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,

http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog/parts/partsProduct.jsp?skuDescription=Fenco+New+/+Master+Cylinder+%28Brake+System%29&categoryDisplayName=&fromString=&itemIdentifier=248428_56045_0_3482&productId=248428&sortType=&parentId=44-0&filterByKeyWord=&isSearchByPartNumber=&navValue=14400007&categoryNValue=14499999&fromWhere=&itemId=7-0&displayName=Master+Cylinder+%28Brake+System%29&store=1623&searchText=&brandName=Fenco+New

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)

You do not add brake fluid to the engine but instead there must be a little container somewhere specifically for the fluid..You need to look properly..

What weight of oil should we put in a 1982 CJ5 Jeep


On an older engine, it's usually best to use a quality name brand oil with a designation of 20W 40. If it has any slight oil leaks, you may want to use one made for "older cars" as those have additives that will restore hardened seals to some degree. You might also want to consider using either marvel oil or lucas treatment to the oil. Both are excellent additives that will not harm seals or internal parts but add some cleaning and protection most conventional oils do not offer. Most important, always use a quality filter. Even the best oils cannot work as they should if not properly filtered.

I have a 1979 Cj5 and it keeps push too much gas into the carborater how do i slow the flow down?


Adjust your mixture screws. If you're not mechanically inclined take it to a shop. Worst case scenario you need your carb rebuilt if the float is toast.

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.

With the engine off, Look down into the carburetor and move the throttle. If you don't see a healthy squirt of fuel. the accelerator pump has failed. The carb may also have deposits in the fuel passageways and may need an overhaul including a good soak in carb cleaning solution.
