Yes awful.

but is it the right fusepanel for the chief?

looks different as the picture from the TSM
and what is the green round part withe the red wire??

That is the correct fuse panel for the truck, as far as the green part, not factory( looks real scary) but is some sort of resistor? What do the wires go to? You need to repair or replace the set up from a generic wiring harness or a specific replacement, both are available. Still thats not the worst I have seen....

79 "should" have blade style fuses but Jeep changed a bunch of minor things that year. yours may have been a very early build?
or someone could have swapped/replaced it?

That's the date sold, not the build date.
For US built vehicles model year changeover on the assembly line is generally in July so yours could have been built anywhere between xxJUL78-FEB79 and often previous model year parts were installed in the early days depending on parts inventory.

Bumper Looks like 3 Pieces
VIN Starts J9A17

That will be a 78' most likely and the fuse panel would be correct. you can clean up the fuse block and purchase the correct fuses for it and it will be good or change out to the later style with the ato/blade fuses which will make it easier to find replacements, its up to you. ( fix the wiring no matter what!)

Yes i will clean it up.
And look for new fuses

Thanks to all of you

wincher 01-13-2020 02:26 PM

OK,
so we can say it is more a 78 than a 79 model.
The razor grill and the 3 piece bumber is original although it is a J9 VIN Number.
right?



I will use the 1977 TSM from oljeep for electrical
Where to find a better picture from the fuse panel as in the 1977 wiring diagram ?


Have found the fusepanel at page 128 of the 1977 owners manual...
just looking for the green "hulk" :-)

babywag 01-13-2020 02:54 PM

78 is different than 77 for some of the wiring.
In 1978 Jeep changed charging system and ignition system.

That green thing was added it is not stock and not gonna find a pic of it.

https://www.carburetor-parts.com/Car...CFM_p_730.html


this is the kit for the carter... will buy them.

Spec sizes for the 9637 carburetor are:
FORD
625 CFM UNIVERSAL
12094
9637S, 9637SA
AFB
Primary: .098
Secondary: .095
Rods: 70x47

for comparison only:
Edelbrock 1406: Metering Rod Size .075 x .047 in
Primary Jet Diameter 0.98
Secondary Jet Diameter 0.095Main Venturi Diameter 1.19


the jets are equal, but the rod size might be different to the 1406
(In case it got not changed )



it is a aftermarket carburetor for Ford..
It is not easy for me to order parts because the shipping to germany
But I have a opportunity for shipping in a few weeks.

Thanks Tony,


for the 78 model is no manual availlable, or?

rang-a-stang 01-13-2020 03:17 PM

Yeah, you're probably going to have to follow the wires and see where they lead. I also notice 2 of your fuses are bypassed (wires wrapped around the fuses). Pay special attention to those circuits. A previous owner probably kept blowing those fuses and instead of finding out why/fixing it, they put wires around the fuses.

If you have a 3 piece bumper, round headlights, I would work on your truck like its a 78. Maybe, because it was shipped over seas, the timing of it all, made a late 78 title/VIN'ed/Registered as a 79.

As far as the shifter linkage, I think the best way to find the slop is to start either at the shift handle in the truck or the U-shaped bracket at the trans and start looking for slop. I agree, the bracket looks loose. Mine does not have a bushing between the U-shaped bracket on the trans and the shifter either.

What is the "56 orange 16 " under the "54 yellow 16"
I think the 54 yellow 16 is the switch for kickdown in the transmission?
The other end is the kickdown switch near the pedal.
But the 56 orange16?
Goes to a cluster connection and with wire 9B black 18 to the seat belt buzzer..

babywag 01-14-2020 03:40 PM

Cluster light bulb for QT e-drive iirc for 56
