    Here is my 64 CJ5 with 302 I picked up a few weeks back. It has a 1980 ford 302, with a t86 trans case with t90 guts, D18 transfer case, Dana 25 up front and Dana 44 in the rear. Going get this girl cleaned up, and keep it simple and neat. Nothing fancy.

    The first thing I wanted to do was take care of the front crossmember where the steering bellcrank is mounted its pretty hacked up.

    So I removed the old cross-member or what ever was left and put in this 2x2 square tubing

    I also don't like the engine mounts that are there, one is cracking, and they are just a disaster. I also wanted to move the motor forward and up a little as it was on some crazy angle down towards the back, and interfering with the firewall. The trans cross member was also lowered with spacers to accommodate this hack job. But to make life a little easier I wanted to remove the body.

    Here are the new mounts I made with a universal 302 kit from autofab. We used the autofab parts in our race truck, and we love them. Solid. Nice poly bushings, 2x2 square tubing, and frame reinforced with steel plate. Not fully welded, but good enough till I pull the motor to get the frame sand blasted in a few weeks. Then I will fully weld them.

    Once I got that done, I was able to rebuild the tranny. I also picked up this lil parts washer...Thing is great, decent size with pump, and seals up to store away when not in use. Picked it up on Amazon at a discount because it didn't have the box it was in.

    Definitely better, but it was missing the oil collector, so I won't have one of those, and from what I have read, it was discontinued after a while.

    I thought I fixed this issue, I’m bringing them in from google photos. I tried in incognito mode and it worked fine.

    Started tearing apart the transfer case last night. It’s actually in better shape than the trans. It wasn’t too bad to take apart, the seals were a little tough as well as the rod that holds the shift levers in. Hoping to have it back together by the weekend.

    I like when the wife has to stay at work late, and the kids are sleeping! More me time.

    Attached the trans and transfer case, and made a new trans mount. This is pretty much the final resting spot for motor and trans.

    I’m also ditching the floor mounted pedals and picked up swinging pedals and brake booster/master cylinder from a yj cheap. And will be putting in a hydraulic pull style clutch cylinder.

    I’m debating on what style headers to get, I think the block hugger style that dump straight down might be the way to go, but not sure. I would like to have them meet at a y pipe and lead to a single exhaust outlet. I don’t like the big headers that exit out the side. Not a clean look.

    Oh this is awesome. I love the work you are doing. I am trying to get an 89' in my 64'. I just test fit it and am coming up short. I really just want to take the meat out of the firewall so I can keep the running gear in the same location. I see that the previous owner of your jeep pushed the motor forward instead... what do you think? would you have pushed it back instead? Is the body still lined up (hood-fenders-grille). (sorry if I just hijacked??)

    No problem Mike, so the PO actually had it pretty far back, and jacked up the crossmember in the process. And he had it on an extreme angle downward towards the trans crossmember that was pushed dropped about an inch or two. He also did some massaging to the firewall to make it fit. I liked none of it! Lol. So I moved the motor forward about 2” and leveled it a little so that it looks better sitting on the frame. I know I will have a problem with the tunnel and prepared to make a new one. I have to replace the floors anyway, so none of this is really a problem. I’m also going to run an electric fan, so I’m not worried about space. I will make everything fit one way or the other. Lol

    So after pulling the chassis out to power wash before I clean it and paint it, I found out I have a 2.5” procomp lift kit based on this part number.

    I was going to run stock Kelsey-Hayes wheels but not sure how it will look with a little bit of lift. Anyone have any pics?
