    Front end Friday on steroids!

    That is a good number of flat fenders in that group. Would love to get ours out there. We are trying to get a group to do a ride soon in the Shenandoah mountains here in VA.

    Replacing L134 Head Gasket

    Finally had a day where I did not work late. So I replaced the head gasket and took it on a successful test drive. I have never seen my temp gauge this cool. Which is good. I will keep testing it.

    Replacing L134 Head Gasket

    All of the parts are now here. But I am heading out of town for the weekend. So it will have to wait a bit.

    Painted the head. The white is not perfect. But neither is the Jeep. It will do.

    Replacing L134 Head Gasket

    Do you have anymore info on this? Like exactly where to drill it? And how big? In the actual thermostat or the housing?

    Replacing L134 Head Gasket

    That is the plan. Gonna get some soon. Along with the spray copper. And I am taking the head to a machine shop to be hydrofluxed (or whatever the name is).

    Replacing L134 Head Gasket

    Thanks. I have ordered all 3 of those parts. Along with the studs, nuts, gasket, spray, etc. i am thinking of having the head magnafluxed.

    Replacing L134 Head Gasket

    I was driving the 3a last week and all of a sudden I had coolant blowing smoke through the exhaust. Dragged it home and let it sit. Finally got around to pulling the head today to confirm the gasket was toast. i olan on using aviation thread sealer and installing new studs and nuts. I plan...

    CJ2A vs Super Cars

    Agreed. When I hear people refer to them as cars I shake my head. I hear it most on the British car shows I watch. But when I hear it stateside, it boggles my brain.

    CJ2A vs Super Cars

    I love taking our 3a to the local cars and coffee events and having more people come look at the Willys thank the exotics. Granted I am looking at the classic Ferraris and American muscle
