  2. Also you may notice that the t.case is from an m38 jeep T90 i made a jig so i could mill cut a grove in the casting to allow for the shift leavers and the interlocking plunger on the T84, the T90 gearbox has all this in the top casting with the gear leaver
  3. to day finished the gearbox and t case rebuild and its time to let the green paint dry then its bolt and set the clutch cover fit the gearbox's to the engine photos from yesterday as well the funny wing shaped bit (photo 2) is the spacer/clamp to make up the bit of casting that was missing (photo 1) i don't think it will look out of place what do you think i also had to fit a nut to the centre bolt as the thread had been drilled out (photo 6)

  5. i think jeeparts have the rotary type switch in as some one i know has just got one ask for Helen tell them you know me jerry haynes
  6. what type are you looking for push pull light switch or the rotary type i know there is a bit of a shortage with the dealers on jeep looms i find the seal tested ones with two brake/tail lamps is the best there is also the mv spares and you pay for the name you just need to phone around jeeparts, universal jeeps, and the others

This weekend i got all the bits back from the blaster and set about cleaning all the dust off and priming the parts then i finished off the engine sump bolted on along with the fan just waiting for the generator to finish off today i rebuilt the gear box and started to work out how to fix the transfer box as there is a bottom lug of the casting that was missing it is also an m38/cj box and the interlocking grove has not been cut deep enough or in line with the shift rods what a mess i will have to spend some time with it will put up some more photos when i get it sorted
