Member's Rigs / Re: Noisy Cricket (75 CJ-5)
« Last post by NoisyCricket on August 21, 2019, 12:41:14 PM »
Driving home the other day the pinion in the rear-end decided to give out.  At first, I heard something that seemed a little off about a mile from home and kept going.  The closer I got home the uglier things sounded and the Jeep would shutter with each pop.

So now I get to replace the ring and pinion.  I've got everything apart, now it's time to hunt for part and tools.

Ran into the first hurdle with the transfer case.  The rear axle is a D44 from a later model Jeep with a center diff, the stock transfer case is set up for an off set diff. A little research and it looked like using a swapping the Dana 18 with Dana 20, just needed to mate it with the T-90.  Novak had an adapter so I got that.  Next hurdle was finding the right main gear and figured out I needed an 18-8-46.  Thankfully, I was able to find that Ebay. 

All I need to do is put it all together but that being put on hold so I can focus on my CJ-5.

Thanks to all.
