While you have the tranny and T-Case out you may want to put new seals in the cases. Tranny out put T-Case input and out put, check your u-joints while the shaft is down and the rear pinion seal.

Some time cleaning up all the parts and may be some spray bomb would go a long way. You can also address any frame corrosion in that area and tidy that up also.

While your down take a look down the drivers frame rail and inspect your brake and fuel lines and see what kind of health they are in may be some future work there.

Thats enough to keep someone busy for a week.

Be very, very careful when you're removing and installing the slave cylinder hydraulic line. The line coming from your clutch MC is a small plastic line and the fitting where you disconnect the slave is very easy to damage. If damaged, you'll end up with a continuous leak and it's very difficult to find replacements.

I suggest a pilot bearing puller. Makes the job real easy and is normally free to rent. Also there should be an inverted torx bolt at the top of the transmission bell housing, E6 torx socket, swivels and extensions are good to have while removing this bolt. Replace with a 6 point bolt if possible.

Okay guys, he is doing a clutch job, not a complete overhaul lol. At this rate you might as well take the body off and do a rebuild on everything.

To to give an update, finished it last night, There were a number of things that were done Incorrectly before, that i had to go in and change, My only question is that on other peoples YJ, Is that skid plate the support for the transmission? I feel like it puts a huge stress on the whole system, if you like i can upload photos to show what i am describing, But overall 2days of working in 105 Degree weather in Sunny San Diego it went together, I replaced the Master Cylinder as it wasnt allowing for bleeding of the lines at the end did a last min autozone run, Next quest is to fix the exhaust system on it, in a couple weeks. My yj really reminds me of a women, its never happy, always complains but at the end of the day, You treat her as royilty no matter how much Bull ***** you get put through or am i the only one who feels that way? Anyway, feel free to PM me with questions or comments anytime!

Yes, the skid plate is the only support for the transmission. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/t...cement-903109/

The skid plate does indeed support the transmission. The reason you feel in puts strain on the system is because the engine pivots on the engine mounts, so when you put up the skid plate, you are in turn, lifting the back portion of the engine, transmission and transfer case. Yup, very similar to a woman, minus a few things that women can do for you.
