Won't be able to work the booth for the day.... pellet order came in, have to pickup 4 ton that morning, don't know how long it will take.  Plan to stop by when I'm done.
I have no idea what I'm doing... but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Thanks Dave. I'm going to bring a table. We couldn't get power last year, and luckily Tina and Bruce lent us their generator. So, we'll pass on the TV and DVD this year.

The front boggers came  in Wednesday,  Josh and I mounted them up that night and put them on.  They had 50 feet on them from the driveway to the trailer, then a couple of hundred yards across the field , then into the mud pit.

I ended up running propane setup on the BYS.  The fuel pump on the engine was shot and we couldn't come up with an electric one quick on Wednesday night.  I had it running on an Edelbrock 500 4BBL off a funnel into a fuel filter(Gravity feed).  I didn't have a timing light so I was just moving the distributor back and forth so it would take the fuel without stumbling.  It always idled like it was misfiring and I really thought I had knocked off a plug wire or broken a plug off while cleaning the layers of gaskets off the intake manifold. 

I found out there is an Edelbrock intake on the 351 and the bottom of the propane throttle body looks like a 4BBL square bore plate.  There was a vent on the oil filler cap and a PCV valve, so I took off the PCV valve and put another breather into the valve cover.  When I plugged the vacuum line on the throttle body that fed the PCV the engine pepped up and sounded better.

We took it up the road and Voila the tranny shifted all by itself ;-), so I'm guessing that the tranny was not getting enough vacuum to the modulator with the PCV hooked up.  And all this time I thought it had a manual valve body because you had to go through the gears by hand.  The engine is running the best it ever has since I've had it. 

While we working on it, we put a long tranny filler tube(like every other automatic) off of a TH400 because the one in there was only about 4 inches tall and I didn't want mud and getting into it in the pit.  Plus, it was a real pain to pull the dip stick without burning yourself in the headers to check the level.  Now I can add fluid from under the hood, not under the Jeep!!!!!
