    You sure have one lucky kid. Sounds like his Pops is teaching him right. Make sure he gets under that hood and learns everything along the way.

    He's my second son to earn it. He is a self starter and will be going places... Just not very fast in this old rig

    Torn apart today with all parts ready to install.
    Son at my side and doing a lot of it.

    Who knows when I'll be able to put it back together

    New water pump in and seems to have fixed the overheating problem.

    Much improved but still gets warm on long slow climbs. Used to overheat super fast so I know it helped.
    Any advice? Thinking I'll put dual electric fans with a shroud.
    Right now it has a 850cfm fan. I found a shroud that will fit two 1000cfm fans

    Use a laser thermometer and see if you have and abnormal temps in the rad core, like a possible blockage.

    Also with the laser confirm your actual engine temp to make sure gauge is reading accurate.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
