    I'd ask you to step away from the welder, but it might do the world some good if you clamp the ground electrode to your big toe, put the MIG handle to your temple and pull the trigger.

    congratulations on the new toy!
    Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

    You have an AMC corporate 20 rear end, Dana 20 t-case. T-18 trans, Dana 30 front axle. It definitely does look like a Ford block so 302 sounds right.
    Probably swapped to a Ford engine because the T-18 would have the same bolt pattern as the Ford bellhousing.

    Ah CJ "the one and only" lol.

    Good luck with it

    Guess im the only one into 'em. I would colour match the inner part of the wheel to the body and polish the front face of the 'spokes'.


    So whats is the plan for it, drive it as is or start a build?

    Grab some PB Blaster, stuff works great. I think they sell it at crappy now. Your grinder is also your best tool in your box. After fighting many bolts only to grind them off after a 1/2 hour fighting.

    Interco is a tire company.

    So she's running! nice. Can't wait to hear mine run again.
