Battery cable clamp

I did a battery swap in the dark while on our summer road trip and lost the clamp that allows one of the battery cables to grip the battery terminal with that bell shaped nut.

My Jeep dealership tells me this part is not available, as it’s part of a $650 wiring package, so I’m wondering if anyone has an extra. Perhaps someone whose installed a dual battery system with new cables (like I plan to do soon with Genesis). Or maybe if you know of a wrecked JK at a junk yard.

I’m happy to Paypal someone $20 if they’re willing to toss the little thing in an envelope and mail it to me. Otherwise, I’ll probably buy a new battery cable. Good job Chrysler in making a simple thing complicated.

Buffett performs in San Francisco

From Mercury News: “Jimmy Buffett delivers memorable tribute to late, great Tom Petty

Jimmy Buffett was back in the Bay Area on Thursday night, delighting fans at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco with such longtime concert favorites as “Find” and “Volcano.”

Yet, Mr. “Margaritaville” also took the time to pay tribute to the great Tom Petty, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer who died Oct. 2.

First up, Buffett performed a really solid version of Petty’s 1989 hit “I Won’t Back Down.”.

Later in the set – during the encore, actually – he’d perform yet another Petty classic, “Wildflowers.”

Buffett also paid tribute to his old buddy Glenn Frey (who died in 2016) and played a nice version of the Eagles’ first hit, “Take It Easy.”

And, as per usual in San Francisco, Buffett tipped his hat to Jerry Garcia (who died in 1995) and the Grateful Dead, this time around with “Scarlet Begonias” (which he’s played many times before in the Bay Area).

so this happened today

had to replace the heater core in a friends car today.

puddle of antifreeze over the ecm

the new heater core

and with it all put back together, in one day!

took about 8 hours from start to finish to do it. ups showed up today with the heater core around 10:30. with all of the bolts inside the car, away from the road salt, there was no rust to deal with! unlike the brakes i did on it about a week ago.

had to cut the front rotors off, and had to fracture one of the rear rotors to get it to clear the parking brake shoe.

and what do you see missing in the picture below???

thats right, there was no brake pad there when i pulled the tire off!

replaced all 4 rotors, calipers and pads.

the worst brakes i have ever seen on a car. they were so bad that the rear tires were completely locked up and driving the car forward or backwards couldn’t free them up!

Article on Escape to Margaritaville

From “Jimmy Buffett’s Broadway musical is a ‘beach vacation’

Pay attention. There’s a new kid in town.

Name’s Paul Alexander Nolan. He stars in singer/songwriter/guitarist Jimmy Buffett’s soon-due Broadway musical “Escape to Margaritaville

“When I tested for the role, I was laid-back. Not showy,” he said. “Christopher Plummer says, ‘Wear the right shoes at auditions.’ It’s like a dialect. Flip-flops, boots, heels, dress shoes affect your stance. Your inside feeling.

“This show’s islandy. Set on a beach vacation. So, dead of winter, I came to the audition carrying a bag of clothes and, like a lunatic, changed into resort wear, sandals, Hawaiian shirt, a guitar on my back.

“There’s so many screw-ups trying out a new show. Once onstage, I’m playing the opening lick. Singing loud lyrics to a Buffett song. Suddenly I blanked. Couldn’t remember what’s next. So I just asked the audience who were his fans, ‘What’s next?’ and they shouted it out.

“This is no usual jukebox musical. Writers took his songs, extracted his folklore and localized it . . . he’s now from Montauk.”

OK, OK. Tell me about the show.

“To feel Jimmy’s roots, how he started in bars, he made me sing in a packed bar where it’s loud. People continued to talk. I’m used to quiet theater. He did a set, then I did a set. My anxiety was only quelled by my longtime practice. And I learned to keep on, plow through even while the joint kept partying.

“You’re going to love ‘Escape to Margaritaville.’”

BA 10/5

Thanks! I saw that video and I also saw some Ebay listing for BA/10 with linkage removed and it looks a bit different. In essence, AX15 has two holes where the pressure plate (or what ever) that grabs it and BA/10 seems to have beeds that runs the entire circumference of the linkage and at three different positions!! what a horrible design…

The other final option is to cut it, install the boot and re-weld.

Hard door Glass replacement

I’d check out an automotive glass shop (or several). They may stock what you’re looking for or at least have some idea of where to get them.

I’m sure you’ve already tried a dealer parts dept. What I’ve found, is that if you go there in person, it’s harder for the counter person to lazily say “They’re no longer available” than to actually look them up. Try to go mid-morning or mid-afternoon on a weekday when they’re less likely to be so busy.

EG terminal has a good website for automotive hardware. I don’t know if they carry glass hardware or not, but as an outside chance, I’d try there….or perhaps Fastenal.

Where’d you buy the glass. They may have a source for the plastic gizmos.

Good Luck, L.M.
