    More pics of the repair work. What started out as a 'couple of things'
    becomes much more as my nephew tears away. As he says - and
    I agree with him- we might as well fix it while we've got it
    open, and you'll never have to worry about it again.

    Lol, he texted me the 1st pic below of the transfer case in pieces
    and said " Crap, how does it go back together ? "

    As well, a shot of the correct Willys MB crossmember in place,
    instead of the CJ-2A type that was there when I got it back
    in 1999 (!) and the 4x4 lever mount which, when heated
    to remove the pin, was found to be badly cracked, so
    it will be replaced with the good one shown
    just behind it.........

    Ah yes, the simple but frustrating gearbox and transfer case. Dont forget the idler shaft flat lock plate that gets sandwiched in place...... a world of pain if you leave it out.... I remember it well.

    Looks like it could be welded? Always a shame to bin an original part that might be repairable, they don't grow on trees anymore.

    Indeed - one thing I've learned is not to throw anything
    away ! Some old parts which are broken and seem
    useless can be made serviceable - but we might
    as well use the better one here.........

    Hoping for some time to apply the final coat of paint and then I'll add this to my jeep.
