Trans shifts and drives nice now,  still working out some tuning issues,  i think it could run better. 
I also started to assemble my rocker guards.

finally have the 3B running half way decent,  so i was able to knock some other stuff off the list in prep for the NH run.  The sliders came together nice, and i was able to button up the front end,  tow points, and the vise fit nice over the steering box,   Figured the vise will be handy especially when i get the Underwood welder hooked up.

did some work on the 3B the last couple weeks,  So during the NH run, my two biggest problems (other then fire  :)),  were the engine running too hot, and some carb issues that kept creeping up, mostly centered around restarting and low idle stalling.   I was running the stock radiator, but with a smallish electric fan, and no shroud.  I also found out i had a bad thermostat,  which probably caused most of my cooling problems.

But in all the willys runs i have gone on, i have only seen cooling problems with systems that were modified.  Like different radiators, electric fans,  no shrouds etc.    Since i had an original shroud and fan, i figured i would put it back to stock,  replace all the hoses, (don't know how old they were) and install new thermostat and see how that goes.  In my limited testing, its cooling much better, and more consistent now.   My carb issues, im thinking are a dirty carb,  mine is a pretty fresh rebuild, but i had some line, filter and tank issues after i installed it and the carb might have got some crap in it, so i had Rick P build me a new one, along with the carb, somewhere along the line, the stock air filter was removed, and replaced with a halfassed K&N installation. Again, seeing the stock setup usually working better, i put it back on, but i did modify it to use a bigger, and better installed K&N element inside the stock housing.   

also After the run, my two small leaks were much bigger...LOL,  the Tcase i have to work on still, but im thinking its the front output seal.  The oil pan/timing cover was leaking too, i pulled them, flattened the flange, and put new gaskets on, leak is gone now,  also was able to confirm the timing gears were correctly lined up, so it really leads me to believe my running issues are the carb.

System is plumbed, minus one fitting I’m waiting for.  Goes to a tank under the drivers side next to DS,  then up to a retractable hose real next to the driver seat.

My attempt at a tire carrier,  didn’t want all the weight on the body, so its mounted to the frame, and can hinge down to open the tailgate, pull 2 pins, and its removed completely.   It will held up by some way of connecting the tailgate catches.  Also will carry a spare spindle assembly, and hub, maybe a outer axle shaft it i can get it to fit

Very nice work. You must be planning the Rubicon? So, when do you lock in the hub on the spare? LOL

After searching for a long time for a good 3B fold out windshield, the search has ended.  I didn’t only find a good one, I found a mint one,  pretty much taken off when new, and bounced around in storage for 50 years.   I love the hunt for these parts!
