Mundane, Pointless. Perfect for this forum!
So, I discover via the online inventory of the local chain of junkyards that there is an Italian sportscar recently placed. Chic, thought I, as in need of a speedometer drive unit am.
Alas! There is was! Easy to remove, only a little 30 yr old dirt and grease in my eyes. This piece is between $90-129 from the shit-hooks online (used, to be sure!) Content in my find, I decide to wonder about and see what else I need.
“The Jeep” has a mysterious electrical problem, possibly in the ignition swith. Intermittent at best, despite all attempts at repair. Found 2 late 60’s Jeeps with the same swith and yanked both. My hope was to use the innards to repair mine, but I get home and HOO BOY! One of the switchs uses the same key as mine! What are the chances?
Found a “Brand-New” deep lug off-road tire, perfect size for “The Jeep” and another servicable one to replace the down-to-cord rubber I have now.
Picked up a few tiny tasty bits along the way as well.
Out the door for under $50!
