Hi All. I am doing a complete strip down and rebuild of a 67 CJ5 v6. I am never done this before so I am learning as I go. I am finally taking it in (as a roller) to get a new exhaust system. I am going custom because I have not been able to find after market. I have gotten different opinions on what to do with the heat riser. I have the original coil but I have not idea if it is good. I could not find a replacement coil anywhere. Many tell me to cut out the flap in the heat riser and just use it as a spacer. I read an old post by Moses where I believe he said it is important to leave it in for the function it plays during engine warm up. So now I am not sure what to do. Any advice or direction would be appreciated. Thanks John
I saw this CJ-7 in a barn and it attached itself to my CJ-3B recently and followed me home. I didn't know what to do so I joined this group. I only know how to work on F-heads. I started rubbing on the paint and now its shiny again so I'm going to be forced to make it run now. The head is off and all the parts are in the back. I don't know anything about these modern jeeps (1977) so I think I will need the re-builder's guide. It has a 258 with a 4 speed (granny?), a Spicer 20 transfer case, Front disk brakes, Non-power steering. Factory side mounted spare. Original factory paint (Tawny Orange). Solid floors and minor rust spots under the doors which are missing. It has and EGR/Air guard emissions system but no converter. Since this jeep is a one owner Arizona jeep I'm going to have to make it run again. I dont know why this had to happen to me but I'm hoping this group will help get me up to speed on the 258 engine.
