I know it's been a while........... and I have some sad storys, but it runs. we got a puppy, so that taken a lot of my time, and my work has gotten busyer.
the short list,
rebleed the brakes and plum in the brake switch. wire up the generator, and test.. start the rest of the wireing. just ordered shocks. that wraps up the bottom side... then find what's bad a replace all the electrical stuff...
Glad to hear you have the Willys running. I hope to be able to say that some day. My 3B lost the head gasket in Montana, it’s still not back together. I understand life getting in the way. Keep us posted👍
i droped off the 3b july 11th, he got to it the next Friday. he put in a used good oil pump, and his gauge. added gas, and she ran ! the tank leaked were the paint was on the threads to the hose. threads cleaned up, leak was gone. had a small miss above idle. a week later, his guy adjusted the valves, still poped above idle. he wanted to pull the head. I said no. compression test was from #1 goin to #4 125, 110 ,115, 125.. I said did you check the electrical, he said yes. so he worked on it, and had 3-5 hours into it. spark plug wire 2 and 3 we swapped. that was me. diapgram on the accelerator pump ripped, so that was replaced as well.. I grounded out my dist. so he put in a used one as well..
cranks right over, and purrs.
clutch and rear leak need fixed yet, that story another day
The yellow pile runs again, I think the 134 boat anchor will be good for another season in the mountains 🏔. Now just have to torque the head once again and put the rest back together. Still thinking about an aluminum radiator and electric fan.👍
been to busy again... the clutch I got local came with a a 9.5" pressure plate, and a used 8.5" solved my issue. as for the tranny/ t case leak...... that I messed up royally at the end of the shift rods for the dana 18 there is a metal block. I had mine in upside down, and cracked t-case. hence the leak. so I have to get a used t-case. clutch and leak was 1,376$ I 'm 3k into. so i'm broke for a bit. I did make it to the willys masion dixion show !!! that's my b @ 5:44 into the video . it's been ten years scene I was there last and had to rool it off the trailer, and push it on.. the feeling to drive it across the grass was a great one

schimms15: Popped the hood on the crawler to check anti freeze. Glad I did. Was only good to 10F. Drained radiator. Refilled with -45F. Ran 30 minutes. Parked it for the season.
