Hard to find parts
For some reason, I seem to collect jeeps with parts that are hard to find. The first one is my fault.... I think I got my harmonic balancers mixed up and threw out the 304 and installed the 360. 360 balancers are easy to get, 304's are not I discovered. I have one coming from Washington state.
The second and more problematic is the TF999 in my YJ. I found out a month ago AFTER I picked up my jeep from getting the transmission rebuilt that the case had been broken at some point before I bought it and welded back together. It seems it has an internal pressure leak though. No one has a core laying around anywhere. The cheapest I've found so far is in MN and it is $65 and estimated $200 shipping. Ouch.
I haven't even started on the M38A1 yet.....
