Nice thread Purp. Wish I had the time, space and money to 5 speed the 318. I see rat has done it, but I am not that advanced with welding, fabrication or anything metalurgy wise so can only watch and drool!

Nice job so far though!

made some progress today. i'm almost ready to pull the engine/tranny. have most of the cherokees front end torn apart just have to finish unbolting the crossmember, the tcase linkage, and the gas lines(i should have pulled the fuse for the fuel pump and then ran the lines dry, but no i'm not that smart haha), find a suitable spot to bolt my lift chains, unbolt the engine mounts and then pull the engine/tranny

about 45 minutes later lol

when i quit for the day(family christmas function... lol)

interior torn apart

poor baby(yes i know its a mickey mouse jeep now)

again

the ugliest shift knob i've ever seen, and it was on my xj dont worry i'll be putting on a good shift knob

well folks. thats all for today. stay tuned

This is a great build. I love how more and more ZJs are turning 5 speed.

Here's my thread/progress of my 5 speed swap.

Im so busy this winter break that I wont have time to continue it until after the New Year.

. spent today cleaning up the garage/organizing the tools and getting the flywheel/clutch assembly off the xj motor then putting the zj back in the garage. hoping to start unbolting the zj tranny here in a bit. yesterdays(sundays) progress
oooh what are these....??
where did it go??

oh there it is. notice the word save on the tires haha... now i'm glad we did save them

i guess the engine/tranny/tcase just werent getting along. talk about a love triangle gone wrong. they decided it would be best to go there separate ways... i'm guessing its cuz the tranny was such a dirty little ******

def needs to be cleaned up

dirtttaayyyyy

i need to steal the clutch assembly and flywheel tomorrow. btw see those silver rods coming off the engine one on each side of the clutch assembly. a trick a friend taught me. take your stock bellhousing bolt to the hardware store get one a few inches longer and cut the head off and grind in a recess so you can tighten/loosen in with a flathead. these will help guide the transmission shaft in/out of the engine during install and removal

how i left the garage for the night... once i get up tomorrow its clean the garage spotless, put away all the tools in the correct spots and then pull the zj in the garage to get the tools all disorganized again..

overall not a bad day. i wanted to make more progress but ran into some issues. enjoy

made "progress" today. removed tcase skid, removed rear driveshaft, removed bolts securing tranny mount to crossmember, removed auto shifter assembly. also ran into a slight issue, i need to pull the exhaust so i can drop the auto tranny but the bolts on the flange wont budge. i even sprayed them down with pb blaster and still nothing. i'm thinking i'm gonna have to bust out the cutoff wheel to persuade the bolts... tomorrow i'll make more progress and i'll be laying off the booze tonight lol. its been a looonnggg day, seems i cant drink like i used to be able to lol
obligatory

ah much better

Remember before you junk that Xj, take all the light bulbs out and fuses> I do it whenever i junk vechiles. When they ask me does it run, i say "yup did when we parked it there (they do) Then think to myself idlike to see them start it with no fuses
