Back from a 5 month hiatus. Remember I said that I made a mistake by not testing my drive train before putting the tub on? Well, my clutch did not work properly and here are the results

user posted image

Would have been so much easier working from the top without the tub on

user posted image

I bought a new clutch and pressure plate and adjusted properly according to the manual. I also had the flywheel ground.

user posted image

My new clutch setup worked great!! On to the brakes - was a fairly simple, straight forward project

user posted image

And, after the brakes were good, the jeep got new shoes

I drove my jeep around all summer like that. Had a blast. But, around September, I figured I better get my butt in gear and get this thing painted. I set up a poor excuse for a paint booth in my garage.

Jeep stripped back down and the rattle can primer removed:

I traded looks for safety and installed a roll bar that will hopefully prevent a broken neck should I ever roll

user posted image

Here I have installed the spare tire mount and draw bar:

user posted image

I installed a good electric wiper on the drivers side. Still have to put one on the passenger side one of these days

A nice bikini top from New Life Canvas

And here is the engine pulled to replace the rear main seal, also replaced timing cover and gasket - trying to stop up at least some of the leaks. As a post script to that, both FAIL. Always dripping from where the timing cover and the oil pan meet no matter how many new gaskets and gasket sealant I use.

I was out in the mountains enjoying the jeep, even though there was still plenty to do. I finally got sick of the transmission popping out of second gear so during the winter down time, I decided it was a great time to rebuild the transmission and might as well do the transfer case at the same time.

I have pictures from almost every step along the way for both rebuilds, so if anyone ever needs some reference pictures from a T-90 or D-18, you can view them HERE.

Disassembly of the D-18

Fully disassembled D-18. This one did not have the standard E-brake assembly. That would be fixed during the rebuild as well.

Next thing I worked on was the carburetor rebuild. I rebuilt a spare that I had so the jeep would be down for as little time as possible. Old carb

I rebuilt using a Carter Zip kit

Carb fully rebuilt

And this brings you up to date on the work on my 63 3B. I still have to go through the axles and work them and I have a spare F-head engine that I plan on rebuilding. Future plans also include installing a hard top and heater so I can enjoy the jeep a little bit more in the winter. Probably will install a one wire alternator at some point, too.

This past summer, I moved the spare tire mount from the side to the tailgate. I personally like the look better when the spare is mounted on the tailgate.

First the chains were removed and the tailgate was bolted shut:

Small modification to the spare tire bracket:

user posted image

The first hole that I drilled in the tailgate kind of stung - the rest were easier tongue.gif I used a piece of oak on the inside of the tailgate to help spread out weight/ abuse. It should have been bigger, but that was all I had laying around at the time. I got the idea from HERE I off set it because I want to fit a jerry can back there eventually.

Here is the finished product:

This set up worked fine for awhile. However on the last trip into the hills in October, I noticed a lot of noise and movement back there. I checked it out and the top loop of the gate cracked. I had to remove the spare for the rest of the trip. Later this winter I plan to modify a spare tailgate I have laying around and try for round 2. This one will be a lot beefier.

This weekend, a friend and I installed my new over drive. I had saved all summer and fall to afford it. Figured it was a good, early Christmas present. I ordered it from Herm.

user posted image

First thing I did was lose the cotter pin from the main drive gear down inside the transfer case. Had to take the bottom pan off to make sure it was out of there rolleyes.gif Planetary gear installed.

user posted image

The most difficult part by far was getting the lock washer and locking ring in place - and making sure they were in properly.

user posted image

After that, things went pretty well. Rest of the OD installed:

user posted image

One interesting thing that I found when removing the transfer case pan. I was unaware that CJ3Bs came with F Script parts laugh.gif laugh.gif

user posted image

The OD seems to work really well; although, I didn't take it on a long run. It was about 40 degrees today and people were looking at me like I was crazy driving around in an open jeep cool.gif
