    Yup, I shot Mike an email. Just waiting for a reply. Looking at specs similars on the internet, it looks like it has a purge and a fill valve for filling from a bulk grease pump.

    Ok, good to know on both accounts. I also bought the heavy duty hub puller as I was under the impression that they do separate jobs. I probably need to get into the e-brake at some point since it...

    I think my e-brake lever is on backwards, if that’s possible. 9435

    Well, tear it all! Yesterday afternoon when I went to try the jeep, the battery was completely flat with no obvious cause: headlights, blinkers, etc. It was too flat to even jump it by myself, so...

    What's going on with my Generator?

    This is my first time messing around with a generator, so essentially my first rodeo. The regulator is new from KW and the generator was just rebuilt, all 12v.

    Hi, I'm no expert, but I own a '54 3B. Essentially a 3B is a step between the 3A and the 5. There are a handful of parts that are only 3B (in the early model): the hood, grill, radiator, cowling,...

  18. How to interpret Auto-Lite generator SS#s
