Ditto on the basic Craftsman set when made in USA. Here is my original set from the early 80s and they continue work great. About 5 years ago I spent time sourcing the now discontinued Craftsman Professional tools (thinking made by SK Tools - USA). I would put these up to the Pepsi challenge to the big box professional tools any day. Thinking Craftsman's best stuff is now called Industrial (but Chinese). If you spend time looking around, the made in USA stuff is still out there.

OH - and the best place if you want to get the older sets - which of course are better - is to continue to look on Craigslist....find a rolling tool chest full of goodies for a few hun'd - I got one out of a divorce, and another from a guy who just moved and didn't want to take his tools.....be patient you will find great deals

Probably post up some pics if you can....though the flare wrench I'm fairly certain is Patricks.

Breaker bar is mine, as is the short extension.

So I've finally got the top on, I'll be coming out to the next one. Assuming it's on the 18th?

so put it in 4wd low to get a little further into the snow yesterday, put it back in 4wd high and went back to work. When I went to go home, she was still stuck in 4wd low . . . think someone forgot to put the nut on or she worked loose. Luckily I had a screw driver handy and was able to get it shifted back into 4wd high

Guess it was better on dry pavement then some wet road in the dark after getting her all muddy

Newbie

Cheers Defender group of DC. With a Defender 90 purchased, I am about to embark on many restoration and upgrade projects. The brit will need some work, but I could not be more excited. Looking forward to connecting with other Defender nuts out here.

Cheers.

Jiri

Ah. Gathering of this crew? I will dig back here for details. Will try to make it for sure.

Side question. I assume obsession for parts and updates is normal at this stage? The truck (admittedly one in need of work either way) is not even here and I am spending way too much time and card swipes on bits and pieces. Ha.

In the spirit of "if there are no pics, it never happen." This is the one that I bought and is on its way to make me grin ear to hear and occasionally break my heart and bank account. :-) (now if the pic attachment actually worked off my mobile)

You got it. Will definitely try to make it.

As I collect giant pile of parts for the restore. Question arises. The rear crossmember (surprise) is a little rotten. Not through, but very solid surface rust / peel. So the question ...

As I love ahead with intake / carb, suspension, interior ... worth doing the replacement of rear crossmember as well? Looks like a major job. Any of you guys here in DC area done it?

Thanks much!
