While searching for the input shaft shims I found most were on back order and high priced (over $10 per shim) so I looked on dabay and found some for a $1 each. The shipping date was about 2 weeks, a week longer then the others.

New old stock (NOS) shims from Spicer that traveled half way around the world and back to my home.

Volken was surprisingly easy to deal with.



New 4.1 gears installed





Overall the swap was straight forward with patience and attention to detail the job is fairly easy. First, the advance adapterís D300 4.1 kit instructions are absolutely worthless which is a surprise because their D20 3.15 installation instructions I used last year for my 20 case were excellent. I instead used Lomax 4.1 kit installation instructions that were easy to follow.

If I had a choice between AA or Lomax on 4.1 kits I would choose Lomax for a couple reasons. First the AA came with no directions (let qualified mechanic install gears) and the price, as of today the AA kit sells for $705 and the Lomax at $450. The AA kit I installed came as an extra on a Jeep deal.

FYI,

Torque specs Ft-lbs

Bottom cover bolts    = 20
Cover plate bolts      = 35
Output yoke nuts     = 120
Bearing caps            = 35
Shift fork set screws = 15

Thanks for the comments,

When I was under the Jeep tonight I noticed the passenger side motor mount was V8  which suggests it originally came with a 304. Seems a good candidate for a 360.

Buttoned the case up tonight

I decided to do the cut 2 days after you stopped by.


Iím trying to mimic the factory version. All the factory did was add 20Ē to a CJ5 just behind the door. The wheel base for a 56-71 CJ6 is 101 and 104 from 72-75 (longer nose). I'll be at 105.

Thatís all fine when your converting an early 5 with a straight c-channel frame makes life a bit easier. The later 5ís have a boxed frame that bows out after the front rear spring hangers. I would have liked to cut the frame at a 45 degree angle in different directions for more weld but there isnít more then 2Ē of straight frame between the hangers. So I had to make a straight cut. On the early 5ís you can slide a long piece of c-channel inside the existing channel for added support thatís not an option the later frames.

I plan to bend up some 3/16 (outside channel) and 1/8 (inside channel) to match the factory frame then plate.

I rather do the extra work then comp cut my 5 that way I can still drive it down the road for a beer run.

Great Idea! That 20 inches will make plenty of room for beer.
Keep up the good work Chuck.
