Both relatively new rear axle seals failed after a long road trip. Ugh. Time to swap in new seals. FFS, itís always...something...


Crud built up between seal and caliper bracket and we do not do mud, just thick layer of grime.

I finished the wiring of the exterior and interior lighting on the M38A1 this morning and Iím pleased to say it went very well. I plugged things in one fuse at a time and everything worked as it should have with one very minor exception. I had not interpreted the turn signal switch properly so my left and right turn signals were backward. Moved the pins on the Weatherpack connector and everything was right.
Started it up and drove around the block a couple of times. Itís not running great right now, low power at low RPM. Itís also idling rough. I know nothing about the state of the points or condenser. Or for that matter the plugs or wires or coil.
Also the temp gauge and fuel gauge arenít working but I had no expectation of full working gauges. Before I started the only things I knew worked were the volt gauge and the oil pressure gauge.

Get a pad on on that thing and it will be great! Nice work! And to me thatís following the Jeep heritage, ammo can for a center console!

separated this


from this


T177(or 6) going into my CJ from a J truck.. interestingly enough, the adapter to go to the NP208 looks similar to the adapter to go to a dana 300.. we will see when the one I just bought gets in.. hopefully they are the same because I cant figure out how to get this one off... I think it is seized on the dowels..

also, replaced my broken coolant temp sensor.. if you havent ever done that, have the new part ready!!! the coolant is under pressure.. even on a stone cold engine.. luckily, I was sort of ready for it as my buddy told me about that.. but still surprised by how much pressure it was under.. shot up a good 6 inches.. or if my wife is measuring, 12 inches.

I don't remember any dowels aligning the adapter on the back of the t-177.

I'm pretty sure it just holds the rear bearing in place.

and, yes, that adapter looks very familiar.

is there anything other than the 5(ish) bolts that hold the rear adapter onto the trans? is mine just seized on there? trying to figure out how to remove it without destroying it..

Not that I recall.

It could be rust/corrosion on the output bearing but there is only a small part of the bearing that it touches.
I bet they used some real good adhesive on the gasket. I see some squeezing out along the edge.

Does it move at all? Can you seperate it from the gasket? Rotate it a little?

I would hate to use a puller or wedge and then cack the adapter.

There is nothing to hurt other than the rear seal if you want to try a little heat.

it doesnt currently move at all.. I think it might be some gasket and some corrosion.. I have hit with rubber mallet with no change.. tapped (lightly) with a sledge and no change... I started to tap a paint scraper in between the trans and the adapter and got scared of messing it up so i stopped.. might try heat.. but, when i get the new one in thursday, I will compare the two.. if they are the same, I will just give the new adapter to my neighbor.

Good Idea to wait in that case.

Are you going to pull the top off and do some inspection first?

The T-17X is real easy to rebuild.

I probably will.. sitting on the table, it shifts pretty good and feels smooth spinning.. but, will probably, at least, check inside before installing..

Dan at Double D Fabrication finished my new dash. So I guess it's more what he did today than what I did today for my 1976 CJ-7. Does scratching my head thinking what color to paint to go with the rest of the Jeep that's Gloss Black?

Put a helm joint on the clutch adjusting rod. Not as sloppy now, but still get the clutch adjusted correctly. Jeep mechanic comes to help today, but am beginning to fear the problem is internal. Have a big Jeep day planned for Saturday and a trip scheduled for next week.

Finally got to a point where I can start the new engine. Call me crazy but I started it for the first time with the carburetor to set the initial timing. Now I'm installing the Howell TBI.
