That compressor install turned out nice!  Where did you get the waterproof circuit breaker?

Pulled the distributor on the Wagoneer today and took it apart to replace the centrifugal/mechanical advance springs.  I installed a lighter set of springs that will allow full timing advance at a lower RPM.  The pic is a generic photo of the springs.  My first time fooling around with this mod, it did make a difference, but I still need more low end acceleration.  The engine runs amazingly smooth for its age/mileage (~200,000).  The search for power continues.

Long Saturday, did not get the gears fully swapped. Ran into a shim issue on the front. But should have one that will get me the backlash I want by Friday.

Did get the fenders and level kit installed and mounted the rims and tires. This week will be the bed rack swap.
