Noted, I'll probably do that when the interior is back together

Re: Kronk the Jeep build thread

Just curious, how does an oZone machine fix a small exactly? do you mean like a HEPA filter that generates ozone as well as filtering?

This is what I was able to find:

"As ozone is created it floats freely in the air and water. By nature it is an unstable molecule and has a half-life of approximately 20 minutes. Shortly after ozone is created it begins to break back down. It will cast off the first ozone atom, which will recombine with either another oxygen atom, reverting back to simple Oxygen (O2), or it will recombine with another gaseous element forming an inert gas losing all of its odor characteristics. Picture a room full of smoke; it is the phenol gas that is released that is the basis of the odor. It is in the air and on the surface of all areas exposed to the smoke. When introduced to that environment, the ozone quickly breaks down as it combines with the phenol gas molecule destroying all odor characteristics."

Re: Kronk the Jeep build thread

Yeah basically the quote you posted is the concept. The ozone attaches to various organic particles and when it does the both kinda react and become something else, essentially destroying what is causing the smell. At least that’s my layman understanding. And no, those HEPA filter ones aren’t strong enough. You need an actual ozone machine, and of course those are not legal at least in California… but Amazon doesn’t seem to care and sold me one.

Because ozone attaches to anything organic… you could imagine the reaction it would have if you took several lung fulls.

For my truck I bought that was previously smoked in, I would turn the timer knob on the ozone machine all the way up, stick it in the truck with the AC on recirculating mode, run an extension cord out the door and close it, then plug the machine in to the extension cord once it was closed in the truck. Once it was done I would open all the doors and let it air out for about 30 minutes. I did that two or three times and it made a huge difference. The smell still slightly comes back if the truck sits in the heat for a long time with the windows closed, but it’s nothing like it was. I probably just need to do it a couple more times.

Don’t let pets around when you’re using it and don’t do it with people in close proximity

Also, since natural rubber is organic it could break down rubber over time. I’d imagine you’d have to do it an insane amount though

I'll have to keep your method in mind. Probably could use the machine in my car as well, a couple of big dogs hasn't done wonders for the smell.

Kronk the Jeep build thread

Been a while. Got busy with work and then California turned into water world. Started seeing animals going down my street in pairs, but I digress. Finally dropped the t-case and yanked the drivetrain. Other than feeling very old (gonna sore as he'll tomorrow) and giving my garage floor a healthy coating of ATF, things went pretty well. Even started unbolting the trans from the old engine but ran into an issue.

All bolts came out fine except one; one of the revere torx bolt heads on the top of the bell housing stripped. Tried vice grips and it stripped further. Any recommendations on getting this stupid bolt out?

Also, side note: the oem exhaust manifold on the old engine is not cracked anywhere. I don't think I've ever seen on that wasn't cracked.

Weld the torx socket onto the bolt?

Could also death wheel the head off and then extract the remaining bolt after the trans is removed. Then replace them with regular bolts.

Haven't had a welder for close to 10 years. Getting a new one is on the to-do list.
