Hopefully I'm doing this right, I'm not really familiar with working with computers, and I guess these things called Web Sites, so here goes! My 17 yr old grandson and I are in the process of trying to resurrect a 46 Willys to be "road worthy", nothing fancy, mostly country dirt roads. We chose the Willys instead of an ATV or 4 Wheeler that so many people abuse in our neck of the Pennsylvania woods! Any help with information such as web sites to familiarize us with the CJ2A, diagrams etc, or actual members who would be willing to take a phone call once in awhile to help out with questions we may have! Very Sincerely Jack Marks
Well Jack, you can call me between 0700 and 1900 Eastern time seven days a week. 336.963.3605. Others here may volunteer to speak with you, but just go ahead and ask your questions here. If I don’t know the answer someone else here does. Barring that, you can check out the CJ2A Page G503 Those are a couple of good ones.

Well Scoutpilot, I thank you very kindly, and I'm sure I'll be taking you up on that offer in the future! I'd really like to find really good explosion drawings of the front and rear axle assemblies, all the ones I have seen are really hard to decipher some of the intricate parts when rebuilding from the axle flange out, recently I was pressure washing the backing plates and apparently blew off two paper gaskets that I didn't even know existed! by the way, if you're wondering about my trip to camp after Christmas, The Willys was buried in snow, and I'll have to wait for warmer weather to get to it, in the mean time I have all the backing plates here at home to rebuild !
Jack, Find yourself a copy of the Service Manual for Universal Jeep Vehicles. It's not perfect but it's very good. also, the Parts List for Jeep Models CJ-2A and 3A can be a lot of help. Walck's 4WD has them both, and I suppose Kaizer-Willys probably does too. And, as Scoutpilot said, you can get most questions answered here. B-dubya
Yep, I already got the Service Manual you suggested, but the explosion drawing doesn't really separate the parts enough for this first time Willys owner to see exactly what is what, especially in the area's of the wheel bearings, seals, gaskets, shims, and backing plates. Got Kaiser Willys Catalog also. I have been doing all my own mechanics since the late 50's including a stint on a couple of Drag race cars including a record holding D Gas Dragster (Chevy powered 292 Cu. In. Six Cylinder) in the late 60's and early 70's. Just like to know exactly what Im looking at when I need to confirm what parts go where. Thanks for the responses, I've already joined the web sites that Scoutpilot suggested! Tired of this snow and cold already, hate it when I can't be out in the driveway tinkering on some Horse Tiller, cub cadet, old chevy or now a Willys! After hunting season, winter sucks!

m38mike: Muley, we spent the day driving mud and exploring new ground for camping near South Park. We came to a reality that we may not have access to the mountain passes we'd like to drive in early July. Kinda trimmed back our scope of what to see.
