Just signed up to the forum and doing research on my other 06 TJ Iím glad I have. I actually just sold of the TJ off and went with a 1975 CJ5. When I looked at the Jeep it had some nice beauty shots in and out, and when I test drove it she felt OLD. I was quickly reminded of how long itís been since Iíve even driving in an antique like this. So we puttered around the neighborhood and it seemed fine to me.
When I got it home (250+ miles away on a trailer) I took it in because it seemed to be running rich. I wanted to do the work on it myself. Itís one of the main reasons for picking up an old CJ5. I was sick of dealing with Engine Codes and chasing an issue. Wanted something I could see working before my eyes. So I took it into a shop here in Austin. Right off the bat, you need a new Carb, new Distributor, wires, plugs, Rust in the filter. 1300 later I still need a new Tank, new e-brake and Clutch replacement) these are all on the verge of going out.
Right now though, Iím in need of replacing the E-brake. Upon inspection the T-bar release handle is busted off but the rest of the components seem to be working fine, although I canít get the pedal to latch and hold. Iíve searched High and low but canít seem to find a schematic. Yeah I know I should pick up a manual and I will. But for right now a simple PDF Diagram would work too. Anything would help.
Jeep Cocky, did that assembly work? I am in the same boat on my '73 and from what I could see the bolt pattern at the firewall is the same, but on mine there is not a bolt at the top at the front, but a bolt at the side. 76' is the year Chrysler took over jeep and that seems to be when this was changed.
Please let me know if this worked for you.
Chrysler did not take over in '76. Jeep was still AMC at that point.
Yes, there were lots of changes made in the '76 model year, but it had nothing to do with Chrysler. One change was the ebrake pedal assembly. You'll want to find one from a '72-75 and the various classifieds on these forums as well as searching locally like via craigslist will be necessary to find the correct parts. They aren't sold as new that I'm aware of.
Here is a picture of mine. As you can see the handle is broke off, but this is the best I can do. This model the handle attached to a cable as in the diagram posted earlier. Good luck in finding one.
No, that's the first year that you can find a ebrake assembly at a dealer with a Mopar part number now assigned to it. It doesn't mean that Mopar made the part for Jeep. If AMC dealers were still around you'd find an AMC part number for that part.
Mopar didn't ever come into the picture for Jeep until late 1986. Yes Jeep used lots of parts made by other companies, but that isn't one of them and not much was used from Chrysler other than Torqueflite transmissions starting in the 80s.
know what your going thru. my 75 needs the same thing to pass inspection. just bought it to rebuild it for my grandson. he is a jeep nut along with his dad. I had a 78 golden eagle. 3 sp. 6 cyl. he remembers the good times we had as father and son with it. wants to do the same with his 3 boys in his 02 yt.
