Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Spent this weekend actually driving the Jeep rather than working on it, which was very nice.

way too cozy-- I hadn't realized how worn out my other seats were!!

I took Sunday/Monday this week and got the spare non-disco D30 set up with 4.10:1 and new ball joints. New hubs and shafts are sitting on the shelf awaiting installation as well. I'm holding it 'til I find a Chry 8.25 w/4.10's to complete the set, but I'm a cheap SOB, so it may be a few weeks before something turns up in my price range. As it sits, I still owe the Jeep more than I've spent on it-- I've got $700.00 in it and USAA insurance paid me $1300.00 when some ditz backed into me in a parking lot!! My plans are to use the remaining $600.00 on it and use it as DD for a few more years as a free vehicle..... did I mention I'm a cheap SOB yet?
--Shorty

P.S. the F-bird in the first pic was free too, so I'm looking for someone with good insurance to back into me in that one too, if anyone is volunteering....

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I also drove this weekend. We took a trip to central Texas, Bandera area.






I worked on the Jeep Monday. Looks like there is a leak somewhere in the transfer case. Small leak just enough to get spots all over the back hatch.

Sure! Are you driving to my house, or me to yours? I supposed we could just both leak 1/2 to each.

I recently replaced the chain and like an idiot I reused my output seal, which btw is it the output or the input seal? lol It's the back of the T-case but it is what the drive shaft slides into. Anyway about a week after I replaced the chain I had a really heavy coating of oil on the back hatch.

I got a seal from a local OEM and replaced it in about an hour, if that. I ordered one online for about $14 shipped, the OEM was $34. Now I have two.

Mine isn't leaking around the output seal, it looks like it is coming from the front somewhere. I DUNNO. Replace that rear seal, it's easy.

You just need ATV and a metric socket set.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Halfway sounds good.....that puts us somewhere in what...Alabama? LOL

Yeah it doesn't look too hard at all....and it really only drips a few drops on the ground over night, when it wants to....and I can see a few drops on the rear hatch from that and/or my rear main which needs some attention too.

Just gotta find time between the jobs to work on it.

Was yours an actual seal? Mine almost looks like it's plain ole RTV....

Yes it was...



As you can see the center portion tore out along with the spring.

I had a drip recently, it turned out to be a notch missing from the "O" ring on the speedo sending unit.

Where did you get that o-ring from? I just went through that on my buddy's TJ, and the only place we could find it was the dealer for $7........$7 for a freakin o-ring!

Well it isn't an "O" ring. It's a NP242J transfer case seal. The rear drive shaft goes in it.

Wait, here is what the other one I bought says...
4798117
SEAL/REAR & OUTPUT SHAFT

I got this one from Crown.

Ahhh ok. I didn't get one. I just moved it from the bottom to the top and put some silicon on it.

I can't believe they sell just the "O" ring. I figured you'd have to buy a new transfer case or something. lol
