My Dads next door neighbor Jen, got her Grandfathers 1951 Willys CJ3A towed to her house. Hasn't ran for about 10 years. Her brother worked on it a few years ago, but couldn't get it running. He added a new battery and carburetor, but couldn't get it to turn over. Image

So we worked out a deal with Jen, we work on her Jeep and she gives us beer. :drinks:

Dad was able to figure out why the Jeep wouldn't run. 12 volt battery on a 6volt system. Gas tank was rusted out, so now it has a 1 gallon temporary tank. Got her to fire and run. Transmission, clutch, 4 wheel drive all work. Dad got all the wheel bearings and brakes replaced.

Continuing on body work. Dad had to have surgery to have cancer removed from bottom lip and jaw. He is going to take a break for awhile. Will keep photos updated as we go.

Jen did the prep work for the gas tank install this weekend. She plans to have the tub rhino lined in the future. Just wanted to get something under the tank before we put it in. Seats and rims are heading in to get fixed up. Dad had another surgery on Wednesday, but is still wanting to work on the Jeep. There is just no stopping him.

Oh yes, certified money pit it is.

Got the tank installed, replaced battery with a 6volt, changed coil to 6 volt, replaced battery wires, and got rims back from shop.

Just saw the Montana Plate....that explains the rust.

The tub floor rusted completely through in several places. Her Grandpa replaced it with some thick steel plate and did a nice job installing it.

Still might look better than mine. We'd have to get them side by side to tell.

Was a pleasure! This thing is going to be awesome! I can't wait to see it complete. All the work looks great.

Well the fuel pump went out. Only 2 bolts to replace, how hard could it be?? One of the hardest things we have done so far! Replaced an oil line that ran behind the fuel pump while we had it out.

Looks like a Solex carb, how's that working out for you? Hear lots of horror stories about them.

Other than being a pain in the ASS to install, it fired right up. No issues to date, but it doesn't drive much either.

Thanks Confirmer. Will update when we do some more work on it. Everything is kinda on hold now while Dad wades into week 6 of chemo and radiation. Almost done and he will be on the mend and back working on it.
