Jeep Yj Transmission Bolts

So how many of you have the doomed internal slave problem? My slave finally went, and getting everything apart was easy, but when it came to the top two E12 reverse torx bolts, the drivers side decided it wanted to fuse itself to the block. I had to cut the damned thing with my air rotary tool. How many of you have had these issues? It sucked at the time, but at least now I could laugh about it.

I rebuilt my tranny last winter.

Luckily, however, the last time I had my tranny out YEARS ago I had done the smart thing and replaced those reverse torx bolts with some traditional hex heads. Gave myself a pat on the back for that one. ha ha

94 YJ w/ stuff. All the work/money I put into it, and the comment I get most is my $20 mod: "Hand throttle?!? That's awesome."

Haha, I did the same thing, Just got the transmission in tonight and all bolted back up, tomorrow brings putting back in the exhaust, starter, and hooking all of the sensors back up, then bleeding the damned hydraulics.....

Yep, I had to cut mine off that way as well. Replaced them with hex bolts.

Bringing up the dead, but Pep boys gave me a bad pilot bearing, damn thing was no good, 500 miles later, I had to pull the tranny and clutch again, take out the ****ty bearing, put the new one in and off I went...thankfully I put the 6 point in instead of the reverse torx
