    I put Marvel Mystery oil in the plug holes in the valve cover and got the crank turning by taking the starter off and using a pry bar to inch the flywheel along. Now, I'm unsure of what to do to the L-134 now. I am a rookie at this. Also, my T-90 is frozen in place, the stick will not move whatsoever. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Is the tranny in gear or in neutral? Will the wheels move?

    Perhaps remove the tranny cover and see what you can see (rust, water, broken teeth, etc.). Spray some penetrating fluid throughout and allow it to do its thing while tooling around other areas of the Jeep.

    Thanks for the response, it is in neutral from what I can tell. I say this because it is in the back of a storage container behind a machinist's lathe, weighing a metric buttload, with no room to roll. However, in turning the engine over several times from the fly wheel, with the clutch out, the jeep did not roll. This could be a bad conclusion, but as I said, I am learning. I will remove the tranny cover when the Navy lets me home, but right now I am away from home. Thanks again for the response, I appreciate it.

    No sweat Joe. There are a few tricks to get things unfrozen along the troubleshooting chain. Just let us know what you see when you get back and we'll go from there. :)

    I haven't heard that one before! :)

    I hope you don't mind if I borrow it some time.

    No useful information from me. Unsticking stuck parts stinks.

    Nope, don't mind if you use it. I will definitely let the forum know whats going on when I get home, hopefully I will have my new digi camera figured out and I will include pictures.
