Changed a T86 to a T98 with overdrive, with a ceramic clutch

Swapped to an aluminum radiator

swapped electric for mechanical fan

rewired front winch

wiring up a rear winch

redid the steering shaft/column















Well it was done over the last few months. Just dialed it in. Next is a new exhaust.

I had to repair a collapsed and cracked LH torque box. An all afternoon job Lift the left side body away from the frame. clean area and straighten as best I could. weld up all the cracks and grind. install a 1/4 inch plate over the mount area and weld to the box. reassemble and shim it a little. Now the tub sits straight again.

Unbelievable

Today I realized that when I put on the Lokar shifter last night I made a small mistake.

So about 5 this morning I'm out there messing with the KD linkage because of the new shifter. It wouldn't shift out of first last night. I think i figured it out because I drove it around a little after messing with it and it seemed to be good. I go in for coffee and a self congratulatory pat on the back. Little did I know...

So there is a leak from the pan where I put the bolts for the shifter linkage. Today I'm thinking, I'll fix that easy and put a trans cooler in front of the radiator at the same time. Pep Boys for the cooler and all that jazz. Get hose instead of the metal lines because it's easier to use.

Set all that up, no problem. Everything goes well until I drop the pan to replace the gasket. There's a piece of the tranny sitting in the pan. WTH??? I call my local guy and ask him, what's up? He looks at a TF727 he's got sitting at the shop and asks me if I pulled the bolt all the way out (for driver's side mounting bracket) when I mounted the Lokar shifter. I said I did, and he told me I made a pretty expensive mistake.

There is a nut on that bolt. You're supposed to get the nut all the way off and just mount the shifter bracket on the bolt as it sits. My bad. I didn't know.

So all day under the jeep and the end result is that it has to go to a trans shop on Monday. $500 easy. At least there aren't any broken parts or anything like that. All they really have to do is put it back together. I'm not skilled enough or have enough time/space to do it myself.

I spent all day under the CJ7 with tranny fluid in my hair, spent over $120, only to have to take it to a shop tomorrow. Only win is that the trans cooler is replaced and in the right spot.

Love it. Having a beer right now. Props to all the dudes out there slugging it out in their garages. Keep it up.

Let me guess, you pulled the band adjusting screw out which dropped the strut to the bottom.

Wheeled it. Flexed the body enough to get the fan into the radiator, tore it to shreds, came home.

Can't figure out how it twisted enough to get into the rad. The motor mounts all look fine, everything seems to move as far as it normally does. I twisted everything up harder than that last weekend, and it came out fine. Now I'm nervous about spending money on a new rad without figuring out exactly what happened.

It's the first time I haven't been able to take the Jeep to work due to a breakdown. Hopefully it storms tomorrow so I won't feel so bad driving the truck.
