Lol!

We went with Lucas Classic tires for our NDTs. They were the cheapest at the time. Pays to shop around, sometimes its Lucas, sometimes its Universal TIre. Both are cheaper than Coker tire.

Still looks like a lot of fun, and as it is snowing again, "still" here, I seem to be getting the jeep bug to go out and start er up and take a spin...... :D

We'll see....

As winter still drags on here, I'm still adding "goodies" to the jeep, on/off plate and one of the wiper arms. Can't wait for spring to get here,so ready for some fun road trips!!!!! Bruce PS, No I didn't leave the switch on, it was running when I took picture!!!

The NDCC Tires will perform fine in the snow when the air pressure is reduced to 15 PSI.

Just a quick question, how hard is it to get the pump out and back in without taking off the fender or other pieces? I was thinking of taking the pump out for a rebuild on my wife's 61 CJ5 but not sure on how easy its going to come out with everything in the way.

Anyway, great job, and I could not agree more, Come on Summer!!!!!

A 1/4" Drive Socket Set makes changing Jeep Fuel Pumps much easier.

Good to know!!

Only worry I have I guess, is getting it to line up under the cam?? on re-assembly so that when I tighten up the bolts again, everything will work as it should. I was thinking if I took the fender off, I could see things a bit better.

Thanks for the info, it is appreciated!!
:)

The Rocker Arm rides on the surface of the cam and does not go under the camshaft lobe. Do not atempt to install the pump without the Spacer.

Again, good to know!!

My hope is that as long as I don't move the jeep after taking out the pump, that it should go back in as easily as it comes out. Nothing moved, nothing can get in the way....I'm going to send out the pump for a professional rebuild.
Then and Now fuel pump rebuilders come highly recommended.
