The power steering could be factory. I know on my 74, the pump its on the passenger side of the motor with the hoses running around the front of the motor to the box.

As far as the other parts, I'll ask about a rebuild kit and shoes for the rear, but the e-brake parts might be harder to find.

Update:

I did some quick searching on the oriellys website and found the hardware kit, hoses, and drums in stock at my local store. The listed the shoes, but not in stock. I know they should be available if you are willing to wait a few days.

They also list a throttle cable in stock. It will probably be worth your time to talk to your local parts house for many of your needs.

I never think about O'reilys. I just hit up autozone. I'm a stop by there when I get off in the morning.

The PO said it has a 4" lift and it has a 3" body lift. I personally hate body lifts so it's gettin tossed when I pull tub for a lil rust repair. 4" lift 33s should be fine right?

Oh and yes the ps pump is on passenger side of engine with hoses running under radiator.

Did these come with heaters? I have no heater core, dash controls, nothin. I'm not worried about heat I'm just curious.

Yes, they did. Mine was incomplete when I got it, but mostly there.

If you want, check out my build thread. There is a link in my signature.

As for the carb, to start with I'd rebuild the YF. It's *really* easy to do and doesn't cost much. I think I pay about $20 every year for a rebuild kit and the process takes maybe 20 minutes. That'll familiarize you with the process in general and what a carb looks like on the inside. Then, later, you might consider upgrading (though I like my YF just fine for the types of driving I do).

Locked em in and drove it around yard. Front driver side would lock and spin but passenger side "in pic" did nothin.

I found the $20 carb kit. It's gonna be ordered. I think with a lil you tube assistance it should go ok on the rebuild.

That could just be an open differential. Unless the front axle is locked somehow, both wheels must be locked in to get either wheel to pull out spin.

I feel like a idiot. My bad I shoulda known that. Anyhow I'm a pull both hubs and grease em well.

What's best sheet metal for repair panels? I've always used 16ga on other projects that be adequate enough for a old jeep?

You only want a light coating of something like white lithium style grease in the hubs. Too much or heavy grease binds up in the cold.
