All the Jeeps I've seen come with a heavy cover for the front axle, almost 1/8" thick. It's vulnerable to rock hits. The rear cover is thin, like 16-18 ga I'd guess. The lightweight rear covers with...

As I recall, many places are selling the wrong pump as compatible with 1972. If you look at the pump from the side, the later pump has a thicker tower (larger front bearing) and reinforcing ribs...

I would try torquing the oil filter adapter to factory specs before I took it apart. There's not a lot you can do - check the surfaces for flatness, replace the gasket. Possible you could use some...

I believe at some point around 1980 they went from nice-to-have to required-by-law. Dumping ethylene glycol on the street where it runs into storm drains pollutes the storm water runoff. Modern...

Not present in '76, AFAIK. My '77 had none.

Looking at the parts book, 1977 was the first year, and only with HD cooling. Different radiator for HDC has the overflow on the driver's side too.

I would guess it's there to hold the filler tubes in the body before the body meets the frame on the assembly line. Possible you can delete it now without any effect.

A T-98 from a 1971 or earlier CJ-5 will bolt up to a 134 cid L-head or F-head Willys engine. You also need the plate adapter. Is that what you are asking?
