Peddle assembly install sucks!!! Anyone into self torture? If so, feel free to stop by tonight and put my peddles in! I walked away from the jeep in disgust after about 45 minutes of no progress other then adding hurt to my hands and fingers. LOL
Transmission is bolted up, starter installed, clutch slave installed. Slap the peddles in tonight (I hope!!!!) and then if that goes quickly somehow... Then I'll throw the T-case in also and get all that linkage hooked back up and try to get the driveshafts back in assuming the lengths are still fine. Maybe even get the skidplate back up in place. That'll just leave the shifter, center console and other random interior parts I've pulled off and some wiring stuff.
Other then the peddles last night the whole trans swap has been pretty straight forward and easy so far. Note to self, next time pull the cooler lines before you start installing new trans cause you'll have to pull it back off, including the clutch, flywheel and backing plate... LOL
Also, didn't get nearly as much done yesterday as I'd hoped cause I got sucked into the TV watching supercross in the morning. Then spent half the day running parts! Went to pickup the flywheel and crank position sensor. Got home, realized I'd forgot a new pilot bearing and clutch alignment tool. Run back out and can't find anyplace that sells just the tool, it's only included in a clutch assembly. Fine, I'll borrow one... Head home, realize the throw out bearing seems good but it has one rough spot that probably wasn't anything but I decide screw it, I'm putting a new clutch in it too since it's all out. So run back out and return the pilot bearing and just buy an entire clutch assembly! Awesome right!!!! Head home, crawl under it, slap the tin up there, put the flywheel in place and find the bolts that held the flexplate on are now too short for the flywheel!!!! Crap!!! Off to ace hardware, I need 6 bolts, they've only got 3... So then run across town to another ace hardware to pick up the remaining 3 bolts. Finally got everything in possession to start working on it around 2 in the afternoon. LOL Oh well, still not a bad Sunday and I'm happy to see noticeable progress. I never feel like removing stuff is progress... It doesn't feel like progress till new parts are going in!
