Well nothing actually got done on the Jeep. But hey it’s not what get done. It’s what you get started. 
I started working on the new drive train. Got what I hope are good rebuildable cores. So I can continue to drive mine while I rebuild everything. Then swap it all in over a couple weeks this summer. At least that’s the plan. 


I’m not completely sure what all I got but it looks like a T90 and a D18. With a Ramsey PTO. And a Ramsey winch. Along with a Dana 25 and a 44.

You know you love it!  LOL
 
The forum really benefits from your projects . .  I really like your meticulous attention to detail on your builds.   Your documentation makes it easier for anyone attempting a similar endeavor in the future.

Thanks Ron.  It is of course a labor of love.  I enjoy learning, and by documenting it here, I don't have to rely on my memory.  I can come back here and see what I'm doing Wink

Replace shifting tower poppet balls and springs. Fab up a set of shifting boots and reinstalled the shifting
tower. First project done. Broke down the steering linkages and disassemble them. Next step is you repaint them and start to reassemble them. Doing that since my main project this year is to replace the
bell crank, hubs and bearing. I guess it is as close to a front rebuild I will get.
Here a photo of how my boots came out.

I got the M-416 done and out of the shop. I have the two Dana 44's up on stands now. Going to combine the two into one nice full floater for the 2A.

I too am starting on a rear D44.  Got it mostly torn down yesterday.  This is my first time doing one of these. I'd be glad to see photos and description of your rebuild project.  Maybe start a thread on it?

Sure thing. I'll add it to my build thread!

Great, thanks nofender.

So far this is the only significant problem I've found.  Some rust on 3 of the pinion gear teeth from sitting.  The rest of the teeth and the ring gear look perfect.  I'm soaking the pinion in evaporust now.  After the rust is dissolved, I'll assess how bad it is and determine if its usable.

Almost nothing to day was a clean up your mess day. After spending a good 3 weeks working on the exhaust system I had piles of cutt off tubing piles of used up sandpaper and other abrasives and my grinding room looked like I had been ignoring it for more then a few weeks. SO I cleaned and cleaned and then I went to ACE and bought another LED shop light to hang between my Drill Press, Lathe and Mill Drill. MUCH BETTER.

I need to figure out what thing I am going to attack next. Thinking finishing up on the brake system. I have it all in place just need to put the stuff inside the Brake Drums and connect all the DOTS. I then should see what I can do about the E Brake setup. I need to connect the two cables from the rear brakes and then connect that to the Cable coming down from the Cane on the dash.

That should get me to Friday when I will start on the throttle linkage (waiting on something coming UPS)

I also could go after the Drive shafts I have done NOTHING with them. least I could do is some serious cleaning. I also need to talk to Six States and see how much they will charge to up grade the tubing on my rear M-38 drive shaft to .120 wall DOM tubing. Balancing a drive shaft is out of my comfort zone. As is cutting the ends off one and welding them on a new tube.

I opened up the transmission and transfer case from my parts Jeep 1.  Looked better then expected, other then the bottom portion of the shifter was broken off. 

 I also got the transfer case to move in 4 spots, 4L, N, 4H, 2H.

Nice weather in southeast Kansas for a change so I took the old girl out. (Ol' Red, not the girlfriend!) Managed to put 13 miles on her which included about 4 miles offroad in low range. Ol' Red performed real well. Nothing will wake you up like driving windshield down in 40 degree weather.

I do need to address a leaking rear transfer case seal. It isn't real bad, but I do think it is a bit worse than it was last fall.

We finished removing the engine from the 3B yesterday. Getting ready to pull apart the transfer case and rebuild that. After that is the clutch, u-joints and whatever else I find that's broken.

I had to work today so I took my M-38 drive shaft along with me to have the drive shaft shop close to my work retube it with some .120 Wall tubing. The counter guy is always rude. And of course I find out they have to have U-Joints in it to be able to do the work. And since I didn't have any in my pockets (haddn't ordered them yet) I get to pay $8 a piece more for them from the shop. I asked how much he says oh $165-180 PLUS your two $18 U joints. SO that will eat up a big chunk. He then tells me that with all the slop in the splines they might not be able to balance it. WELL CRAP the splines are bone dry I washed all the grease out. Put grease in it and its going to be nice and snug again. It has very little play.

So I guess  I find out how it comes out when they get it done.

Always something

Shoot. For $219 Tom Woods will build you a completely brand new one. I can't even recall how any he's built for me. I probably paid for his pool! Ha. Top quality stuff.
