Wanted: Full Floater Parts or an Axle

• CATEGORIES: wanted

Greg wants to add full floater hubs to his rig, but needs a couple items.

He writes, “Looking for a floater kit or pieces to make my rear D44 CJ axle a floater for flat towing. I’m using Dualmatic locking hubs up front, and have two additional spare sets I’ll use to build the back hubs. Primarily just need the axles if anyone may have a spare set. Or perhaps someone has a long one I can cut down, and respline for the long side, then I’ll use my long side to cut for the short one.”

Wanted: Holley 1904 for a F-Head

• CATEGORIES: wanted

Anyone have the right 1904 Holley (or 1909?) for the f-head installation into a flattie?  I’m trying to help a reader find one.

If I understand correctly, these are the correct carb numbers: R-2003A und R-2003-1A (Ford p / n of CODE-9510B or CODE-9510D)

Here are some links with information about the Holley carb / f-head / flattie install

Norb’s unusual Grille on his ’53 Wagon

• CATEGORIES: Features, wanted

Norb purchased this basketcase and is working to transform it into a custom wagon.  However, he is puzzled about the grille.

Norb writes, “I own a 1953 wagon that was a plow truck out in Wyoming for most of it’s life. It came to me with a Ford Y-block motor. The frame and suspension were shot, but the body is pretty good. I chopped the top and put it on a shortened Dodge Dakota chassis with a 318 V8 and 5spd. trans. Should make a nice little hotrod.  I know it was a “Jeep salad” when I got it. It had been hit in the front and repaired many years ago. I cannot ID the grill though. The side aprons have parking lights on them. The air intake hole in mine looks factory, but they are usually below the parking lights.”

I asked Dan for his input.  He wrote, “It looks like someone added a heater inlet hole to an early wagon grill (which were solid and didn’t have a hole) and then added extra marker lights also in a different position than factory. The heater inlet hole looks both larger and higher than what the factory added to the later wagons. I’m not sure when the factory added the heater inlet hole, but my beat guess is late 1950s.”

So, has anyone seen a factory wagon grille with the intake hole where Norb’s is?

For comparison, here is an image search for 1953 Wagon grilles

Flattie Wanted: Trade for Snowmobile & Trailer? Central Ma

Mike wrote to me yesterday.  He’s looking to trade for a jeep.

Mike writes, “I discovered your website about a month ago while looking for a willys to fix up.

Hesse Hornet Info Wanted

• CATEGORIES: Features, Industrial-Welder-Generator, wanted

The Hesse Hornet was an air compressor manufactured by the Hess Manufacturing Company in the late 1940s(?).  The compressor used a CJ-2A engine to run, but only pistons 1 & 4.  The middle two pistons were used to compress air.  Keith recently bought one of these and was going to part it out, but changed his mind and now wants to restore it.  However, there isn’t much online about it.  Below are the links we know about it so far.  If you know of any additional info, please add it to the comments.
