General Discussion / Re: Hone Overdrive, anyone ever seen one on a CJ car
« Last post by Armond on Today at 02:43:54 am »
So I remembered the other night a good friend of mine who lives locally and is a Boss/CJ owner had told me once that he had sold the KR convert to Nate.  I gave him a call and asked him about the build sheet and what I had read, he said that only the special paint info was in the remarks and that the original paper work from Shelby that I had read had the 2 speed hone drive typed in the information to the car and that he had a letter that came from Mr Shelby that I was not aware of,  That had some info on the car apparently that he had requested.  So I did remember what I read, just not on the Build sheet. So there ya go..

Pulled the trigger and just received it yesterday- in time for its 50th birthday today (build date 01/16/1969). I’ll register it tomorrow when I’ve got more time.

The "Autolite" replica batteries don't last very long and are expensive.  I bought a Motocraft battery 7 yrs ago and it's still going strong.  I keep it on a trickle charge though.

Quick question:

Am I correct that inside a GROUP 24 or 27 "AUTOLITE" replica battery is a regular AGM battery, correct?

General Discussion / Re: flywheel balance

Glad to see your problem is fixed.
Something to's not only the flywheel that can cause vibration. The harmonic balancer also must be changed to " neutral" balance. All 428CJ's are externally balanced and the flywheel and balancer must be on the crankshaft at time of the balance work. Unless you have switched to internal balancing, then the flywheel and balancer must also be " neutral". (No weight on flywheel). 
Neutral balance is more for race stuff and high rpm.
Just my .02¢.

  Correction , ALL FE balancers are NEUTRAL  The 410s and 428s are counter weighted in the REAR only! The SCJ has a counter weight on the crank sleeve and a larger ( still neutral) balancer.

Thanks. I hope that this is all worked out. If that f***ing motor has to come out SWMBO will have me sleeping in the garage.    Dave R.
     You say that like It's a bad thing. :D Best of luck.......either way.

I've slept in worse places but at 66 years old my old bones have grown accustomed to the plusher sleeping accoutrements.   Dave R.
