What's size flathead did you use? I've thought about putting a 85hp in a CJ2A. What transmission did you use?

I used a 8 EBA engine first, but that needed a full rebuild. Now it has a fresh french copy of the flathead. I think it has arround 85-95 hp. It has a T90 gearbox behind it with an adaptor plate.
I used also the original steering system, only the pitman arm turns between the block and the exhaust manifold. Very narrow, but it works perfect.

Gerben :D
