Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: I just got a 1948 cj2a. The jeep runs fine and evyting is in working order except the spedometer. Also, the transmission throws out of 2nd when using to slow the jeep going downhill. A few spots show up on the garage floor after running, but nothing major. My main question is on common problems/concerns. The electrical system has been changed to a 12v system and the brakes are original, as it seems this is a common replacement. Any advice or pointers would be appreciated as I am new to the jeep family (finally).

Tom, welome to the club. the first thing I would do if I got a new addition would be drain and change all your fluids, you may find water in anything or everthing. Plus you don,t know what or when things were changed, at least you will have an x-ray of the insides.(check for shavings ect..)Do a thorough lubing, learn to make "knuckle pudding" and where it goes, (see earlier post) Purchase a good manuel and parts book.But mostly have fun and turn heads.
