    Metalshaper is a youtube personality who does a lot of jeep maintenance videos. I don’t know that I have ever watched one of his videos but has a pretty big following on other websites.

    Did you really do .20 (2 tenths) or .020 (20 thousandth's)? The recommendation I read said .020.

    That sounds like it could be one of the transmissionís roller bearing sets to me. I donít think a ball bearing would act like that. Maybe the counter shaft bearings?

    I think that would be unlikely. MB, GPW, M38, M38A1 and CJ3A are the only ones I have heard of being in the military prior to and during that time frame. I researched it some for my ‘51 CJ3A because...

    Should not hurt anything on a daily driver. Modern fuel lines and carburetor parts should take it okay. I think 100% gas is critical for anything that sits at all. Alcohol draws moisture into the...
