Thinking of buying a 75 CJ5 with a 304 3speed, the 1st gear was down to the left 2nd up to the right 3rd down to the right reverse was up to the left...is this the correct sequence for shifting? I was thinking 1st started up to the left.....the Jeep is in good shape has fiberglass tub, Shocks seemed relatively new etc. it all looked right however when driving it I could not keep it straight hitting the brakes it would swerve... any thoughts on how to correct the handling of it...again the Jeep looked nice and definitely wasn"t a POS but I probably would have to tow it if I bought it. didn"t feel like something I wanted to drive 40 miles on the freeway with
Thanks for any input!
