the jimmy moved!

Post by florida4x4 » Sun Jul 21, 2019 10:40 am

...too bad it was with a winch and it was to make room to work on something else.

I keep hope up that I'll have time to work on it soon.

anyway, this place is dead! Pic for attention! :flipoff:

Glad the Jimmy moved! How long is "soon"?

Nice chrome muffler Scott! If you ever take it off some sweet jumps it will be visible!

Cheaper than a Jones built, and it does fit really good.

Sounds soo much better than the old one

Plus if I ever roll it I will be real easy to spot from the air!

It is an 8v inline 4
#2 and 3 share an exhaust port
Only 2 intake ports.
All on the same side of the motor!
And pushrods, LOL
Weirdest motor evah

What is the winch config in that pic?

Looks wrapped around a stump and hooked to the bumper?

I setup the winch for moving dead vehicles on the trailer but it has 1001 uses otherwise. In this case, I sank a redhed into the slab so I could bolt it down and pull the jimmy away from said slab. It's supposed to be on the lift but now it's just waiting it's turn.
