Well today was a family day but did manage to knock out a few small things. Pulled everything out of the parts washer / bucket filled with gas. Cleaned off the bottom cover and bolts. Cleaned the gasket surfaces and installed the bottom cover gasket with some rtv. Also cleaned up the other small parts. Going to wait a few days for the rtv to completely cure then its paint time for the tcase.

Nothing but cold and real work going on the last week. Ordered the last of my parts today.
  • flywheel
  • clutch kit
  • 4 new lifetime warranty ujoints
  • flywheel bolts
  • 2 Dana 20 yokes to replace a worn 300 yoke and so that I can use ubolts instead of straps
  • inner clutch spring
  • 2 tcase shaft bushings
So this weekend high of 55 and 65 with sun so I am going to finish cleaning and painting and next it should all go back up!

Well another day and some more progress.

Started off wire wheeling and cleaning the skid plate / cross member.



One little concern I have it how wallowed out some of the bolt areas are. This the worst one, but I figure a few bigger washers should do the trick.



Followed that up with some tcase painting. Got it primed and painted aluminum.



My plans are tomorrow to tape off the front and rear "horns" as well as the large inspection cover and painting the rest black.

Cleaned my nasty bell house.



Two coats of primer and 4 coats of paint on the bell house and skid plate / cross member.





After that washed the rest of my small parts including bolts, clutch fork, spacer and inspection plate, tranny mount, tcase shifter, and the other little tcase shifter linkage parts.

I then turned my attention to drive shafts. When taking everything down I found my front was bent. LSUtiger had this extra front drive shaft that has had a 3 inch spacer welded in.





Started by pulling the ujoints out. Just to document how to do it for those who dont the easy way is with snap ring or needle nose pliers, 2 sockets and a mall. One socket should be larger that the ubolt cap and the other smaller. Start by removing the snap ring from each side. The place the smaller socket above the ujoint cap and the larger below.



Tap the top socket until the bottom cap has pushed out. Sometimes you can just pull the cap out with your fingers but on this rusty old one I have to use vice grips to twist them out.



After you get one side done flip it over and do the same thing. After both caps are off the ujoint should slid out. Once the joints were out I went about grinding on the welds from where the 3 inches was added to make it look a little better.



After that I repeated the same steps on the rear drive shaft.



So now over the next week all I need to do is a little painting each day and I should be ready for putting it back up next weekend.

Love the u joints... They look, well, dry... Mine just fell off when I took them off the yokes for the t-case because they were so dry... Definitely a good argument for greasable joints!!!

Good progress, keep it up!!!

After I started to paint I thought about welding a washer in there but decided it was to late. I'll just bolt a larger on in and it it ever becomes a problem address it at that time.

Thanks Jim, just wished the top matched the bottom! Once this is all back I plan on driving and wheeling here for a while and just doing little weekend projects. Guess my next big to do will either by a 360 swap or body work and paint.

So a little more painting and such today. Decided I am sol on my front drive shafts. One is bent and the other has way to much play on the yoke end. So once I get everything together I guess I will see how much and if a shop can fix them or order a new one. Figue I will wait so I can make sure I know what lenght I need with my lift. Also found that my clutch fork is done as well and needs replacement. The little x that you can see in the picture below is all the way through and you can see light it you hold it up towards the sky. Their cheap just more parts.



Got my rear drive shaft as well as most of my small parts and bolts primed and painted.





My tranny and bellhouse posing for a picture.



Lastly finished painting my tcase. I am very happy with the way it turned out.





Still maybe a small hand full of small parts to paint which I hope to have done here and there through the course of the week. Picked up my fly wheel, clutch kit, and ujoints from advanced today. As long as I can order a clutch fork and my d300 yokes, clutch spring, tcase handle bushings, and flywheel bolts from 4wd all come in this week I should be putting it all back up next weekend.
