Be sure to slant you build to your proposed use. A lot of guys sit with an offroad mag between there thighs and stare at the glossy pictures while ordering a bunch of totally useless crap. Put together a build sheet to chart what you need and to keep you on track.
I like to group my work so I don't have to go back two or three times.
IE rear axle complete. This includes all brakes, springs, and bushings.
Front axle complete. Includes all above and any steering components.
Engine, transmission, t case complete.
ETC.




Many times the second groove ran an AIR pump.
That being said, you should be able to run two belts. This was not an uncommon set up on older luxury cars, usually on the AC. If the belts are the same size and from the same manufacture, they should be able to be tightened without any issues.
That is some good advice....I'll try to get something on paper soon... right now the goal is simple. Just hear VROOM. And sustain it hahahah

It can only be one of two things....
The belts are different sizes. Feel free to measure them.

One of the pulleys are a different size.
The good part is in reality, you should only need one belt.

Did the stock setup require two belts?... I'll measure them for sure, and ill run it with one belt if it has to be that way, but if it had two belts on the stock setup ill try to get it back to that.

I’m with JDaddy, I think that second belt is a different size Or one of the pulleys is a different diameter. Swap the belts to see if they tension the same front to back and you’ll know quickly.

Welcome and I too would like one of those beers!

There should be no second belt. Your last pic clearly shows there's only one belt channel on the power steering pump pulley. IIRC, the third belt channel on the crank pulley is for optional AC, which you don't have. Just remove the second belt and forget about it.

I got to spend a little time with the CJ today. A friend of mine helped me reset the timing, an we were able to get her idling normal and as far as I could tell sounding pretty good.

Since I jumped that hurdle I decided to put her on the lift and check out the "axle issue". I was told when I got it that one of the amc axles had stripped. I decided to have a look to confirm the problem before purchasing new axles. I couldnt get the current axles out to have a look. I did a YouTube search to find a good video of how these things come out, but didnt see anything that made me feel good about what I'm doing. Do you guys have any links to some sort of instruction to pull these axles?

Here's some pictures of the current situation haha

I installed the Moser 1-piece axles on mine (with no issues), and have buddies who have installed the Yukon and the G2 systems with no complaints either. You definitely have options on this front-

You can try a slide Hammer as well, or even bolt your brake drum on backwards and give it a few whacks with a type 1 BFH.

Use the type puller Jeepdaddy2000 posted. Using anything else and you risk bending the axle flange trying to separate them. If you plan on swapping to one piece axles, there's another way to get them off. Undoing the backing plate and cutting the axle bearings caged rollers apart will get the axles out but not apart.

Would it be smarter to just try to get ahold of a set of wide track axles and put them in as opposed to repairing these axles?
