    1960 Jeep CJ....come in out of the cold

    It always seems like I'm doing a project when I don't have the right place do it. I have been looking for something to do to fill my time now that I'm home off the road working. Quite a few of my friends have classic cars that I've been working in the garage with them for quite sometime.

    My decision for project was made once I saw her, here are a few pictures from the ad off the Internet.




    Here's a picture of the jeep leaving the sellers house...



    And finally the last picture I'll leave you with her being delivered today...



    More to come ....

    Call the decision was made, (wife's blessing) we are going to try to get the jeep on the road for the summer and restore in the winter. So now it's time to do what jeep owners do best...throw it back together.

    Step 1....new fuel pump





    Napa over night .


    Ran like phoo.. No spark in cylinder closeist to the firewall.



    Cleaned up the cap and rotor....new plugs....and whala...

    Brake Question for you guys...........

    Now that she’s running and I took her for a spin down the lane way and back its time to figure out the brakes.... The lines all look good but the pedals don't seem right and the master cylinder is in two pieces.

    When I push the clutch in the brake pedal goes in....is that right.

    I have labeled a pic for you guys to reference.

    A--- Brake Arm (Brake Pedal Connects to this)
    B--- Clutch Linkage
    C--- Clutch Arm (Clutch Pedal Goes into this)
    D--- Master Cylinder Linkage



    I hope I got this right.

    Anyhow.... Correct me if I am wrong.... I am looking to understand how this works, should they move independently?

    I have the service manual but its not very in depth about the pedals.
    Thanks in advance…..

    Here is a pic of the master cylinder




    Here is the arm that the clutch and brake pedal swivel on.

    The problem solved

    Okay so tonight after work I took it apart and cleaned it up on the wire wheel.
    A friend at work told me to remember to keep it simple.
    And simple it is.

    How hard is this part going to be to find?

    It's the piece where the brake line screws into the master clyinder.
    Made of brass.
