Fantastic! No such thing as too many pics posted and I'm in for the long haul on this one....especially if it turns out as nice as Keith460's (or Exposed, or 243, or Coiz, or...the list goes on)

I can only hope that it turns out as nice as theirs...I'm pretty anal retentive, so we'll see.

So I didn't get a thing done yesterday...went home from work sick with a fever and Montezuma's Revenge. I'm going to take the interior out today. I also want to take the drivetrain out, but I have a few questions:

1) Would it be wiser to take the body off first, then take the drivetrain out?

2) When taking the drivetrain out, would you take it out as one unit, or would you take engine out first, then take tranny and transfer case out?

I'm kinda leaning towards taking the engine out by itself, because I can then put it right on the engine stand.

3) What size bolts do I need to secure the engine to the stand? I know I'll be using Grade 8, but I've heard that there are different sizes on the block.

Camera is charged, so I'll post pics tonight.

Fred

I'd take the body off first, then the drive line. It'd make separating them easier, since I like your idea of going directly to the engine stand.

Hello Fred,




I've done following in 4 days (alone):



1- Tub (need to be 3 at least)
2- Engine
3- exhaust + gas tank + gas line + brake line
4- tranny + transfert case + axles shafts
4b- powersteering/steering
5- then Front and rear axle

Of course, take a LOT of pics and ... share them

BTW, you write a very good french!

Regards,

Gilles

Gilles,

Je suis Américain et Français...ma mère est Arlésienne. Elle est venue aux Étas Unis en 1968 comme professeur d'échange et a marié mon père en 1972; ma tante vie toujours à Arles.

So, based on your and Cutlass327's suggestion, I'm going to take the body off first. I have a New Holland tractor, so I can pull it off myself...it'll lift 850lbs with no problem, and I don't think the tub weighs anywhere near that.

With the tub off, I'll have free access to disconnect the engine from the tranny and then pull it and put it on the engine stand. Then I'll take the drive shafts out and then the tranny/transfer case. The fuel tank will follow after that, then it will just be a matter of taking the tires/wheels off, putting the frame on jack stands and dropping the axles.

Power steering is already off...I had free access to it, when I took the fenders and grill off.

Okay, so that's my battle plan.

Thanks guys.

By the way, Gilles, I love that song, but my CJ is The Jeep With No Name because of my hero:



Fred

Agree... and I'd pull the drivetrain as one. It's easier to separate when you're not lying on your back.

Fred take the body off first then move to the engine, tranny and transfer case. Then start on the axles and everything else attached to the frame. You're going to powder coat the frame so what works pretty good is to get that done first then start on your axles, cleaning, refurbishing and paint. That way as you get things ready to go bak together you can bolt them onto a nice clean frame.

with the exception of John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn, it is virtually impossible to beat Clint in any of his westerns...well, I can't forget about Slim Pickens in Blazing Saddles...

oh, and subscribed because of ALL the pictures!

Got some more work done today, but not as much as I would have liked. Then again, I have high expectations of myself. Took the interior out, then the JK steering column and wheel (from a '93 Cherokee), then the dash, wiring and heater. Found a whole bunch of leaves in the heater box, which you can see a bit of a blurry pic. Also found a date stamp on the back of the heater box, November 17 1975. I'm pretty sure the heater core's never been replaced either, but it will be.

Taking this stuff out was a lot easier than I thought it would be. One of my heater cables needs to be repaired, but it's nothing that epoxy can't fix.

I'd like to be able to salvage the dash, so I'm going to find a piece of metal and weld it in where the PO cut out an opening for the aftermarket radio. I'm pretty sure that the "Made in Taiwan" speaker mounted on the firewall isn't original either.
