THX me too.

Yanked all 50+yr old wiring not going to use any of it.
Old 3 on tree manual column is also out and will be replaced with more modern one. Also clutch pedal assembly removed.

Messed with aligning passenger door today.
The doors had obviously been removed and only had a few loose bolts and way out of adjustment.
Driver side can barely open/close but will have to wait until I can move it to a spot that allows opening door far enough to get @ bolts.

This is good. Very good. I'm really happy to see this happening.

Try Auveco for hardware. They have an absolutely unbelievable selection of oddball automotive stuff. If Auveco doesn't have it, you may have to make friends with a machinist.

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

Tony, you may want to ring Marshall's Industrial Hardware down on Miramar Road at (858) 271-5555. They might have them and can put some aside for you.

Just curious but why change the wiper motor to a later one? Is there an advantage?

Size, easier to wire up intermittent wipers.
I'll be using a later GM column so controls will be on column as well.

What year wiper motor did you use? Correct me if i'm wrong. You are going with a new or out of a newer jeep wiring harness right?

Motor was from an 89, I think they started using smaller ones in 87?
I have lots of random parts in my garage. This truck is gonna be a mutt lol.

Since it has no power anything building a harness will be simple.
The column it's getting is from a 96 roadmaster wagon. I started mocking/fitting it yesterday.

I am also starting to mock up a brake booster and pedal assembly from the 96 roadmaster. Both the column and brake stuff will needs mods to fit, I think they can be made to work.

Started on another item on list yesterday.
The rear suspension.
It's a post mount(rear spring) 1975 J20 frame and the posts were moved to shorten the wheelbase to ~126".

Problem is the rear posts ~8.5" from original location.
This resulted in the shackles collapsing into springs with any suspension movement and that obviously just won't fly.









Still need to clean up the welds, and have some ranger leaf spring hangers that look like they will work well.

Since the posts are so large will be ordering some different shackles? and replacing the shackles.
Probably replace the spring eye bushing as well it's in pretty poor shape.

I should have lifted the bed off the frame! Was more difficult than I expected due to lack of workspace with it in place.

Tony,. Take a look at some Ford bed bolts. Couple different lengths in the F series, and look at the ranger bolts too. They have a bigger head, with torx,. T50, really a TP50.

As usual got delayed...ran into a couple snags.
- Older HD J20 shackles wouldn't fit in the ranger hangers.
- Ranger hangers need 3" wide bushings. Chevy C10 bushings are correct 3" width for record.

So for now redid a pair of the newer style shackles. The beefier J20 shackles would have required good amount of grinding to fit.
Can see in pic how much shackle sticks out from bushing and they hit/wouldn't fit in the hanger "pocket".



So onto driver's side...







Both sides done!
So cross one item off the VERY long list of things to do!
Rear suspension is now functional.

Google keeps screwing with photos and other online stuff, sometimes they just randomly disappear.
Eventually I'll need to find a different solution for all my online pics.

It happened before on this thread, and has happened with other pics/forums/etc. Unsure why/what they change...

For whatever it's worth, Flickr has been working well for me.

Google has become too big.
