Havent had time to get back onto the jeep. Been working on the house and spending time with family. Yesterday at work I had the enjoyment of replacing a dash harness in a 2016 hrv. Made me think I should be working on my wiring since its much simpler.

So a while back I had ordered a gasket kit for my dana 300, the kit never came. I finally got around to ordering another one. Should be here next Monday or Tuesday. If it comes I'm pulling it apart next week. If everything looks good then il re seal it and put it back together, if not I'm ordering more parts. I have a couple different engines on stands in my garage, one of them is a low km 5.0 ford I'd like to use in a different future cj project, my brother in law is cleaning out his storage barn and may have a good np435 4x4 transmission for me. If he does il post some pics when I bring it home.

Happy new year to everyone following along.

Nothing fancy. Just my transfercase sitting on my work bench waiting for the gasket kit to come on tuesday before I tear it apart.

Took one of my spare center sections to work and counted the teeth. Ot was tagged 2.75 and that's what the count worked out too. I have another one I'm gonna check as well. I think the tag said it's a 3.55. Will see when I count the teeth on it. Wanted to make sure neither actually have 4.10 gears in them.

Those things are heavy. The one in my jeep is supposed to be the stronger of the 3 if I remember correctly judging by the ribbing and letters on them. It may or may not have a factory locker in it as well. May be a welded diff. Haven't pulled it yet. After I get the transfercase re sealed and cleaned up I want to move onto re-gearing one of my axles.

Coloring with my son. A rough idea of what the jeep should look like when I shorten the body and the hard top.

Il take some pictures tomorrow but it's mostly apart. Took about an hour to get it apart. First time doing one. Most of it looks good. I need 2 new pads on one of the shift forks and it looks like the bearings have gotten hotter on the rear output shaft. They dont look that bad. But there getting replaced.

Havent orderd the bearings yet. But I've priced out the ones I need. There like 20 bucks a peice which is cheap. I did pick up a can of primer to go on the case and some other parts I have at work waiting for paint.

I like using tremclad. It seems to hold up well as long as you prime and paint it.

Started replacing the shift rail seals. One is done. They have been replaced at some point but don't look like they were installed correctly. A little more corrosion on the rails then I'd like to see, but I can replace them down the road if needed.

The guy I bought the case off of was a machinist and built his own twin stick adapters. He had a hand full of jeeps at his place. I got my cj hood from him as well.

Got the 2nd shift rail seal done. This one was a pain to get out. The shift rail was opened over on a couple of the detents which made it difficult coming out. Got everything filed down and cleaned up and re assembled.

Still have to clean and paint the seal cover for it. That's tommorows job.

Not much work on the jeep. Took some loads of scraps in and got some extra cash. Got a roof rack and a new set winter tires for my crv from work, both for free too.
