Suggestions on '63 CJ-5?
Hey fellow Jeepers, I just bought a 1963 Willy's and it's in pretty good shape. I Have always been ok with mechanics, but I'm stumped on this one.. I drove it around for about a week, and then it just quit going. When I put it in gear and let the clutch out, it just makes a weak sort of grinding sound. It sounds like it is coming from the bell housing? I have checked all my linkage and everything seems to work fine, there is a pto driven winch on the front, and I made sure it was disengaged. Could it be the clutch? If so, do I have to pull the engine or drop the tranny to get to it? I have a V6 engine and a three speed transmission with a high/low splitter lever and a transfer case lever and low and high 4x4 lever, so there are four shift levers coming through the pan. I've had the top end of the transmission open from inside and everything looks good, plenty of gear oil in everything including the differentials. I'm just not sure on this one. Any help?
