Thanks for the advice! I'm on the fence with the 4.56 ratio because I'd like to drive the 65 miles down to the ranch. I want it to be streetable, so I'm not sure.

Yes, they mine this stuff called bentonite nearby. It is a clay used to seal ponds. Not sure if this clay is bentonite, but it just keeps getting thicker and thicker.

I had chunks flying in my lap, inside my collar and down my back, hitting the inside of the windshield etc. I'm definately getting wider flares.

Eric that's some mighty nice country you have down there. If I ever get down that way I want a tour.

Hey I bet you'll be glad to get that transfer shifter going.

I didn't think about that then, but there is enough room between the frame and body to reach in without getting underneath. Thank goodness! I was able to just bend over and reach under to shift.

Free new parts

A buddy told me i could help myself to his burned up 76 Scout Terra. It was in a garage fire, and was a total loss. I drove the 25 miles, and found the truck upside down out in a field. I pulled the axles, D30/D44. Good spares for a CJ.

I was hoping to find a T-19 manual tranny that would bolt right up to the SD33 engine flywheel adapter, but no dice. It was a 3 speed with a D20. I grabbed it anyways, along with pressure plate and clutch.

I snagged the gas tank, and the oil pan since they were still good. Not sure if I'll ever need these parts, but I know the scout II axles are getting hard to find. The disc brake setup is good.

My 4.10 gears are coming today, so plenty of work lined up.

Maybe I dont know what im talking about but I thought scouts came with D44s front/rear?

Scouts didn't get D44s front and rear until 1974 when the Scout II came out, and Scouts had been around for several years prior to that. Scout 80s and 800s were D30 in front. Many of them also had twin stick Dana 18 transfer cases.

No, you guys know what your talking about! I took a better look at the front, and it is a D44. Not a D30. I pressure washed everything today, and the axles are mint except for one of the lockout hubs melted. Couldn't see any other damage except for the rubber brake hose burt up.

Going out now to check the ratio.

Edit: Ratio is 3.54

I used the transfer case shifter from the parts YJ, and adapted it to work for the CJ10. It turned out quite well, and is easy to operate. Even has the detents in the right spot, only backward. What I mean, is you have to move the shifter lateraly to shift into hi range, and should be the other way around.


Anybody know how to get the handle to fit tighter on the shifter? Seems like there must be a rubber piece that went inside the square opening? Don't really want to weld it.

there is, it's called an isolator clip, but; the factory clips are notoriously weak, hard to find, and a tad on the expensive side.


do this instead

tack weld jam nuts to two sides of the base of the handle (like 12 and 3 o'clock) and use machine set screws to secure it. I did my T4 that way, and it worked like a charm (while not being 'permanent)

Hoss,
Yeah, I was researching this very thing this AM, and saw the thread where the set screws were used. I just went ahead and ordered the original parts from QT. It was only $11 or so shipped for the clips and the isolator.
