How do you change the ignition lock on a 1984 Jeep CJ7?

Here's a write-up http://www.epiccomputer.com/dale/jeepjunk/tilt/tilt.html)

my dad made of hot to rebuild an 80's Jeep steering column. (We're Jeep fiends.)

There are two different years covered in the write up and pictures from both a tilt wheel and a non-tilt wheel.

It may not be exactly your model, but you should have enough info to get it done.

The lock cylinder changes sometime between 80 and 85, but we're not sure when because we aren't sure what years all of our stuff came from. But both lock cylinders should be covered in the write-up.

What is the blue book value of a 1979 jeep cj7?

There is no way of saying exactly what the price is. There are too many factors to consider. Rust, mileage, status of title, etc. You can get an old rusty one for $500 or one that has been well kept or rebuilt for upwards of $16,000. Hope this helps!

What is the towing capacity of a 1984 Jeep CJ7 6 cylinder?

2000 lbs gross trailer weight W/ 200 lbs tongue load weight. The towing capacity will be listed in the owners manual and is sometimes listed on the drivers door jam. *** I would never tow more than a loaded Jet Ski / Sea Doo trailer with a short wheel base Jeep CJ or Wrangler. It's just not safe. But if you're going to tow a small car on the back streets, going very slowly for only a couple miles - no problem.

How do you find a deceased parent's 1979 Jeep CJ7 if you don't know the VIN or who the current owner is?

Try getting in touch with the DMV of the town it was registered in. Use the parents name and birthdate to find any registered vehicles they might have registered in last few years. If you have a pic of the vehicle with a clear view of the license plate, you can use the license plate # to track down a VIN with the DMV. If that isn't going to fly with the DMV, find out who insured the vehicle. Call them and request a copy of the insurance information. Explain to them your predicament. If you can find a VIN, you can request a search with the DMV for any and all jeeps of that year registered. If it's not registered... maybe found its way to a wrecking yard, you can ask to run it bye the auto recyclers listings "lists all vehicles salvaged and dismantled by VIN". Good Luck.

Where can you add speakers in a 1976 Jeep CJ 5?

Answer

you can add them to your roll bar JC Whitney sell kits for jeeps

Answer

In addition to roll bar kits, you can have your local stereo shop make boxes for 6x9 speakers and mount them in the back on top of the rear fenders.

Answer

I order boxes that fit 6X9 behind the front seats right where the roll bar is...they are plastic and wrap around the roll bar...work perfect had them for years also in an ideal location that doesnt take up space and protects from the elements since it is mounted vertical...

AnswerWe have a CJ5. My best conclusion would also put in on the roll bar or the underside or where normally the glove box would be. You can keep the Stereo or which ever you use under neath the passenger seat; there should be a compartment that flips up and open.
Besides that there's always the compartment to the left of the steering wheel.

Can a 1979 Jeep CJ7 with V8 304 be towed all 4 wheels down or just the rear wheels down without unhooking anything?

standard trans. put it in neutral, auto trans. drop driveshafts

AnswerP.S., standard trans. ALSO put transfer case in neutral

If it's a Dana 300 transfer case it will not get oil to the output bearing'

add an oil slinger on the output shaft or drop the rear driveshaft. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. If four wheels are down then unlock front hubs too.

What larger motor housing uses the same bolt pattern as a Jeep CJ blower motor?

TO UPGRADE THE HEATING SYSTEM IN CJ'S AFTER 1977 IT IS POSSIBLE TO INSTALL A BLOWER MOTOR FROM A 72-73 CHEVY BLAZER/PICKUP TRUCK. IT IS A BOLT IN SWAP. THE ONLY THING YOU WILL HAVE TO MODIFY IS THE HOLE IN THE FIREWALL THAT THE BACK OF THE BLOWER MOTOR FITS THROUGH, IT HAS TO BE ENLARGED. HERE IS A WEB ADDRESS THAT DETAILS THE SWAP...http://www.4x4wire.com/jeep/tech/interior/cjheater

How do you remove a broken dipstick tube that is broken flush with the engine block of a 1975 Jeep CJ5?

ANSWER; I would try a long thin magenet. If that doesn't work get something similar to the dipstic but a little thinner. If yiu can see the possition of the broken stick, take the thinner stick and put some type of glue on it and possition it against the broken one and give it time to dry. You could do both by putting glue on the magnet. You may need a cleaning solvent to spray down the hole to help with the glue OR drop the pan. BrittI had the same thing happen with my 85. most of the time when it breaks you can still see a little of it or you can feel it with a finger nail. if that is the case you can usually use a punch or a screw driver to ben the tube enough to grab it with a set of needle nose pliers. Other than that you can use a tap of the right size (not too big or you'll tap the block). drive it until you feel it grab and pull on the tap. hope this helps and good luck.

i took a bolt or screw that was close to the same size as the tube and screwed it in a bit , got it as tight as i possibly could , then i pulled out the tube, it took a couple of trys but it finally came out. beware it is longer then you think, i believe it was close to three inches fro mthe block down inside it. and its a pain tryingto find a replacment one , unless you hit a junkyard.

You may be able to bend a tight hook into the end of a piece of coathanger wire. Send it down through the tube, then pull it up to hook the end of the tube and pull the tube out enough to get a grip on it.

What is the correct timing for the MSD Ignition System on a Jeep J10 360 4bbl?

There is no definite answer to that. The book will probably say 10* BTDC but I get the best performance and no pinging at 15-16*. I think the book is usually pretty conservative. This sounds old school, but you will get the best results by timing it to best idle, then backing it off a hair at a time if it starts hard.

How do you fix the horn on a 1985 CJ7 if will not blow at all?

Check the fuse. If it is good, run 12 volts directly to the horn. If it does not blow, replace it. If it does, look for a short, broken or loose connection.

What is wrong if the fuses keep blowing in a cj8 scrambler?

If a fuse is blowing, there is a short in the wiring or component included in that circuit. You need to get a wiring diagram, and follow whatever circuit the fuse is on. Probably a wire rubbing against the body/frame, but could be a short inside an electrical component. A volt/ohm meter would be very helpful, or just take it to a repair shop. There is no simple answer to such a vague question. make sure the diode on your alternator is okay as well...(just a thought)

Jeep DJ-5 fuel tank sending unit wiring diagram?

I dont know what year you have, but I just installed a racing fuel cell in my 76 "C"J-5 and the wire that I hooked the positive to was pink. I of course ran a separate ground for the remaining lead. You can sometimes check the back of the speedo at the fuel guage and check the color there.

If your search for auto manuals on ebay.com, there is a reputable company that sells manuals for all sorts of vehicles for like $5.00. That is where I got my 1999 Mirage manual. Hope this helps. Go to the auto parts store and they can look it up for you. If not, call a dealer.
