I have a 1988 YJ 2.5L and am I right to assume that it has the AX5 tranny? If so, is there a kit available to convert from the internal clutch slave cylinder to an external? Is this something I should do? I believe the slave is working properly but the bearing is definitely making noise. I have less that 800 miles on the new (slave/throw-out) that was purchased at a local box store (oreilly's) and it's already making noises. Any suggestions or opinions are greatly appreciated. Steve
Hi Moses, I hope you can point me in the right direction, I’m nearing the end of a very thorough four year restoration of a 1942 Willys Jeep which I had shipped from San Francisco in 2008. I’ve made great effort to keep it all looking as correct as possible and do the best job I can. As I’m not a mechanic by trade, I farmed the gearbox and transfer case out. Now it’s in and running, there is a horrible noise from first and reverse, so I’ve resigned myself to pulling it all out and doing a post mortem. Naturally I’m more than disappointed as it’s a day away from being ready for the road and now summer is over here in London. The reason I’m contacting you is that I have your excellent Jeep CJ 1946 - 1971 Rebuilder’s Manual, which has been very useful on some of the mechanical issues. I decided that if I have to pull the drive train out again, then maybe I’d sweeten it by doing the Centreforce clutch conversion you mention on page 242. I’m assuming this will work on the MB. If so my question is, can you tell me exactly what is necessary regarding machining the Pinto clutch, and how you would mount the pressure plate in a lathe. There is a small garage down the road with a machine shop, and have found a Centreforce distributor in South East England, I just need to know exactly what is required to make it work as it seems such a great idea. Any information you can give will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Douglas.
