    47 CJ2a intake manifold heater

    I'm wondering if the intake manifold heater is assembled correctly on my 47 CJ2a. The lever is always in the upmost position whether the engine is hot or cold so it is apparently doing nothing. ...

    I bought a tub through Kaiser for my CJ2a. I was pretty pleased with it. I'm not sure if it is the same source as Willys Overlander. It was made in Asia somewhere. Fit was generally very good....
