My CJ5 is still leaking oil like crazy. The next most obvious leak is the distributor base, so I pulled it this morning to change the gasket. There was no old gasket at all... It was a quick job, but this old motor leaks everywhere it seems. Perhaps this weekend I'll eliminate another source.
Mine was slowly leaking too so I just took the whole thing apart and replaced every gasket on it minus the head gaskets and intake manifolds because they are solid and not leaking a drop of anything
(yesterday)Installed new driver side mirror (took 5 minutes while drinking) go to install new passenger mirror….. Does not have the right angle (of course, why would it). I do what any self respecting jeep owned does and take it apart and re/drill the bracket install it (2 beers later) and can tell my driver side mirror is 3 inches lower then passenger side (son of a ……….) now its in the box back to amazon and they are sending the replacement (amazon saves the day again).
I drilled out the 2 tubes on the bottom of my factory air cleaner with a varibit to be able cut an opening (I used tin snips) just a little smaller than my 9 5/8" Edelbrock air cleaner bottom. The pictures tell the rest. My apologies for the enormity of the pictures. I will have to figure out how to shrink them down before posting any in the future.
Looks good. I may have to try that.
