  1. Manufacturer unknown and nearly new condition, slight bend in mounting rail would easily hammer straight. Collection from DE65 or 2nd class postage £20.25, looking for circa £30 for the Seat itself. regards nick
  2. So I have made a new purchase of what I believe is a M606/CJ3B I have no history of the vehicle or Jeeps - I have always been a Land Rover person. I know it is a bitsa with Land Rover lights and heater but not sure what else is genuine. I cannot see a chassis number and have attached pictures of the engine number. The data plate on the dash shows a 2006 date and a modern style VIN hence the Q plate Wondering if people can tell me what is genuine and what is wrong. It has not run for 10 years so a full service and new oils is first priority Thanks Colin
  3. In the MV world, the "Holy Grail" is probably to find an original Jeep in its shipping crate. Of course, other than those at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in the holds of sunken ships, it's very unlikely anyone will ever find one. The whole "Jeep in a crate for $50" idea came from a post war scam, trying to con people out of their money. However, there are a number of photos around the net showing Jeeps in crates, although how they were packed and how disassembled they were seems to vary from picture to picture. This model was built for a friend, with the hood number matching his Jeep. T
  4. Can anyone give me some advice on a Jeep fuelling problem? I decided to rebuild my '44 Willys MB carb this week, as I suspected fuel starvation; I took the Jeep out a few weeks ago in the really cold weather and it kept cutting out at idle, but would start again with some throttle and choke, eventually I got home and it stalled and wouldn't start again. I got it to start a few weeks later, but it would only run with the choke and would cut out really easily when the throttle was opened. I have just rebuilt the carb using a kit I had from Dallas Autos, and put it back on the engine, but it

  14. Hi fellows, Somedays ago, searching for some info at the web, I came across this forum and this link. I must admit that I was really shocked with this restoration! I´m not sure if the restorer is located at UK neither if the jeep has been finished: http://www.migweb.co.uk/forums/projects-restorations/513006-non-vaux-1942-willys-jeep-ww2-ground-up-build.html If anybody of you know more about this story, I´ll be really grateful to read more about this one! Thanks a lot!
  15. Hello there, Has anyone got any advice re changing the bulbs in the headlights of my M201 Hotchkiss? Ive never done it before... Thanks Sam
  16. Finally got fed up with my Jeep not starting so I converted it to 12 volts. I’m sure somebody has already explained how easy it is but I thought I would jot down a few lines on how I did mine. I totally rebuilt my jeep from the chassis up about 4 years and wanted to stick to 6 volt but a couple of years later the battery wasn’t quite good enough to start it and I have been forever having to use the starting handle for the last 18 months. I tried everything I knew to stick with 6 volts and make it work reliably but basically I don’t drive it enough and you can’t seem to buy a good 6 volt
  17. Does anyone have any details of any jeep specialists in the NE of England? I need a gearbox rebuild and there doesn't seem to be anyone in the area? Your help is appreciated. Cheers Chris :undecided:
  18. A friend of mine has just bought a Jeep, without boring you all with the details, this supposedly professionally rebuilt Jeep, isn't !! The net result is apart from various other things which we can help him sort the gearbox jumps out of second on over-run badly, I know its not unusual but this one is extreme and it leaks a lot of oil, again I know they are not perfect but this leaves an oil patch the size of a top hat over night, its also nowhere near as smooth changing as mine. Getting the box out is not a problem but can anybody please suggest somewhere to either get this box re-built o
  19. Hi all. I am a retired IT manager and for years I have always done the sensible thing. Much to my wife's disgust I have purchased a replica WW2 jeep from Dog replica company in Newport, Gwent. this is a bit mad but you only live once! The jeep is mainly from a Jago jeep but has many original and authentic jeep parts. The markings are from the Band of Brothers program - Dick Winters personal vehicle. really looking forward to some calm weather to give it a good run out

  21. Hi just got my jeep this week after months of searching and disappointments. Shes in good fettle hence I've done about 100 miles this week, but the exhaust position means I get blackening all over the off side rear tyre and wheel. The previous owner used lead substitute I don't intend to. Having looked underneath there is some scope to move the exhaust a bit but not enough to kick it out past the wheel I don't think. Whats the views on adding a slight bend to the end of the pipe to divert it a little? The jeep is a 1943 Ford GPW with lots of F marked parts and the original engi
  22. Hi. My name's Rod and I joined the forum today. I've an interest in all military vehicles but my preference is for WW2 soft skins and I admit a particular fondness for the humble Jeep. i'm an office worker by trade, so take every opportunity I can to blat about in my mostly 1944, mostly Ford GPW, just for the hell of it. From what I've seen so far there's a lot of expertise out there, so I'm really looking forward to virtually meeting you all.
  23. as the forum suggests i know this sounds stupid but Am looking at re spraying my jeep (m38a1) & have got a tin of matt paint from a reputable supplier. I've test sprayed it (2 coats) & although the colour is good, once dry the paint seems to mark very easily when lightly scratched & i this will be no good for the jeep am i doing something wrong? or is this just how it is? would this be avoided if applied with roller? would this be avoided if i used a satin finish ? any tips greatly appreciated
  24. Can anyone tell me anything about this paperweight ?...............
