Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

Iโ€™d love to have one of these to parade our hounds around on.
You're welcome ๐Ÿ˜Š Yes it's a very nimble and fun vehicle to drive it's only 60 hp but it goes surprisingly quick with the CJ-2a L134 engine in it. Very nice to just cruise in 40-45 mph.

Focus, That is the GO Devil engine. See attached article for more info. Those engines are great and reliable with reasonable care.

Hats off to you for maintaining a piece of automotive engineering history.

I did a little sparkplugs analysis on it a couple years ago and i think the mixture is in a sweet spot or a tad rich but I'm happy and my father too. Here is a pictures of 2 plugs. The other plugs had about same colors that varying slightly like this.

It is better to run that engine a little rich to help keep the valves cool. Just keep an eye on the plugs....if they start to carbon or soot up then you can adjust things towards the leaner side. Do you know what make and model the carb is? I am asking so that you check to see that accelerator volume is adequate. The early engines were starved of fuel upon initial acceleration.

Agree. If I remember correctly the make of the carburetor is Carter WO-539S

Thanks, just wondering if they equipped them with oil filters back then as they did the Sherman tank, which in no way was a small part as to the reliably of said (Allied) vehicles...
You're welcome ๐Ÿ˜Š I believe they did. I've would imagine the reliability would improve with a oil filter but i could be wrong at a war fare sense
