really stupid question about the inspection cover on transmission....

We finally got the transmission and transfer case slid into place and bolted up only to find that the inspection plate/cover won't swing up and into place. Please tell me I can just pull the starter and put it in place???


Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

My Jeep is possessed with the goal of making me lose my religion....

You should not install the starter until you have the cover in place, much easier that way.

Obviously haven't owned the YJ long enough. You have to do a lot of things different on this old beast but it will keep you laughing at times.

Had it almost a year now and I have known the transmission was coming for some time now... put it off as long as I could

Well if your old line me get a tranny jack from harbor freight best $80 I ever spent. Works for dropping anything out the bottom of the jeep, skid plate, t-case, gas tank, differentials.
