Question about 1985 Jeep CJ7

1 Answer

I have a 1984 jeep CJ7 that has been sitting for 5 years. I finally had it started and the engine sounds great, but now it doesn't- the jeep-move. I can also just shift the gears without having to depress the clutch---but no movement of the vehicle---my gears are inoperable...what could be the cause of this? Clutch or transmission and why could this have happened?

    1984 jeep cj7's do not have a clutch slave cylinder, they have just a clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. so it is more likely your clutch is stuck put a new clutch in and it will be fine and thats for sure for a fact....

I need a new fuse box for my 1984 cj7


On a car that old I would shoot for a serviceable used replacement as opposed to a new one. Only a dealer could find you a new one and that is doubtful. Look for used jeep parts on ebay or craiglist and many junkyards have their inventory online, bear in mind that it is slim pickens finding parts for vehicles over 10 years old.

TIMING ON OVERHAULED ENGINE


if you overhauled the engine and replaced the timing chain & gears, as long as you installed them properly and have installed the ign wires in the right places, the distributor is "locked in place" and is non adjustable (unless you are me, but that's another story) Computer makes all timing changes.
