Alyssa's '65 CJ5 Navy Jeep

Well we/Alyssa just bought a 1965 CJ5 Navy Jeep. PO put new springs on and shackles but it is a clean Jeep and we are going to fix her up as a DDriver.

4 Cyl, 4:27 Gears, new head job/valve job done and the window opens out. I think it was used on the flight line side of the Navy.

Now we just have to tow it home and go through it.

I haven't started it yet but I did pull on the V belt and rotated the motor 2" so it is not frozen

Might just let my daughter drive the CJ8 and I drive this

Ok, looking at the brake lights-well, they don't work.

Headlights work, rear running lights work when headlights are on, BUT, the front parking lights do not come on when the headlights are on. They do come on when the light switch is at the parking light position.

Also, this Jeep does not have a turn signal lever to on the column.

Does anyone have any idea on the brake lights/is there a switch that is supposed to be engaged when the pedal is depressed?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim, I'm not certain on this year Jeep, but if the brake pedal goes into the floor, and it's not hung from the dash, I believe the switch is on the master cylinder.

Oh Ok, thanks Bill, I'll have to look for it.

Ya the pedals are not swing pedals, but push to floor.

Thanks,
Jim

Good for you! Stay the course (Navy pun) and you're going to have a GREAT Jeep!

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

Brake switch is on the master cylinder.

You can buy aftermarket turn signal kits that include a rocker switch that will mount you your column.

That is because they are parking lights. They aren't supposed to be on with the headlights.

Up until 76, turn signals were an add on item, which were attached to the steering column. The "stock" units aren't available anymore,

But you can get a regulator from any truck stop.

This is a common replacement unit. You will have to wire in the complete system, to include the brakes.

It should be a pressure switch either on the front or bottom of the MC.
