If this were my Jeep, I would check and reseat all the grounds first. Strange behavior in these circuits can result from back-feeding of current through other parts of the circuit when the ground is...

Die grinder is a good idea. Why that shape of bit? I presume you dished out the weld with the lower corner of the cylinder.

IIRC the '73 TSM (first year for the QT!) gives a recipe for Quadratrac fluid that is ND (non-detergent) 30W motor oil plus limited slip additive. Likely they dropped that from the TSM when AMC/Jeep...

The oil pump cover could be perfect, and you could still have low oil pressure. Note that the oil gets thinner as the engine warms up. It also loses its multivis character as it gets old. Both of...

The last rebuilt AMC Motorcraft distributor I bought had a clearly rebuilt vacuum diaphragm. The builder pried open the can and replaced the diaphragm. This does no provide much hope that these...

Yep, same part. QT CJ-7s are fairly scarce though, only CJ-7s with an automatic '76-79.

Good point about the springs on backwards, wiley-moe.

Looks nice! if an automatic, it's got to be a TH400 with Borq-Warner Quadratrac. Very often these are converted to part time with a kit from Mile Marker. In that case, you can fit front locking hubs...

The V8 transmission is longer than the 6-cylinder transmission. Look under the Jeep and you'll see the long adapter on the T-18 that fits a V8 truck. No adapter on the 6 4-speed. An '80 4-speed is a...

Buy new u-bolts, or get them with the springs. Technically you're not supposed to reuse them. I cut the old bolts at the top of the arch with a cutting disk in the die grinder. They are under a lot...

If not maintained or repaired in time, they can come apart and the driveshaft will likely whack a hole in the side of your transmission case. Pretty common for your vintage of Cherokee. Be aware.

A reverse arch like that is from fatigue. Leaf springs typically sag with time and use. One good reason why lift kits are so popular for these Jeeps.

Sagging leaf springs also affect the suspension...
