    That’s a nice looking distributor. Points are a bit worn. Mine was rusty and packed full of sand. I couldn’t believe it was still making spark.

    I always stopped to move either lever. I wouldn’t think it would be possible to do High and low on the fly because of the speed difference of the gears. In and out of 4wd might be doable if the front...

    I just saw a picture of CJ2A with an F head motor the other day. I didn’t notice any holes in the hood. I will see if I can find it again.

    All the black is gone from mine. It appears to be embossed brass so this tag could be military. It was installed with pull rivets which makes me think it isn’t original to this CJ2A body and could...
