My Build: Name and Progress Update

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

gus_frontNAME NEWS:  The name Gus has been retired in favor of Lost Biscuit.

For two years I’ve called my project Gus.  It all started with a hunk of flattie junk I towed home more than two years ago.  As you can see from the pic to the right, the grille is rough and full of personality.  It just looked like a Gus.

Over the following months I traded parts and pieces away until I finally gave away the last piece, the grille, to Mitch because I had decided against using the grille.  However, the name continued to stick.

During the past month, I was playing some xBox online with my sons, specifically Call of Duty World at War (It’s a kick to play).  Karson couldn’t find a username he wanted so he just picked two random words and came up with FoundedBiscuit.  His brother, Colter, wanted his own handle and came up with LostBiscuit.  During the summer we became Team Biscuit.

The first time I heard it, I told them I thought that Lost Biscuit would be a great Jeep name.  After thinking it over and asking them a couple day ago, we agreed that Gus should be renamed Lost Biscuit.  Given that I’m a former chef who still loves to cook, having a food as part of the name is entirely appropriate.

PROGRESS

Drove Down the Street: Today marks the first day I drove Biscuit out of the garage and down the street, very slowly.  The first thing I discovered is that power brakes work really well.  I’m thrilled with them so far.  The th350 also feels great — I thought there’d be a little lag in drive like I feel in some vehicles with an automatic, but as soon as I tap the gas at all the tranny bites and moves the jeep forward.  The lack of tranny noise, especially in low range, is nice compared to the manual trannies that I have experienced (with the exception of the ford toploader dad used to have).

Brake Lights Fixed: I got the brake lights fixed; the lights work when the pedal is depressed now (as opposed to staying on when it wasn’t depressed).  I used a brake pedal switch and assembly from a late 80s cherokee that had 6 wires coming out of it.  I mistakenly wired the two wires that were ‘on’ when the brake wasn’t depressed.  I just had to hunt for the two that were ‘on’ when the brake was depressed.

Power Steering Fluid Faux Pas: I learned today that if you accidently overfill the power steering fluid that it will pressurize and shoot out a tiny little hole in the cap, bounce off the ceiling in your garage, and shower stuff below.  oops!!!  Lesson learned.  Truly, it was an honest mistake.  I had taken off the cap to get out any remaining air and the fluid looked low.  So I filled it up a little farther, put on the cap, shut off the engine and SURPRISE — a stream of fluid shot out the cap.

Some of the remaining fixes:

1.  Fix turn signals- these don’t work at all
2. Fix small leak in brake fluid “T” at the front
3.  Fix driver’s side head light wiring (something is crossed)
4.  Build pattern for seat covers that I can send Jim (Thanks Jim!)
5.  THE BIGGIE:  Buy tubing for rollcage and build Cage (Steve, if I get Bisquit up there, can you still help me with this?)
6.  Get glass and cowl seal for windshield.
7.  Get Steering Wheel wrap and quick turn knob for steering wheel

1978 Prototype Jeep Jr. Reynoldsburg, Oh

• CATEGORIES: toys

Here’s a very unusual Go-Kart/Toy/Lawn mower (strange combo) on Ebay for $9,995 that was spotted by a reader.  I did a quick search to see if I could find the museum that houses the other one of these prototypes, but couldn’t find it.  I have no idea what this is worth or whether this is really what the seller says it is.

“For sale is a unique Jeep Jr. built by wheel horse for the Jeep company in 1978. Only three were ever made. One is on display in a museum, one is destroyed, and one is sitting in my garage. The Jeep Jr. runs and drives and has been well maintained over the past thirty years. This Jeep is truly a collectors item. This jeep jr was produced as a prototype in 1978 for American motors and is an actual lawn mower. The jeep goes pretty fast up to 25 mph, and even faster if set up right. Perfect for car collector. Can be driven on street or grass….”

1964 CJ-3B Denver, Co $1500 OD included

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

Here’s what looks like a very good price on a CJ-3B that includes an Overdrive.

“This is my old Jeep CJ3B. I’m the second owner, and I purchased it in 1998 or so.
Its factory PTO, winch, and overdrive. The winch has a broken foot which I was going to repair, but I figured I’d let the buyer do it (I can still do it if ya want!)
The jeep has a straight 6 conversion engine from the 70s. Its a 232. It runs good, but I have no idea what the mileage is on it. Its factory tranny (3 speed) and transfer case (twin stick). Lots of tread left on the tires, but they are several years old. BFgoodrich 33×9.50×15 on chrome rims. The jeep has a Dana 44 rear and a dana 25 or 27 front (closed knuckle). 5.38 gears. I’ve got another d44 for the jeep that has a warn full floater conversion on it and a lock-right in it. It works great….. The jeep is $1500 obo. ”

1950 CJ-3A Oklahoma City, Ok $2800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

1950_cj3a_oklahomacityHere’s a CJ-3A that still has the 6 volt system.  This might be a good find if you want to restore a CJ-3A without too much work.

“This is a very nice original jeep. (very rare). Most have been modified heavily. The only thing modified are seat belts, roll bar, lockout front hubs, and of course wheels and tires. The original engine, transmission and transfer case are still under the hood! It is still 6 volt with a new battery. I had the clutch replaced a few months ago and the mechanic didn’t do it right so I haven’t driven it since then. I knew I should have done it myself!!! It wasn’t aligned properly so it has a vibration. I haven’t had the time to fix it myself and I don’t trust anyone to do it for me. It needs a new accelerator pedal linkage and he’s ready for all of the fun you can handle … Anyway thanks for shopping by and you can call or text me at my cell# 214-616-9911 (yes I do live in OKC, just haven’t changed my cell phone). I just don’t have the time to keep Willy up and would like to see him get a new good home.”
