The PNW4WDA Summer Convention Starts Friday 8/08

• CATEGORIES: News

Tomorrow, the 2008 PNW4WDA summer convention starts.  This 3 day annual event used to be enormous, attracting clubs and hundreds of jeeps from all over the Pacific Northwest and Canada.  Now, it's a much more intimate event, but still fun.  

Obviously, I didn't get my jeep done in time for Summer Convention this year, but it will be ready next year for some jeeping and some racing!

My Build – Fans

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

I went shopping at the junkyard today.  After a couple hours I came back with a steel fan and a flex fan (I couldn’t decided between them), a transmission cooler, some brake lines, and some other parts.  Yes, I had fun as usual and was only out $15.

I tried mounting the steel fan, but the bolt holes weren’t quite right.  I tried the flex fan and that will work, but I am worried about the integrity of it.  So, I decided to get online and learn more about fans.  One bit of info I ran across concerned horsepower vs. different types of fans.  Here’s the info from the site.

“Was reading the May 2000 ‘Car Craft’ and I came across something very interesting. They did a dyno test on a 496 horsepower chubby, {yes, I know — but we can still get some useful info on this…} and they tested different cooling fans to see what kind of drag each different type has.

Alternator, no fan: 496 hp
Black Magic electric fan:494 hp
Thermal clutch fan: 487 hp
Nonthermal clutch fan: 485 hp
Heavy duty thermal clutch fan: 476 hp
High performance flex fan: 476 hp
Stock four blade fan: 473 hp
Low profile flex fan: 466 hp
One piece plastic flex fan: 460 hp
OE replacement six blade rigid fan: 449 hp

They found the alternator alone, a 63 amp unit, only sucked 1 horsepower.”

“Up for sale is this 1945 Willys jeep. It has been rebodied with a fiberglass body kit. It appears that the previous owner restored this vehicle years ago and hardly used it.

Blueprints for Willys

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features, Website

Here's an interesting site I found. Blueprints.com  claims to have over 24,000 automobile blueprints online (though they appear more like a single drawing rather than full blueprints), including a variety of jeeps.  To the right is a jeep labeled CJ-4.  The site manager states:

"I do not claim to have made, scanned or drawn all of the blueprints on this website. I did on the other collect, edit and host all of them, free of charge, in my spare time.

My Build – Fender Update

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Features

I made good progress over the weekend. As you can see, I was able to mount the fenders and take a few shots of the jeep with the fenders.  It will look good.

In order to fit the fenders, I had to make cutouts in the wheel wells for the headers.  But, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I wanted to fill around the headers.  So, I bought a little bit of stove pipe and used that as a form to wrap fiberglass around the headers.  

The last pic is the fenders with the new covers for the headers.  To match the rest of the underside of the body, I'm going to paint herculiner on the wheelwell of the fenders (which saves a bunch of finish work) and fill in the gaps and paint the top and inside of the headers.

Here are some pics below.

A reader named David has shared an old picture of his parents racing around the sand dunes in what looks to be a CJ-2A.  This picture is a good reminder that you don't need a fancy jeep to go out and enjoy a day in the sand.  David will be sending a few more pictures along with some background text soon.  Thanks David!

1953 CJ-3B Kimberly, Idaho eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

This CJ-3B has about 23,000 miles on it.  The body looks in good shape, though the new paint job could possibly be hiding dings and rust. The rims are interesting — I'm not sure if those are newer or old rims.  Kimberly is 2 hours southeast of Boise.

"This is willy. a 1953 Willys CJ 3B 4cyl Jeep 4×4 in nice condition. This is a very fun Jeep to drive in the summer! It has been recently re-painted in a blue to purple coat/clear coat. New Bikini top & doors, new (USED) seats. All new Diamond plate was installed.  A very solid Jeep overall. Runs great with no mechanical issues. Has a very nice set of tires wrapped around a new set of rims. The tires have lots of tread life left. Pardon the mud! See the pictures!"
