SOURCE: Rear Axle Seal Replacement

remove rear tires, then remove brake calipers and rotors, then remove the 4 nuts (each side) that hold the axle shafts to the axle tube (located around the axle tube behind the backing plate) then using a slide hammer pull the axle shafts out, next using a die grinder and an air hammer get he retainer collar and the bearing off (without damaging the axle shaft) then remove the seal and the outer race which will still be in the housing. next put it all back together, make sure the plate with the studs is still on then slide the seal, bearing, then retainer on (all new parts) and using a press push them all the way back on. then is simple reassembly.

SOURCE: replacing a rear axle on a 94 jeep grand cherokee 2wd

take the rear cover off of the rear end. make sure you have something to let the fluid drain in. turn the carrier until you see a 5/16ths bolt. take the bolt out and let the pin in the center of the carrier slide down enough to be able to slide the axle inward. that will release the c-clip. then when the c-clip i removed you can just pull the axle out of the houseing but mak sure to not let the carrier spin any while you are pulling the axle out.

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)

With the engine running in neutral, punch it and see if it bogs down. If it it does and all you hear is the carb gasping (for lack of better word) it may be a slight timing issue. Here are a few ideas to try:
Check vacuum advance at the distributor to see if vacuum.
Is the ignition electronic or manual distribution?
If manual:
File points/check point gap (You could also replace the points and condenser).
Either ignition:
Put a timing light to the engine is slightly out of time and adjust.
Hope this helps... Good luck fellow CJ5 Jeepster!

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.

I have a 1979 cj 5, i can't keep my front spindle nuts tight. the tab on the outer washer is not long enough to bend over the outer nut, what am i doing wrong?

Generally if you bend the washer up against the flat side of the nut they generally don't move. Not sure what you could be doing wrong. It doesn't generally take that much to hold that nut from turning.

You will need to take the ring gear housing off to get to the retaining clip inside the chunk. Once removed the axil will come out. I had a 47 and that is what I had to do

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.
