Hello
currently I restore my second engine, which I bought. And I have the question, what kind of engine block this, MB, GPW? On the surface the oil pan is a date in the corner wrapped (6 26 1944)
I have found no identification. Maybe someone can help with:

Is that engine block serial number from a generator? PB4224 isn't from a jeep. The dipstick is from a generator, isn't it?
Is it true real Jeeps have flat fenders?

then I try the motor, which stand 30 years outdoor covered with a nylon.
after cleaning the oil pan and the change the stock ... we managed to get running him with the crank.
therefore I decided initially to mount it in this state, and continue with the body

Hello Heinz,

Looks like a great adventure to the high altitudes !
Your jeep is looking great surrounded by those German Kubelwagons ,

Please post more pictures of your unique, original jeep on long range adventures !
You did a great job saving your jeep from oblivion as a pile of parts,
to a testament of preserving the past for future generations .

Hi!
I like to put new photos on the Forum!

It was a trip of 300 miles in two days. We drove to a meeting of military vehicles

Driving on the Stilfser Joch Pass in the morning:

Arrived at the meeting point:

Driving around miles and miles on dirt roads:

After two days, three pass, two mountain huts, three full tanks and an empty battery, we came home three without problems
