Using the Harbor freight spot weld drill. It works fine.
Does anyone know the name of this part and where to get one? Thanks!
Finished my battery tray repair!
Finished (to the best of my possibilities) the front axle. Painted and mounted. Sleeved the yoke and ring and pinion adjusted. All seals and bearings replaced. Let's see how it runs.

My front bumper!
BTW, it will be a while before I tackle the rear axle. I built a home made case spreader that works ok. If anyone is interested, I can loan it.
Classic Enterprise should have the fender well brace.

Any idea how to remove the rear angle? I need to replace the back corner and the floor. Any help is appreciated.
Some great progress.
I have one I just removed and won't be using it. PM me if you're interested and we can figure it out.
Rear driveshaft. Before, sandblasted and finished!
Making my own jam nuts...
Trying out my tie rod end conversion. It looks fine from here!
Just completed the exact same knuckle restoration on my 61- cj 5. Went with grade 8 bolts and lock washers for the spindle and backing plate and made sure the length was not too long. I think the length was 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 inches long. I put new spindle bushing in and the flange was too thick on the bushing and had to remove some of the flange thickness on the lathe and hone the inside in order for the axle to fit properly. If not the snap ring on the end of the axle will not go on. The snap ring is there to keep axle from moving in and out and to keep the hubs working properly. Some of the parts you get are not exactly the correct size and some modifications are necessary for everything to fit properly , as you have already found out. My front bearings that were sent to me were wrong size, ended up going to local parts house with originals and matched numbers. Good luck !
