    Cool - will give it a try clean and dry (fel pro website says the same thing). If it doesn't work, it will leak oil just like it has been doing and like everything else does, so no big deal. Its pretty easy to try again at the next oil change.

    Well finally got things back together and running again....
    While I had things apart on the bottom, I added an adpater so I can run a traditional screw on oil filter cartridge, and got the oil pan on.


    After fighting some distributor issues - the old Accel distributors a friends sent me just seem to not work anymore - I went with the traditional 60s-70's delco distributor with a Pertronix unit in it.


    Fit seems to work in the space (although the cap and rotor have to be removed to put-in or take the unit out....Hopefully with the pertronix unit it won't need much attention. ALso added a new internally resisted coil to simplify some of the wiring and firewall clutter....


    Then made it all legal...

    If you make it to Longmont, you've gone too far to find me. Looking forward to seeing the wagon!

    Dual MC set up with remote reservoir arrived today from R&P custom 4x4...Richards new R&P business (its in Oregon). Willwood MC with bracket to mount to frame for oem floor pedal set-up. Has remote reservoir that mounts on inner fender so it easy to check and fill fluid. Unlike the CJ the wagon doesn't have the inspection cover in the floor (and the sbc exhaust may also make access to the MC more difficult than the L6?), so this should make it easier to deal with. This MC works nicely with R&Ps disc set up with proper RPV - future project maybe, but for now I am keeping oem drums. Will hopefully start on this later this week...have DD maintenance tonight and skiing this weekend so....keep you posted.

    Old MC out without damaging or mangling anything....probably will have some brake line bending and new fittings etc to make....and will have to figure out a brake light switch.

    slow progress...mocked up the new mounting bracket from R&P - it uses the same 2 frame mounts the OEM MC uses the support mount on the pedal pivot - then fit the cylinder....now need to mock up the remote reservoirs which I intend to mount on the inner driver side fender?
