Elbe or Evans Sunday 7/21
 
Just installed a new transfercase and Rcv's looking to put a run together and test em out! Any one interested?

Might be. I need to crawl under mine and see what the ATF puddle is all about.

Puddle?? Hopefully just dripping from the pan. An easy fix. Would be fun to wheel with you again Bob.

i would be down to go hopefully with the lift if not as long as its not in the shop

nwbronco 07-13-2013 08:46 AM

Definitely a puddle. I am going to get under it tomorrow.

Get it figured out Bob?

Front drive shaft is toast. Edge of transmission pan was getting smacked by the drive shaft right at the slip seam. The transmission pan and drive shaft need replacing. Hopefully the transmission housing has survived.

Hunting for parts now.

Pan at dealer was cheapest and easiest when I replaced mine (believe it was 70 for pan and gasket, an extra 10 for filter and 30 for synthetic ATF), probably source front drive shaft at local junkyard.

nwbronco 07-15-2013 02:40 PM

Thanks. Local yards keep nothing in the Wrangler parts. I have found a couple on line.

TripleNickle 07-16-2013 04:37 PM

Yeah let do it! Let me know. Who where the others? Any one I know?

nwbronco 07-16-2013 09:16 PM

Rich and Jason. I think you have wheeled with all of us the one time. Anyways, I am right on the boarder now. I have Capitol Driveshaft looking at my driveline right now. We'll see how it goes. Six States cannot even get to it until next week.

nwbronco 07-17-2013 07:19 PM

Officially out. Local shop wants $800 to fix me up. I can order from Adam's but won't see it in time for Sunday. Dang.

TripleNickle 07-17-2013 10:46 PM

nwbronco 07-18-2013 10:10 AM

Skawt 07-18-2013 03:09 PM
