I just picked up a 1947 jeep that has been modified and has a v-8. I am not sure exactly the engine I have. My boys and I are going to work on it and thought I better get some advice before we start. After reading, my plan so far was to replace all fluids, all rubber, plugs, battery and then maybe see if it will turn over?

That is the idea, to drive it like it is I hope to safe the top, but have to have a welder look at it. Man, I hope the engine and transmission are good.

Any pictures of the engine? A few of us may help narrow down what you have under the hood.

It is under tarp right now and we are getting nailed on the west coast with a big storm. When it lets up I will take some photos.

What is that? It's old. Valve cover hold down bolts thru the covers, fuel pump on top of the intake? Paper oil filter.

Talking with a welder friend. He doesn't think I can salvage the top. That is too bad

You can salvage anything. You should see some of the historic buildings we have been involved with saving. Lol
