Thanks for the warning DARKO. Mr. Chilton said a special tool was needed for the task. What is it and where can I get it, or is it one of those rent only items? And since it appears that your familiar with the subject, I've seen rebuilt steering gear boxes for other model CJ's that have the gear box up forward, but I've not seen one for mine, which has it just forward of the firewall. Any advice there? I've had the grub for a month now, biggest improvement to date was trashing the rochester 2g and installing a motorcraft 2150 2V. Solved a bunch of problems.
If the wife didn't hate it so much, I might not love it so much.
