I had a brake light fail on me. You know what turned out to be the problem ? The contact on the bulb was worn. On the bottom of the bulb.

Added a Jerry can and entrenching tool. This would be similar to the one that I carried. About the same year as the CJ5.

Just counted the ring and pinion: 39/11= 3.54 gears.

This is the pinion, right? Told you I'm a novice. The giant etched "35" should have been an indication, lol. Couldn't find a stamp on the ring. Guessing its been replaced? These are the only markings I found:

3.54 gears sounds about right for your 1976 CJ-5 as the originals that came with it from the factory. And yes, that is the pinion gear.

Just last evening I replaced all the cheap rubber spring spring bushings on my rear leafs. The Crown rubber replacement parts are really starting to piss me off. Between bushings, shifter boots and other crappy rubber pieces, they suck as a company.

I bought a Crown chain for my quadratrac, and it lasted a total of four hours before stretching so bad that it started jumping teeth. I will give thier customer service credit though, they gave me a easy refund without even having me return the chain.

Yea, first thing I did was swap out the bulb. I saw some butt connectors under there. No time like the present for some flush mount lights I guess.

The 35 etched into the head of the pinion is not the ratio. Each matching gear-set will have its own ideal checking distance. Often (but not always) a pinion will be marked with a figure that shows, in thousandths of an inch, the difference between the nominal distance and that gear-setís ideal distance.

So in your case, your pinion would be .035 off of the neutral setting (Distance from center of case bearing to head of pinion).

In a pinch I had put some power steering fluid in my power steering pump so today I drained it , filled it with atf (like you're supposed to) , turned the wheel back and forth a few times to cylce the fluid, drained it again, and then refilled with atf. I also epoxy'd a knob on blower switch

ATF in the power steering instead of power steering fluid?
Interesting.

What does ATF do for a power steering pump? Is it better??

I think my pump was whining with the power steering fluid. My Chilton manual says replenish your pump with Dexron II automatic transmission fluid. Thats the main reason I put it in there.
