    You've done well. The fuel tank well straightened out just fine. Cursing is just part of the fun of old heeps. Sometimes it is finding the right combination of swear words to make things fit right. Looking good!

    ton of welding to be done, and i did manage to get the area on passenger side to accept the support bracket, took some finagling to do so, but it will be right and tight and do what it is supposed to do. and it had actually broken taking it to be blasted, but was able to weld a satisfactory hold on it and i was able to match up the separation precise. and welded it, and actually did weld it rather well, but it was two pieces of same kind of metal

    Shore Power/Jump Start Receptacle

    Could that be the recess for the shore power/jump start connector? If the vehicle was stationary and the radios were in use as a comm post, external power from a motor generator would connect there so the vehicle didn't have to idle continuously to run the radios.

    I looked at a couple of places for M38A1 wiring diagrams and the ones I found did not show this connector. But, we also know that all M38A1's are not alike (some have circuit breakers - others don't).

    I can't tell you if this connector would handle the current to jump start the vehicle or to keep a trickle charge on the battery.

    So, all I can say for a fact is that it is a connector for external power.

    Here is a link to a picture of a front bumper with lifting hooks.

    Power Connector - Revision A

    Of course you find the answer just after you admitted "I dunno ...".

    The connector goes to the battery post on the starter. It connects directly to the 24-volt point of the electrical system. One connector goes out to the right fender and another goes back aft for radio power.

    I am sure that this could be used for both external power for radios and as a jump-start connector.

    As you could see on the earlier picture, it sat in a little recess with a capped connector.

    Do you have the recessed metal and did any of the three tubs have a connector?

    got the recessed fixture, in fact had to cut it out of other jeep because i have a new panel and need to put the recess fixture back in again (ugh more welding) but no connectors but then again where in the hell would i get a jump from a 24vdc source

    As LarrBeard stated, the recessed section of the cowl is for the shore power connection. This is in fact to run the radios when stationary, plus to jump off the heep if the batteries die. Every once and a while, a set of shore power cables come up for sale, but the Christy charger are hard to find, if ever.

    Radio Jeeps have an angle bracket mounted to the top of the passenger side tool box. The angle iron would be notched for the harness cannon plug connector. The harness runs along the door opening.
