QuadraTrac Selector Switch

Hello All, I am in need of the QuadraTrac Selector Switch ( The vacuum switch located in the glove box) for my '79 CJ7. I can't find one anywhere. Or does anyone know if my existing switch can be rebuilt? The problem with it is it turns past where it is supposed to stop in either direction. Thanks for any help

JEEP CJ CJ7 76-79 QUADRATRAC DASH MOUNTED VACCUM SWITCH: eBay Motors (item 310219596304 end time May-18-10 17:38:30 PDT)

This ends tomorrow, but you could also try www.jwjeep.com or www.collinsbrosjeep.com as they sell used parts. I have one if I can remember what box it is in. I'd give the others a try.

I have seen guys use a solenoid operated valve used on hydraulic equipment to switch the vacuum signals before as well. Then they have a switch on the dash instead of reaching way over to the glove box.

Thanks for the reply. I have a bid one the one @ ebay and also contacted collins bros and they haven't gotten back to me yet, don't think I've tried jwjeep yet though. If all else fails I might have to get back to you about huntin' that box down. Man that switch is hard to find, must be the few years and single application factor.

I would mainly need to use Emergency mode in the "West Virginia Snow Storms" and would sure be nice if it was working.

I want to try to keep the CJ original mechanically as possible as it is apparently an old Postal Jeep (So I have been told, even though the steering is on the left) because of the stock 10 gallon gas tank?

I keep ya'll posted on what happens....

Post a thread in JeepForum's Wanted Forum. There are many owners here with parts on the shelf.

UPDATE! I won the selector switch from EBAY! $1.04 + Shipping! Now I have another problem, I need to know the Fluid type and capacity for my Quadra-Trac TC. I have allmost a case of the ATF5 for the transmission, does the transfer take the same? Thanks

No, it doesn't.


Do a search in CJ Tech for "Quadratrac".

It takes a special friction modifier to prevent the clutch from seizing up.

"Use the right fluid! Your local Jeep dealer can still get QT fluid for about $17-18 a quart or buy the cheaper solution TCL-1 by Crown Automotive from a Crown dealer (BJs Offroad). It is also possible to mix your own by using a quality limited slip differential fluid with 30W non-detergent motor oil. I prefer the real thing when I can get it cheaper."
