Just got a '79 CJ7 last week, my first. My apologies for the long post, but just wanted to let y'all know where I'm at so you can provide any feedback you like. Here's the details:
304 V8, runs ok, idles a little rough.
Recently Rebuilt T150
Not sure about the Tcase model
New Wheels and Tires
New front brakes (complete)
Decent tub and fenders
Horrid camo spraypaint job
I started tearing down this weekend, and I have a long way to go. This time around I'm not going to do a complete frame-off rebuild, but will be giving the motor a "tune up", sanding and repainting the interior and exterior, and probably rewiring (I'm afraid of what I'll find when I take the dash apart..)
It's my understanding I'm still too new to post pics in a thread, so here's the link to my picasa gallery - Picasa Web Albums - Tim - Jeep
feel free to take a look and let me know what you think.
I also have a question - I found about a 2" x 1" chunk missing from the front of the bell housing - other than the obvious water/mud/dirt intrusion issues this could cause/have caused, is a patch job possible without an engine pull?
Thanks for any input you can provide..
