CJ moves under own power! (Updated)
Having received my torque converter (hopefully the right one this time) on Friday, I spent the weekend putting the Jeep back together with the new tranny.
I fired it up last night for the first time in over a month! I've never had a new tranny before, so it's pretty nerve racking listening to the slight screeches and chirping. I filled with 2 gal. of fluid, then turned the motor over in neutral for about a minute. Then filled some more. Then test drove. Then checked the fluid again. The test drive went okay. It feels very different than the last tranny, though I can't really describe it.
So now it's a quick appointment at the tranny shop, get my front driveshaft lengthened, and I'll be 4wd again! Woo Hoo!
