Howdy Mudders,

I bought this rig for a couple parts I needed for the frame off Restoration I am doing on my 75. The rest is a summer work project for my 13yr old. Trying to get him interested in helping dear old dad with my resto project. He also needs to learn how to use tools and feel the mighty power of a Milwaukee M18 1/2" Impact wrench...if there is a better tool to own I haven't found it. Okay, I digress. The body panels on this rig all have major rust except the front fenders which are in amazingly good shape IMHO. My son wants a 4 wheeler ASAP so if you want the whole enchilada it's yours for $4k. Otherwise I plan on market pricing everything similar to what i see on MUD (basically SOR x .60 ;))
The engine appears to be a 1.5F from what I can tell. It has 198k miles so I checked the compression of each cylinder to be as transparent as I can. Results are as follows: 1-85psi, 2-84, 3-87, 4-84, 5-91, 6-93. That's with a cheap China tester from Amazon and the fitting doesn't exactly seal up great. The engine turns over no problem but the tank is out so I don't know if it runs.
The fuel tank has major holes but if anyone needs the sender or top tank fittings let me know. Check the pics and the video on YouTube and let me know what you are interested in. The transmission cycles through the gears and the T-case shifts freely as well. I did check and they both actually had oil in them.

I might not be the fastest at getting the parts removed but I will do my best to accommodate as I fully understand the addiction we all have to these amazing trucks!

Steering wheel is in decent shape and ready for resto. Gauges are in solid shape as well.

Carb is OEM and surely ready for rebuild. Couple of the seat brackets are in good shape. PM me for specific photos and questions.

Thanks for letting me know. I'll go delete some stuff now so it works again. Do I need to upgrade and pay or what?
It used to be communicating more gort you more bandwidth. Haven't been here for a while though. My son tweaked my 40 into the back of a dump truck today, so I'll be here more for a while it looks like.....

I'm looking for the passenger seat bracket (the rail part that attaches to the bottom of the seat) that then connects to the floor risers.

Transmission hump cover looks to be in decent shape. Willing to part with it and if so, how much? Thanks-

Edit- it would be a replacement for a 78 model- anybody know if it’ll fit?

Will you be selling tub patches? Mostly interested in the back tub (wheel wells, quarter panels, rear bed)
