Fixed my junk!

Got the 90 on the road again! WOOOHOOO! Finaly, the new T-case is great, with the extra low low range I can put it in first low and it is unstopable! I can smash down on the breaks as hard as I want and it keepe going forward! Can't wait to get it out on the trail! Hope it don't break again for a while. Oh and I still need to get it inspected, it was dues in January!

Mike - I know we've never met and only know of each other because of this board, but even with that small knowledge I'm happy you finally got 'er finished.

I wonder if this means all the "When Mike gets it finished" jokes will stop (if they're really jokes). Of course, now those "Mike will help you when he's finished" comments won't be jokes!

Mike, that's great!! I envy you with that crawler set. I WANT ONE!! How much did that end up setting you back and did you get it directly from Ashcroft or through some distributor?

Now we can start up with the "After Mike hits a mud puddle, he'll have time again" jokes.

HEY! No more big mud puddles! And no the jokes (they are all jokes ) won't stop I just broke a U-joint and I need to go pick up another but she is still driveable. Oh and even though mine still wasn't running didn't stop me from working on a few other rovers!

Bradlee the gears kick ASS! I took it down a little trail today and they are perfact! Everyone up here is telling me how they will be too slow and all, I say they are jelous! there was a 2 foot rock that would give me trouble climbing up before, the front bumper just clears it and it's up a wet loose dirt hill. I just put it in first and did not touch the gas break or clutch it just slowly crawled up the vertical edge and went over! I am very happy with the crawl speed! In the end it cost about $2200 for the new case with gears pre installed, shipped from the UK and import fees. Not too bad considering the last case I paid $1850 including shipping.

Man I missed wheeling it! And the weather today could not have been more perfact

Glad to hear it's going under it's own power again.

Which reminds me Mike.... almost done with the MegaSquirt on my CJ-7 :-)

Cool! I won't be messing with anything for a little. I'll more then likly look into it once I get the PTO winch in, at that time I'll be going with a new exhaust and I want to add wide band O2's so I can get the best results. For now I am very happy just being able to drive it!

My transfer box woes are fixed too
Ended up rebuilding the box myself with a repair kit- all the gaskets & bearings and other bits needed for 120 belivered to my door.
Arrival of first son slowed the rebuild somewhat

LOL, yeah I have heard kids can slow ya down but Congrats to fixing the rover and the new little one! I wanted to rebuild but with the case being ground down by the intermediate shaft I didn't have much choice but too replace.

Is the rebuild kit that you used available online somewhere? I need to rebuild my TC soon and I am trying to figure out what all I will need.

Thanks
