Here is some photos of my new fuel sending unit for my 1950 CJ-3A;
I ordered the new one from Walck’s 4wd. It came with new cork gasket. The float is not cork anymore.
You need to check if you are using 5 or 6 screws. Recent model use 6 screws.
I’m not sure if my cork float was original or not.
And it is installed!
A reader (Flyingfish) point me out to this CJ2A Parts database on this website Cj-2A.
It is very well made and complete. I’m sure a lot of time was put in it. It is very simple to use since it is based on the same design as the parts manual.
I wish I had the time to do the same kind of database for the CJ3A.
I will add it into my link page.
Here is the difference between a new repro CJ2A hand wiper (ordered from Walck’s) versus my original CJ3A;
The length of the arm is about 2 inch longer.
All the threaded part on my original one is gone.
I think I will lengthened the new one and reuse the handle of the old one.
You are looking for technical manual for jeep Willys MB, GPW or M38?
Of course you can go on Ebay … but why should we pay for it?
I found this website www.liberatedmanuals.com (via www.ewillys.com) with a lot of military documents. I do agree with the website author. I don’t want to give my money into the dirty hands of CD-ROM selling mafia.
But wait, there is nothing about M38 on that website? Right! So a reader from ewillys point me out to this website www.archive.org. Voila! You can now get all the manual in pdf format for free! They are in the public domain.
