    CJ3A 6 Volt Starting Help

    Greetings! So for the past year I’ve been working on my 3a to turn it into a vintage wheeler. It ran a year ago on a 12v battery but that fried my old starter. I’m positive the vehicle is 6v because it has a generator, are there any other indications that would prove it’s a 6v Jeep? Since...
  2. Frame Tweaks

    Gents, I am just getting started rebuilding my CJ3A. I got the frame back from sandblasting, they shot a coat of primer over it to protect it.

  6. Carburetor? CJ-3a with F-head, in-line 6 cylinder, Hurricane

    Hey guys, I'm new here. I just bought a 1953 CJ-3a (low hood). The PO put a homemade vent on the hood and swapped in the I6, F-head, Hurricane motor (not a flathead). Someone stole the carburetor off of it before I bought it, so I have no idea what was on there before. Needless to say, I am...
