Is that most likely a bad input bearing or is that how it's supposed to be? It's not like loose slop. You actually have to make it move and wiggle it ill post a video in a little bit but Here's some pics.

Nice find! Yeah, you should be able to wiggle the input shaft around. That's normal.

Pulled the engine and took the heads off to go to the machine shop.

So I was finishing my transfercase drop, had to fab up a nut for inside the frame rail, when I decided to look around underneath.

Never trust your PO!!! So I was fixing a known issue with the feul line routing under the oil pan. When I noticed I was missing one of 3 block bolts for the motor mount, Ok no big deal. Then I happened to look at the otherside and noticed it was missing BOTH nuts on the bushing to frame mount. Basically my big torquy 360 was held in by it own hulking mass and 2 1"x3/8" bolts.

Well I remedied that situation. Peeked at the front porch and realized my extended brake lines werent in yet and closed up the garage. Not a big day but i feel better about something I didnt know i should worry about.

Thank you so much for replying! It's only about an 1/8" of play so I think it'll be fine! I'm getting a Dana 300 from a guy this weekend with a skid plate and driveshaft. Paying 100 for everything.

Moved the body on the frame 3/4" to get my clutch bellcrank to line up properly. How the heck the PO slammed it over like this is beyond me...

Decided to use a 10Klb ratching strap as a come-along chained to the nerf bar to pull the body over. It actually worked!

First the problem (notice the hole alignment on the bell housing):

Then the miraculous solution:

The jig to do the job (I really didn't think this would work):

I spray painted my recently new brake drums black and tried adjusting the brakes.

After many hours of work sorting out the hacked up wiring, installing a new HEI distributor, setting the timing, installing a new fuel tank, hard lines, filters etc, my Dad's CJ5 is running great!
