Project PoonTank (92 XJ)-photo211.jpg yesterday I went and rescued the fair lady and took her off to await some repair. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to bring her all the way back to greenville with me yesterday, but she is safe at a friends place near Charleston. I did have enough time to look the jeep over some and check some general item. Unfortunately she does have a blown head gasket and there is some noise from the bottom end when running. I hope to find a used 4.0 and drop it in. If anyone would like updates I can post them here, or I could make a new thread.

Project PoonTank (92 XJ)-photo81.jpg picked up the motor that will go in the Cherokee. Now I just need to get the Cherokee from where it's stored to my house and work on it.

The thing about a free vehicle is that it's never free. There are quite a few little issues that will need to be resolved before it can be driven somewhat reliably.

Project PoonTank (92 XJ)-photo454.jpg moved it from where it was stored 3 hours away up to my parents house where the heart transplant will take place. Cleaned it up a little and tried messing with the fog lights, but I think they're done for. Hopefully
I can start the heart transplant soon, but we'll see. I have a lot on my plate for winter break.

Started getting some stuff off, but it started raining. Got the rear driveshaft out which needs u-joints, got the warn lights off the front (I'll try to see if I can get them working again, but figured the extra room would be nice for pulling the motor), track bar bolt is loose, but I won't worry about it till I get the motor swap done.

Started raining so I called it quits for the day. I'll probably just do a little at a time since I spend all day working on other people's cars.

Project PoonTank (92 XJ)-photo672.jpg just about ready to pull the motor out. I think I might call it a day and wait till I have a friend around to help guide it all out.

Project PoonTank (92 XJ)-photo807.jpg got the motor that's going in it torn down mostly. Swapping valve covers, water pump, thermostat housing, timing cover, doing the rear main seal, and re sealing the oil pan. Hopefully it'll be a leak free decently running motor. A few friends are coming over Saturday and I hope to have the old motor out and the new motor in by the end of the day.
