With spring the new season of restoration began. We started by installing a new oil pan gasket. We began working our way through the build, reinstalling the last parts and checking torques, claps, hoses, and connections.

Phase III Restore

Assembly time! Using the hundreds of pictures, careful labeling, reading the manuals and most importantly consulting the internet, YouTube, and knowledgeable friends and vendors we put each component back together an on the Jeep. It was very gratifying to see each part back in place. Some parts had not been on the Jeep since it was on active duty!
