New Oil Wicks for the K&T Saddle

With the oil passages of saddle on the K&T 2HL all clear, I need to fish all the oil felts between the different outlets and the oil reservoir. Had some issues with the fragility of the felt cords. I managed to get them all completed, but it was quite an ordeal.

Clearing Out Oil Passages in the K&T Saddle

With the saddle off the K&T 2HL and cleaned up, I needed to make sure all the oil passages were clear and clean before I can run new felt. This turned out to be more of a challenge than I expected due to some stupid mistakes on my part! As I watch the video back during editing, I can see the plugs were moving in some cases when I center punched them. More evidence that I should have removed these a different way. Lesson learned for the next time – if there ever is a next time!

Modifying 4 door Jeep Rock Sliders for a 2 Door Jeep

A friend of mine gave a set of JCR Offroad rock silders to another friend for his Jeep. Trouble is, the rock sliders are made for a 4 door and the recipient has a 2 door. I spent a little (lot) of time with a cutoff wheel on an angle grinder and a welder making these a bit shorter so they will fit the 2 door Jeep.

Remove the saddle from the Kearney & Trecker 2HL Horizontal Mill

The last major component to come off the K&T is the saddle. The knee is too cumbersome to remove and I was advised against doing that. With this part off, I can get to cleaning and painting all these parts.
