I have a 1974 CJ5 that I bought in pieces with no pictures of how things fit. The bottom of the radiator appears to be further "south" than it should be to permit the power steering hoses to fit on the top of the steering box. The box seemed to fit perfectly in the frame, all holes aligned exactly. What am I doing wrong?
Answer this question
They may have put a larger radiator in the Jeep or there might be 2 sets of holes in the mounting flanges. I know on the 76 and up you can use 2 different bolt holes to mount the radiator. It has been 20 years since I've been under the hood of a 75 and older CJ5. There is very little clearance even with the stock radiator that is why the steel part of the hose has the crazy bends in it. I take the radiator bolts out to put the power steering hose in I remember. I hope this might of helped a little but it is a tight squeeze.
