To fill in its background, perhaps now is a good time to give a brief outline of the 30-year-old CJ7. In addition to the GM engine and transmission the Jeep has a set of Advance Adapters exhaust headers, a Dana 300 transfer case with a TerraFlex 4:1 low range, OEM differentials with 4.56:1 gears and ARB lockers (Dana 30 front end has RCV axles; AMC 20 rear end has Warn full-floating axles), Superwinch free-wheeling hubs, Skyjacker 4-inch lift, Goodyear 12.50x15x35 MT/R with Kevlar tires, Alcoa aluminum wheels, Ramsey winch, VDO gauges, and Bestop seats and luggage rack.
This is great. Do you if there are some step by step instuctions available to set the choke back the way it should be after taking it apart for an 87 Jeep wrangler.
T176: If your Jeep happens to have the T176 four-speed transmission, you may choose to retain with your GM engine conversion. Though not suited for wild V8 power or punishing off-roading, mild V8's and V6's and all around trail use make the T176 a good match.
• Adaptability is not difficult, and is accommodated by our#G176 adapter assembly

1977 CJ7 Factory 304 V8. T18-4 Speed, Dana 300 Transfer, Disk Brakes, Selectro Hubs, Power Steering. This is a 40K original mile V8 CJ7, however some things have obviously been upgraded on it. It is now what I would consider the best of the best setups in a CJ7 using original hardware. Its not some off road beater or a wild setup rock crawler, however its capabilities are quite impressive, yet 100% drivable and in show condition. For the most part the jeep is a factory setup and maintains factory integrity. There is something to be said for that if you have been around the block on old Jeeps. The body has been taken off, painted VERY nice and the interior floor is 100% rhino lined. The undercarriage is highly detailed as with every aspect of this Jeep. The motor is an untouched original and it has not ever been out of the frame. The Jeep has an incredible dual exhaust system using stock manifolds and flowmasters, a set of valve covers and a K&N air cleaner. Other than that the 304 is a 40K mile original engine maintaining all factory integrity and reliability. Its sound is what most jeeps can only dream of having too with the rare V8 and great exhaust system.

Unlike my 1966 Porsche 912 restoration or my 1989 Porsche 911/964 performance enhancement project I plan to keep this Jeep pretty close to what it is today. There are things I am planning on doing (sloppy shifter, sloppy steering, questionable wiper motor, new AC unit, etc.), but I intend to simply drive this one. If I do undertake a project or two I will be sure to document it.
While most foreign assemblers focused on the CJ3B, Brazil received the CJ5 instead. After having closed their market to imported cars in 1954, assembly of the "Willys Jeep Universal" (as it was known in Brazil) from CKD kits began in 1957. By 1958 production relied on locally sourced components, with the vehicles equipped with a 90 hp (67 kW) 2.6 liter I6 engine (also used by Willys do Brasil for passenger cars). The Universals came with a three-speed manual transmission. The Brazilian built vehicles are easily recognized by their squared-off rear wheel openings. In 1961, a long wheelbase version, similar to the was added to the line.
I purchased my new-to-me 1979 Jeep CJ7 on September 17th, 2011. I recently sold my 1989 Porsche 911/964 daily driver. Twelve years ago my buddy had a rusted out junker of a Jeep. It was a mess. I loved driving that vehicle as often as he would let me. I've been searching for a "beater" Jeep locally. After not finding one, I placed a Wanted add on Craigslist. Within days I had found my new Jeep.The front Dana 36 is from a 79 with disk brakes as 77 had front drums. The master cyl and lines were changed to the factory 79 disk brake parts. It is open 3:31 with nice Selectro hubs. The rear end is the good heavy duty model 20 Diff with a locker and 3:31s. The Jeep has Rancho 5000s and a 4" lift. As mentioned this has the T18 4 speed, which is the BEST off road transmission ever built with its granny 1st gear and heavy duty case. The Dana 300 transfer case is the one to have too. Driveshafts have been modified properly and balanced. Wheels are American Pioneer 15x10 with BFG 33x12.50s. Winch is a Ramsey 5K, bumpers obvious popular aftermarket models. This Jeep HAS the factory HARD TOP AND DOORS TOO, although I have not put them back on since the body was refinished. The interior with the Rhino lined floor is 100% weatherproof and can be hosed off to clean with drains in it. Seats are aftermarket all weather heavy duty. It goes without saying, this is a NO RUST EVER Jeep. Since this Jeep was upgraded, it has about 1500 miles on it, thus ALL the bugs are out if it. It has the factory working heater and the factory AMC AM radio.
