stump pulling

yes, I too have had carnaige from using my LJ as a tractor. first, the original transfer case in the LJ10 stripped the gears when the bearings got worn and siezed, this I thought was due to previous owners lack of upkeep. the second transfer case was from a LJ20 which by the way is slightly diferent...

my buddy says he can have a casting made that will fit in place of the side gears that pins into the carier like a lockrite or ez-locker. this would make it into a spool. I have to send him the carrier and side gears so he can make a pattern to work from. he is currently making adapters for dual tra...

thanks to Jock for sending me the 50 gears to work with! :cool: ok, the 50 gear has a taller flange and it is also thicker wall than the 10 gear. this means that it will not fit in the carrier where this is supposed to sit. so the carrier will have to be bored, and possibly deeper if possible but on...

dont try using a "z-link" from stock lj tie rods a

this is something I thought some of you might try if you spring over the front. I tried it and the rods are to light, they just bend under pressure. I felt that even adding more braces would just move the problem to an other place. the z portion of the rod wants to roll over in a circular motion and...

I was suprized to see that the lj50 side gear actually has more material around where the axle is inserted than the lj80 rear gear does. that means the gear is stronger than the lj80 gear! so, does anyone know if there is any difference in length of the inside of a lj10-20 carrier and an lj80 carrie...

how will the carrier cap stay centered with no machined surface to push agianst? the bolts surely will not hold up to the task, if they did hold they would work loose. what I thought on that was that if you took the carrier to the machine shop you could have it machined out to a size then have a shi...
