And turns out the guy that owned this before me allowed water to get into the oil of the t18 tranny. Great :/

I've gotten all the gears in the transmission all cleaned up. Starting to put it together when I break a snap ring. I go to the farm and auto parts stores an no one carries them that big. Great :/ looks like I will have to try again later.

Good start. It takes time. I just wish I had all day every day for a week to get mine in shape, but alas, I get a few hours a day if I'm lucky.

Ya I got all summer but I am flat broke so that's a challenge.
I'm 16 but I have all the mechanical skills to do all this so that's a plus.

It's a cj7 I bought from my uncle. It was in a tornado and got flipped. It's mostly body work, my uncle said it runs.
