H55 issues
 
I recently did a 2F swap in my '64 FJ40 along with an H55 & split case with the unobtainable parking brake drum conversion. Unfortunately, I think I screwed something up in the install. I've got 5 forward gears & reverse, however, there's issues with reverse. When backing out of the garage for my much anticipated test run the rig "jolted" to a neck break stop when I pushed in the clutch to shift into first gear. Of course I repeated this a half a dozen times with the same results. There's no grinding or obvious noise but something is definitely wrong. At any rate, I just pulled the t/c apart looking for something obvious & couldn't find anything. Anyone know anything about these & be willing to help a very frustrated 40 owner out? I need a functioning tranny & t/c that I can just bolt back in & hit the road? BTW, I've emailed Robbie as well.

If there's nothing loose in your xfer case that's jamming things, could your parking brake be engaging randomly due to loose shoes or too-tight shoes? Could there be an unrelated problem in your rear axle that coincidentally showed up at this time, such as a loose pinion nut?

I guess anything is possible but I really think that I messed something up either installing the transfer case's new rear output shaft with parking drum or mating the t/c to the tranny. Prior to pulling the t/c apart I adjusted the parking brake to both extremes and nothing changed. Axle wise, everything seems fine when it's up on jack stands and there were no issues prior to the swap.

What does it do when you have the gear shifter in the neutral position?

Just guessing but I would tend to agree with SteveH. If it is moving ok when in gear and the clutch is engaged, that sort of rules out the gears being goofed up. Having it stop suddenly when you push the clutch in (and effectively remove power) indicates the emergency brake or the regular brakes are bound up. I suppose something inside the case could be binding up too but I would check the easy stuff first.

If I understand your question correctly, with the rig on jack stands & engine running, the rear wheels will turn slowly in neutral.

when in the driveway and in neutral with the engine running did it try to drive away like it was still in gear?

What changed since July? anything? http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/foru...ad.php?t=18261

Sounds like a clutch issue or issue with the clutch fork. Esp when it only happens with the clutch engaged.
