`70 CJ5 transfer case shifter position?

I am getting my `70 CJ5 back on the road (only drove it a few miles before the carb was all gunked up since it sat in a garage since `07). It was a recent purchase and I knew it needed a small amount of work to get it running well. The previous owner last drove it in 4WD. It does have a 3 speed manual and I know those gear positions, but I don't know the Transfer Case positions nor does it have a sticker or "grooves" to indicate the 4H, 4L, N, 2H, 2L position.


1.) What are the model numbers for my stock/original equipped transmission and transfer case?

2.) What are the transfer case shifter positions.

3.) No matter what position I had the transfer case in, it always "peeled wheels." The clutch was either all or nothing and never a smooth transition from stop to go. I do know I have 4.1 gears and 31" BFG MT. Is it the gearing, clutch, or a tremendous amount of power coming from the Dauntless V6 225? Or a combination of all?

4.) Considering #3 and the BFG MTs, will I lose traction when using it for commutes in snow?

Thanks for any help...........................Here is a link to some pics of my CJs x2.

Stock transmission should be the T14 and the transfer case would be the Dana 18.

Here's what the original sticker would have looked like:

Sounds like you have clutch issues or possibly crap built up on the flywheel making the clutch chatter.

Great reply, thank you very much.

I am not losing my mind when I say that there aren't any "grooves" for the positions am I? Is this normal or a problem? Maybe I am just used to my`83 Dana 300 getting stuck and hard to get out of 4WD?

Is there a manufacturing company that produces this label? <-- Oops, nevermind, just check out the link.

With enough slop from wear and tear over the years it can be tough to distinguish one position from another.
