Did you do that yourself? If so, how'd it go? I'm looking at do that same setup in the front.

Over the course of the last week I got my homeowner Snowbear plow mounted using a front receiver hitch type mount. Had to change the very nice brand new front bumper unfortunately Plowed my 200' steep driveway with it, fussing with the plow over and over, which I expected to do. Took about 45 minutes total.

This Jeep is very recent to me and I had only driven it a couple of miles until now, so plowing with it was a real trial by fire.

I found that the oil pressure settled out at 10psi idle and only 20psi at anything above idle on the happy side the temp on my new mechanical gauge was steady at 200 degrees so I was pleased with that. The radiator was obviously old, so I was wondering how it would be.

Also on the downside the clutch was gradually disengaging less and less, by the time I was done I just about couldn't get in to reverse, so I was glad to be finished when I was. I suspect the clutch linkage was bending or seating in to what is probably warn out grooves and oval holes.

The Jeep was a frame off rebuild by the PO who is a very nice guy and a member here. He had only put about 350 miles on it after the rebuild, and he warned me that I would need to go over the entire thing to make sure all bolts are tight, nothing was missed, and so on, so having the clutch linkage issue isn't really a surprise. The clutch was not replaced, so I really doubt the disengagement problem is anything other than the linkage.

The low oil pressure was a very disappointing surprise, but no promises were made about the condition of the engine, so it's just bad luck. I need to contact the PO and see what he knows about the engine, like what it came out of, a guess at mileage if known, if anything that was done to it during the frame off rebuild other than a nice paint job on the engine and the obvious new carb and parts like that. If he reads this, and he probably will, maybe he will PM me with that info

Also the used homeowner plow needs some modifications to work properly both because of some hacks that were done to it sometime in its history, and because it was never designed to be mounted on a vehicle that sits so high up.

It's cool that this thread hit 1000 pages, it's a nice place to post things like this without starting a build thread

Yes, what people call the proportioning valve is really more than that on a disc/drum CJ. It has metering controls so that the disk and drums start brake at the same time. With a disk/disk setup, you don't need the complicated metering delay stuff. Just a simple proportioning valve.

Pictures!

And is the oil gauge mechanical or electric?

Actually I'm lucky enough that my father n law can pretty much do anything. I helped him up till we got the carrier out of the D30. I went to work. Came back the following day and he had it back together. But the instructions do say it's fairly simple.

I recently installed them in both my Dana 30 and 44. They come with easy to follow instructions and the following link is a good reference:http://classicbroncos.com/aussie_locker.shtml

Put my Jeep to work for a change.


That's what I keep it for.

Ignore the junk, I'm cleaning out the barn.

The one dumpster is full of mixed steel.

The rattling is the driver side window rattling in the frame.

We went out driving in the snow/ice and made a Jeep commercial... ok, so not really, but a couple of the shots ended up looking like something you might have seen in a Jeep brochure.

Thanks, it's one of the places we often visit on our open to the public trail rides here at the Ranch called Flat-Rock Falls or Hole in the Rock Falls. Just down a trail that runs along that small creek it opens up into a much larger creek that has a solid slab rock bottom you can drive out onto (wide and only about a foot deep) which then flows over a small step falls as it narrows back down and there is a swimming hole. Actually reminds me that I still need to upload the videos from when Destination Polaris the TV show where they go on trail rides to highlight places where people can to go trail riding with their ATV, SxS, and UTV. They came here and filmed an episode for their upcoming season here at the ranch. We had to promise that we would not upload them to YouTube until it was almost time for the 2014 show season to start airing on Fox Sports Networks.
