworthy of shape, but I figure that if I put some heat into them and try not to keep the speed below the imperial "Ton" (@4000 RPM) it'll be safe enough for a few more runs before I have to fork out for new ones? Geez, they're still full of English air! ;D
