Ok, so I found out why I wasn't getting any spark to the plugs even though I was getting spark into the distibuter cap. Anyone want to take a guess?? It's stupid simple; the rotor wasn't turning. You mght ask yourself why the rotor wasn't turning and I can honestly tell you it's because the flywheel wasn't being spun by the starter. So I took the starter off and you can free spin the flywheel!! shock Anyway, I've only had this particular jeep for a little while so I don't know all it's history.

I've taken the tranny out of a couople of rides but, never a Jeep can anyone give some pointers on this such as anything that I really need to watch out for. Is there anything that must egt replaced when you pull the tranny?

Thanks and I hope someone has some advise for me on this one.

Make sure you have an E12 torx socket...The 2 top tranny bolts use that...easiest way to get to them is to drop the crossmember with a jack under it and let the tranny angle a bit then use a ton of extensions to get up there and losen those bolts..

ya its all about the e12 , a 12 point don't work . two 18" extensions worked well for me . i left tranny and t-case together .

a bolt off of a yj tow hook welded into a socket backwards works as a e-12 socket as i found out one Sunday .

So how heavy is the combo of the tranny and T-case? Any ideas? On the old Datsun with the T-5 tranny you just do a bench press with it and it's in. Seems like this is a whole different game.

Thanks for the info so far.

Has any one ever heard of the flexplate spining around the crank like that? Broken welds? bolts come loose?
