Builds: Tom’s CJ-3Bs

• CATEGORIES: Builds

For the Beaufort, North Carolina, Fourth of July Parade, Tom decided to get out his green 1954 CJ-3B and join in the fun.  Also pictured is Tom’s tan 1961 CJ-3B.  Those are some great looking jeeps.  Tom’s got two more CJ-3Bs, but not enough hands to drive all of them at once!  Thanks for sharing!

1951_cj3a_phillipsburgUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1900.

It looks like the top is melting.

1946 CJ-2A Avondale, Az $7000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_avondaleI’m wondering if auto appraisers make their money as a percentage of an appraisal, because every appraisal I’ve seen has been way off of the market value. The one thing I really like about this jeep is the cool old top and doors; it looks in good condition. I’m not sure what a “one piece roll cage” is exactly; maybe it is made from one tube? This jeep has some good upgrades.

“For Sale, 1946 Willys Jeep, Custom built from the ground up. Full one piece roll cage, Warn overdrive (you can split every gear, including reverse). Buick V6, 4 core radiator, power brakes, power steering, tilt / telescoping steering wheel, HEI ignition, manual / electronic fuel pump.  This has been in my family for almost 40 years, and was normally ONLY driven to hunt or to get ice cream.”

1953 CJ-3B Magadore, Oh $1150

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1953_cj3b_mogadoreUPDATE:  A reader named Bob filed the following report: It was pretty beat but did run. Had an arctic hardtop on it and a few  rare things like the manual wiper and the rain gutter frame was ok … springs were broken. If it could be had for $700 of so it would be an ok deal. Thanks Bob!

“1953 Willys Jeep. I am not sure of the model, I have been told it is a CJ3B but there also is a tag on the firewall that says M-38. The jeep runs and drives and seems to be all original but the 4cyl engine knocks and the brakes don’t work. The transmission and transfer case seem to work great. The jeep also has an aluminum hardtop and has a West Virginia title. I am looking for $1150 OBO Call Mike (330) 607-3780 or Email gmck30@aol.com Thanks”

My Build – Replacing the Power Steering Pump

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

stu_olsonIt turns out my power steering pump had some bad bearings, as it squealed pretty good.  I called the local Schucks and the cost for a replacement was about $80.  So, I called the local junkyard and went shopping there.  After searching through four different rows, I found a pump from a ’90 Chevy Caprice that would work just fine.  The cost was only $25 and it came with a guarantee that it works.  For another $10 I also found a chrome extra deep TH350 pan which I had been thinking about getting..

Returning to the power steering pump, I had to figure out how to remove the pulley from the old pump and put it on the new pump.  So, I got online and found a great article from Stu Olson’s Jeep Site that described exactly what was needed.  To save you time, I have boiled it down to four basic steps:

  1. Go to your local Schucks or Autozone and ‘borrow’ a pulley remover and installer kit
  2. Remove the pulley with the puller
  3. Install the pulley with the installer
  4. Return the pulley to the store

Of course, being stubborn, I tried a variety of my other pullers, but couldn’t get that damn pulley to budge.  That’s when I finally went to set 1 above.

M-38 Pilot models from the CJ-3A info site

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-38 • TAGS: .

Bob Westerman has written a detailed overview of the M-38 pilot models.

From the website, Bob writes:  “NEW: 1/1/2009 In the time since this web-page was published some new photos of the Pilot Models have surfaced. The photos reveal that the pilot models were in a constant state of change as different features were implemented and tested. The new information shows that some previous assumptions are no longer valid. See the MVPA’s magazine Army Motors #126 for the latest information.

Visit the CJ-3A.Info website to learn more about the M-38 Pilot model history.

Motor is frozen from weather. All is inside except the tub which is not in good shape but can restored by someone with time and know how. I gave up on the project because it is to big for me and I just bought another jeep. Asking $700.00. Jason- 360-278-3470.”
