Jr's '74 CJ5 (304v8), Another Project.

Jr just bought this '74 Jeep. Has a 304 and a 3speed tranny with a PTO and Ramsey's winch running off the PTO.
Not sure yet what tranny is in it or the axle ratio.
Has a gas tank in the rear and a tank under the drivers seat w/a valve to switch tanks (dual tanks).

Sweet Jeep.

Or keep your current knuckles and do the GM disk brake swap. Tons of info about it on the web.

Wow-Thanks. I'l have to Google and find this out. I think he would be better off w/disc's in the front instead of the 11" drums but keeping the drums so we have original parts.

Thank you,
Jim

Question, is that a chain or gear driven PTO off the case. I know the T-case is gear but not sure about the adapter.

Thanks,
Jim

The stock big drums work very well as long as they are in good shape and adjusted properly. A lot of people these days have never driven a vehicle with manual brakes though and don't realize you need to pump them, or how to modulate the pedal to keep them from locking up ( old school ABS). They suck if they get wet, though! But the drums can be drilled which helps a lot with the wet braking issue.

Thanks guys. Ya I have manual brakes on my '84/'86 and I like them, especially when you are on a slope and can't get the motor started etc-that is what I like about them.

I'll have to find a good write up for the drum drilling/how to as we will not get to the conversion right away.

Thanks again,
Jim

Hey Jim,

If you find a good write up on the drum drilling post it up. Would be an interesting read.

Thx!

OK and if not then I will make one - I think

Question, do you think (just opinion here) it would be best to turn the drums BEFORE you drill or ?

We really don't need to go disc yet (no mud out in the desert) but I would like to make it as safe for my boy's first Jeep (in case he moves back to Fla/swamp) if you know what I mean.

Thanks,
Jim

Seems like Jr's '74 came w/cruise control, not sure.
Also a pic of the engine bay w/all the smog stuff on it and the gas by-pass valve to switch tanks.

Gas by-pass valve to switch tanks. Not sure which way is which.
