    M37 Driveability

    Winch trucks seem to wear out the front tires. Front brakes can be upgraded to disks. Lockout hubs are a good update. Mine has 12v lights with added brake lights. Also, Gama goat taillight lenses can be used on the stock taillights or the larger late style lights can be fitted.

    Titling was too easy.

    Most VA DMV's are a crapshoot as far as knowing how to do what you need. Some issues may require a visit to DMV HQ in Richmond. There's a nice lady in the title section who can solve most issues.

    M38a1 jeep horn stuff

    I got a horn rod from Bensinger in PA. You can access the bottom of it by removing the side plate of the steering gear. Removing the fender is helpful.

    What is a “motor Pool” CJ5?

    The army had CJ-5's in Korea for TMP vehicles. My unit had one signed out for daily message delivery. The battery was on the firewall and it had a govt. purchase/warranty sticker on the dash. It had a hardtop.

    Troubleshooting Help Needed - Distributor Not Rotating

    Hi. I had one where the distr. shaft froze in place causing the drive tab to shear off. I pulled the distr., freed up the shaft, lubed it again and had the tab rebuilt by a friend with a machine shop.

    Troubleshooting Help Needed - Distributor Not Rotating

    I had one that had the shaft lock up. That caused the drive tab on the end of the shaft to shear off. Pull the distributor out and check. You can get a new shaft or lube up the old one and rebuild the drive tab.
