Skipper good point I didnt even think about the bug catching aspects of the "hood ornament"

Bill I agree with you camo would look good with the gator head and as an added plus she will be ready for combat when she goes back to work teaching special ed

Alright you Loafers... CLEAR OUT! I'm bringing in some REAL Jeep stuff now! This is the continuing saga of the CJ3B "Mako- The Maneater". I think it is a 57 or 58, don't know yet. Here are the pics of things I have found. The PO was certainly a person of small commitment! Evidence discovered throughout the interior of this poor baby surely points to Jeep dementia. Between the fierce roaches, giant, mutated killer grasshoppers, and evil field mice, this has been one risky job! The following pics are graphic and not for the faint of heart!

Two more...

Are these aftermarket locking hubs or factory? I keep looking for the stashed pistol, but if there is one it has rusted to the tub!

Skipper rust bucket is too nice of a term for your find, however me thinks "Da Iron Oxide Episode" is a mo betta name.

And you could sell the tape on E-Bay as Percy Sledge or mo fitting Percy Sludge since it seems thats whats on it!

I can see the PPO (the guy MY PO bought it from) sitting in the Jeep, eating his Beenie-Weenies, washing it down with quality Busch beer! There was a divorce involved with the selling of the 2A and 3B, and SHE got the Jeeps! HE must have been camping in this one!

The floor of the Jeep is a solid sheet of aluminum, hence, no rust. It completely fooled me! Rust out the wazoo, as you would expect. But I can fix it! (Shut up, Paul!) There really is NOTHING left of the original floor. Oh well, at least I can say I have a 3B! My plans, and they are long term plans (after my 7) is to install a small block and 4 speed, installing a "modern" NT driveline. So if anyone out there wants an original 3B drivetrain let me know. I would like to keep a D44 in the rear. If you wanna swap for the things I want send me a PM.

The driver's side drum is frozen and won't turn. I can't get the drum off. I remember 1993blackyj having this issue too. Guess I need to go back through his thread. If you have ideas that would save time, I am listening! I have used all the hammers I own, except for the big dogs, and I don't want to break anything.

Clay is doing overhead TIGing now, and by the end of summer he will be certified in that as well. He wants a TIG setup BAD! This thing needs a LOT of TIG work... I hope he still loves me when it comes time to work on this heap!

This is a COOL Jeep!

You are just FAR too generous Professor! Should I send you the tape? I think She-Gator was talking about how much you listen to PS in your shop??


edit* I made the comment that both of these old Jeeps had the T18, but I retract that statement! I believe this is a T15??

Oh my... all I got to say... wow. Good luck!?

As for the drum removal, it is no doubt going to need replaced anyways, so maybe a cut off wheel and BFH to bust it apart?

Thanks any way Skipper for the offer may you could offer it to Bill as a trade for a new shift knob. The way I see it a new shift knob would be a major upgrade to "da iron oxide episode"

I haven't given up trying to remove it yet. It is soaking in Blaster now, maybe that will loosen up some of the IRON OXIDE! Don't want to bust it... someone may need it for an all original rebuild. I will be going with a D30 up front, so I don't HAVE to free it up, I just want to be able to roll it around.

Oh ye of little faith! I'll let you ride in it some day!


Pulled the plugs, shot Blaster in the holes. Block is frozen. Oil is gray with water. I don't have a socket big enough to fit the crank pulley. Plugs are black with gunk... guessing this thing was smoking pretty badly. Number one plug is worst.

I pretty sure I saw a tear run down the side of Clays tub, in one of those pictures.

It's a two piece hood. Don't know why it was done that way because it is flimsy.
