I'm in the garage cussing at myself for not paying attention to my transfer case as I pulled it apart to rebuild it

I just got finished putting the steering column back together which I didn't pay attention to when I pulled it apart. NOTE TO SELF: DON'T EVER DO THAT AGAIN!

I bought a twin stick set up for my truck today. Even fired up the truck and climbed the front wall by mistake. Been a long time since I've had rubber squalling on rocks like that. It made it though and no it is even parked up on a small rock pile vogue-ing till the shifter gets here. At least it started on its own today after sitting for 3 weeks. I think I impressed the neighbor that was watching me fire it up without opening the hood. Shame she didn't stick around for the rubber burning up the rock wall.

October sounds good to me. It will be nice and cool for sleeping outdoors.

I installed the steering column yesterday. Everything works...turn signals...emergency flashers....ignition switch....and even the little ding ding ding bell that sounds if you leave the key in the ignition with the headlights on. I never really understood that one.

Low range shifter and front drive shaft went in today. I started to use the shaft that came with the '78 parts rig. It is a custom built unit that only has @ 39K miles on it. When I went to bolt up the straps on the front U-joint I noticed that the caps weren't fitting into the yoke as they should. There is no way to fit them in because the U-joint is too wide. It must have been a real good shop that let that one out the door. I got to looking at the rear shaft, and when I pulled the U-joint caps I noticed that they were wiped out. So.. I went to my spare parts pile and pulled out a front shaft that has new U-joints in it{CV and front} and installed it. It actually was a better fit than the one I had planned on using. I'll replace the rears with a couple of Spicers I have laying around. WOW how I love my spare parts pile.

I'm getting closer HOOT.

gotta love it when your parts pile bails your butt out. Worked on the F350 today. Now I can get back to the Jeep as I will need it when I start removing front suspension parts from the F350.
I have so many spare parts I think I can rebuild my Jeep with new stuff. Guess I'll soon find out as I start tearing into them.

If we can get some other s to chime in about a meet up then we will start a new thread and try once again to have a MWI again. It's been a few years now not counting the one at your place.

I'm just getting my Chief back together and rolling again. Sounds like I did a very similar project to Retro. The first test for my rebuilt 360 and T18/D20 combo will be this weekend up at Silver Lake so we'll see how that goes. I'm good with a meet up in October sometime, sounds like fun!
