“his is a 1951 Jeep CJ3A. This was my father’s jeep that he partially restored. The jeep yard drives.

Engine runs well but smokes when warm. Possibly the oil control rings are stuck. My dad took the engine out and had it rebuilt but never fully reinstalled. The Jeep sat in the barn for about 10 years without running. Pictures of the engine bay were taken before I put back together with all new ignition components.

Electrics have been converted to a 12 volt system. (started is still 6v)

Fuel tank is currently of of the vehicle, I didn’t want to put gas in the tank and have it sit. Tank looks clean. Continue reading
