That is what I was thinking. There was a reason the PO did it. I have seen it done many times. I switched mine out for YJ wipers and linkage. The crown ones would bind and bend.

OK Mr. John

What sorta heater are you sticking in the '76???

----JEEPFELLER
Who Me?

A complete system out of an 84 CJ7.

Attachment 3921543

Attachment 3921547

Just a little modification to the glove box:

Attachment 3921553

Biggest problem was enlarging the fresh air intake. The 84 had rolled over edges to help direct the
flow of water. I'm depending upon the grill to do that.

The heater box didn't fit this time because I flipped the bolts for the battery shelf around and the heater box couldn't sit flush with the fire wall because the bolts were too long. .
I flipped the bolts around and fit perfectly.

Parts are easier to get for the heater and the heat output with the Blower upgrade can't be beat.

JEEPFELLER bob4703,

We had a pretty good time up there with y'all.

I thought y'all were taking up a big donation to fund our 55 mile trek.

I guess we all lost track of it when all of those females started swarming all over me and George!

Tomorrow I might install my new rear main seal/ pan gasket/ oil change on Willy,

He should be ready for the next return trip, George says he's game too.

He just don't realize what the women situation will be like when we pull up in Willy!

Also check out the green holes in the old plate. That's where my PO made a poor mans tilt wheel.
He lowered the end of the steering column so the steering wheel sat higher.
No wonder I had no Problem fitting behind the wheel in my '5

Just so you guys know I wasn't sitting on my butt today I also
1. Installed fresh air Plenum made sure all flaps work properly
2. Installed heater assembly after discovering why it wouldn't fit before.
3. Installed new defrost duct and diverters.
4. Drilled holes to attach courtesy lights on the new dash.
5. Removed old steering column.
6. Cut and weld the Tuffy glove box to fit in it's new location


The yellow holes are for the factory spot welds that held that plate to the firewall. You have figured out what the U shaped orange hole is for and I have not been able to find a picture with anything going through the 2nd orange hole, but have found pictures that show a bumpout in the firewall the stands proud into that hole so it was there for something.

Thanks, I kind of suspected that U shape was for the hose but wasn't sure.

I thought this was off a 84 CJ but maybe it was an YJ tub on a CJ I took it off.

I found this picture but it's a copy of a copy of something Fatman posted. So I don't know the history.

bob4703 Last night I took the Bikini top off, filled the cooler with water and Gatoraide and took the boss to our Jeep Club's monthly cruise in. Last month we had over 60 Jeeps of various types. Last night about half that number showed up. Last night we had 12 CJs to show up so we were the majority.

The last to show was fellow JF member Jeepfellow and his grandson George in his 79 CJ5 complete with canoe. It was good to meet them and Nelson you are welcome back anytime, but I'm going to hold you to the promise to bring the CJ2A. The Boss said you have to bring George. He was a big hit with her and the other ladies--not a bad choice for a wingman.

John Strenk Got some new LED tail lights installed.
It was tricky.

Attachment 3921327

Had to do some grinding first

Attachment 3921373

Then it fit

Attachment 3921371

Then some welding to finish it up.

PhillyDak Cj7 is holding its water, so far. Ran for about a half hour and no leak. So far so good.

Installed the hood and all its stuff...hinges, latches, tie downs and rod to hold it open. Double check me, ball end of rod is held to the hood by a plate with a round hole and the other end goes into a bracket attached to grill/radiator rod.

PhillyDak RN, that makers perfect sense and I wish I had leaned that sooner. Started first with jb weld... another lesson learned.

It is my understanding that some of the block and radiator sealers require oxygen or atmosphere as they seep out so to cure properly. Not sure 100% but if you use JBweld and it does it's job the other sealer is not going to know what to fix. I would use the block sealer first the crack will be there if it doesn't work.

KWIKCJ5 I took mine to the local 1/8 mile drags strip last night. Traction was a big problem, BFG all terrains are not drag slick! Best I could do was 8.5’s at 88 MPH My 60’ times were terrible 2.20’s. It was fun though!

Thanks! Ever since I broke mine, a lot of people have been saying the same thing.

Ever try the HD output?

I typically ripped the case in half, or lost the gears. I haven’t broke one since I put the cal track bars on.
