  1. Moses Do you know what the bolts on these units are torqued to? I assume not much being it's aluminum. Thank you JF
  2. Looking for information on how many leafs were in my front and rear springs. I dont have the original ones anymore. Also are the lengths the same for 55-71 ? Someone gave me decent used ones but the rear are 10 leafs, fronts are 8. I kind of remember my originals were 10 front and 9 rear but not sure 1967 CJ5 with V6 dauntless engine
  3. My E brake drum looked like it was in perfect condition until I hit it with the blaster and found a crack...more money to spend
  4. I went and disassembled everything. Looks like I need both oil seals and sprocket. I see I can get a weld a sprocket and hub but there are different pitches to the sprockets and different chain number's. Any idea what to get ?
  5. Had some down time so I decided to clean up the PTO. I degreased everything then took a wire wheel in a drill and " polished " everything up. Not sure if this came painted black from the factory or bare but I am liking the contrast with the bare aluminum and the black transfer case. Anyway, is there any info around on rebuilding these PTO's as well as the front mounted factory winch ? Where to get parts, seals, gaskets ??
  6. Yes, I coated splines on inside of yoke with Permatex gasket shellac. Here is the copper form a gasket I used
  7. I painted the driveshaft yoke and put on the felt seal Used an impact gun to install washer and nut A little reminder to me to torque the nut after the case is mounted and I can get some leverage
  8. This is art to me I'm a bit weird I guess but I love turning rusty greasy things new again. This is how far I got. More to follow
  9. Next I installed the poppet balls and springs in the front bearing cap. Before I installed these the shafts moved easily. After, I couldn't budge them, I hope that is correct since they are designed to keep the shafts from moving around freely. The order the go is ball, spring, cap. Rear cap seal installed Locking plate for main shaft I hated to cover up all this nice work gasket shellac then oil pan gasket then more shellac I couldn't find what to torque the oil pan bolts so I torqued to 25 lbs
  10. I saw on several sites to use the copper form a gasket spray on the shims. I sprayed on a few coats then let it get tacky. Besides whats a Jeep if it doesn't leak a bit :-)
  11. Yes, it was supposed to be in the kit. They sent another out today. Lets hope end play is correct, I'm not a good waiter
  12. Placed the shaft into the case then slid dowels in a bit to hold it in place. Put some oil on the shaft and slid it in. If all goes right it should push the other dowels out Shaft in
  13. Next I put the roller bearings into the intermediate shaft I put a wood 1 3/16"dowel 2 5/8" long into the shaft to hold everything in place, started with first washer I coated the inside of the shaft with assembly grease to hold the bearings in place. I put the 24 bearings in next, then another washer, next 24 bearings then final washer Used the assembly grease to hold thrust washers in the case, tabs go into the grooves in the case to prevent them from spinning, bronze side to shaft. I used dowels on each side to hold in place
  14. Removed the front cap and installed the seals putting in interlocking pin Where it should be when recessed in shaft I used gasket shellac from Permatex to seal the gaskets Bearing cap installed again
  15. Thanks Mose's More to follow. Let me know if you see something that should be done different
  16. Next I fussed with the shims for a bit until I got it right, Needed to do this to clean out the paint in the threads. Should have done it to all the bolt holes before starting. After some curse words I got the end play right 0.005 with the rear cap torqued to 35 lbs Speedometer gear slid onto shaft, I realized I could have left this off as long as I put it on before installing the oil seal Shims sprayed with copper spray-a-gasket and allowed to get tacky Bearing cap installed and torqued to 35 lbs. The only bolt I used sealer on at this point was the short one, i
  17. Next I slid the bearing onto the shaft. Gently tapped it in with a deep socket Next the bearing cup Got it flush with the case, the bearing cap will seat it the rest of the way. Temporarily put the bearing case on with the gasket, no sealer, so I can check the end play in the shaft. I will take this off later to seal the gasket and put on for good. Very important to snug the bolts in a cross pattern so you don't twist the case and break it.
  18. Next the sliding gear goes into the case and on the shift fork Output shaft gear next Next slide the output shaft thru the gears Next I slid the thrust washer onto the shaft making sure the tab goes into the groove in the shaft that goes all the way back thru the gear Next the snap ring Washer and snap ring installed
  19. When I painted the case I painted the whole thing then took an orbital sander and sanded the mating surface's this way I can see the high spots Next the longer shaft with the shift fork goes in I used the old bearing and a deep socket to put on the new bearing on the output shaft
  20. Next I slid in the output clutch shaft into the same bearing. Next the short shift fork and shaft Next the output clutch gear
  21. Starting the assembly, First I laid everything out so I am not fishing for parts when I need them. Started by installing speedometer gear Then I put in bearing and snap ring in front cap I used a seal installation tool to seat the bearing Bearing and snap ring installed
  22. I read an article by Rick Stiver about rebuilding the T-90 and he ran into the same issue with the spacers not being flush with ends of countershaft. He recommends adding a washer to each side to bring them close to flush, so thats what I did. The front countershaft washer missing from the kit aggravate's me but after looking at my old one and the damage I decided to wait for a new one.
  23. Mose's, 2 questions. After installing the spacers and needle bearings in the cluster shaft the spacers are not flush with the ends of the shaft as stated they should be in your book. With one side flush the other side is recessed 1/8 of an inch. Is this normal with the T-86 ? It only uses 44 needle bearings and 4 spacers as the T-90 uses 88 bearings and 6 spacers. All the new parts match the old ones exact. Also, the rebuild kit is missing the Front counter shaft washer the goes on the front of the cluster gear ( large side ) my old one is slightly damaged from the needle bearing space
