    You'll need to get a proper power steering pulley tool, it removes and installs the pulley, see if you can rent one from crappy tire or if PA has one. It's the only way to remove and install the pulley on that style of pump. It works slick and it'll take about 15 minutes to R&R the pulley.

    Just keep in mind that the internal threads on the old ps pump need to be clean enought to thread a bolt into it.

    for the pitman arm i have done lots of stuck pitman arms. just cut round spot about 1/4 turn from the arm part on both sides with a little 3 inch cut off tool, if you go into the shaft a tiny bit its ok it wont hurt anything. then just pull it off with the puller if it doesn't come off easy

    A tale of two jeeps - the outlaw

    Thanks for the advice guys!

    I didn't know the PS pulley was press on, I saw it had a hex opening at the end of the shaft and I could even see the threads, it was covered in so much gunk it looked like a bolt. I picked up a puller/installer from PA and had it done in no time.

    Cutting the pitman arm - that's genius!! I have been pulling, lubing, heating, tapping with a 3lb sledge and I think it's moved about 1/32" but still on there tighter than hobo stink. I feel like a tard that I didn't think of it.

    I got out to the shop for a little tonight and was able to get the rear drive shaft torn apart and rebuilt with new joints.



    I installed it and thought the angle was pretty awesome, the springs have a 2* shim and I think making shorter rear shackles did the trick, should be smooth sailing.

    Then I had a fawk it moment.. I went to work out my new rear shocks... And some dumbass (me) put the offset for the muffler on the passenger side, so there was the turndown about 1" from the shock. Probably would have rode fine but flexed out it would contact for sure... So I had to pull out the cat/muffler, cut all of my tacks and then flip the muffler and re-weld the turndown. The little nipple thingy for the cat now points down Instead of up.. But I don't think that matters. Another learning experience that will be invaluable for the next project.

    Still gunning for May 24 of this year.

    I just have:

    Remove old and install new pitman arm
    Fuel pump line
    Install fuel filler and tank lines
    All of the lights (head, tail, turn) to wire up
    Rear brakes
    Shift cable
    Sand/paint/install windshield
    Paint and install fenders
    Paint and install rock rails
    Weld lower seatbelt bungs into roll bar and install rollbar
    Tunes
    Safety
    Drive the ever loving snot out of it

    So it's getting there, a couple good weekends jamming on it and I should be good to go.

    A tale of two jeeps - the outlaw

    Thanks again H3lzSn1p3r for the advice, I cut a slot in the pitman arm right at the front, came off in 5 min, including the cutting- I feel like a twat waffle for not thinking of that in the first place



    New drag link angle, should be t!ts

    I also finished up the fuel line at the front going from the line from the tank under the motor and into the pump. Didn't snag and pics of that tho.

    I also started mocking up the fuel filler.. Stupid jeep.. I measured the ports on the tank and bought some fancy fuel hose that was 1.25" and 1" but the bloody filler neck is 3/4 and 1... So the line won't work. Guess I'll be hitting quadratec for some OEM replacements

    A tale of two jeeps - the outlaw

    Got out for a couple hours today. Got my rear shocks mounted thanks to some sweet tabs from TMR.





    I ended up going with some Rancho shocks (had to paint them black to match the front), 9500's and they are actually front shocks from. 2000 S10 4x4 with the ZR1 package. 10" compressed, 18" extended. At ride height they are around 13" so right in the sweet spot. Should work mint.

    I also have half of the rear brakes done... Except when I opened the box o' parts from Rock Auto I noticed I had 2 driver side adjustment lever kits... (FAWK!), so I need to pick up a passenger one. I also painted the drums to hopefully prevent the rust.



    Lastly, I got around to wrapping up my shift linkage and installing my 'console' and shift knob. It's a little clunky.. But it'll do the trick for now until I come up with something else.



    Getting there... I'll try and get the adjustment kit for the brakes tomorrow and wrap those up. I also ordered new fuel filler lines from Quadratec, they should be here Tuesday so I can finish up the fuel system... Then I may actually be able to move this pig under its own power!!

    That's the plan - I'm hoping it will be out for the inaugural rip around the block next weekend... sans roll bar, seatbelts, windshield, fenders... etc...

    At this point, here's the to-do list:

    Finish up brakes/bleed brakes
    Install fuel filler
    Address timing so it runs for more than 5 minutes
    Install/wire all the lights (parking, tail, head)
    Weld new seat belt bungs in roll bar
    Weld rear spreader bar into roll bar (mount the wakeboard speakers)
    TUNES
    Install roll bar/seatbelts
    Sand and paint windshield, hood, fenders, roll bar
    Install windshield
    Install new ujoints in front shaft/install front shaft

    ...and I think that's really it to at least get it road worthy then I have the rock rails to finish up and install and the LED light bar to build a mount for and install, and then figure out what I'm doing for a tailgate.. but that can come later.

    Come hell or high water.. it'll be ready for June.

    Unfortunately I don't have any pictures or video to accompany this post... but.. IT WORKS!!!!!!

    I started it last night and played around with the mixture screws on the carb until it sounded nice and would run beauty at idle, then I played with the dizzy until it ran smooth and would handle a crack of the throttle nicely, locked it all down and took it out for a rip around the block.

    FAWK YEA!!! apparently a rear locker and wet pavement are a beauty combination for burnouts on 33's

    Now... putting it back together.

    A tale of two jeeps - the outlaw

    Got out for a bit tonight to tackle some wiring and wrap up the cooling system.

    My stock rad overflow wasn't going to work... So I had to improvise. I was doing some work on my sump pump on the weekend, and it came to me.

    ABS pipe baby!!



    Step 1, install Home Depot 'T' bracket, I ended up putting some 3/4" hose on the vertical t parts to add some cushion to the pipe, then cut about 16" of 2" pipe, add cap on one end, add clean out on the other, drill a vent hole, drill a hole for the overflow hose, add some hose clamps and boom - custom rad overflow for less than $20

    That's a cool idea for the overflow I would add some clear tubing for a level site if it was mine.

    Nice idea on the ABS pipe, but just be warned that ABS is only good for 180 degrees with no pressure and 100 degrees with pressure (that's in F). Just watch for leaks and cracking, as an overflow it might work though.

    I was talking to a plumber buddy who said the same thing - he's going to snag me all of the bits I need in CPVC so I can rebuild it and not have to worry about the temps. Last night it seemed to be cool to the touch.. so we'll keep an eye on it and see how it fairs.

    Go to the dollar store and buy a cheap aluminum water bottle neck threads are often let 3/4, JB weld in the others you need or use bulk head fitting and you'll have a cheap aluminum overflow bottle.

    A tale of two jeeps - the outlaw

    Thanks guys, down the road I'll definitely look into that, way cooler than ABS. My wife has a pink and purple poka dotted bottle that would be just the ticket!

    Well, it's coming!

    Got the roll bar painted



    As well as the windshield and hood, my wife was so against keeping the sexy mural on the hood she offered to sand it for me haha



    Starting to wish I didn't go with bright orange shock boots...

    Also got the first coat of etching primer on the fenders tonight, they'll be going hammered black to match the grill.



    So now... Time to get back to the wiring... I have no brake lights or marker lights... And I have no idea why. So that should be a blast to figure out.

    Find those gremlins, add some clearance lights on the front and a license plate light and this puppy will be ready for a safety!!

    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.
