General Mopar Discussions / Draggin' wagon....
« on: August 18, 2012, 10:10:59 AM »
I might go again next week....change a few things on the motor and see if it helps.  I could easily see myslef snowballing into the drag racing thing with the wagon....I had a hoot.

General BS and Laughs / Citizens arrest....
« on: July 29, 2012, 07:08:12 PM »
Well last Wednesday was my one day off...worked 80+ hours this last
week.  Anyway I needed a new pair of sunglasses and though I'd give
Walmart a try...really hate going there but sometimes I do.

So I
decided to load my daughters into the wagon and cruise on down.  I
turned into the back entrance to the parking lot, which is shared by the
 Homedepot as well, and I hear a car alarm going off.  This in itself is
 not too strange but at this moment a sketchy character darts out in
front of me carrying a bag and looking around nervously.  I decide to
follow him through the parking lot slowly..I see him rummaging through
the bag as he was walking, and he kept looking back towards the car
alarm in the other lot.  He also tried to get into a couple other cars
during his circuit through the lot. 

He was nearing the far back
 corner of the lot, near where the walmart employees take there breaks,
when I hear a car coming that direction very quickly...motor racing,
tires squealing.  The guy looked back, freaked out, dropped the bag he
was caring and started to run.  A little ford ranger came racing up and a
 60 year old guy darted out and started after the guy.  At this point I
decided I needed to try and help get this guy.  SO I told the girls to
hold on and raced out of the walmart parking lot and tore up and around
the store to where I figured the two would be coming out. 

As I came racing up the street I told the girls to keep an eye open for the guy.  We saw the old guy winded on the sidewalk
and across the street is a big dirt lot where commercial trucks
park...we spotted the guy in between a couple trucks.  I came tearing
into the lot right in front of the trucks where he was, slammed on the
breaks and tossed the car into park and jumped out and ordered the guy
to stay right where he was and don't move.  Guess my 6'8" and 275 frame
made a bit of an impression because he put his hands up right away and
said he wouldn't move.

The guy was wearing a fanny type pack
around one should then down around his torso so I grabbed him by the
shirt and that strap and held him from behind until the cops arrived to
arrest him.  I didn't notice right away but he was wearing a big knife
on his right hip, and after the arrest the cops found a couple sticks of
 dynamite in his pack!!  Cops thanked me profusely for my help, and said
 they wish more people would take action to help stop these pieces of
low life trash.

It was a great feeling to catch this lowlife douche nozzle...small payback for the stuff the wife has had stolen from her car.  Kids were thrilled about all the action and stuff and said it was the best "Daddy Day" EVER!!

Looking for a wiring diagram for a 94 Jeep wagoneer.  My fathers jeep with a straight six and an auto won't start with the key anymore.  He doesn't have a FSM, and I can't seem to find the ignition system wiring diagram,m on-line anywhere.  If anyone has one and could scan and post it up, or e-mail me I'd appreciate it.

General BS and Laughs / Never cheat on a farm girl....
« on: December 02, 2011, 10:53:49 AM »
A country wife came home just in time to find her husband in bed with another woman. With super-human strength, borne of fury, and cutting firewood, lifting sacks of feed, and bales of hay, she dragged him down the stairs, out the back door
and into the barn.
She put his manhood in a vice and then secured it tightly and removed the handle. Next she picked up an old carpenter's' saw.
The wife, with a gleam of revenge in her eye, put the saw in her husband's[/color]
I'm gonna burn down the barn!"

General BS and Laughs / Fishing Boat...
« on: December 02, 2011, 07:41:10 AM »

 A good ole Saskatchewan boy won a fishing  boat in a raffle drawing.
He brought it home and his wife looks at him and says, "What the heck
you gonna do with that. There ain't no water deep enough to float a
boat within 75 miles of here.";

He says, "I won it and I'm a gonna keep it."

