Gerald’s Adventures with Snow Plowing

• CATEGORIES: News

Gerald recently sold his snow plow.  Through a few email exchanges, I learned snow plowing was always an adventure, but not always fun ….

Geralds writes, “Plowing was fun as long as it was just for me. The Jeep did a great job. One of the odder experiences occured when plowing long lanes and roads:  the jeep would go silent.  After spending some time wondering why this occurred, I finally figured out that so much water was coming into the engine compartment that the belt would just slip and then the motor would go quiet.  It seems that most of the noise from a stock Willys comes from the fan, especially in low range it is the steel blade that makes the most noise.

Seems like everyone would call and want me to plow their places out with “that Jeep” I had.  It was hairy out on the road with the plow.  The weight would come off the back wheels and the jeep wanted to turn around.  And the roads would always be bad since that is when the snow came.  I ended up putting about 300 pounds of sand bags in the bed.  Here is a pic of me plowing one day.

The biggest frustrations I had was that sometimes old ladies (and men) would bitch about how I pushed the snow and ask if I could move it over about 2 feet or so, or complain that I was digging up the grass at the edges of their yard and driveways; all this after almost killing myself getting to their place to make a couple bucks.  And I wasn’t the only ones who had a problem with the slick roads, as you can see from the picture I took below …

Also, it would be hard on the old girl;  when going to the neighbors or misc old folks who needed a plow, salt on the road became the enemy.  It isn’t even the plowing so much as the tons of salt that would find there ways into every nook and cranny on the jeep.  Since there was no chance to wash a jeep in freezing temperatures, the salt caused rust to invade the original body on my 3B.  So, when I rebuilt her I had to replace the body.

But, like the picture above shows, it was fun some times too.  My jeep was a plow jeep its whole life until the restoration in 2006.  No more work for it as my driveway is only about 300 feet; So, if I need to plow, I just get out in the snow with my 84 John Deere 318 (or my neighbors bobcat when things get really bad). (See more pics of Gerald’s 3B, before and after the rebuild)”

Museums: BRC-60 #7 at the Heinz History Center

• CATEGORIES: Museums

According to a report by Jim Allen in Offroad Adventures in 2005, there was a BRC-60 on loan to the Senator John Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.  This BRC-60 was donated to the Smithsonian back in 1944.  It is the only known survivor of the first 70 BRC-60s (preceded by the BRC and followed by the BRC-40s) built by Bantam.

Anyone know if it is still there?

Here are two images from Jim Allen’s article:

And from a Belgium Jeep site comes this shot of a BRC-60

And I’m not sure where I found this …

Year? CJ-3A Comanche, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

This might be a good parts jeep.  The windshield and frame look good.

“NO TITLE. 1949-51 Willys Jeep CJ-3A. Last registered in 1988. According to the guy I bought it from, it was being used for pulling a brush hog (mowing) until recently and the last registered owner was in the West Texas (Abilene) area. Jeep is intact with good windshield, headlight bezels, grill, hood and other parts. Also, engine is dis-assembled but appears to be complete. It is a flathead 4 cyl. As you can see, all tires are on the vehicle and hold air; spare is also mounted on the side and appears that it is new, although weathered. Plenty of good parts available; transmission and transfer case; engine; front and rear axles; tow bar and rear step with trailer hitch, and a PTO. According to my internet research, this was specifically built as a farm use vehicle, hence the PTO and what appears to be a belt drive. I bought this from a friend who became disabled and needed the money, but I have too many other projects to take on this one at this time. Questions? e-mail me.

Sam Installs a Rack & Pinion Prototype

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Sam, from Flatfender Willys in Colorado, mentioned a few months ago that he figured out how to easily install an off-the-shelf Rack & Pinion into a flattie.  He’s installed over 10 of these over that past few years in various rigs with great success.

A number of readers asked for more information.  However, Sam chose to delay the information so that he could work with the maker of the R&Ps to develop a Rack designed especially for Jeeps — from old flatties through Wranglers.

What you will see below is the protoype built by the company that Sam has installed into Craig’s CJ-3B.  These are early pictures of the process.  Once Sam finishes testing this prototype, they’ll be available for sale.

1. This first image shows the Rack tucked neatly under the cross member.

2. Here is an underside look at the setup.

3. Here’s a look at the 7/8″ tubing (I think I have that right).  The basic Rack was originally designed for a 4000lb truck and then was modified for the Jeep to insure it was strong enough to handle a variety of situations.

4.  For the typical installation, you’d leave the stock shock mount (if you have a mount there), and cut the plate flush with the frame.  Otherwise, you can just bolt the plate into position.  In this case, Sam had made a change to the suspension and moved the mount down.

5. This image shows that the Rack has an even lower profile than the stock system.  Note how far lower the stock system extends.

6. This image shows the 1/2″ plate to which the Rack mounts.  shows the Rack doesn’t extend far outside the frame.

A WWII Courier Willys

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, War Images

I don’t know anything about this particular jeep except that it is called the “Dixie Flyer”.  It seems to be a modified MB with a ‘Courier’ sign in the front and some modifications to the fenders.  It also appears to have a gas tank on the passenger side (I think that is what is sticking down under the passenger?).  I found this image on the European Center of Military History’s Blog.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

(07/15/2010) It sounds like a simple rewire of the alternator and 10 minutes of bleed of the brakes ought to result in a pretty nice jeep.
