I found when it sat out in the rain that the floor was getting wet. Upon further review we found rust and corrosion behind the dash from the leaks. 1st order of business get the windshield replaced and stop the leak. Then get the car detailed and dried out. And finally pull the dash out and find the corroded wiring and repair it. Thanks to the professionals at Novus Glass for helping me out.
See part 1 for the initial description. The final result leads us to a bad ground strap. Ground straps are very important on these vehicles. I will eventually find and repair it but until that time I will be adding a new ground strap from that manifold bolt to the alternator support.
Watch as I go through and determine why this Jeep cranks but does not start. Currently the engine cranks, has no power to add relay, fuel pump or injector power supply. Also gauges are not working. They come on but do not show fuel level, batt voltage, oil pressure. The solution came ccx with the help of the geniuses at Action Auto Repair in Coos Bay Oregon.
Was asked by the property owner to remove this abandoned bus. Towing it out was cost prohibitive so the decision was made to make it driveable then drive it to our impound lot. This was the assessment of condition video so we could determine what it was going to take. It had been sitting here for 19 years. The story of this private impound is a long one and we won't be undertaking it here. We did get it running and drivable after much work. Those videos will follow.
