Engine compartment pics

Anyone have pics of the engine compartment of a CJ7, preferably a 1976 with the 258 in it? I just picked up this Jeep and a few items don't look like they are in the right place, but I don't have anything to compare to. The items that most concern me are:

1. The fuel line going from the fuel pump to the carb
2. The hoses coming from the PCV valves (presumably to the carb) since mine are completely missing and the underside of my hood is covered in oil
3. Some of the wiring (PO wired distributor straight to a switch inside among other things)
4. Tubing from the windshield washer bottle/pump to the sprayer

Any pics and details would be greatly appreciated so I can get this engine compartment straightened out!

One option is to scan Ebay and the web in search of "low mileage" and "collector" CJ's for sale and they often have pictures of unmolested Jeeps. Collins Brothers has a couple of low mileage 83-86 CJ-7's and CJ-8's that helped me out, they have on CJ-7 add that pretty much runs continuously on Ebay.

Thanks, I'll try that. I've been cruising around these forums and found some pics, but they aren't exactly my year/engine combination.

Someone out there must have a '76 with a 258 and a camera!

Awesome, thanks!

Looks like my fuel line from the fuel pump to the carb isn't too bad after all. Mine is all rubber which scared me a little, but it looks like the pre-80's used rubber instead of the hard lines so I guess I'll live with it.

Thanks again!

Interesting pic of the 79, I always thought that style air cleaner wouldn't clear a brake booster. I'll keep that in mind when I upgrade, thanks.

The pics by 243 are very nice. Even has AIR, good thing for TX.

The stock would have solid fuel line from the fuel pump to the front/over of valve cover over to carb. The Carb has U shape hard line and the two are attached with a fuel filter that used two outputs. The Top Output of Filter goes back to the gas tank along the drivers frame. I have a pic of fuel line but do not have the recirculate fuel line. Maybe another will post.

A little caution I have the rubber line across my top valve cover. Mike Romain said he knew a guy that had car fire and insurance denied because of rubber line across the top of engine. FYI I respect M. Romain opinion.

1978 CJ7 with cast iron manifolds, Carter 1barrel carb, missing return fuel line to tank



1978 CJ7 with 2 barrel intake from 81 AMC Concord, Borla Header, 2 Barrel Carb.
If you have single barrel carb, 1981+ manifolds & carb would be good upgrade for your vintage also. $35 at up pull junk yard off AMC Cars, concord, eagle etc with the same engine, Power steering, pullies, more??

1978 After Rebuild & 2 Barrel Carb installed

My 76 has a steel line. Just like all of them should. I made some changes on mine but I'll grab a few of the fuel line.

Here's the pics of my engine. Notice the fuel hose is half hardline and half rubber, and way too much rubber at that. The filter is just sort of dangling between the intake manifold and the power steering reservoir (I think). Should I be worried about that? Should I shorten the rubber hose?

Additionally, notice the PCV valves. One has a breather on it with no hose, and the other is plugged with a bolt and hose clamp. I also have an aftermarket 4bbl Holley carb on there (not my choice) and don't know where the PCV valves should be hooked up.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. And yes, the jeep was originally yellow if you can see behind all the blowoff from the PCV valves.
