    • So - you had Hydramat in your fuel cell when we were in Harlan and you "had plenty of gas"?

        • About Feb. 2017, I was noticing a growling noise coming from the drivetrain. I first thought it was the from wheel bearings, and then figured it was coming from the trans/T-case. I removed the rear cover off the NV4500 and replaced a snap-ring that the internet said was the problem. That fixed it for about a week.



          Then I discovered the noise went away when the trans was in 3d gear. Well, it turned out that the 'Pro" shop that rebuilt the trans, before I got it, didn't do such a great job. THe rear output bearing and rear countershaft bearing were both spinning in their bores. To boot, they had beat the 1st gear onto the main shaft, damaging it's thrust bearing surface. Oh-- and none of the bearings seemed to have been preloaded anywhere close to spec

          Some new parts, some creative bearing indexing, new tools (finally broke down and bought a arbor press) and some green loctite later, it is good as new.



          and just for fun, some pics of a vintage NJJC shirt, back & front

          • Harlan, in the rain, last Spring. It is amazing how sticky those rocks are when the are wet. We crawled almost everything


            I came home from that Harlan trip and for the first time, the Jeep didn't need any major work- YAY! So with the passenger complaints echoing in my ears, I got around to installing that passengerside door bar.


            Upgraded the 'icecube' relays to some automotive grade stuff.

            then it was on to some double-shear hi-steer arms.

            and this happened.