His brother came over to visit several days later. He sees the wife
and asks where his brother is. She says, "He's out there in his
fishing boat", pointing to the field behind the house.

The brother heads out behind the house and sees his brother sitting in
a fishing boat with a fishing rod in his hand down in the middle of a
big field. He yells out to him, "What the heck are you doing?"

His brother replies "I'm fishin'. What the heck does it look like I'm a doing?"

His brother yells back, "It's people like you that give people from
Saskatchewan a bad name, making everybody think we are stupid. If I

General Mopar Discussions / Junk yard score!!
« on: September 14, 2011, 06:12:47 PM »

Well I was junk yarding the other day and came across something I couldn't pass on.  I was cruising methodically through the yard when I came across a dodge van.  I usually don't bother too much with the vans but for some reason I went to the drivers side and popped open the door.  Well what did I see staring at me from the drivers side...."3" pedals!!!

I then jumped out and looked at the model...88 Dodge 1/2 ton van....Hmmm....looked between the bucket seats and spotted a shifter with a certain shift ball on the top.  Then quickly crawled under the van and sure enough it had a complete...unmolested A833OD set-up behind a 318!!

Needless to say I couldn't get it out fast enough...30 minutes later I was on my way up to the register one happy customer.  Then $150 (including core and taxes) I was out the door with my prize.  !banana

Here's a couple pics....

I plan on using this set-up behind the flathead 6 in my 48 Desoto...eventually.  ;)

General BS and Laughs / Cool old junkyard
« on: July 29, 2011, 05:22:04 PM »
Got this link off the station wagon forum I frequent.  Cool junk yard in Oregon.  Typical Pacific Northwest rain forest.

Super cool car and nature art...but kind of sad to see some of the rare cars returning to the elements.

General Mopar Discussions / Back from vacation in the wagon...
« on: July 17, 2011, 09:59:34 AM »
Well we got home last night from a 1800 kms (1125 miles) trek in the ol' wagon.  

We have been using the wagon for our family vacations for the past 4 years, since I got it on the road.  The car always performs flawlessly, with some small issues, but never anything to hinder our trip.

This year we were gone for a 8 days, and visited family in Prince George BC, then on the way back down we had the use of a friends cabin at Horsefly lake.  

Here are a few pics....

Stopped at The Bear Claw lodge in Cache Creek BC....

Then some eats in Williams lake BC...Me and my daughters.

Gotta love the big tailgate for sittin' and munchin'...  :p

Then on the way back out at the cabin at Horse Fly Lake....

It rained most of the time we were out, and we didn't even need to use the A/C in the wagon once!!  Actually we had to turn the heat on one time though.  This is the coolest July I can ever remember here in BC...But I love it since I'm not a heat lover.

Any way just wanted to share.

Tech- - Engine / Ignition problems??
« on: June 21, 2011, 11:32:50 AM »
Well I'm a bit stumped on this one and thought I'd post up my issues and see if someone can see something I am not.

This problem has developed, and gotten worse, over the last year or so.....The 440 in the wagon when I first fire it up the problem is not that bad but when it warms up I get a fluctuation of 100-400 RPM in the ignition.  Doesn't seem to matter if I'm accelerating or just cruising, the tach is jumping sporadically.  It doesn't seem to be cyclical in nature, and it's always a RPM drop, not a spike.

I have a Petronix ignitor I in a re-manufactured stock dizzy, with a matching Petronix Flame thrower coil.  I just recently swapped out the old mechanical voltage regulator for the new electronic unit in the original case.  

Here's what I've tried.

- swapped out the flame thrower coil for a stock unit....No change.
- Changed ballast resistors...No change.
- Pulled out the Petronix dizzy and re-installed the original points dizzy...problem got worse!  During warm up it was missing horribly.

Can't think what else it could be.  I also installed new Champion plugs, and Accel 8.8 plug wires, cap and rotor, last fall hoping this might solve the problem.

Thoughts, suggestions?
