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.
(1975, Parking Brake, E-Brake, CJ5)
