    Anyone recognize these brackets? I just got my seats back from the restoration upholsterer, and they were attached to the bottom of the drivers seat on my 1966 CJ 5A. They have holes that the bolts protruding from the sliding mechanism drop right into.

    I couldn’t figure out a way to use them to install the seat onto the bracket that goes over the fuel tank…and they are longer than the bottom
    of the seat, and the seat bottom bolts dropped right into the existing round bar bracket. Thanks to Rubicloak here’s the seat diagram:

    So I’m not sure they are even from a jeep. Anyone have any ideas?

    I think those brackets you have are for the earlier Tux seats that use springs instead of the foam (foam seats were new for the ‘66 model year). The correct seats and mounts for your ‘66 are shown in Rubicloak’s diagram.
    The ‘64/‘65 Tux used a front crossbar (support) with 2 square plates welded on, and separate riser brackets that bolted to the bed floor behind the tank. Your bars connected the two, and gave a mounting plate for the slide adjuster. The early Tux used a unique slide adjuster where the handle sticks out the left side by the fuel filler.
    When I get back to the Keys, I will look at a set I have to try to verify if I remember correctly.

    Hey guys, just got a “new” 1959 CJ5, not running. It sat in a woods for about 5 years. I’m troubleshooting the ignition and I would like to get new points, cap, and rotor. While looking for engine info I discovered this isn’t the 134 engine. Does anyone know what this is? I know it’s a Ford, their logo is on the intake manifold.

    Yup. Pinto, pretty close to completely bulletproof, as long as you change the oil regularly, and keep it cool.

    NP. I'd call that a score, if the engine runs.

    Just purchased a 53' M38A1. Ran so well he parked it 8 years ago (at least 20). Need help Identifying the motor. Underside of the hood was labeled 1962 Buick 225. Which would be great if they made a 225 in 62'. Haven't been able to locate any markings or find clear descriptions of where to start scraping/deep cleaning. I'm sure it is either a 198 or a 225. Does anyone here know where to find the production code or any other tips on how to distinguish between the two?

    Welcome from sunny Massachusetts. The technical library has a document with casting numbers.
    http://www.earlycj5.com/xf_cj5/index.php?pages/Tech-Index/

    First year for the 225 in a Buick was '64 IIRC, though a 198 could be a '62. I can tell the 225 from the 198 by the bell pattern, but maybe not by sight with the engine in place. Somebody here might be able to, if you post some pictures.

    The casting numbers document is great. Do you know where those numbers might be located on the block? Here are some quick photos, can't see much of the bell housing. Screenshot 2022-07-07 184633.png Screenshot 2022-07-07 184750.png

    Figured it out. Casting # is just above the bell housing. Head casting number is very visible if you pull the valve covers. It is a 1962 198cid. Right year, wrong displacement. Was hoping for the other way around. Thanks for your help.

    To me, the 198 is not so terrible. I gather it's a fine engine as long as you don't need to rebuild it. As an oddball, replacing the internal parts is expensive, but no different from any other V-engine of the era. Usually not a problem, considering the low miles most CJ-5 owners add to their Jeeps annually ... I'd check it out, tune it up and drive it. (y)

    Covered in discussions regarding the 198, 215 and other similar Rover engines in older posts.

    Maybe a bracket for a clutch linkage return spring.
