    Default The Jeep is burning!

    Well I was having charging issues and got that all cleared up, but today I had a engine fire!!

    I managed to put it out before it did major damage, but I lost a lot of tubing and wire casing.

    I could use some help re routing wires and hosing! I will feed you and get some beer!

    What all did you burn up, I have a bunch of left over stuff that I could throw in when I get that other stuff shipped out next week. Just let me know and if I have something you need I'll toss it in with the other stuff.

    @Sr. Beaver Thanks man! I think I am good though! I did the nutter bypass today and am rerouting the vac lines right now. Had to take a brake though! I should have it back on the road by tomorrow! Would be tonight, but I have had a few beers! I will take a some pictures of the finished product in a few.

    Now if anyone has a Motorcraft 2100 carb to swap for a Weber 32/36 That would be awesome! I am thinking about hitting the junkyard tomorrow and seeing if I can find one.

    I have a Holly on the CJ-5 not sure what model.

    Hind sight is 20/20, the Weber is a great carb if I could keep it tuned!

    The actual Nutter Bypass only took 15-20min removing all the useless vac tubes and rerouting lines took a couple hours with a mandatory beer brake thrown in. I should have it on the road by tomorrow afternoon!

    You can see the damage the fire did to the wires.

    Was it purely electrical or did some fuel leak onto the exhaust manifold?

    I had cleaned my carb with that AMS Oil foamer and I think some dripped over onto the gunk build up by my valve cover. That stuff is really flammable so I think it just hit its flash point and then was burning oily gunk as fuel. It looked worse then it was and I think I did more with the extinguisher then the flames did.

    I am heading out to finish rewrapping the wires here in a few.
