no garage= top never coming off.
i got sick of tarping it .
it's raining right now.
and my seats are dry...
I totally understand that bill. Our last house didn't have a garage, it stinks. Fortunate enough now to have one and a car port hooked to it. So the jeep sets there when not in use.
I keep waiting for herms kit to be on my porch when i get home from work.
When you get it in let us know how it went. I am looking into doing the rebuild as well.

i found this and it will be a BIG help.
I bookmarked it.... thanks Bill!!
that was a nice link.. thanks!
I just put a carpet kit in with rubber floor mats.
with all the proper air tools,seal pullers,press etc.
and my buddy helping me.
it took 4 hours to get to removing the i shaft.
only to find out (wait for it)
i bought the wrong one.
the jeep is tarped sitting in a meadow with all the dismantled parts in a box on the seat.
i am not complaining.
it was my fault.
once i get this t/c rebuilt.
i am not working on it anymore.
this is i think the 5th time that i bought the wrong parts and got mad at an inanimate object.
this winter i will hire someone to install a O/D.
the intermediate shaft had shallow grooves worn in it.
but the gears and everything else looked great.
i have never seen the inside of a tranny or a t/c before..
What size shaft did you buy?
needed 1 1/4
you're being too hard on yourself
the first time is always the hardest
you're gaining knowlegde along the way
calm down and take a breath
X2! You're doing fine in my book. :hurrican:
it's been a couple hours.
yep i am calm.
and i knew i was in over my head and it would very probably turn into yet another labor intensive P.I.T.A.
that takes weeks instead of an hour or two.
why would this particular task be any different than all the other ones?
my hot rod guru was picking on me.
hey man i should hire you to be pi$$ed off for me....
You will do fine bill.:tea:
As long as you have the TF apart, get the spline and tooth count recorded so you order the right OD.
