It followed me home

Recommended Posts

May I suggest pinning the cap on, a postvise is an impact tool and so over time the cap might work it's way off, a couple of small pins will keep it in place. Drill a couple of  small holes through the cap but  *NOT* all the way through to the interior of the screwbox but into the outside a ways then insert a small rod---perhaps brass and brad it in place.

If it works loose I will use a set screw but it's tight enough for now.

For those that love old Jeep's This one followed me home from a Sheriff's auction around '89 or '90. It's all restored mechanically and pretty much original with the exception of being converted to 12 volt and street lights. I added the pto winch.

Thanks for the pictures.  I love old jeeps.  I really like the paint on it. Haven't seen a rear pto winch like that. Looks like a fun one to drive.

I've got a 75 CJ5 that I spent years trying to get a title for before I cut it up.  I've still got the axles, and drive train.  I've considered cooking up a small tube frame and making my vision of a side by side.

The pto winch is a very old Ramsey, something like 10 ton if I remember. It is fun to drive, although being Korean war era it's geared really low. Top speed on the hwy is 45 mph but in low four wheel it will climb a rough barked tree.:D

It's a 1953 M38A1 Willy's Overland Jeep.

Dad used to have a '42 Willy's. He had since he was 15, brought it back from my Granny's place,and sat in the driveway for a while. He then realized how much there was to do and what little time he had to work on it, mom said it had to go, so well obviously you know what happened. Now he's trying to bring back to our place an old 50's flat bed international.:)

Actually the tub on jeeps. I have a few vin plates and titles from a few in my mini jeep scrapyard. Closest old one I have to road worthy is my 66 cj5. But I have titles for a 77 and an 83. Also have a fun no vin off-road only named fubar that was a mud racer I the 80s but needs a t14 tranny rebuild. Man was that sucker fun.

Came home yesterday to find my father in law had dropped off a couple of old ladder jacks.  Not sure what they are going to turn into, I'm thinking some kind of campfire equipment.

Sounds like we have a few people with more than one addiction.  Jeeps along with Blacksmithing.  Well, speaking for myself those are 2 of my top addictions and the ones that make me smile and get excited when thinking about the next project.

Don't be afraid to think beyond the original purpose of the adjustment notches:
