Tcase out. Both outputs have a pretty good amount of play so may go ahead and rebuild it. Front drive shaft is also shot. Slipyoke has a good half inch of play in all directions.

Take good pictures of the shims and spacers when you take it apart. Mine had some hacks done over the last 40 years or so that made proper reassembly a lot more work and extra money than it should of been.

Trans and clutch out. Going to pickup a cherry picker tomorrow to pull the engine to get to the frame better.

Going to roll the frame back into the garage today after everything dries out and going to start pulling the t-case and transmission later this week. Before I do that I'm going to hook the engine back up to the battery and do a compression test. A few things need to be sealed up on the engine as well. Still a ways to go but making steady progress.

Some more janky wiring by one of the previous owners. Pretty sure it was a kill switch of some kind. It was screwed to the bottom of the steering column.


The master cylinder is so full of gunk I'm not even going to try to salvage it. Not for the 30 or 40 dollars a new one costs.


Throwing down some paint as well. Been doing it one piece at a time. Sanding a body piece one evening and spraying it the next morning before I leave for work. In another week or so I'll wet sand each piece and bust out the polisher.


Downs,

You have a lot of energy...good for you. I was reading the thread and saw the picture of the front grill during tear-down. I was thinking what a great picture. The CJ grill is a beautiful thing. Then a few posts down I see you have already re-painted the grill. Damn, you work fast, and it looks good too. Good luck with the resto.

True that. There’s a lot to be said for inertia! Pick some event in the future as a goal to keep you on track.

Transmission torn down, case cleaned up and painted. Going to have to order at least a new reverse idler gear i think. Maybe a first gear syncro. Not sure what this originally looked like. Going to run it by thr CJ5 forum and see what they say.

If it were me, I would reverse that and replace the syncro and run the gear.

Too late. Comparing the new reverse idler with the old one about a 1/3 of each of the straight cut teeth were worn off. I did replace all the syncro plates and springs with new pieces while I was in there which seemed to tighten up the 1st reverse syncro compared to when I took it apart.
