hows ur luck??

i'll start.. (long sorry..) did my V8 swap.. loved it until.. the tranny will only work (1234 and reverse) for about 10-15 minutes and then its like putting it in nuetral.. nothing.. no grinds whines or binds.. shut it off wait 30 seconds.. start it then its fine for maybe 1-2 minutes..
okay fine buy another tranny put it in.. great.. went downtown (about 10 min away) drove around town for a while .. (Jeep wasn't driven for almost 2 yrs.. i was happy and showin everyone) everythings werkin great.. get home and then coming up my road it was like 10 ppl just stomped on my brake pedal..it stopped that fast.. no forward gears.. put it in reverse and get it off the road.. reverse works perfect.. put it in drive and its like putting it in neutral..

so first what do you think is wrong and 2 has anyone else had worse luck??

Nope, my luck has been great with my ZJ. It has been flawless and took more abuse than a red headed step child.

Sounds like you need another new tranny.

Re: hows ur luck??

got video on my youtube account.. honestly the only way you can tell it didnt come from Jeep like that with this motor is by the VIN number... the 8th still says S instead of Y





this is the motor i took out..


lemme know what you guys think.. good or bad.. doesn't matter i like criticism .. I did the werk by myself in 4 days.. motor tranny and tcase all as one in and out.. of both vehicles.. in my back yard....

honestly so has mine with the exception of the tranny issue.. but for a Pre-96 V8 that's the most common thing.. other than that all i have tied into this jeep including what i paid for it in 05 is about $3200... and the best part is .. no rust to speak of..
