The “K” Style Flanges from The Jeep King

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

I purchased a 1957 Berg’s Truck and Parts Co (Aka the King of Jeeps) Catalog off of eBay. It included this flyer for a set of hubs I’ve never seen. Anyone ever run across these? (You can compare them to other flanges/summer hubs here: http://www.ewillys.com/2017/01/09/warns-summer-hubs/)

The Backyard Project

• CATEGORIES: Features

I ran out of time for updates yesterday (other than the K hub above).

As I mentioned last week, we’ve been busy redoing my mother-in-law’s back yard pond area. It’s meant moving and rewiring the garden outlets, replacing water pipes and irrigation hose, ripping up old landscaping, and laying 2 tons of stone for a walk way. I spent most of yesterday laying the stone (see pics below).

On another note. Ann was walking towards the entrance of Lowest yesterday wearing her “Bomb Squad” shirt, one she got from Joe in Mesa (she loves the shirt). In the Airforce, among other things, she both armed and defused bombs. That was part of her profession, so she wears her Bomb Squad shirt proudly.

Anyway, as she’s walking into Lowes, some guy in a truck drives near her as she neared the front entrance of the store and calls out to her. She didn’t understand him, so she asked him what he said. He replied that “it was nice of your boyfriend to let you wear his shirt.”

Shit, meet fan ….

Let’s just say that it didn’t go well for that guy. Ann explained that she did not need to justify her service to the man in the truck, but she did anyway, telling him that it was her, not her husband, who was the bomb expert, that it was her profession. And, if a bomb ever needed to be defused, that she ought to be the one doing it and not her husband (I concur).

The lesson here is don’t be like that guy. There are over 200,000 of active-duty women in the military doing all kinds of work. Show’m respect.

Here are some pics of the backyard project …

this is the pond pump and plumping. The pipes needed some new sections. The wiring for the pump was never attached to a post, so I moved the wiring, sunk a post, and added a craftsman style box and cover.

IMG_8657

This is another electrical outlet that needed a post and the craftsman box around it. I’ve added some anti-critter filler at the bottom to keep them at bay (hopefully).

Finally ready for stone.

Let the laying of stone begin.

Willys Jeep on Farm as Tractor & Plow Video

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

I saw this video for the first time yesterday. Near the end of it there are several jeeps featured doing non-farm chores. I’ve taken a few screen shots of them and added them below. The most interesting one to me is the red one with the extended rear (pic with guys carrying the washing machine).

We’ve run across these extended rears like this on a few jeeps over the years, but this is the earliest evidence of them that I have seen. The one on the back of the red jeep looks like to me like it was professionally made, leading me to wonder if it was a purchasable product.

1947 CJ-2A Engine Whitesburg, KY $200

• CATEGORIES: Parts

This might be a good price.

https://eastky.craigslist.org/pts/d/1947-willys-jeep/6703198915.html

“I believe this to be a 1947 CJ2A but not sure on the year. I bought it for parts the body and frame were rusted beyond repair. The engine ran like a sewing machine I only needed the trans so I put oil in the cylinders and put it under my building and covered it. But after sitting in there for over 20 years it is stuck. I believe if someone wanted it for the external parts it is well worth my asking price. I have lots of other parts for these Willys jeeps. I also have a building full of vintage auto parts ,mostly Chevy some Ford etc. I would make someone a good deal on a bunch of parts. I need to tear down the building everything needs gone. Located 3 miles southwest of Whitesburg,KY.”

“1946 willys jeep cj2a.
Body is patched and welded and looks 70 years old but its completely solid. Most of the body parts are heavier guage metal than stock and nothing is weak or rusted.

Engine is an l134 4 cylinder. Runs well.

Transmission and transfer case were rebuilt. New clutch. All work well.

Both axles were redone and work well with no leaks.

Radiator is new.

Brake system cylinders and lines are all brand new and work well.

The steering drives straight and tires are new period correct.

The jeep does everything it did in 1946 and about as well or better.

Its got a clean nj title. Runs and drives well and has been on the road most of this summer.

It needs lights wired in and temp guage and fuel guage wired in. New wiring harness is about 300 to 350. I dont drive it at night so havent gotten around to that yet.

Lots of spare parts come with it.
Im pretty firm on price.”
