Bought a nice 71 CJ5 yesterday, coming from Toyotas so my Jeep knowledge is lacking.

First question: On the dash just above the emergency flasher there is a small whiteish pull out knob. What is it for?

A pic would help a whole lot. Jeeps of that vintage have usually been modified so it might not be stock.

Good points. It looks stock, but who knows. I'll work on a picture, haven't looked into how best to post pictures since photobucket dicked the world.

Yeah no kidding, might be the blender. Look forward to photos.
Oh man if only. Although I'm not sure where you would put a blender on this thing, it's almost toy like in size.

A bit of back story, the previous owner put a electric fan on the Jeep to help cool the small block Chevy he also put in. Fan is not working but came on twice yesterday when I pulled the white knob in question out. Have not been able to recreate this, but I just want to make sure I am not missing something obvious before I start really digging into it.

Looks like a choke pull out.

Look under the dash and see if it has a spiral casing coming out and check the carb to see if there is a choke cable attached to it.
