It looks like this weekend was lazy weekend for the members. Not a single post. I'm showing withdrawal symptoms! :evil:

Will be picking up another Patrol in the next couple of weeks. It's a 68 sold in 69. Strictly a parts vehicle. Owner said it ran 10 years ago when parked. It was a soft top . The b pillar and hoop over the front seat along with the tie bar to the middle of the windshield is still on vehicle. Rest of the top is gone. I will be scavenging parts for my Montana restoration. Will let members know what is available after I am done. Will post pics when I get it.

I'm working on swapping plugs, wires, and distributor in order to get it running more reliably. Sadly I have no pictures of anything at the moment. I'm going through everything looking for the size of the crankshaft bolt so I can manually turn the engine right now. So it's not been an entirely quiet weekend.

And running! Got everything swapped, timing is mostly correct (I don't have a timing light, so I had to estimate it), and she drove around the block for the first time! Next up is figuring out the carburetor situation as it idles higher with the choke in than with it out.

That's inspiration.
That is more than I can say about my 67. I do look at it in the garage every time I come and go and say, "I'm going to get back on it and get it running as soon as possible." Possible keeps eluding me! Well, it keeps eluding my desire to mechanic on anything right now!
Just replaced calipers, rotors, and pads on the front of the old 98 TJ couple weeks ago. Looks like it has an oil leak that needs attention.
Gotta replace ball joints on the JKUR here in the next few months. And contemplating a big brake kit on it to help it slow down with the 35" tires on it.
The 67 G60 is after that,,,hopefully.

No projects as of right now for my patrol, except to make some good room in the garage for winter storage. Don't feel like bolting the top back on any time soon with a rollbar project in the future....

Only other thing I hopefully will do this fall winter is a small write up on a front brake pad re-bonding project I want to try....

There's a couple of good parts in the engine compartment. How does that kind of damage even happen to a Patrol? :o

It was used as a tractor to pull firewood logs out of the hills for many years. I pulled the non factory Toyota pickup seat out of it just so i could see the interior better. It was rolled at least once i was told. The remaining damage came from years of abuse pulling logs. It ran 10 years ago when parked where i saw it. And yes there are some useable parts that will be used on my Montana Patrol restoration. The owner was happy to see parts if it put to use in the restoration.
