Overdrive Differences

• CATEGORIES: Features, OD Other, OD Saturn/Warn

Will shared pics that show some of the differences between a Warn overdrive with a Husky overdrive. Regarding finding Husky parts, my best guess for parts would be Herm Tilford.

Will writes, “A little while back there was a discussion on the different overdrive units. There where several different units produced and maybe others but the ones I’ve seen are Warn, Dualmatic, Saturn, Husky and ATV overdrives that all looked similar. Saturn is a direct decedent of the Warn as Advance Adapters purchased the tooling from Warn to make the Saturn. I don’t know much about the Dualmatic or ATV except ATV is still produced as is Saturn.

Anyway I had mentioned that the Husky had a different angle to the planetary gears, Sun gear and bowl gear than Warn. These pictures show how the Warn had much more tooth angle than Husky and as such these parts do not interchange and Husky parts are near impossible to find.”

In 1957-58 4 Italians Drove to Toledo the Long Way

• CATEGORIES: Features, International, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This was first posted in August of 2016.

This September 13, 1958, article from the Toledo Blade told the story of four italians who drove what appears to be a WWII jeep a distance of 80,000 miles from Italy to Toledo. The men, all newspapermen, planned to drive another 15,000 miles back to Italy. What a trip! I wonder if their counterparts in 2013 knew of their countrymen’s adventure?

This jeep had been at my grandfathers hunting cabin for as long as I can remember, sat for a long time but with fluid change and tuneup fired right up. I converted to 12 V and pointless distributor along with new carburetor and master cylinder. Comes with several extra new parts. No title it was lost long ago so best for trail rig farm use.

Have video of it running I can share, no smoking knocking etc. Water pump is getting a bit noisy but I have a brand new one that is included just needs to be installed.”

No Updates Today

• CATEGORIES: News

Ann and I spent yesterday moving more stuff from Mom’s place to our place. We have one more load to go, so we will be back there around the 12th. Mom’s place goes up for sale on April 15th and, most likely, will sell within a week. Hopefully, the sale of the property marks the ending of a transformative three years that began with Dad’s passing in 2019. Even without a pandemic this would have been a strange time for us, but add that and other external happenings and it’s been a crazy few years!

Speaking of changes, we have a couple contractors coming this morning to bid on a couple projects, so no updates today. There will be updates Wednesday.

Re-Grading the Little House Lawn

• CATEGORIES: Features

In another of the series of why-I-am-not-working-on-jeeps-right-now posts, the warm weather has allow me to get busy the last couple of days regrading the lawn next to the guest house. The previous owner had put a garden next to the shop. We wanted that to go, because it was in the shade most of the time and because it didn’t make sense for us in that location. In addition, there was a negative slop into the south side of the guest house. Finally, we want to add a walking path along the lawn side of the shop and install some new sprinklers (line were laid for this area, but, we have discovered, the growth of the lean-to-structure (at back) and the construction of the guest house a few years ago appear to have been built, in some cases, over the original lines. So, we are having to locate this sprinkler line as we go.

Here’s what it looked like when we bought the place:

little-house-south-lawn2
2804-s-wilgus-prosser-26 copy

All those issues led me to regrade the area this weekend. Pulling up the grass turned out to be the most difficult part. So, I used my fork-lift forks to stab, then lift the grass. The result was this jumbled mess.

2022-03-26-grading-little-house-lawn1

Eventually, I got all the area roughed out, with the sod and dirt piled in one big pile.

little-house-south-lawn-dug

With the roughing-out completed, today I will spend some time using a level to see what other work needs to be done, mark the future walk-way path, and layout some additional lines and sprinklers.

Now I just have to find a place for all that dirt!
