L-134 Factory Heat Shield

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE II: There’s a reference to the shield in a 1943 Tech manual (pg 23). Still no part number.

power-unit-pe-183-a-heat-shield-diagram-lores

UPDATE: Another heat shield on an industrial WWII L-134 spotted today (at bottom).

Barney Goodwin from Barney’s Jeep Parts shared a pic of this rare heat shield (he has several in his parts inventory). It mounts between the carb and the intake manifold. We’ve been trying to document a part number, pics, or other evidence of its use. The only evidence so far are two industrial engines with heat shields.

Here’s the heat shield Barney has in stock. Anyone have a part number for this?

l-134-heat-shield-barney-goodwin-parts

As sometimes happens, when I know what to look for, things sometimes pop up. In this case, after writing this post, I ran across a WWII Industrial engine for sale in Santa Cruz that has a heat shield installed. It’s hard to tell how far the wing sticks out.

heat-shield-industrial-engine-wwii

When searching the industrial equipment archives, an image from 2015 of a civilian industrial engine with a heat shield with a heat shield popped up. The wing is more easily seen. Whether this heat shield is the same as Barney’s or not I couldn’t say for sure:

This Navy unit is powered by a L-134 with a heat shield:

1954? CJ-3B Brochures on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I believe these two CJ-3B brochures were put out in 1954. I *think* the red one was published initially and then the yellow one, without the KW and some minor changes, was put out as a revised brochure.

This four-page brochure is interesting in that it includes a reference to KW on the front page (Unfortunately, it’s priced at $26). I’d guess that means it was produced in 1954. I have some similar wagon brochures that don’t have the KW stamp from 1954, dated based on the brochure’s claim the the wagons were now available with the ‘new’ Super Hurricane engine. That engine first appeared in the 1954 model.

“Mostly original – 4cyl hurricane engine, 3 spd transmission, front lock/unlock hubs, 6V, minimal rust. HARD TOP with glass in-tact. Matching spare wheel. Engine bay reasonably clean, engine and drive train needs solid cleaning. Runs well and starts every time.

I bought this as project sight unseen. Was going to resto-mod it but I can’t bring myself to hack into and part out something this original. It is truly great condition considering its age. Last owner put $1500+ into normal repairs back in May of 2019. I had it shipped out here and have slowly been poking around at it but have not started doing anything major.

Details: Gauges not working, 6 volt (although new battery), wiring has had a few things added but it is mostly original. Tires hold air but are not road-worthy. 26485 on the ODO but it isn’t working. This is a perfect Willys for someone looking for a super vintage restoration.

Currently clean titled in Colorado. Pink slip in hand. Asking $9000 OBO. Also interested in trades for other Willys / Jeep / etc. If you are at all interested please send me an email. I have a few Jeep projects underway so I’m looking to make a deal!”

“I am selling my 1948 Willys CJ2A. I bought it a couple years ago as a fun toy. It was beautifully restored by the previous owner. It is definitely a great little vehicle and it gets lots of looks, thumbs up and honks (the good kind). I truly just don’t have time to drive it and can use the extra space. It’s time to move it along to someone that will actually have time to enjoy it. Everything is mechanically sound. It starts up right away and runs better than most of my other classic cars. Truly a great car to just get in and drive. I typically ran most of my local errands in it because it’s fun to tool around in and a cake walk to park. Please let me know if you have any questions, I’m definitely not an expert on these but I will help in any way I can. I’m also happy to send any specific pictures you might want. Thanks for looking!

Just paid the registration, good through October 2020

“Up for sale is my 1946 Willys driver, I bought it about 6 months ago as a fun toy and it was a blast to own. It was previously restored in 2006 to make this a bulletproof driver. It’s not perfect by any means, but the patina is PERFECT. It is very reliable, gets all the looks, compliments and conversations. Unfortunately the time has come to part ways with her. I just don’t get to drive it as often as I thought I would.

With the chevy 4.3l it starts right up, every time, and has plenty modern day power and torque to enjoy the driving experience. Message me for running driving videos of the truck I can send you. Truck is mechanically sound and doesn’t need anything. I have the rear seats as well if anyone is interested in adding that into the truck. Has a 3in body lift and oversize tires. Please let me know if you have any questions. Can try to answer to the best of my knowledge and supply any additional photos you might need.

Title is in hand, and registration is non-op. Just need to transfer and pay registration.”

5 Folded Brochures of Different Models on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: There are more of these five-brochure sets on eBay. View all the info on eBay. These are five out of the 20 issued (Form 600-01 through 600-20) during 1960. Slightly different, but similar brochures were published in 1959 (Form 59-01 through 59-20). The form number can be found at the bottom of the brochures. I’m working on assembling an entire list for each year. 

(02/09/2017) I bought and received a set of these. By the time you factor in the exchange rate, this is a good price.

“These are five small format (22 x 9 cms) six page two colour sales brochure folders for the 1960 Jeep range for the US market.
Produced by Willys Motors Inc in Toledo Ohio, in English and undated, but they are around 1960
All open out to about A4 size with good pics and specifications.

Anyone have this brochure?

I don’t have it; but do have these old pics from a 2013 post. The problem is I can’t quite tell what the date (aka form number) is from 1959 or 1960. If you have this brochure, the date would be great. Scans would even be better, but I know that’s not simple for everyone.

I’m also interested in other 1958-1962 brochures. These all have date related-form numbers. I have a bunch, but not all of them. At some point this month I will create a list of what I have and what I need to more fully document the brochures from this era.
