I figured I would show some pictures of my work this weekend.
I pulled off the differential covers and found a LOT of water and some gooooo that used to be differential fluid.
My questions are this.
I have a 1976 CJ-5 with a AMC20 rear and a D30 front.
I know water is bad in there, but what am I looking for when I take this apart to see if it is bad? It is my first time taking apart differentials on a 25+ year old machine. My 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 looked nothing like this.
Secondly, I am figuring this is unlocked from what I see in the pictures, but let me know if I am wrong.
Thirdly, I need to find out what gears I have in there. I am not sure if they have ever been replaced.
And lastly, my humor for the day. You have to stay positive when you are sinking tons of money into your love.
Thanks for the info.
