Worked some more on the CJ last night, damn it was cold here in Colorado. I cleaned the oil pan and painted it, got my pilot bearing, how the heck to you get those flywheel bolts out!!! I'm taking the old one off of my 258... to get the backing plate out....talk about tough, I'm going to try an impact now. Hopefully the engine will be back in in the next few weeks, still saving for the Harne$$. She should be up and running before summer, quicker than I thought!

I use a 3ft piece of angleiron with some holes drilled in it, I then bolt it on to the flywheel with 2 bolts from the cover plate. Use that to help keep the flywheel from spinning. It will also help immensely when you are putting it back on since you are looking at over 100lbs of torque.
