First post here. Looking to learning about my newly acquired 56 CJ5.
Have a few ideas I want to throw at it, first just for playing around while hunting etc. No plans to put on street at this moment, maybe later.
Bleed you brakes for three quarts worth after they bleed clean, make sure your lap belts work if you don't do that, check the rest of the fluids.
A Jeep guy I know found his sons plastic army men toys in his tank you never know until you know just sayin.
Aim a skinny flash light with a good string tied on it and shine it down the fuel tank filler hole and look for crap in the tank bottom.
Change every filter there is
Welcome to the forum! Looks like it's in good shape for it's age. If it hasn't been running for a while, by all means change the fluids, pull the spark plugs and put some Kroil or the like in the cylinders before trying to start the engine. Also a good time to remove the gas tank (under the driver's seat, I believe), drain, wash out, as well as the fuel lines, so the years of gunk don't haunt you for weeks or months... I learned the hard way.
