JEEP HISTORY
First standard transmission driven in 1962
was a military jeep at a crop duster strip
in S LA. Bought a gray 1984 CJ7, kept it a
couple years, sold it. Bought this
midnight blue 1982 CJ7 drove it home f W
VA in the year 2013 & didn't mess with
it for ~2 years. Got into it: Installed
new Weber 32/36 DGEV 2 bbl carburetor but
kept original air cleaner, new 1"
longer spring shackles, new leaf springs,
new shocks, new wheels (17"), new
tires Goodyear MT/Z new power steering
gearbox & pump, swapped original T4
for a used (ebay) Borg-Warner T5
transmission (not for heavy duty use),
blocked the EGR ports, eliminated exhaust
manifold leaks: it was extremely loose in
steering and hard to find transmission
gear but NOW it's tight. Added steering
gearbox brace: this tightened steering
some more. Still got it, daily driver.
Want to fab an alum hard top but probably
start with a hard bikini top. Need radio
& rhino-line cab, re-paint exterior
probably either school bus yellow or olive
drab.
