    If I'm not online, I am rest assured that I'm spending the rest of my time with my 18 mos. old son. Otherwise I am doing the chores. At times I'm out of the house. These are the things I do when I'm not online. What about you guys?

    Im rebuilding an old jago jeep and have done a few miles sourcing parts as they are hard to find these days, Bournmouth for an engine block , Bradford for a soft top and fittings , and various other places alway's miles away, It's getting a bit cold now so i've bought a space heater i can use in the garage and shed.
    That's the only pic i could upload others are too big a file, i will try and shrink a few down !

    Ordered a cylinder head off ebay as the one i had was not unleaded and to have unleaded seats fitted was expensive, and my local machine shop didnt have the machinery to do it, not much call for it anymore as most modern engines are unleaded, so i saw a later injection head for a good price, i followed the tracking each day as it came from latvia through lithuania, poland,germany, holland, to the uk, i think it must have traveled by horse and cart the speed it was going, it took about 9 days, it was ok apart from 2 broken exhaust studs.

    I spent a few of my younger years working on cars red, i rebuilt a few engines in the years lapping new valves in big end little end etc along with other aspects of the motor trade welding body work etc,

    You cant do much on the new cars now days i am running a E class Merc at the moment its just took me two weeks to get a new key for it, if i lift the bonnet i wouldn't know where to start,

    Keep us posted mate following your progress with interest pity your not closer i would be round giving you a hand :).

    Thats why i went with the 2.0 pinto engine instead of a duratec or zetec, no ecu or megasquirt to mess with, got an electronic distributor to do away with points , so simple and reliable hopefuly, probably heavier on the fuel though than the newer engines, im thinking of fitting an lpg kit but not much room for an extra tank in a jeep, yes shame you dont live nearer, i was working on the head today lapping in the valves coincedentally , bit slow going doing stuff with the cold and dark evenings, kills enthusiasm, i do at least something every day on it to keep it going.
