1981 CJ7 Restoration - 2018.05.26

After about 24 hours, I tried to hand crank her again - not even a millimeter! Same result as yesterday. Uggh! So much for that. I took a peek into the cylinders and they were still full of Marvel Mystery Oil, so none if it had seeped through yet.

Funny thing - every surface I inspect, I find hickory nut shells. Mice have made this Jeep their home for the last 12 years and I find nests everywhere. I’ve probably removed several pounds of hickory nut shells and nesting material so far LOL. Check out the following photo of the air intake hose and the mess of nuts inside of it:
