SOURCE: where do you add brake fluid

Please don't add brake fluid to the engine, you'll ruin it. Brake fluid is added to the Brake Master Cylinder.

Hood open, viewing your Jeep from the front, (Facing the windshield)
The Brake Master Cylinder is on the upper right, mounted fairly close under the windshield.
(If you have Power Brakes it is mounted on a Power Booster. If you do not have power brakes it is mounted directly to the firewall)

This link below will show you what it looks like,

This link shows what the brake master cylinder looks like, not installed. You are looking at the back view of it.
From the mounting flange that has a hole on each side, to the tip of that rod sticking out, is a view you will not see.

The photo is to illustrate the top cover, and the wire looking device that holds the cover on.

Viewing the Jeep from the front, the wire device you see is moved to the ->Right.
A common tool used to move it would be a sturdy flat tip screwdriver.
It is very stiff to move, but be sure you are trying to move it the correct direction.

When you go to fill the master cylinder the proper level for the brake fluid is one-eighth inch below the rim edge. (1/8th inch)

You will see two compartments. You will also see that the master cylinder sits at an angle. It's angled toward the back. The back edge of each compartment's rim edge, is what you use to judge the brake fluid level. (1/8th inch below that edge)

Where do I put transmission fluid in 1958 Rolls Royce?


Mine is a little newer, but the dipstick tube is the usual place to refill, use a funnel, pour in only a few ounces at a time, then check the level with the engine running. Do not over fill it. Hope this helps.

You can't have everything in the correct position or the drum would mount. Take a good look again. "Make sure" each part is correctly positioned and make sure the adjustment wheel is correct and that the parking brake is not engaged..

I need a diagram for a 1965 cadillac tilt telescoping column


Dave , I have one in my cj5. The info I got on it was that it was out of a Cadillac Fleetwood from 69-1976. I was able to get a switch from Rock auto for it.It is basicly the same as any other GM column. They were also use in other gm models in those years. Larry n6ifp@sbcglobal.net

How do i check my transmission fluid on my 1980


Normally there will be a plug, about 5/8" square on side of transmission about halfway up or higher that comes out and you simply use your finger in the hole. slide finger in to first joint, and bend it down. If it is touching fluid, your good, if not add until it does. Check manual if you still have it, or ask at parts store,but most likely 80/90 gear oil.

Leaking front drivers side brake line


Have some one step on brake while you watch for the leak. The fittings for the extention may not be the same as the OE line causing a leak.
