    I'm glad to hear that all of the light stuff got straightened out.

    I've made aircraft harnesses with knotted ropes and plywood - that is a good layout tool.

    And, you used the universal tool to fix the dimmer switch - a bigger Hammer!

    You're getting pretty close ....

    Good deal. You would be surprised on how many issues we have with new out of the box wiring harnesses. Pins not fully indexed, or the wire locks are busted. Being that the harnesses are made by the lowest bidder, in a shack in either Canada or Mexico. Million dollar combat vehicles shouldn't have foreign made parts, period. But even the CAT engine is made in Brazil. Global market we are told, crap is what we get.
    Hammers are the best universal tools. If a small hammer doesn't work, increase the size until it is fixed, or you feel better. It may not totally fix the problem, but you will be at a starting over point.

    I'll look in the morning to see if there are replacement red lenses available.

    ?? "... what happens with too much brake fluid?? ..."

    In the truck you have to lay under the truck and fill the master cylinder upside down and blind. There is not even a plate in the floorboard to get to it!

    When it gets full, it runs down your arm. I don't think you can overfill - it just runs over and drips .. but I've never played with an M38A1.

    Did you get the High Beam light on the cluster figured out?

    Hitting a bumblebee in the backside is bad for you and the bee...

    Ask just about any Harley rider about that.

    You might need to check out the needle and seat in the carb. Might just have a little crud not allowing it to fully seat. That's when the rubber mallet fixes it.

    Early CJ5 windshields are carry overs from the M38A1. They were split windshields, but a single frame. I'm not sure of the break down, and cut offs, but some were a single piece pop out, (ventilated windshield/ or bottom vent pop out). The one that I worked on was a '52, and it was a divided, fixed windshield.

    I bright flashlight and a flexible funnel, and you can fill the master cylinder from the engine compartment. The access cover can help you get the plug off, but to see how much you are putting in vs. how much is overfilling is a guess. Plus it isn't fun trying to get your head back out from under the steering column and wheel.

    Sounds like your camber is off on your front end. That typically is a good culprit for tough steering.
