It Has Begun

I started the tear down today on the 76. I have found way more rust then I was hoping too, however; that it what you expect when working with a CJ.

It's October and your working without a shirt on. I'm debating firing up the space heater to work on mine.

That rust doesn't look that bad. You should of seen my '76 CJ.

Have fun.

Well yeah.. no shirt, the beauty of working in Hawaii, however finding parts is another story. I am really encouraged to hear that the rust is not as bad as I was thinking.

I like the aerodynamics of the windshield. That'll save some MPGs.

It was designed to make it look really fast while sitting still since it wouldn't run. The PO would just sit in there and bounce around like he was going somewhere!

Well I made a bit more progress. I hit the dreaded spinning body cage bolt, so now I am waiting on my compressor to come in so I can cut a couple of access holes. I have been finding more and more rust, but still not as bad as some of them I have seen. I have a couple of questions:
What is this piece on the Header? It is spring loaded it feels and looks like some sort of butterfly valve:


And this is where she stands now:

That is the Exhaust Manifold Heat Valve. It starts out in a closed position and as the engine warms up it opens.

From my FSM:

"A thermostatically controlled heat valve mounted between the right exhaust manifold an exhaust pipe directs exhaust heat to the intake manifold for rapid fuel vaporization during engine warmup. The valve is closed, directing exhaust heat through the intake manifold crossover passage when the counterweight is in the horizontal position. The exhaust heat crosses through the intake manifold and discharges into the left exhaust manifold until the engine reaches operating temperature. At this time, the thermostatic spring loses its tension and the counterweight moves downward, opening the valve and allowing the exhaust heat to discharge through the right exhaust pipe."
