    Yuck!

    Working with old wiring harnesses is never a fun job. Outer covers have gotten old and frayed and the inner insulation is dried out and cracked. This failure is a bit more of an issue...

    Thanks. It looks like the '48 and '49 down to the push-button doors and the flatter horn button than on the later wagons and trucks. It also has the two-piece "Come here Dear seat" in the original...

    4X463 was the 4WD wagon. S/N 14811 puts in the first 15% or so of the 1950 model year.

    As we have learned, there is no "standard" or "conventional" with WO. I was surprised when I counted the slots on that grill and I had to look several times to make sure that I wasn't seeing a trick...

    Another Grill Variation

    At the 2019 Toledo Jeep Fest, there were several Jeep wagons. I remember that one of them was claimed to be a 46 or 47; I recall that because it was the only civilian Jeep vehicle older than my...

    I don't think you will see the whole starter current, just the draw from the coil of the solenoid. It will still be a pretty noticeable load to the Discharge side of the meter.

    Look at the two grills; the '48 truck and the '50 wagon both have the same 10 slot grill. The tell tale is the flat front - no...

    Rebuild Carter YF

    The Carter YF is a fairly easy unit to rebuild. I suggest two things:

    A. Clean it very well. Just a little bit of crud in those low speed or high speed circuits will cause a lot of trouble. In...

    Master Cylinder Heat Shield

    Heat shields make for good brakes. As they say in the phone commercial; "If the brakes don't stop it, something will". Not a good conclusion.

    Good Luck - and post some pictures..

    It's hard to see with the fuel pump installed. I tried to work a little digital camera back in there, but nothing doing.

    Maybe someone has a picture of an engine build up in progress.

    24-Volt Systems

    All M38's (M38 and M38A1) were 24-volt systems, and I am almost positive that only M38's were 24-volt. But, we have learned not to say things like "Willys never built a civilian 24-volt Jeep".
