Just a note to introduce myself, I have been lurking for four weeks and just finished the deal with my JEEP today so..........Hello all.
This looks like another board I need to check daily,(along with Turbobuick.com) and I'll try to do a search before asking any easy questions.
My new ride is big and Neon green, so I think it will be fun to cruise around in, but I have some wheeling plans too. I have had a Samurai, an Exploder, and a full size Bronco, but a JEEP has always been the real dream.
And now the stupid questions:
It has a new flywheel, clutch, clutch master cyl., and rebuilt trans. The guy I bought it from has had the last trans and this one in and out seven times and it always has the same problem, 5th and 3rd won't work. The shifter will go into the location for the gear but there is no motion. The trans when out was at a tranny shop and it looks perfect (like it should being freshly rebuilt) so I took the JEEP as is and got $800.00 of the price to fix it. Unfortunatley an auto or AX15 swap is out of the question so I need to make what I have work.
So now finally to the question:
Any suggestions for me to tell the shop where to start?, I'm thinking maybe clutch adjustment but I'm more familiar with an auto trans.
One more, will getting rid of the cat and getting a local shop to do a manifold back exhaust in 2 1/2" help enough to justify the $?. The stock stuff is there but I figure with the stock crappy carb all these years the converter may be plugged.
