This^ and if its a 258 the rear of the valve cover was supporting a large amount of weight, by resting against the firewall.
If its the 258, hopefully you didn't crack the cover, or punch a hole in it with the stud and nut thats directly behind it. You'll know as soon as you drive it. Watch for oil under the jeep.

in first and in third it pops into neutral. if i hold the stick in place it doesn't happen.. could it be the worn gears? it has a 3 inch body lift and wonder if thats affecting it some.. the clutch was adjusted problem fixed another one develops. its ok.. this cj5 was neglected by the previous owner and sat untouched for about 6 months. I have turned it around and look forward to fixing it up..

The drain plug in picture 3 is the drain for the transfer case, not the transmission.

Hey. It's been sometime since I looked at this post. This last year was a learning experience.
The jeep is cherry now. Got in close with my local lil shop and inspired them to help me out. No labor charges. I just paid for parts. I live on a very small island in Hawaii. So since my last post here's what the jeep went through:
1. Rebuilt the 304 and T150
2. Replaced the mix matched center force 1 and 2. The folks who had the jeep before me made the error. Never saw that happen before and not sure if it's even possible. Put in a stock clutch.
3. The front axle was sitting behind center so we move everything up 2 inches.including the engine.
4. Replaced the shackles. They were in the wrong place. This gave me 2 more inches and a smoother ride.
5 After moving and reweldjng the front end. My drive shaft was to short. We found that a cJ7 drive shaft was a correct fit.
6. After all that and getting back on the road. The first day and in break in period for the engine. Stripped out the rest end at the splines. Reaves with an Alloy one piece axle. It's beefy now.
7. Replaced the dash and all new Autolite meters
8. Took out the Holley and added the Edlebrock Performer.
9. New battery
10. New headlamps
11. Overhaul on my wiring as well

Since this.i have not been able to get stuck. She handles anything I throw at it.

The next upgrades for 2014:
Will upgrade the drums to disc brakes
Next month I'm adding a better damper system for the steering and new steering shaft from Borgeson. Heavy duty!
Adding a DUI ignition
