Picked up a new alternator and battery for the XJ today. Need to install this week so I can put the truck back in the garage.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I took today off and while my kids were in pre school, I fabbed up the patch. I don't think it turned out too bad. Now it's time to clean the area up a bit and then burn it in.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Yep. The alternator went bad...and when I was taking the battery out it slipped from my hands and cracked on the driveway. I had a second battery that was dead, so I took it to get tested and the cart I was carrying it on hit a rock and tipped since it was top heavy. Broke that battery open also.

Sounds like a bad luck battery day.

It will make the trip to Moab much more comfy. The Max Tow package that was on Mark's Ecoboost V6 was flat out awesome coming over the Rocky Mountains.

Yes and no.

I had scaring in the cylinder wall from the OEM piston breaking that the hone wouldn't take out.

Having to bore it .030" over-sized so I had to buy new pistons and rings.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Well just got the 96 back from the shop.In preparation for Moab,I wanted a shift kit put in as well as fix a leak.So we got a Trans-go kit and a bunch of valve body gaskets and went at it........Help from trans-go was very good but could not overcome the lack of the correct gasket.
Shifts were solid after putting old gasket back in,but low internal pressures took out its toll on reverse.
Found a used trans that was driven to the yard to be scraped ,less miles than on the one in the 96.Swapped that in.....so all is good for the moment.
Now to work on the floor and bumper.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Went Aiken with Deanna and Molly Friday. Saturday we went to Stump's and dropped off the give a way trailer in Atalanta. Had lunch at a Comic book restaurant/bar then went back to Aiken. Saturday we hung out in Aiken and worked on my parents golf cart cleaning battery terminal. Then we meet one of her boys in Columbia at Carolina Ale house for dinner.
