AUGUST - 2010

PROGRESS

With the help of Chris, Jane and Nigel, I took the engine to Jeffrey Engineering. We bundled the engine in the back of a Transit and set off for Kent. As you can see, they have in their workshop most of the equipment and tooling needed to strip down, renovate and rebuild the engine (the crank gets sent away for re-grinding). There were at least five other Jeep engines in various states of repair around the workshop.  I will update later with what was found with the engine when being disassembled and what was done to it.

Further progress this month on completing the front axle, with new oil seals, brake cylinders and brake shoes. The diff was found to be OK, albeit it there was no oil found in it. The drain plug was slightly loose and I can only think that it had drained away over the years. The seal towards the prop is OK. So, after a good flush out, the diff cover was installed and the diff filled with gear oil.
