    In regards to removing paint from the axles, sheet metal, and steel. Harbor Freight sells nylon brushes that are used in a drill. The are $3.99 each, and on the average heep, I've used five to completely remove paint. The brushes are either 80 or 120 grit. The brushes do not heat the metal, and do not remove any metal. The metal surface just needs to be wiped with solvent, and is ready for paint. No sand in crevasse, doesn't harden sheet metal by peening, and no sharp wire shrapnel impaling soft tissue. The brushes come in flat or cup brushes. They cut through multi layers of paint, rust, and bondo.

    think i just did a good thing. in Wilmington NC i found a surplus store and the old guy that started it is a WWII and Korea vet. he has a restored M38A1 that he rents out to movie people and we sort of hit it off and i got a complete transmission, transfer case and emergency brake for $250.00 us dollars, checked it out and looked inside and clear 90 wt and no steel shavings.. he is looking in his warehouse for other parts and pieces

    Look at how those vent lines are routed!

    Remember - pure blind luck overcomes planning and forethought

    doing that now. now here is one? Tie rod ends, seems that the front end tie rods are all frozen, as far as adjusting in and out, am working on freeing them up, have loosened the lock down bolt and that is now moving okay, and have widened the gaps that compress the end, Hopefully with patience and a BFH i will get the whole thing to move and then can clean up the threads and put some lube on there to be able to adjust. BUT WHAT CONSTITUTES A BAD TIE ROD END, ALL OF THEM SEEM TIGHT AND WILL MOVE (INSIDE THE SOCKET AND BALL). Can get them but if dont need to spend money would rather not. most of the rubber umbrella to keep grease inside are bad but feeding the ZIRCS would re introduce grease into the thing???? HAD TO MOVE THE REAR END DIFFERENTIAL ABOUT 40 FEET... SURE HOPE I DID NOT BOTCH UP HERNIA. DAMN THING HAS TO WEIGH 300 LBS, but it is sitting under frame and going to rehang the thing this week

    Another Harbor Freight item, (I don't work for them, just I tend to be cheap) are the furniture casters. Doing differential work, they make life a whole lot easier. I have all sorts of different cast or cart set ups to move my crap around. My wagon is set upon a cart that started off as a man lift base. The body is easily moved around, but is stable enough to perform body work upon. I work alone, so I have to figure out how to do all this by myself. Doing all this work on our seasoned iron is only worth it if you are able to enjoy it when it's finished.

    Surplus stores are an excellent source of parts and information. The guys that have been in business for years, have seen and heard of where all the good stuff is hiding. You did well on your purchase. I'm going to look into some of my notes to see if I have anything on your vent line conundrum.

    Here is a descent diagram on the routing of the vent lines on an A1. The link to the forum is as follows; http://www.willysmjeeps.com/v2/modul...wtopic&p=52169
