thanks. I needed to know what year K5 Blazer to buy to put under my Willys station wagon body. I don't want to have to mess with smog stuff.
There are some pretty good deals going on for K5's on all the counties of Craigslist.

That's what I want to do. I have the pink slip for the 1950 Willys, but somebody told me that when it's been non-op for more than X amount of years, they want to see it, because they know you probably modified it and put in a different drive train.
If so, it becomes the drive train's year and model. Doesn't make any sense to me, but I'd rather drop a Vortec 5.3 in it, or a newer 350 with FI.

I just need to do more research.

Sooooo......

I used every ratchet extension I had and made a three foot long extension, and I finally got those two pesky E-12 torx bolts out of the top of the bell housing. They came out pretty easy from behind the skid plate at that angle. Everything is disconnected, the exhaust is off, and the skid pan only has the corner bolts, as well as only two lower bell housing bolts holding it in.
Question is, how do I balance that tranny and t-case to drop it down? There's no flat spot to put the floor jack, and it needs to come backwards to come out. I have a smaller floor jack supporting the rear of the engine, and I have a big floor jack for the tranny. Maybe throw a strap around the tranny and tie it to the floor jack?
How heavy is that bad boy? Can two people handle it laying on the floor?
How many people can fit under a Jeep?

If ya lived a bit closer...... I have a transmission lift and a motorcycle lift. Both work great.

Neither the trans or TC are extremely heavy on their own but will be a bear for two people to try and lower without the help of something. Plus you will never be able to get it back in. Thats the real fun part. I recommend renting or borrowing a trans lift or some sort of ATV/motorcylce lift. If you are willing to drive you can grab mine.

I wanna say 4 is the most I've seen under at one time but that doesn't mean you can't do better!

Glad you mentioned that. I have an ATV lift, but I'm not sure it will go high enough.
I am coming down your way this week, but I'm still unsure of what day.

I'll roll the ATV lift under there tomorrow and check it out.

Thanks Jason.

It doesn't have a motor or trans in it, but I'm gunna' try. If they want to see it then it's a different story.

A. RENT a tranny jack;

B. CHAIN it to the jack;

C. How many eople fit under a Jeep? Depends on thier size. If they're my size,4 tops. NORMAL people, 8 or so; depends on the weather.

Are you coming south this week?

Happy Trails,
moose

Where's the fun in that? I was thinking to kill two birds and turn it into a drum sander.

I was thinking to use some straps to tie it to the ATV jack so it doesn't fall off.
I am going south this week, but still haven't heard from the doctor. They want to run some blood tests and a cat scan on me. I emailed him this morning to find out the appointment time.
Either way, I'll be down there this week.

More like an automatic amputation device.

Thanks. I'll try my ATV lift and if it isn't big enough, I'll give you a call.

I replaced the clutch in my YJ last May by myself. ( not true my sweet young bride was the legs for my beer that day) With a jack stand under the tranny. I seperated the transfere case and the Tranny. (hand full of bolts) And balanced the transfere case with one hand while lowering /operating the floor jack with the other hand, a 231 is not that heavy. Then moved the jack stand from under the tranny to under the motor. With a block a wood on the floor jack I pulled the tranny while balancing it with one hand and operating the floor jack with the other. Note: the center line of the tranny is not the center of the wieght distibuted inside the tranny. The floor jack was postioned alot farther towards the rear of the tranny than you might think... I've done it both ways, with the Tranny and Tcase married up and seperated. I like them seperated. The weight your are working with is greatly reduced. Clutch Alignment tool Clutch Alignment tool Clutch Alignment tool, you need a Clutch Alignment tool. Makes life a bunch easer
When I went back together I had a floor jack under the motor which was a big help in aligning the input shaft of the tranny to the pilot bearing. The T case was a breeze to line up. It sounds easier than actually doing it and there is always a health measure disciptive language involved.
