Yep, found a place that would sell a single spring, I bought one for now, and before winter will have to buy the other front spring. This got me on the road/trail for the summer.

It promptly sheared a gear in the t-case, and I just got that fixed this weekend, I have not even had time to take the top off. I thnk I may have burned the points at Snowfari as it is running a little weird, and once in awhile I get a small backfire. I will be looking at that soon as well.

Some recent pics.





Made this from the original broken cam.



Shot with all the levers, I just installed the PTO.



Supposed to look like this



this is what it looked like...



All fixed now though.

The XRC8 works well. It's nice to know that I can lift my jeep with it in an emergency. Don't try this at home kids.

I've seen this build thread before but I don't think I ever ventured from beginning to end. However I just did and all I can say is WOW! Great job! I've always wanted a 2A or 3B, and I'd love to get my hands on one just to have up at the mountains for wheeling on all the tons of old logging roads and stuff up there. The 7, my cousins Wrangler, and my Uncles Cherokee all seem too big. Keep up the good work and always keep us updated!

Very nice. I thought this Jeep looked familiar when I started to read this. I saw some pictures you posted over on the theCJ2Apage.com.

Thanks for the props, I should be doing a Pertronix in the distributor sometime this month. I have to get it running right for the winter snow run. Trying to figure out which part number to use.

It was very easy to install, about 15 minutes if I hadn't dropped a screw. I need to richen the mixture a bit more now, and adjusted the timing. I cannot believe how much smoother it seems to run. It's first run will be in 21 days. I will let you know then I guess!

Here's a picture of my 1950 CJ-3A, my 1953 wife, my dog Dooley, and a 1954 Kay bass. The Jeep was sold 12/1/10 and the wife and bass are still on the market.

Awesome jeep mang!

Years ago me and my dad had a 1952 M38A1 with an alum hard top. We researched the numbers on it and found out it was a radio jeep during the Korean war stationed on Guam. It was in really great shape and all original except the tires and wheels and we had to make plywood doors cuz the originals was missing. Anyway my dad let my grandpa take it for a while and for some unknown reason my grandpa traded it for a stupid dodge D50 pickup.

I also have a 1954 CJ3B (high hood) in my back yard with a 225 V6 but the tub is in BAD shape, and it doesn't run right now but it had PLENTY of power when it did run!

I love the Old Iron! Great job!

I like Willys great build.

Where do you get your bearing and suspension parts from? I am renovating my 1946 Bantam civvy trailer and need to repack the bearings, replace the hangers and a couple of other suspension items.

Consider offers on the dog? Nice looking Jeep tho.
