How's it Going Den!!??
« on: December 06, 2015, 01:46:25 PM »
Long time no see! Hope everyone is still doing good! Been awhile since I've poked my head in. Penny is still broken, but I hope to start working on it this winter. I think I'll just end up taking the engine out and solving this oil delivery issue. While it's out I might as well do a rebuild too...but we'll see how that goes. I've also had thoughts of just being a running beat up XJ and swapping everything I need to just go EFI. So many options I can't decide. Right now my poor SX/4 is being used as storage as we live in a half a trailer and have no outdoor storage. Recently had a '93 Econoline 150 given to me and have a buddy using about half of it to store his stuff through the winter. Plan on getting all the extra stuff out of Penny and putting it in the van. It's a start! Internet usage is limited since moving to the desert. So not sure when I'll be back. But thought I'd say hi! I'll try to show me head a little more often.

Howdy! The Econoline was moved to my trailer and most of the non-Eagle related things have now been moved out of Penny and into the van. One of the boat mechanics said he'd help me pull the engine sometime. Probably look into moving it down to the Boat Shop sometime after Christmas.
