OK how about these babies:
3/4 ton FORD dana 60 front and Dana 70 rear axles with 4.10 gears, they look real clean and beefy, are Dana 70 axles hard to find parts/seals/etc. for?

Hi. I've been looking for a v-belt 2 groove ps pump pulley (1 large, 1 small for an emission pump), like in your pictures. Would you consider swapping with me for a single groove version?

Thanks,
Frank

As far as I know, the pulley is used on applications with an emissions pump and possibly a snow plow setup. The a/c comp goes on the other side of the engine.

Have you seen these: http://www.cvfracing.com/AMC-Jeep-Wa...-p/amcl2wp.htm

Would they work for you?

I just am not comfortable with swaping a part I know little to nothing about. I guess ignorance breeds fear.

I saw a double pulley on the alternator using two belts to that pulley in a 304 pic and I was wondering if stock mine came that way and I need to add a belt?

Also I have a line on a 06 Jeep Wrangler stock suspension parts (replaced with a lift kit) for cheap $100. How hard is a it to convert a CJ-7 leaf spring setup to this Wrangler spring setup?

Dude, you need to slow down and use the search function. Lots of good info on axle swaps there. I spent months, if not years deciding what I wanted. All of that time was used for research. You'll get a lot more coherent reponses if you do the research first (just like on your KBS coatings) and then ask specific questions. Nothing on a CJ needs a monster impact. Main bearing caps get torqued to 80 ft/#s if I remember correctly. Use the impact to take things apart. Buy and use a torque wrench. You'll need a few of them. I'd look at the crank as well as the cap to make sure it's not damaged. The neighbors are gonna love you once they get a look at all the Jeep stuff all Jeep builders acquire and that doesn't fit in the garage.

I have researched axle swaps for about 3-4+ months now, before I bought my Jeep I started looking. Its time to start to look into buying some replacements. I am taking my time but I am ready to find a good set of axles and I have decided on old Chevy 3/4 or 1 ton axles with the help of members out here. Now I just need to get a person to sell me some or go to our pick a part junkyard and find some which I am in the process of doing right now.

I also used the "Right Stuff" (Permatex) and this blue racing sealant (I forget the name) I researched which helped make everything go perfect (more research on sealants lots of research) for the oil pan and rear main bearing seal installation.

Trust me I am taking my time and doing my research on everything I do not need to slow down on the contrary I am taking a very long time to make decisions.

I own a torque wrench and I torqued my main bearings to 80ft/#s too. I did plenty of research on the replacement of the rear main beering seal and I did it perfect with 1 mistake. I had to loosen all of the bolts to get the seal out per my research and it worked great the seal came out easy. You didn't read correctly or I didn't state what happened clearly while loosening all the bolts I accidently tighted 1 instead of removing it with my Ingersol Rand which tighted it to like 1200 ft/#s on accident. Also it was at a little angle (The oil pickup was in the way some) and the Ingersol Rand could not get it loose so I had to get the bigger impact wrench which took it right off. I definitely was using the impaact wrenches for removal/loosening only. I used my torque wrench for tightened per my research.

I also did new oil pan seals and the leak from the rear main seal is now fixed no leak there at all. I have read other threads where people cannot get it back together without leaks and had to redo it. I got it right the first time I was proud of that and my wife was a great helper.

Thanks for the advice on the crank and cap.
