Jeep CJ/Scrambler 1971-1986 Repair Guide

Special Tools


See Figures 1, 2, and 3

Normally, the use of special factory tools is avoided for repair procedures, since these are not readily available for the do-it-yourself mechanic. When it is possible to preform the job with more commonly available tools, it will be pointed out, but occasionally, a special tool was designed to perform a specific function and should be used. Before substituting another tool, you should be convinced that neither your safety nor the performance of the vehicle will be compromised.

Some special tools are available commercially from major tool manufacturers, while others are available from the dealership. The tool manufacturer can also be contacted directly at: Service Tool Division Kent-Moore 29784 Little Mack Roseville, MI 48066-2298.
