Discussion in 'Early Jeep Restoration and Research' started by oldtime, Jun 5, 2017.
So is this parking brake cable common or is it special to the 4 speed CJ5s?
Just a thread on the rebuild of the T18 itself, in the tech forum. Due to my current situation, the transmission has not yet found it's way into the JEEP.
I will likely build a custom crossmember from tubing when I get back at it. I am, however, still interested in all of this information you're presenting. It's good stuff.
Yes it was common on all the later D18 transfer cases.
I would have to look up the parts number to determine when that change occurred.
Just guessing I think maybe it occurred along with the 1954-1/2 transfer case change to 2.46 ratio.
All 2.43 ratio transfer cases will have the short lever with a single hole at the end.
After installing transfer case its normally time for the propeller shafts.
The front measures 28" compressed and 29-1/2" extended.
The rear measures 13-1/8" compressed and 14-7/8" extended.
The rear propeller travels a little further and you can see that it has a longer yoke than up front.
Note that these yoke splines are of military design.
They have the heavy duty threaded type seal caps not the civilian crimped type seal caps.
The skid plate was special formed for Jeeps having the optional T98-A.
The plate roughly measures 20-1/2" wide by 22" length.
1956 CJ-5 or CJ-6 sheet metal for T98
And finally here's the contents of a full T98-A rebuild kit direct to you from the late 1950's or the early 1960's.
I almost overlooked the transfer case shift levers.
In this pic you see the T98 shift levers (on your right) are nearly identical to standard levers .
The T98 transfer levers are straight up down and not swept back like standard levers.
All other bends excepting rearward bends are identical.
This was done because the rear engine support cross member was moved aft on the frame exactly 5-1/2" .
I found very boring that all the pictures are gone because of photobucket shit...
Yeah I'm sorry I'm completely computer illiterate and totally on my own.
I have never even owned a computer.
Hopefully I'll find time this winter to figure how to retrieve my pics, re-host them somewhere and get them back on.
This was an incredible thread. Thanks for all the hard work on it. Maybe Focker can help with the pictures.
I did a 3 year frame off Bronco restoration and lost all of the pictures. Made me sick. My son transferred the pictures from Photobucket to Drop Box and I was able to repost from there. All is good now.
