Trying to restore a 1948 willys jeep need to know how and where to install oil filter did they not have oil filters originaly


Oil filters were not used 'till the early to mid 1950's. Today's oils are of much higher quality than what was available back then and changing at 3,000 mile intervals should be all you need. If you were updating to a newer block, you could run the filter in the place provided or use a remote mount if there is any interference. You also could run a "bypass" filter (Amsoil makes one) that is passive, but will give you some filtration.....better than none at all. If you are re- building the engine, you may want to tighten up your clearances a bit if you intend to use a multi-viscosity oil...otherwise use a single weight but quality brand.

Infinity gold radio seems to work but cant get any sound


It's really hard to answer a question such as this. There's barely enough information to reach any type of conclusion. What kind of Jeep? Cherokee? Grand Cherokee, Wrangler? Renegade? Liberty? I could just keep going. Maybe it's a Willys 1942? I really don't know. However, based on what little information you've provided I'll give a little answer. Fuse. How's that. No. Wait, if it's an infinity system it has a factory amp. If only I knew which year and model...Hmmm, Cherokee's and Grand Cherokees have them under the back seat. Does yours have a fuse in it? I don't know BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT YEAR AND MODEL IT IS.

Have a delcotron alternator ,what to know where no.1 terminal and no.2terminal wire goes it is on my 1946 cj2a jeep my amp hand does not show a charge had alternator checked out and is ok


  • Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.

  • 3

    Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."

  • 4

    Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.

  • 5

    Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.

  • 6

    Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.

  • 7

    Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 8

    Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 9

    Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.

    Need fog light installation instructions


    Stop by your local Jeep dealership and ask teh service tech to go over the schematic and wiring diagram with you.
    Most Jeep service depts. are quite helpful and won't charge you for knowledge.
    Then head over to NAPA and get the parts for cheap.
    If you are restoring to factory specs for show car purposes, you should get the MOPAR parts right from the dealer.
    Most of the time the Jeep Wranglers have the wiring already in place, you just have to know where to look for the unused plug. At least that's how it is with my 2007 JKL Rubicon.

    Need to rewire entire jeep


    If you want to rewire the vehicle, assuming that you will not be changing any systems, you can usually find complete new wiring harnesses from both the dealer and from aftermarket selllers like Quadratec and JC Witney.  Buying the complete wiring harnesses will be alot cheaper and less time consuming than trying to make them yourself.  These wire assemblies are just a plug and play deal, you disconnect a harness and replace it with the new one.  They may even include some instructions. If you need further assistance with custom wiring or diagnosis, I would recommend getting the service manual for the vehicle from the dealer or used ones from eBay ($30- $100).  The factory service manuals have complete wiring diagrams and schematics as well as full diagnostic information.  These service manuals are NOT like the ones found at your local parts store (Chilton or Haynes).  The factory service manuals are like complete blueprints for a car.
