Sam creates E-Brake Basic Training

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

No one can say that Sam and his wife Alecia don’t have a sense of humor.  This tutorial had me laughing for a while today!

From Flatfender Willys Academy comes Sam’s explanation of the center emergency brake mod. …. Take it away Sam …

E-BRAKE BASIC TRAINING

2. This is a 78 Merc Capri E brake. There are 3 bolts that hold it in place. The wires are for a dash warning light. The hole to cut is just larger then the width of the fulcrum and slightly longer than the fulcrum travel.

3. The part in the image below goes under the floor and the cables from the rear loop through this cable guide. If the cable is too long, cut to length and use your cable locks.  The best location for the brake is close to the seat.

4. This is the housing which is screwed down with screws.  Use the housing to determine the location of E-brake.

5. Double check for clearance and reach by working lever up and down. If it feels good, install!

6. This E-brake is from a Hyundai. Most Japanese cars will work, but Ford is the easiest way to go.

7. This is also from a Hyundai, but boot needs to be modified. So you get busy with that E-brake while I give that maggot who shrunk my jeep a major malfunction….FALL OUT!

More Information:

It usually takes about a hour to install with 3 bolts, nuts, washers, and two cable clamps. Once you get the brake installed in the vehicle where you can grab it comfortably, hooking up the cable underneath is a no-brainer, no matter what year it is. I have also used this unit on drum type brakes.

In the image below, I’ve installed a brake in a CJ-3B with a CJ-5 Chassis.  The installation is slightly different from that of the CJ2 etc. Total cost of the E-brake and cover at Pick-in-Pull for this project was $5.00. Cost of the clamps (2) and 3 bolts was $3.25 for a total of $8.25.

Comment by Dave …. This is the only other floor mounted emergency brake that I’ve seen.  Unfortunately, the pic isn’t that good.  But, you pull back on the stick to set it and push the button at the top to release it. You can see the rest of the pics related to this jeep here.

Is this possibly a GP or MA Body? California City, Ca **SOLD**

UPDATE:  This appears SOLD, but was listed at $800.

I could be wrong, but the slopes and cut of the passenger and driver’s sides look very similar to a Willys MA, thought maybe a Ford GP as well?.  This has been hacked up a bit, but it’s worth a look.  Check out what appears to be an emergency brake as well.

2 1946 CJ-2As Butte, MT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1600

“I have two (2) Jeep CJ 2A’s for sale. Here’s the story: I saved one (no title) from the shredder that had a complete chassis but the body had been ruined beyond repair, so I cut it off. I got that chassis running until I could find a body for it – which I found in the form of a complete Jeep that had the motor out and was missing the transmission. I thus dropped the running motor/tranny/transfer case from the chassis into the more complete Jeep.

So what you get is a 1946 CJ-2A (Montana titled) that runs and I have driven around the block, but no further. Why? Basically because I have done nothing to the brakes and don’t have a radiator (but I know a man who has). The Jeep just has a crude hotwiring system to make the motor run. You will have to attend to the brakes, lights, gauges (missing), greasing stuff up, etc. I can demonstrate that the motor is good and that the Jeep runs and drives and that 4wd works, but it will of course require some more work to make it ready to use for fun. It is missing its tailgate, but there is a bent one that you get that is green and could be straightened out to work. I am trying to get the house/garage where the Jeeps are rented and need to sell them.

On the plus side, the orange Jeep has a nice solid body, complete windshield, gas tank, decent paint (orange), tow bar (1 7/8 in ball) and is generally very clean.

You also will get:

– a complete metal half-cab with doors
– an extra motor and exhaust system
– an extra transfer case and complete clutch
– two sets of wheels, one with good newer radial tires and one with older bias ply’s
– an extra chassis with axels
– extra grill/bent but usable hood and tailgate/bent but repairable gas tank/brake hardware/misc

This shouldn’t be a difficult project, and for example with the brakes, between the two Jeeps you should be able to make up one good set of every part (shoes/drums/etc). If you wanted to sell the extra parts off or make a second complete Jeep you could essentially get one for almost free.”

Bruce Finds Some More Las Brisas Surreys

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Features, International • TAGS: .

Bruce forwarded me these unusual and rare posts cards of some unusual Surreys (here’s a compilation of Surrey & DJ info). Bruce has attempted to contact the Las Brisas Manager to learn if they have a historian of sorts for their jeeps in use, but he hasn’t had any luck. If anyone has any Las Brisas connections, please let me know!  Thanks for sharing Bruce.

Check out the guy driving the jeep, a stick no less, carrying a tray of food!

Brian writes, “These 2 jeeps offer clues but also leaves one with more questions. The extended tub, tailgate, baby moon hubcaps, valance panels, and an absence of chrome bumpers.  Also, there was no date stamp on the card, but it looks to be from the late/early 50-60s.

On the back of the postcard, written in both English and Spanish, it reads Room service by jeeps- unique at hotel Las Brisas in Acapulco where every room a has it’s own pool.”

1969 DJ-6 (2WD) Sedalia, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, DJ-5 & DJ-6

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay. It’s a rare DJ-6.

The DJ-6 model was built from 1965 to 1973 according to some sources and 1965 to 1968 according to others.  The most expensive DJ-6 was $1,818 according to All-Par.

“Up for auction is this nice old Willys DJ6 Jeep.  I bought this from a collector in KC MO and he had it for over 25 years stored in his building. I understand that this is a hard Willys model to find. It was bought new by Merrit Dairy and used to sell Ice Cream out of.  The Delight Company bought it and made it into the Ice Cream Jeep by adding the top which unbolts and makes it into a normal DJ6, their brass tag is rivited to the firewall as seen in pictures .  The body is nearly rust free as it was never used in winter months.  The floor panels and fender wells are in very good condition.  There are some dings in the fenders and dents here and there but are very solid.  The engine is the 4 banger and has a 3 speed manual tranny.  I believe these are orignial miles as it runs and operates very smooth.  No blow-by on engine.  This will make a great restoration project as the basics are very complete and solid.”

Aluminum Flattie on Bronco Chassis Prescott, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Jeep Rods, Unusual • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8500.

Here’s an aluminum flattie body on a modified Ford Bronco chassis.  As I mentioned in a post last week, the vented hoods are very rare.  I’m not sure if that’s aluminum or steel.

“Unique aluminum bodied CJ2 Jeep. This is a professionally built for off road, but very streetable CJ2. It is a real eye catcher. It features a highly modified 1974 Bronco chassis with 4 wheel disc brakes, dual master cylinders, urethane bushings, power steering, trans. cooler, power steering cooler, etc. It sits on, like new, 35X10X15 Goodyears. Power is supplied by a fresh 351w ford with edelbroch manifold and newly rebulit edelbrock 4 barrel, connected to a modified c-4 trans.and headers. It is an older construction, but is done right! I prefer cash, but will consider a trade for a nice cj or wrangler or ? and cash. ”
