Re: just got a CJ-5 for $600 and have some problems
You ain't got no problems man! you got a rolling $600 parts bin.
Or at worst, you got the cheapest RUNNING project I've ever heard of.
On the existing tranny, it sounds like your synchros are shot. Rebuild would probably be the way to go, pull the whole thing and have somebody work over the transfer case and tranny at one shot. On the T-18, not sure what it bolts to, give Advanced Adapters a call, they could tell you what it'll bolt to, or if necessary, sell you the adapter/bellhousing.
'83 CJ-7 nothing original but the tub and axle tubes
