My 82








Here she is. Not pretty but the frame has no rust and just a little on the body. Got it for the right price. What do you guys think??

Ok I have a problem and can't figure it out. When i release the clutch and start to take off the whole jeep shakes. It only does it from 0-5 mph. And it only does it if I come to a complete stop if I'm going downhill or something like that it doesn't do it. At first I thought that it was a loose crankshaft pulley but no go. I'm completely stumped. Any ideas??

Check the DS angle, mine does the same thing (I have a yj) I found that if I give it a keep the revs a little higher then I normally do it doesn't shake as bad or at all

Check your U-joints at the axles and at both ends of the t-case. Shaking at low speeds is one sign they may need replacing.

OK another question? Does anyone know what the oil pressure gauge posed to read? Mine says 20 on the gauge and it seems a little low to me but i don't know if its the gauge is going bad or what?

Mine idles at around 5-10 pounds and it goes up as the RPMs get higher (around 5 pounds per 1000 RPMs) been that way since I bought so I guess it's normal haha I would say as long ad yours doesn't drop to drastically you should be ok. More will chime in I'm sure, hope that helped in some way

Check your drivetrain like others sidebut also figure out what gears you have. A weaker clutch may be struggling to get going with the bigger tires. Also check the u-bolts. When I bought mine they were loose.

My engine has only about 5k miles since full rebuild and it doesn't do much better. You should be fine.

The shaking may be a worn tranny mount. I recommend you replace the tranny mount, and probably the engine mounts unless they look absolutely new.

What gear ratio do you have? As said above, if you have high gears (numerically low) you'll need to feather the clutch more to roll from a stop, increasing the likelihood of clutch chatter.

Chatter may also come from contaminants on the clutch disc/flywheel... oil, mud, etc, or from a badly worn disc.

Agree. The rubber tranny mounts wear out quick if there's any play. You may just need to tighten the nut in the middle of the belly pan.
