View Full Version : Could use your help here...

08-05-2016, 11:28 AM
Purchased a Willys 1944 MB. Totally restored. Looks great in my garage because the guy who sold it to me can't get it to run for more than half an hour before it shuts down. Ready to ring his neck. Nice guy, but can't get out of his own way. Replaced battery since it was running at 75% without use. Charged original battery back up, but it would go back down to 75% (again without use and sitting for only 2 days). Installed new NAPA battery yesterday, Jeep started and ran for half an hour then shut down again. Strong smell of gas as repeated attempts to start it up failed (I know, flooding it). Just made a "gggurrll" sound and won't turn over. New battery strength was 83% this morning. I'm at a loss and don't want to have request a refund. He's had two mechanics work on it, but problem has not been resolved. Could use some guidance here as we want to use the Jeep for some upcoming documentary films. Patience, patience, patience....being tested.


Appreciate any feedback.
