  1. Hello everyone... hope someone can help? Going around my 1945 Willys Mb and half of the grease nipples are blocked so I’m struggling to lube the joints during routine maintenance. I seem to remember being told of a person who replaced all the routinely accessed grease nipples with NEW metric nipples....the problem he said was that the Willys Mb doesn’t have one size grease nipple thread! I want to replace the blocked nipples but I’m lost as to what size and where to buy new replacements. Thank you to anyone who can advise me.
  2. Give me a toot next time you see me around mate! Great that there are other HMV on the Fylde coast...:cheesy:
  3. Only had the jeep a short time and just enjoying driving her. Over the years a previous owner has painted the jeep in a US Green with star markings but the markings have been removed leaving faded remnants! At the moment returning her to the original Dutch markings and colour is the plan although I could do with help regarding the paint selection and decals? Do you have any idea how I could trace the jeeps history? Thanks for the post mate
  4. Hello to everyone. Having just joined this great site I thought it only good manners to introduce myself, Andy aka Jimmythejeep (the username is courtesy of my two kids, Sally & Sam who have named the jeep jimmy). About 3 weeks ago I bought a 1961 ex Dutch Army M38-A1 Nekaf Jeep . Last year I toured the D-Day landings with my Dad and brother AND had a great two days at the 1940's Wartime weekend at Lytham. This meant the thirst to own a military vehicle would not go away!! When I saw the jeep advertised I just kept on smiling... Living on the coast at Lytham St Annes my wife and kids have loved cruising the promenade for an ice cream in the Jeep for the past month. Now starts the unknown ground of the mechanics, canvas repair and chasing the history of our Dutch Jeep which is a bit scary but exciting. Speak soon, thanks.
