put the CJ6 on the trailer and am taking a step back to let the dust settle and get some long put off maint done. have been building this up for almost 2 years... My Rover has been nothing but a joy for the last 2 years, probably since I haven't kept up with the maintenance. Its a fairly new rig in terms of its mechanics, but like anything that turns 40 things start leaking and creaking. neglected for PM, not use.. They just plod along. Its rust inhibitor system is working a bit too well right now. While I'm in there some "tiding" also needs to be done. Really hope to get this in and out in short order.. Drained the coolant at a gas station last night and dragged it home via tow rope.. Backed into garage and: 1. removed tire 2. removed hood 3. removed floor matt (all 50 lbs of it) Would like to get engine out and on stand by Sunday... using my usual 45 min at a time technique. (Kids napping or out of the house) I'm sure I will get a detailed "to do" list once the motor is on a stand.. Working on the CJ6 for the past year so my mechanical photo journalism skills are peaking right now.. some of this might seem unnecessary, but I also noticed there was no good step by step write-up on doing a 2.25 RMS.. I think I might compile all this in some good order once its done for a resource. Started Saturday when the kids went down for a nap.. able to finish it all up when my oldest woke up and he helped operate the chain fall for me.. front floor and trans tunnel removed.. Hello flywheel housing bolts.. no wobble sockets or greasy forearms Engine disconnected and chained.. speedo cable needs to be replaced, was a bit damaged from exhaust have a nice little setup here, and the heater keeping up well. we have lift off and separation.. Clutch cover and disk removed, wasn't as oil saturated as I assumed... still plan on replacing with a new unit. Flywheel housing removed. Didn't even have to yank the starter. Here is the sucker... looks so innocent sitting there... upper seal was dry, lower was soaked.. I also noticed that there was no flywheel housing oil seal (O ring) Unsure if I forgot to install or what... seal retainer is located behind the flywheel flange.. some bolts pulled through the notch in the crank and the seal retainer upper half is removed. the lower half is removed with the rear bearing cap.. Need to get the motor on a stand and the oil pan off before I go any further.. My other set of hands was really excited when we pulled the motor.. had to take the front wheels off to gain a little more clearance from the body... opened up the wheel wheels and engine compartment a little for some other misc. maintenance I plan on doing..
