Progress:



I am going to work with the parts I have so it will be a hybrid on MB/CJ2A. I am thinking of eliminating the tailgate at some point, but that is a couple years in the future.

looks like you have a great start on the jeep and what parts that are missing can be made or bought , are you thinking of building it into a mb or keeping it a cj ?

I got some work done on the frame yesterday.
I relied heavily on the BAMBAM rebuild thread. Thanks Jeff. (jpet)
It's like the ultimate rebuild guide, except I do not have all the fancy tools.
At least now I am putting the jeep together and no longer tearing it apart. Than's a good feeling.

Jon

it looks like you have a great 2a to work with, the body looks good and yes it looks like a mb frame with the machine gun mount and the bell crank shaft on the front axle

I was pondering that too, did some research on it. The coating is to keep any sand or casting junk from coming loose and getting into the bearings. If the original paint is still good you should be ok, but if you clean it off you should redo it with Glyptal varnish as even years later sand can work itself from the casting. Just what I found about it anyway     . Looking great BTW.

I already had the hoist and the lumber was $30 so I figured it would work without tearing the ceiling off the shop.

Tore the transmission apart today.
Looks pretty good except one sheared off set screw that I need an easy out for and 2 worn gears.
Hope I can get it back together once I get it cleaned up and the new parts arrive.

That's quite the hoist you have built there. You could probably lift the whole assembled jeep with that thing.  Keep up the good work.

I also crated up the body. It will be a while till I get to it and I have limited shop space. So I wanted it out of the way and protected.

I managed to make some headway today.
I surgically removed (hacked off) all the home made crap that the previous owners of 92889 had attached.
I think it looks a whole lot better.
I got some great tips from my friend Ken who came over to check it out and help.









I also got those home made shock mounts off.
What a pain !!!

Yup, real pros.
I think the previous owners attacked it rather than fixed it up.
The front of the frame is messed up too but not as badly as the back.
 
Nothing that time and money wont mend.

And I can't get the pins out of the tow bar to remove it. The pins have cotter pins to lock them in. Once the cotter pins came out I assumed the pins that the tow bar pivots on could be pulled out to remove the tow bar but they won't budge.

The front bumper (cross member) is a mess so I may just cut the whole thing off.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Jon
