    Was asked by the parade folks to provide a narrative?
    Came up with this,
    comments????
    This is a 1952 m38a1 willys jeep. This particular jeep was in fact made in 1952
    this jeep was used in korea and southeast asia (vietnam war). The united states marine corps
    used this jeep until the sixties, during the 3 1/2 year restoration, i found original
    tactical markings that identified this jeep as belonging to the 3rd battalion, of the
    fifth marine regiment, 1st marine division. The us marines always got a big
    bang out of each dollar and this jeep probably saw service in vietnam. This restoration
    began in may of 2016, it was a rusty hulk. The engine turned over using a wrench
    to do so. The jeep was taken down the frame and all components sand blasted and restored.
    Total suspension rebuild, total body rebuild and same with motor (all four cylinders)
    i recreated all tactical markiings from the period, there are a few things left to complete, but that
    is for next summer

    I like your narrative. I am very interested in the Vietnam war. I like the way you tie in the history.

    "WHAT GEAR DID YOU STAY WITH?? LOTS OF STOP AND GO I WAS TOLD,,, ROUTE ABOUT 1 MILE"

    I usually go to 4 wheel low and 1st or second gear depending on the speed. Usually first gear high range has me into the clutch a lot.

    HA! LarryBeard! Thank God for your coffee cup! Got that all figured out now, cool running's.

    I posted this in the tech section. Here is a great way to find out your speeds. My CJ3A crawls at 1.6 mph at 700 rpm in low range first gear. Multiply the transfer case gear you are in times the transmission ratio you are in. Use this number as the transmission number.

    https://spicerparts.com/calculators/...rpm-calculator

    T90 Transmission Ratios:
    First 2.798 to 1
    Second 1.551 to 1
    Third 1.000 to 1
    Reverse 3.798 to 1

    Dana 18 Transfer Case:
    High 1.00 to 1
    Low 2.46 to 1

    CJ3A Rear Axle ratio:
    5.38
