Project finally making progress

I finally got around to working on the jeep this weekend again. Front end is assembled, 10 bolt (yeah i know ) Moser shafts and CTM's. Working on the block, it has a leak in one cylinder. I put 2 o-ring grooves and having LA sleeve build a wet sleeve for it. Frame is blasted and painted shackle reversal, rear spring hangers in the frame also. Someday it will have an Atlas II, alum body and other stuff. Sometimes i wonder why I took it apart????????

I'm curious. It looks like you spent a good bit of time and effort on that axle. Why'd you go with the 10 bolt?

Looks good, that front axle looks like it has some time and TLC put into it.

You need to replace that diet pepsi with a miller....genuine draft that is.

I already had it from the previous build. So it was cheaper to upgrade to Moser/CTM than buying and modifying a D60. Not exactly a Camo 60 but it'll work for awhile.

Why would he want a 44?? That axle is almost the exact same as a 44. Well anyway thats a good looking 10 bolt, nothing wrong with using one, just the same as someone else using a 44 fornt end.

I'm diggin' the forklift/axlehoist/workbench.... that's nice. I have used a hyster as a lift before, works great. Good looking 10 bolt btw. I'm going to be running a 10 bolt front in my wagoneer for a while, I just don't have funds for a 60 yet, and I have the 10 bolt and shafts are free, so why not? ....

I can't think that hard it hurts my brain. BTW-tires are grooved more now, and rear axle is apart waiting for new bearings(tomorrow).

This is kind of weird, but it seems that the original bearing is missing 3 rollers. Cost savings or lack of quality control???

Yup. I pulled it out of my dads 63 Chevy truck. It has 4.57 gears and a factory detroit. I narrowed the housing about 12" and had Moser make the shafts.

i have a good question about the alum. block. My old boss raced sprint cars and had alum. 406's then he moved to big block mods. so he had like 3 406's and i asked if he would sell me one (he got them for free through sponsers) but he said that i dont want a alum. block for a daily driver because the seal between the sleeve and waterjacket and the sleeve and the head isnt verry good and could leak and possibly while sitting fill a cylnder up then when u go to start it hydolock it and break rods crank heads who knows.... but id like to know how youre block seals maybe gm fixed the problems now my story was like 3-4 years ago, but the o-ringed head is a verry good idea
