CJ5 Drivetrain build

I recently decided to do a build on my drivetrain. I currently have a 79 cj5, v8, t150, and dana 20. I recently bought a dana 300 so I'm starting the build thread with that.

I didn't get any pictures of the tear down. I got it down to the case, soaked everything in gasoline, and started prepping for paint.

started off by taping around the edges of all of the openings. I cut the bolt holes open and re installed the aluminum inputs and outputs. cut off all the excess tape and finished taping up the rest of the holes.

got the transfer case painted today. hit it with the wire brush before I shot it with the rattle can. two coats of primer and three coats of mat acrylic black. threw it in my mom's oven. she didn't like that very much.

I have a dana 300 overhaul in my future. I hasn't failed but, I need to replace the syncros in my t-176 and plan to give my transfercase some attention while I have it out.

Who did you buy your rebuild kit through?

I found the kit on ebay. from what I have read online just make sure you have access to a press, a set of feeler gauges, and tons of Vaseline. I'll post the link to the ebay page.

Nice tear down. I think my wife would have chased me out of the house if I baked a part in her oven... and rightfully so. You know people have been poisoned that way. You may want to remember that for next time.

I just let it sit in the sun for a few days.

Take care,

Check out "YJ V6 Conversion" if you want to see a frame up restoration of my 1992 YJ.
