Industrial L-134 Phoenix, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500.

This is a former industrial engine. It has a later model oil bracket.

and 1948…. 12 Volt coil and condenser, has good water pump, Carter YS

Great for any Willy’s/Jeep application with a L-134 four cylinder.”

Chevy II 153 Asheville, NC $500


No pics, but this sounds like a good price if you want an upgrade over your existing engine. I’d put this in Biscuit if it weren’t so far away.


“Chevy II 153 4 cylinder from 1962/63(?). The motor has been built as a high performance engine…has a 4 bbl intake, dual point distributor, header and (I think) the big valve head. Runs great and had it in an old Jeepster but replaced it with a V6. Seem to be hard to find as a lot were scooped up and built for dirt track racing. Ran fine in the Jeepster with good oil pressure and no over heating (has new water pump).”

Day 10 Aug 11: North Atlantic Cowboy

• CATEGORIES: Engine, Features • TAGS: .

<–  Day 9 Aug 10: Primitive Camping | Day 11 Aug 12: All Good Things Come to an End –>


Beach camping at Gander.

The crew spent the day doing some more exploring of Newfoundland. They began the morning on the beach at Gander Lake. It ended at Gros Morne National Park.


Another short driving day, with a wet drive from Gander to Gros Mourne National Park.

Gander Lake proved to be a beautiful place to begin the day.



While the beach is a romantic spot to camp, it’s not all that flat. So, Joe and Bill had to get creative with their equipment in order to have their beds passably level.
