Question about 1983 Jeep CJ7

Open Question

Rusted windshield frame

Instead of buying a metal windshield frame I bought the fiberglass frame so I will not have to worry about the windshield frame rusting out again.I bought all new rubber to install, but before I take off the old steel frame I need to know if I screwed up or not. I have a soft top and a hard top for the1983 Jeep CJ 7. I need to know if the hard top will work with a fiberglass windshield frame? If so do I need different attachment screws to hold the front of the hardtop to the fiberglass windshield frame? Your help would be greatly appreciated. grampy55

SOURCE: 1994 Jeep Wrangler 4cyl - Bleeding slave cylinder

This is not a bleeder hole, this is a weep hole like in a water pump to see when there is seepage past the seals.

Bench bleed the system. With the master cyl. line and slave cyl assembled, place the master cylinder in a vise, fill the master cyllinder. actuate the slave cylinder back and forth lower than the master cyl. This will allow the air to escape upwards back into and out of the master cyl.
Once bled the system can be installed.

Good Luck

no that should not be a problem but if you are worried about the rust spray some penatrating oil around the holes and then try after about 30 min.

SOURCE: rusted subframe

You may need to get rid of it. If the frame is rusted, it's only going to get worse. If the motor mount is not sitting just right, it will only get worse too. I would either sell it as is or have a welder to look at it to see if it's repairable.

SOURCE: replace rear passenger brake line on 1993 cutlass

If you want to do this yourself, just remove the brakeline. Go to a parts store and buy the length of brake line that you need. Most brake lines are 3/8" or 1/4" so get the right size. Get the brake line fittings. You will need tubing cutter, tubing bender, and flairing tool. Just cut it to the right length, bend it to the right shape, and install it. Presto!!! New brake line! Hope this helps. Good luck.

Water leaking unto front floor carpet when driving through rain

Check around the edges of the windshield for any place water could be forced into the car. Especially if the windshield has been replaced. Check around the cowl that covers your windshield wiper motor. Remove the cowl if possible to check for rust holes or separated seams in the metal. The blower motor intake for the cars HVAC (heater) is often under this cowl. Make sure water isn't getting in through there. If you find a leak around the windshield or a separated seam, some windshield urathane or clear bathroom caulking would work. If you find a rust hole in a non visible place affix a tin or metal patch over it using rivets or your choice of fastener. Welding is the best method. Then cover the patch with short strand fiberglass bondo or something else to seal out water. If you have a hole in the floor you could put a patch on it with rivets or weld, then tar the underside well and put rocker panel coating on the top.

There is really rust issure on the rear wheelwells on the box, how can i fix it without going to an autobody shop? Would like to try to fix it myself but don't know which direction to turn

Well, you could buy a wire welder and weld new metal on to the rusted out areas. This will set you back $150 to $350 though to buy it. Maybe you can find someone to rent the machine to you to weld metal onto the rust areas.

Or, you could replace the bed which will come with newer or new metal compared to what you have.

What do you mean by 'on the box'? Do you mean the frame is rusted?

1998 ford windstar 3.8 rusted through oil pan leaking Estimated cost to fix... Can something be done other than replacing oil pan ?

I had a similar problem with my Pontiac Grand Prix. I solved it by buying some windshield sealer (available at an auto parts store), finding a short sheet-metal screw, LIBERALLY applying the glue to the screw, and screwing it into the leaky hole. I drove the car for years like this - NEVER had another oil leak, and sold the car.

I have a rusted roof on my ford ranger. Should I fix it with fiberglass or bondo?

IF it's surface rust you should sand down to bare metal, prime then paint. If it's holes and you don't want to weld in new sheet metal patches then go with bondo

I am currently looking to buy a 1998 volkswagen Golf, The front right suspension casing is rusted and has begun separating from the frame is this costly to fix?

Very costly and not really a good way to fix it,the car has no actual frame and relies on the structure of the metal for stability.

Frame is can I support it

If the frame is rusted you can weld in pieces up plate metal to fix it. If you don't weld or can't get welding done you might be able to bolt a peace a piece of metal. But welding is preferred. You could also go to junk yard and get a different frame or cut out a piece of frame from a junkyard truck. Good luck.

The frame is rusted out. there are holes all theough it and i dont have much money.

The frame, or just the body? A rusted frame is dangerous specially if it has holes. Welding on them is not recommended cuz it will make the metal hard and brittle. You can't do anything with a rusted frame with holes on it.

Frame rusted thru on 1996 se v6 king cab 4x4

cutting a section off of another old frame to fix yours isn't worth it. it would be easyer to take it to a metal shop and have them fix it. at least you know that the repair will last.
