Usually a body tag in front of the passenger wheel well, I believe.

That IH slant four is 1/2 of the 392V8. They are a decent running engine if dialed in, but very finicky to get dialed in.

Thanks CSP-I will have to find a manual on it for sure. I don't know anything about that motor.

Also-the motor has a extra head w/it

Thanks again DeafJeep for the link.

Wow thank you. I probably isn't but ............

At any rate I wouldn't sell-going to pass this on to my grand kids, if and when I have some

Thank you for all the help-I'm not that good at searching.

the vin is on the dash and also on the frame at the front, i think passenger side, willy had a bad habit of making more jeeps than they could sell and would not vin them till sale time, so a 47 might really be a 46

that not a cj1, its not a early 46, that is a 46,47 maybe 48. the cj1 had a different body style, the early 45,46 had cutouts on side to hold the shovel that clamp to body. I say its late 46 because it doesnt have lockout hubs

Cool, thanks-we will see when I narrow it down w/a VIN# but after looking at some pics, it is looking like it belongs in the 46-48 date range. I don't mind, at least I have one now.

Been waiting on this since I was 16yrs old.

I have a guy who has a Buick 231 V6 (#6 cyl=25lbs) he wants to sell for $200.00. Would that be a better choice than the International slant 4cyl?

I do like the idea of seeing a 4cyl in the engine bay of the Willys though and from what I hear it runs and was bolted up to the tranny.

Not sure what it would take to bolt up the v6, I could ask the guy since he took it out of his Willy-might just bolt up as well.

Hum ?

Also, a guy in Reno just told me he has two CJ2a's and he is making a 4door out of another '46 he has, he just wants the tins. He will be taking pics of parts might come together a little more easier now.

The transmission and transfer case probably came out of the same Scout that the engine came out of. Those would have used the Dana 18 also, making it viable for use with the CJs offset rear axle. The Buick likely won't bolt up to it if it is the Scout trans. Just because something comes out of one Willys means nothing as far as compatability with parts in another Willys.

Personally I'd much rather have the 231 than the IH slant four.
