    I couldn’t get it with a hammer and punch even with heat. Ruined a good brass punch though. It had to go to the press which had it out in seconds. Bearings and shaft are pretty chewed up.

    Transfer case disassembly

    I am finally turning my attention back toward the CJ3A. When I got distracted I was trying to disassemble the transfer case to replace the bearings. Is there a trick to getting the center shaft out?...

    Frame treatment?

    What is the best way to do the frame? Sand blast? Dip? Paint? Bed liner? I have a buddy telling me to have it galvanized but I am thinking it would be more common if it was a good idea.
