First post here. Just brought home a 1986 Grand Wagoneer with a bad trans. Tranny fluid smelled burnt so I just dropped it and the transfer case Sunday, took it apart and the thing was filled with dirt. Need to replace both clutch hubs but the bad part is that the case is busted where the sprag sits. Anyone know where I can score a case for an A727?

Also looking for a left side rear door, any ideas?

The Jeep was given to me with paperwork so it will only cost me what it takes to get it running. Engine is a 360 and it purrs like a new born kitten at dinner time. Hoping to get it on the road ASAP. Any tips are appreciated

I would think there would be plenty of donors close to you. http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=77 . Try here. Keep in mind a jeep 727 bell housing is not the same as a Mopar. Oh Yea ......Welcome its we'll worth the time invested.

I enjoy working on my Woody, but it's SOOO NICE to drop it off and when you pick it up... all those things are marked off your list! I'm dropping mine off Monday to have some things done

Thanks for the welcome everyone! Looks like I should be able to get the door pretty easy and I did find a used tranny for cheap enough that I can still go through it to make sure it is good. Dropping it out is not something I want to do on a regular basis.

As far as dropping it off to get it worked on, not an option right now. Money is too tight and the last time I had major work by someone else, it had to be done again and it still wasn't a very good job on the second try. Took a rebuilt tranny apart once and there were several hard parts that should have been replaced and weren't. And the bands hadn't even been adjusted.

Well, right now this is going to be a weekend project until I can get the tranny project completed. I will try and get some pics although it isn't much to look at right now. She is going to be a mountain goat of sorts. A little lift, 3 or 4 ", with some decent tires that will get me to the mountain (in central CA) without making me deaf and then a little toolin' around the ranch up there.

As soon as I can get it to that stage, a coyote tan base coat and something in a desert camo scheme. Only seems right, that should go with the evil black toys we like to play with in the desert (well, some of mine aren't actually black ;-).

BTW, anybody ever build their own bumpers? I have a decent pile of steel and was seriously thinking of building something different. I've seen some pretty nice aftermarket units but like building things myself. Any pictures of unusual or unusually sturdy bumpers would be appreciated.

Again, thanks for the welcome! I'll keep you posted as to the progress.

Drive it to work for the second time and have a transmission fluid puddle under the grill. Can't quite track it down but it is fairly messy behind the grill. Any ideas?

Sounds like a hose on the trans cooler,
