Not so much today as over the weekend... Had gotten my jeep stuck in water, and filled the tranny with water. Since it was acting up anyway, I pulled it out and had it rebuilt, as well is the t-case. Also installed a JB Converstions Super Short SYE.
I put it back in Saturday, which was a good time, especially when I screwed up the threads on the front transmission cooler line. Took a file and a pick to it and straightened them out. Went to start it up, and heard a great commotion in the bell housing area. As soon as I noticed that, I noticed that it was spitting fluid out of the front pump/converter area. Oh boy! Pulled it back out Sunday and took it down the guy who rebuilt my transmission. He replaced the front seal, and gave me a nifty little tool to align the pump and the splines to aid in putting the converter in. I put it back in Sunday afternoon, started it up and booyah! She ran like a charm!
Now all I have to do is wait on my Tom Woods driveshaft which is arriving tomorrow, and I can put my Mach 1 up for the winter. THANK GOD!!
Side note: On the SYE, JB Conversions say that you need to buy a Chrysler connector kit, but that damn thing is $30!! Being the cheap bastard that I am, I just made up quick disconnects for it and returned the wiring kit. Seems to work just fine. I filled the connectors with dielectric grease, and put some heatshrink around them.
