1984 CJ7 Transmission removal

Hello Guys,

well after waiting around for a while I finally dropped that tranny/transfer case.. after removing the shifters I held the tranny up with a strap up and over the roll bar and tied to the rear bumper.. I supported the bell housing with a small jack and used my floor jack under the trans skid plate... removed all the bolts and brought her down slowly... next step is to clean it up a bit, remove tcase and take a look inside... here is quick pic of my dirty transmission and transfer case.... feel free to comment and give me any tips, I would appreciate it..

i'm hoping to rebuild it.. once I take a look inside I will figure out if its something I want to tackle or just get one of my mechanic buds to do it for me.. it's a T5... I am also keeping an eye on craigslist and other local vending sites for a cheap replacement just to get me back on the dirt road..

I started to rebuild my old one but changed my mind and decided to get a t176. At any rate either draw and or take plenty of pictures before you pull stuff apart. You have to reallly take your time taking it apart because uts not always obvious which part you have your hand based on the haynes manual diagram. In particular the internal linkage that I think is screwed to the driverside of the case. And take the adapter housing apart real slow too so you can see where everything goes in there. I think there was a thrust washer or needle bearing I couldnt figure out where the hell it went

What trans do 89 wranglers come with, a guy in town has a motor, trans, and transfer case.. I'm going to take a look at it in a bit but I don't want to go not knowing if its a easy swap.. He said the motor is a 4.2
