I just picked up a 1951 Willys Cj3A last week. It is in good shape and runs well. I reading everything that I can get my hands on, but one thing that definately has me confused is, How do you check the transmission fluid? How do you add fluid?

I guess that has the T90 in it. It shoudl have a fill plug and a drain plug. unscrew the fill plug and see if its full. If not fill it up till it gets up to the fill plug.

Ive got a 48 CJ3A.

You should find a fill plug on the drivers side and a drain plug on the passenger side of the transfer case. I have a 52 with a leakiy tranny.

Post up some pictures of your new ride! It is always wise to change all your fluids when buying a old used jeep. Do engine, tcase, tranny, axles, and radiator.
