A Frame Off Restoration

Exhaust Leak Part II

Exhaust Lead
Fixed (we hope) a nagging exhaust leak at the connection of the tailpipe flange to exhaust manifold. Because we have attempted to fix this before with short term success, we’re afraid it may be caused by misalignment of the exhaust assembly. We really had to put a lot of force on the connection to get all the bolts to line up. We replaced the gasket and used Permatex Ultra Copper. Time will tell.

Fixed Small Fuel Leak

Fixed Fuel Leak
After installing a new fuel to carburetor line we had to fix a small fuel leak at the fuel pump.

Phase IV Maintenance

Maintenance is an ongoing activity. It’s the best part of the restoration project. It is gratifying to fix something and then take the jeep for a test drive. It only gets better from this point!
