Willys MB 1944

Post by Barnii » Tue Nov 26, 2019 12:47 pm

Good day,
This year I completed a complete renovation of my Willys MB. The renovation took five years. In this forum I have gained a lot of useful and valuable information. Please take this as my thanks to all of you, friends and lovers of green cars.
Thank you
Barnii

Hello Friends,
Thank you for the words of praise. I bought this Jeep from Mr. Steve Lash in 2009, I hereby send him a cordial greeting. Jeep seemed in good condition. He suffered from some childhood diseases (oil leak, noisy differentials and great will in steering gear). At that time, I was just working to renovate my Willys M38A1, using it in the condition I bought it. In 2014 I attended the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings. Immediately upon arrival, I disassembled the Jeep into the last screw. It took me five years to put it back together. When searching for spare parts I was patient and so the vast majority of used spare parts are originals. I also refurbished Monroe shock absorbers. The engine, both differentials and gearboxes are fully reconstructed. All bushings and bearings are replaced. Renovating Jeep to its present form was a road long, time-consuming and costly journey. However, I regret nothing. I liked doing it.

I completely took apart and once again pieced both axles. I've always tried to renovate as much of the original parts.
