I deleted my last thread. I'm trying not to make so many threads.
I upgraded my clutch to a Southbend 1947- OFEK With the 1 and 3/8" input shaft. I already had the Southbend updated clutch slave. Updated transmission main shaft, updated 5th gear, with updated 5th gear nut. Installed all new bearing Kit races, seals, gaskets and shift fork pads, synchronize ring kit and resealed the rear seal. I took apart the transfer case and resealed it too, but I didn't take any pictures.
I had a hard time installing the transmission due to my pitted concrete drive way. So I came up with idea is to put a piece of 1/2" plywood down and bought a Harbor Freight Transmission jack. After I did that, it went in smooth. That transmission jacked helped installed the transfer case. I need to put some new u-joints in the rear and front drive line. Installed a short shiftier in the truck. I like how it reduce the throw by 30%. But it something didn't feel right. After driving around for 2 days. I was unable to get the transmission into gear. then all of sudden I was able to get into gear. then after 4 more days, It happen again. I was able to get a tow from another fellow dodge person. waited for a tow truck for 2.5 hours. then all of a sudden, I was able to get it into gear. took the chance and drove it home. I talked to my old man about it. I removed the short shiftier and installed the stock one and feels better. No leaks so far. Its hard not to get on the gobabygo petal, Im only 182 miles out of 300 miles of breaking in my clutch.
Enjoy the pictures.
