Figure 27. Images were not taken of rebuilding the input shaft assembly, however information will be passed along. After initial assembly, the clearance between the input gear and the snap ring was too large, it needs to be .003 or less. Shims were added totalling .009 behind the bearing and the unit was reassembled. Silicone was used instead of the gasket, and each bolt was also dabbed with silicone to prevent leaks. The bolts are torqued to 10 ft lbs. Do not forget to lubricate the seal before assembly.

Figure 28. The old shift fork is damaged beyond usability. They do not make this in the aftermarket, nor is it available from the dealer anymore. This will have to be outsourced to ebay, or a used jeep parts company.
