Lu came up to help me get the hard top on the goat this am. That little top either got a lot heavier sitting in the shed the last 2 years or he and I are getting old and weak.

Then we turned our attention to the ole Milk Jug to install the @lcwizard 4Plus FJ60 flip kit.

As always, a beautiful product. This actually moved his shocks up a bit as well. The Foam Cell Pro were at the end of the droop in stock position. This makes the geometry all better too. Clean Clean look.

We also added some ARB vent hoses to the diffs

Cowboy made sure we did not slack too much. Before he left Lou helped me move the 💩80 back into the shop so I can get the WooPow Mosley Motors head installed next week

damn oL MilkJug started running poorly on Tuesday afternoon. It was mainly an idle issue. Wouldn’t stay running until warmed without the choke on, or throttle applied. After it would reach a decent temp, it would lope and have a rough idle. I did a little searching and realized that was a waste.

i have the sniper and desmog kit on hand, so why not jump in. I have a DUI distributor on order, but it looks like it will be the 1st week in November until it ships.

So, i dove in while i had an hour to piddle yesterday afternoon.....i was able to remove the main actuator/smog solenoid rack in one piece. Even the bolts in the manifold came loose easily and for that, i am grateful.

Only have a couple of pics right now, because i have been tied up at work (for all the wrong reasons) most days and nights. Will piddle on it this sunday when i have time.

damn all this vacuum line junk. Reminds me of the “rats nest” under the UIM on my RX-7‘s. 11 solenoids and 68 different vacuum lines for the sequential turbo set.....this is essentially the same. Block off, idler, plugs, and voila.......mo power, leas BS.....

We left it with all the hard stuff done and waiting on a fuel pump. Throttle cable run. Wiring figured out. This went very smooth. I’m thinking with the pre work Lou did and what’s left this will be about a 10 hour job wothout going all into the the intake and exhaust. Gonna be sweet.

Lou had the Milk Jug 85% ready this am.

I piddles with some small items while he installed the electric pump and filters.

(Photo was taken before he zipped all the filters up)
We got it all done in a couple of hours and it fired up perfectly.

We ended up bumping the timing to 11* and then adjusting the IAC and in about 15
minutes we had all the gaskets burned in and took it for a ride. Runs perfect.

We used the clamp on O2 and the gasket smokes until it’s cured

This is a whole different truck now. Has more power than before and runs stronger up hill on the interstate and under full throttle.

The engine sounds smoother to me on the interstate as well. The install is easier with help. Thanks @wngrog as usual. The hardest part is removing all the old smog stuff. Sniper 2BBL is straight forward just like the 4BBL one i put on the goblin.

the one turn crank was super awesome this am when taking my boy to school. Would have taken some choke and priming to get going with the carb.

next will be the (80) steering box and new pump because the both leak faster than Hunter Biden sex tapes.....

Love those wheels. Too much blue in them, though. I know it would be wrong to rattle can those beauties...but a bit darker grey (oddball80) would be perfect.

Piddling around this am, I decided to toss on my Quality Power one wire 140 amp alternator this am. It came with a supplied “J” bracket to fit over the OEM mount. Simple, right? Just one wire from the alternator to the battery. Seems legit.

I loosely fitted the brackets the way they are shown to go, as well as having ref’d the one install I’d seen here on mud.

it came with some extra flat washers to shim it with, and when I referenced the other install again, didn’t look like it used any.

I knew immediately that it wasn’t lining up, but I tightened it down anyway to get a reference as to how much I would need to shim it.Looks like 1”. Ooof. Gonna have to revisit that.

I then noticed that the belt didn’t fit in the pulley groove at all. It would probably work, but I don’t roll like that. So, I’ll have to revisit that as well.

so. I punted on that project like some bad carnitas and slapped the OE one back on.

After that I decided to pop in the new horn contact. Mine has only been working when the wheel was in one specific position.

I popped off the horn cover & the column cover and removed the steering wheel.

While I was in there, I cleaned up most of the old dust and crap that had built up since ‘86.

The horn contact is a brass push pin w/ contact head & a spring with a very small clip, and the contact wire that slips over the end. You can definitely tell it’s worn comparing it to the new on.

The clip can be seen from overhead, on the top of the column, if you depress it. after 10 min trying to get the clip with some small tip needle nose pliers and a pick [mind you I can’t see anything that small up close] I realized 4 more screws would allow me to remove the multi switch plate.

From there it only took me about 5 min.
Thankfully I didn’t lose the original clip, as a slip of the pliers and the new one was lost in the abyss of the driveway aggregate.

I popped it all back together and it works like a charm.
