Reader Question: The size of CJ-2A blocks

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

A reader asked about the original size of CJ-2A hood blocks.  A quick search revealed this was a forum topic on the CJ-2A PagePlease visit the forum to learn more.  I tried to create a quick link to the picture in the forum, but the forum won’t let me, so here’s a copy of the drawing submitted and a great pic of a 1945 CJ-2A which shows the blocks really well.  There’s also a CAD drawing that you can find in the forum as well that should help with the blocks.

The photo was posted to the CJ-2A page forum by the forum moderator Sean and the drawing was done by Joe DeYoung.


And here’s the pic and caption of the ’45 willys submitted to the CJ-2A forum by the forum moderator Sean  [This is a 1945 photo of a new 1945 CJ2A (photo courtesy Bill Oakes)]:

    It’s important to note that the hood blocks are not equidistant from the hood center seam. This was done to provide clearance for vaccuum wiper assembly.

    I realized this after a face to face with Carl Walck when I purchased the repro body kit. I confirmed this when I transferred the measurements off of vintage hood from my ’48
