but it was definately an exciting day. got a new battery, some oil, ordered a new voltage regulator and cleaned my air filter. poured a little gas in the carb and keyed her over. coughed like she wanted to start. gave her another turn and she stumbled and rumbled to life! definately exciting! let her idle and warm up a little. the gas is not really the best gas, it's been sitting for almost a year... i knew she wouldn't drive, cause of the broken diffs and some problems. but put her in gear and 4wd... and checked the drivelines. to verify that they were all turning and it was a problem with the diffs.... all three turning away. so sunday i'm cracking open the diffs and checking what's wrong with each one. order some parts and get her back on the trail.
my goal is mid april or so to get her running and on the trail again. with luck!! depending on how much time i can get away from work.
