  2. I think my e-brake lever is installed backwards

    I think my e-brake lever is on backwards, if that’s possible. 9435
    This 3-B is a basket case so a previous owner at some point may have reversed its orientation. Last time I drove it out the...

    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...

    Well, anymore anyone is an old timer if they learned to drive on a stick, type on a typewriter, dial a rotary phone, etc.

    Ok, so the old timers are probably rolling their eyes about now, "Here we go with the 'My generator isn't charging' conversation again!"
    Yup, you said it. A brief search over the internet yields...

    Ok, well that answers a question I had in my mind if it was possible other than cutting a hole in the hood. That isn't a stock carb. I wonder what it is? I played with the idea of doing fuel...
  7. 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.
    It doesn't seem to be charging: ...

    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,...

    bmorgil, I admit that finances play a big role in my decisions here. It's tough enough justifying what I spend on what amounts to a giant Hotwheels in my wife's mind without trying to push things a...
  11. How to interpret Auto-Lite generator SS#s

    My jeep has a mind of its own--a least that's my excuse for why it's painted Navy gray instead of red or jasper green like I planned, and why it's getting a rebuilt generator instead of an...

    Thanks for the ideas. Agreed that devices only stall a determined thief. I checked some other vintage vehicle sites also. One of the more interesting ideas in the MG site was to have a switch that...

    Kill switch

    I just wanted to get some feed back on what kind of kill switches people put in their vintage Jeeps. Portland auto theft is out of hand, and though most thefts seem to be oriented toward catalytic...

    Passenger seat frame

    At long last my basket case CJ3B is coming out of my driveway. I can't believe I've been tinkering off and on for over 10 years. There are still some issues but I'm optimistically taking it off the...

    Thanks for your response.

    From what I can tell, I have hardened seats. I also took the good #1 valve with lapping compound on the #4 seat to lightly clean it up to get a better look. Both cleaned...

    Fuel Tank Sender

    I have my tank off, giving it a clean up. It looks better on the inside than the out which makes me think the previous owner bought a new one from ďTankautoĒ just before giving up on the...

    4606
    Thanks all. I ended up going with Allis. It’s sort of like archeology cleaning the thing up, near as I can tell it’s been painted twice since original.
  21. Fram Orange, is it Chevy Engine or Allis-Chalmers?

    Iím getting around to buttoning up my engine after blowing a head gasket on my CJ3B. It occurred to me while I had so much stuff off of it, I should repaint what I can. I sort of feel like a kid...

    In a similar vein, I sent my radiator in to see about getting an estimate for rebuilding. It turns out that rebuilding it will cost me about the same as buying a new one from KW. I'd like to...

    On a similar thread, I need a new radiator. A local shop says they can re-core my original for about $550 --estimated before pressure checking to see if it's a more minor problem. KW has one...
