YAY!!!



now that the easy part is done :-) when pulling a jk transmission make sure to disconnect ALL the wiring that clips onto the top of the transmission. There are multiple wire loom sections  zip tied to the top.

make sure you have a long extension for the top bell housing bolts the floor is tight to the tranny

now is a good time to service the transfer case

Rockauto didn't have it, neither did CARiD, you can try Summit but they can be quite spendy...

one more clutch question....i have the JK all torn down/all thats left is the housing to come off, just awaiting a couple more parts...anyways my question is once i angle the trans down a bit on the jack to get at the top bolts, do you guys put a jack under the front of engine to keep it in that position for easier reinstall?

yep, put it in neutral, take the 4 bolts out and it lifts up. Goes back in the same way. Put a rag in the hole to keep crap out of it...

There's a plate on the floorboard you have to pull up and you drop the shifter through the floor to bolt it back up.

What year is your jeep? I'm probably due for a clutch, as it catches near the floor, but mine is 12 years old, and has 170,xxx+ish on it (wrong tire size for speedo gear for years).

I was thinking LUK, I'm sure it's more available for TJs since we're old and decrepit, like the YJs were when mine was new... :mad02: :mrgreen:

Gotta get my R&P fixed up first though...stupid metallic gear oil :eek:

Even in the aerospace field.  Reusing bolts is common.  Hardware from home depot is not the same quality the oem's  use.  Unless its torque plus stretch,  reuse is fine.

yes ,,i actually replaced with new oem bolts.....actually just finished and everything back as it once was...only thing is i need a new slave.  when i went to put it back on the boot came off the end and it hyperextended into the hole the wrong way...needless to say removing it was not that easy....only one problem , i noticed when i got it out that the tiny plastic end was not there (it must have fallen in)...does this mean re-do or will it possibly fall out the holes on the bottom of the bell housing.....ughhhh
