SOURCE: 1985 cj7 brakes

With the wheel off, give it good hit between the studs, like you were trying to put it on. Hit one side then the other, the drum will start to rock a bit, then pop off. You may want to put the wheel nuts back on as to avoid hitting the studs. Installing the brake shoes is not that simple, best you do one shoe at a time.If you look close there should be 2 different shoes for each side. Back off the adjuster to get the drum back on, this may take a few trys. Also check the brake drum , it may have a wear ridge that will need to be ground off. Hope this helps! Frankster016

As far as I know, timing is "fixed" and cannot be adjusted on that one. To verify see if your distributor has an integral holddown not a seperate piece as you would find on an adjustable one.

SOURCE: replacing front shackle 1983 jeep cj7

Shackles are pretty straight forward. Remove the existing bolts, change the shackles and reverse the procedure to install. Good idea to change the bushings while you're in there if they are at all questionable. It's best to do this with the CJ in the air, supported on the frame and use a floor jack under the axle to lift/lower the spring in/out of the shackle, one side at a time.

SOURCE: 1978 IH Scout II park brake won't work

so.... either the cable is broken, or the parking brake mechanism is missing, broken, rusted? You should be able to crawl under and watch the cables being pulled as somone works the parking brake lever. If they work ok, then its time to pull the wheels off and ck the brakes.

SOURCE: i have the 83 jeep cj7 with the brake light

Hi!!
The brake light switch is located on the upper part of the brake pedal since it is activated by it. It should be the only switch with an electrical connector attached to the pedal.

Where do I locate the fuse of the headlights in a 1984 jeep


Don't believe there is one for headlights. Your jeep is too darn old: I can see wiring diagrams going back to 1986 at a site, so I looked at one for an '86 CJ7. Unfortunately not a complete headlight wiring diagram, however, so you're getting a two bit answer, with inflation worth about 10 cents. lol.

The headlight switch gets power from a fusible link (Fuse link A) that looks like it may be located on the starter solenoid terminal- two fuse links- A & B, there somewhere. But this same fusible link A also supplies power to the fuse block with the park/tail lamps, hazards, brake lights, and a couple others. So if you have stop lights and park lights, then the fusible link is good, so you should have power to the headlight switch. Neither the fuse block, nor the instrumentation diagram, shows any fuses for the headlights. A lot of older vehicles did not have headlamp fuses, because the light switch had a built-in circuit breaker.

My guess is you have a bad dimmer switch, or the connection there may be bad. Or check if you have power to the headlight socket with the light switch on, and if you do, there may be a headlight ground problem.
