Chip, I'm going to come to your house, pretend to be your friend and then steal that Champion spark plug machine! :evil: I had one of those in my classroom when I started teaching in 1980. I don't know what happened to it, but it was a great machine! I did manage to score an old Sun analyzer similar to the one I used when I was teaching. Love the old school tools.
I start what I finish.

Nice looking build. I picked up a 74 Cherokee this fall that will be getting some work done. Rockers are gone along with the bottoms of the rear quarter panels and the brakes need fixed but it ran and drove for 3 months before I parked it for the winter. Only paid $1000 so I'm happy with it so far. Also have a 75 J20 and a 74 J10 that's my parts donor. Would attach a pic but my file sizes are to big.

Figured out the attachment thing, kind of anyways. This is my newest Jeep. Anyone know what the limit is on picture file sizes?

Very interested in this - not that I'm going EFI any time soon but interested just the same!

By the way, do you recall who makes those valve covers bolts you're using? I like 'em.

The Holley Sniper is an all in one unit. The ECU is attached to the throttle body. There is still wiring but no box to remotely attach. O2 Sensor, relay for fuel pump, and a fuel pump and some 3/8" fuel line and that is all.

I pulled the old one out by hand. This one is a lot lighter!

Sorry about the slow response, don't get much time to get on here. Yes, 2016 was our first year, then again in 17, plan to make it again this year.
