1960_cj3b_menomineeThis CJ-3B has some unusual upgrades.  I haven’t seen a roll cage quite like this one; and, I’m not sure about having the tubing, unpadded, right behind the driver and passenger.  It’s worth a review.

The Evolution of Water Fording

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Features, Old Images • TAGS: , .

One of the more interesting early modifications for water fording is visible  in the picture below.  Note how the jeep facing the reader has the exhaust vented out the front of the grill with the muffler laying parrallel to the grille.  I can’t say I’d ever seen that before.

The CJ-3A.info page notes: “The recommended maximum fording depth of an unmodified jeep was 21 inches. That is about the height of the fuel pump and transfer case vents. Any deeper and things would start to fill up with water. Even at this relatively shallow depth the Technical Manual (2) advised that the generator brace should be “pulled up to release tension on the fan belt and stop the fan from throwing water over the engine”. That would be important in order to keep water off the ignition system. During a combat landing the 21″ maximum fording depth was not adequate.”

When readers comment on a post, I always get a copy of the comment emailed to me.  I had thought that readers who post a comment also received an email anytime there is a followup comment to a post.

Well, it turns out I was wrong about this feature (thanks to Robert for making me aware of the issue). So, I did some research and found a plugin for wordpress that solves the problem.

Now, if you post a comment related to a post, you’ll be sent an email anytime someone posts a follow up comment.  This should help mightly with cross reader communication on posts.

1947 CJ-2A Avondale, Az $2700

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_avondaleThis jeep has some great drive train upgrades.  With the seller willing to negotiate, this might become a pretty good deal for someone.

“I have a ’47-ish Willys jeep for sale. It has a Buick 225, SM420(I think), Dana 300, Dana 30 front, Dana 44 rear. The Willys needs a little work; the headlights need to be installed and wired and the cooling system needs help. The wiring is very simple, a few butt connectors and everything will light right up. I think the radiator needs to be flushed to clear a few blocked tubes, nothing major. The battery will need to be charged, but the Willys starts and runs just fine; ‘tiI it gets too hot. I have a clear AZ title that is ready to be notarized and turned over to the buyer. Because it is a 1947 vehicle no emissions are required. With a little work this Willys will be a great little machine. Let me know if you’re interested. $2700 OBO. I’m willing to negotiate a reasonable price, please reply with your phone number. Thanks, JN Crowe.”
