That there's worth fixin'
Definitely! I used the slime ones from walmart- about $10 a piece, and they are super thick!Thanks you guys. It's a 77 CJ5 with a replacement fiberglass body.
Not a crib. No kids, just me and the wife.
Can't wait to mount up the tires. They say "tube type" so I gotta get a pair of inner tubes first.
Seen several of them with the same problem. The sector gear teeth dont go all the way to the end of the casting so it can bind then probably break the pinion. The stops on the axle don't seem to stop the travel as soon as they should. I welded my pinion but don't expect it to be very good. Hard to get a good weld on cast iron.I pushed mine out of the way the other day and the steering slipped a little. I guessing it's the pinion gear.
My BIL is a auto painter/body guy. If he has his way it will be auto paint and clear coat.
You can do what I did and put it together with a small block Chevy engine and 3/4 ton Chevy rears, I got tired of breaking the stock stuff.:trink39:Those Jeeps in 75 I think had dana 44 rears. bulletproof. Mine has the amc or "rambler" rear end. It's ok but not like the good Dana's..
