    Ditto. Pelago had a lot less to start with!

    For my curiosity, is this an M38 or an M38A1, I can't tell the difference.

    The M38 all had the hinged grill, while only the first two or three years of the M38A1 had the hinges. The engine was set up in a power pack form, to where they could be readily pulled with the least amount of disassembly. We use the same method today in the current mil spec vehicles.

    I think the early M38A1 is similar to the CJ3B right?

    Just the engine. The CJ3B was a flat fender body, but to fit the F head 134, they raised the cowl four inches. The hood was also raised on the sides the same. The M38A1 came out in '52 but was the predecessor to the '55 CJ5. The M38s were produced for four years, '49-'52.

    5B60B4DA-B483-4CAA-893C-A406DC250D28.jpg. Ok this is great. The number is 1349430. It has a 7-13 above it but not sure if that is needed. Sadly it appears there is some rust in initial investigation. I donít think marvel oil will fix it properly! Iíll know more as I get a little further in. Cheers!

    Looks like a 198. Thanks for the info. So either I rebuild or replace not sure yet. Whereís the best place to get parts for a 198? Or if I replaced it where would I look?
