    Internal vs. External Condenser

    I do dimly remember a "little cap" - "big cap" issue with the truck back in the mid-60's when I started driving it, but I don't remember much beyond that. If the distributor was for a 46 - 53 truck,...

    Metric Jeep

    Were the Australian Jeeps metric as well? I'n surprised the Oil Pressure gauge wasn't in KPa or Bar units.

    Early ('47) and Late ('58) Panel layouts

    Here are the two panel layouts:

    The biggest issue would be that the '47 temp gauge would read bass-ackwards with the sensor in the '58. I fought that for several years and I finally fixed it. ...
