I considered this but I was strongly motivated to replace the clutch pressure plate. I installed a rebuilt unit that I purchased from an auction and didn't consider checking it beforehand. I quickly discovered it was a racing style clutch and the pedal force required to activate is much too high for my liking.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

Yep I agree after thinking on it a little...
It's one of those things where you have to be there in the proses to fully get what it is that needs be done and how to go about it to get it done.
and fall back on my original theory what works for one does not nessocery work for someone else...

I do see how the top bracket will aid in helping moving the trans forward and backwards to get it stabbed into place...

I am impressed with your rig there..... I have not thought of such a rigging
to help in that way..... always had to muscle the dang trans in to position on a tranny jack when I was doing transmission clutch jobs and it looks like it is what an ole crippled fart like me needs because there is no way I could do that job by my self any more either....

I will soon have to help my son with his clutch in his truck and that rig is a great idea... hope ya wont mind if I use it...

One advantage of getting older and being Handy/crafty/skilled.... is our ability to have such brain farts and put them to a reality and make them work...

And meaning most all of us on this site have such abilities and sharing those ideas makes us all the more capable of accomplishing the hard to accomplish task thrown in front of us.....

Is this to support as your unbolting to drop? Or is this to unbolt and raise up inside the cab?


I guess I'm too tired to figure this one out.
If the pictures aren't clear, I am moving things below the floor and not into the cab.

The high lift point and long cable may confuse some but I did this to increase my control of position. I actually removed the rear view mirror to gain height

I could not determine what the problem is after inspecting the internals of both the transmission and transfer case. I decided to replace them with the ones from my old Cherokee. They have only 65,000 miles after I rebuilt them 15 years ago.

This hoist design will not work well on Jeeps with weak rocker panels, I suppose that limits its usefulness dramatically. Lucky for me the inner rockers are still, for the most part, intact in this Cherokee.
