Thanks for the help!
Mine is inside the alternator. No idea on the brake booster.

I'm reading in the 82 tsm (pgs. 1L2 & 1L7) that the constant voltage regulator (CVR) is located in the fuel gauge housing and if it's bad you replace the entire fuel gauge.
Page 1J50 tells about the idle speed control, though not real detailed, but you've probably read that already.

I compared the ford with the bracket and it is a little smaller but appears that it could be made to fit. You would have to redrill the bracket.

The TSM and Chilton's gave me schematics that I used when tracing the wires. I think the CVR in the fuel gauge is to reduce voltage for the gauge so it doesn't burn out. I may be wrong though.

Thanks. I hope I can keep up the progress. I need to get my workshop finished so I can get indoors before it gets too hot. It is slow going sometimes working by yourself.


I got some JY finds today I will post up later. Woot!!!!

First pic is JY finds. .... Yes I even got an extra booster bracket in case someone else needs one. Scott?

Second is the cleaned up wiring.

Third is the crap removed from the wiring.

Just subscribed to thread. I to have an 82 7 I am working on as time allows. I have many of the same questions. Hopefully in May I will have a decent amount of time to work on it and finally start my own thread, but for now I'm gonna lurk around yours and see what other questions I have will be inadvertently answered. Good luck!

Thanks. I have enjoyed figuring things out and the help on here. What seems trivial to some folks may save a lot of time and headaches for others.

The research on the web (mostly JF for me) has been one of the most rewarding aspects of rebuilding a Jeep. Finding out HOW to do something, then going out and DOING it is instantly gratifying. Sorta like hitting a big gator in the head! Do the computer time. It will pay back in dividends.

Thanks for the brake bracket offer, but I am in good shape. My unit is complete. But I do want to see how the Explorer parts work out, so be sure and doc that well. Sonebody will want that info.

Your cleaned up wire mess is OUTSTANDING! Keep rocking, Bud.

Yeah working on the Jeep is in some sort of twisted, busted knuckle, frustrated, pi$$ed off, and mad at the world kind of way therapeutic. I'm know mechanic but have great desire to learn. I've already learned so much from this forum!

Here are a few pics of the manifold. I am putting the EGR back and have to try welding a crack in the tube tomorrow. Another skill to learn


First one is the old tubes PO cut and crimped off. You can tell by carbon and look they were leaking like crazy, plus they were ugly.
I had to drill out and retap 2 that broke. They are 1/2-13 thread in case you need to know.

Second is what the empty hole looks like. I was surprised to see it is tapered. So much for just throwing a plug or bolt in.

Third/4th is the bolt I found to go in it from Fastenal. Part is 1/2-13 x 3/4 FHSCS for .62 each. And the high temp rev I am using with the bolts to help seal a bit more.

Fifth is the final result. Way better IMHO.

I am going to start putting the manifold and intake back in tomorrow!!!!


The last one was a brake booster adapter on a YJ in the JY. Is this home made or factory? I haven't seen one like this.

Clay can weld it up for ya, but you can ditch the entire EGR system if you don't want to mess with it. Still requires a very small bit of fab work, however. The counter-sink screw looks very professional in the maifold. And the last pic looks like a seat pedastal for your boat!! But I think it is factory...

I thought it WAS a seat pedestal. Lol. I bought a cheap 110v mig welder on clearance for $95 a while back. Just to weld small stuff if needed and to hopefully build a forge one day soon. It's a small crack so I can't mess it up too bad.

Well, the jeep got put on the back burner since we had rain coming in the forecast. I wanted to get the new workshop housewrapped, windows and doors in and to build the sliding barn doors. My back and knee were trying to keep me from doing anything but I swallowed some meds and plugged away. It's slow going working on your own but I managed to get everything dryed in before the rains made it in. I sat in my new dry shop and put together a small rolling toolbox .... can't own a jeep if you don't have tools.

It was still raining when I came in so I'll get some pics of the shop when I get home from the Doc tomorrow .... gotta get some relief for my back and knees.

I hear you about doing it by yourself, I have people I can call on if I have to but I'm usually too stubborn. Just a heads up the YJ master cylinder has diffrent fittings than the CJ lines in your jeep. I think the YJ's are metric. And they are on the wrong side if I remember correctly. What I did was use the YJ booster and a CJ master cylinder with the guts from the YJ master cylinder in it. Good Luck!

The first pic is the workshop I built originally but the wife has deemed her craft space now. The second is my new one I am building that she calls the Jeepmahal now!

It is taking away from jeep work but it is close to getting done.
