78 CJ7 Restoration advice
Hey folks i just bought a fairly nice 78 CJ7 (off of craigslist!) and im kind of new to the restoration game. it runs fine, the only problems arent glaring, like electricity issues in the dash (spedometer craps out at about 50, fuel and temp gauges dont work, radio and windshield wipers dont work).
i was wondering if apart from these issues, if there is anything in particular i need to have checked/worked on due to its age.
also, it has a 3 spd manual tranny with a 304 V8, so its pretty much like driving a tractor. id like to eventually put maybe a 4 or 5 spd in it, but am in the dark as to time/money/necessity of such a project. PLEASE HELP!
