The question of which manual(s) should someone get, comes up often here on the 2A page. There are three manuals recommended to owners that plan on rebuilding or doing repairs and maintenance on their CJ-2A Universal Jeep: 

- Maintenance Manual
- Mechanics Manual
- Parts Manual

Those manuals can be purchased at these links:
http://www.acheronpress.com/dsb/index.htm
http://www.portrayal.com

*** As of Aug 2012 the above sources have either gone out of business or state they will shortly be doing so. At this time the only way to purchase the manuals is through eBay sellers. If you know of a permanent source for either of the manuals please PM me and I will update the links.

Auto-Lite Maintenance and Operation Manual
1950 Copyright

Not complete yet (I will be posting the remaining chapters as they get scanned) but decided to post piece-meal, rather than wait until the entire manual was scanned.

The 5 chapters available represent 85% of the manual.  Maintenance and Troubleshooting is next priority.

Broken down by chapter, to minimize bandwidth use.  All PDF files, suitable for good print quality.

Chapter 1: the Seven Basic Electrical Circuits

Chapter 2: the Starting Circuit (9 MB)

Chapter 3: the Charging Circuit (19 MB)

Chapter 4: the Ignition Circuit (10 MB)

Chapter 5: the Horn Circuit (1.4 MB)

Chapter 6: the Windshield Wiper Circuit

Chapter 7: the Instrument Circuit (3 MB)

Chapter 8: the Lighting Circuit

Chapter 9:  Maintenance and Troubleshooting

Another interesting manual is the 1952-54 Willys Service Standards book. It is 35-page manual of all the specifications (sizes, weights, torque loads, etc.) for the L, F, and 6-cylinder engines and related parts (axle nut torque, etc.). I've reproduced it and more info can be found at: http://www.thecj2apage.com/forums/willys-service-standards-manual_topic18886.html?KW=

I'm also working on a reproduction of the 1945-1958 Willys Parts List of Popular Parts which is a 76-page book that shows all parts and cross-references them to various years and vehicles. Should have it done in a few months... R
