When you look at the engine head on from the engine compartment..... you notice it's slightly cocked to the right.... This might take awhile....Chuck Lutz wrote:Take a look at the clutch tube....the clutch CABLE is held onto it with a CLEVIS PIN and COTTER PIN, not a bolt and washers....those should be replaced.
I noticed that the tube itself is practically falling off the round ball pivot on the transfer case so I wonder if this is even mounted or if you are holding it in position?
Either the mounting on the frame is wrong, the clutch tube is wrong or cut, or the trans/transfer case is off-set to the right....how about a couple pics to confirm that?
We decided to check the alignment on all the brakes since we're still not getting much stopping power. We adjusted the fronts, now for the backs. We'll probably bleed the brakes again.
While we both know the horn is not the correct one (now) we've decided to utilize it. Like said before... she ain't perfect, and we plan on having some fun with her. I know some rivet counters probably cringe at the idea, but she's ours! We plan on replacing non-correct / authentic parts as time goes. Besides.. we need a horn to pass registration don't we? Any links to proper horn installation would be really appreciated! And for that matter don't we need the correct wipers, which would be hand powered?
As some people requested better pictures of the miscellaneous stuff here they are... (sorry for the crap pictures!)
So we've come to this situation....
Frame: Willys MB
Engine & Transmission: Ford GPW
Body: Ford GPW (repro)
So what do we call this thing??? We've got these pretty new plates to be installed...
As you can see...we have a Ford GPW plate in the center, BUT due to a mix-up, we also have a Willys plate coming in the mail. When registered she will say Willys on paper, but thats because were using the frame number on her. So.... what plate do we use? Willys or Ford?
