Cool project Willys! We had a panel version with the side by side rear doors when I was a kid. I helped my dad transplant a Studebaker V8 into it... ( was in the 3rd grade (mostly washing parts and reaching with my little kid arms where dad's adult arms would not fit...)

Is that one a restore, or going to be a custom?

I had a plan to shorten t one of the wagons, add second doors, build a long frame and add the truck bed for a "crew cab." That much body mods was not going to be easy with the tapered body however... (Had a similar idea for a Falcon wagon 4 door- bob the back and add a Ranchero bed. never found the donors...) I did get tow models of the Ranchero and did a splice to see what yi might look like...

59 Willys with L6 flathead. Always wanted a Willys Wagon ( had some older CJ's - 68 & 72 w V-6's -when I first started driving ). Gonna stay original with this, my first ever vehicle restoration project...lots more work that " fettlen lanterns! " Think I've found all the rust ( famous last words! ), now for the panel patching and replacement, then body off for mechanical.

Oh oh! Here come the memories. My first vehicle was a 1950 Willys station wagon. 2WD. It had been a military ambulance. Painted white with a red Cross on top. Great restoration project. Have fun!

Man I'm remiss on this thread!

Highlights in the last FIVE months...

  • Installed a new Kitchen Sink, twice (first one had a blister in the porcelain and I was committed so installed it and waited for the warranty replacement)
  • Tumbled and sorted 22 lbs or once fired brass
  • developed and loaded new "solid copper" loads for hinting (now required for all hunting in my state)
  • Old wood Ammo box conversion to "Expedition" case for 2 older 242's (NL & an A)
  • Brake wire shorted in the 95 T-Bird and I had to repair fused wires UNDER the dash,,,
  • Tire rotations and fixed a flat on the DD rig...
  • Shortened a Samurai Drive shaft and replaced the DS in the Toyota van (non replaceable U joints - fix both ways now...)
  • Fixed a stuck and rotted pump leather in the new to me Radius Ltd. No. 1 brass single burner stove
  • New sink and counter top in the Master bath + all the darn plumbing
Hmmm Started with a sink and finished with a sink...

Well with things as nuts as they are here in Jersey I'm still working as we're essential as the machines don't fix there self. This is my moble shop for work, our grader had an issue this morning in Brigintine so off I go to fix it. The truck is a 01 F550 with everything I need to repair just about any breakdown that I don't drag back to the shop it's nothing to look at but it's a work truck can't wait for my new one to come on line it's much bigger and will be a looker when I'm done. Anyways we're gearing up for the worst but hoping for the best as we are busy with huge projects as we have taken on a few customers machines for repair and renting equipment that eventually does need to be repaired Which is where I come in and get it done

Changed out the ATF in the Mrs SUV. Will try a cheap surface heater on it for next winter. It doesn’t shift well at 10°F and below until the fluid warms.

Been “fixing” my oldest Chinese 125cc quad. Lots of bolts needed tightening, adjusted the carb so it idles without stalling, chain tension needed adjustments (2-3” of slack), and changed the oil. Or whatever was in the engine. Will be interesting how it lasts.

OK This afternoon I got done early enough to get started on the new muffler for the Project van. got the old one cut out and the mew trimmed to allow for the angle the pips will be to one another. But not without battle damage. the sawzall caught and hammed my right hand into the concrete and nailed the two smaller fingers, (blood and swelling...) and my lower back is spaziming a bit. I need to get that calmed down for sure!

Heat pad last night in bed and my back is near normal. good enough to get back to the muffler.

Welding the muffler in this AM before the rain starts (almost any time now.,..) - almost done - the last hanger needed modified and I had to let it cool before I weld it to the pipe, (so I don't melt the rubber part of the hanger...)

About once a decade I have to put on the full upper leathers to lay on my back and weld something under a rig. Its a PITA to get in and out of...

Me in the full upper leathers - I hate when I have to weld "blind" Up on top and behind between the pipe and frame. I did as much as I could on the muffler before the last bit to connect it...

Last Hanger.jpg


And done. Tucked a little bit higher and the turn will clear the receiver hitch (that's the next major add to this thing) - Test drive (don't tell the C-19 patrols...) and its nice and quiet.

Long story short:

The Sears Jr started acting up and apparently the PU was plugged. two days prior off and on efforts to clear it got me nowhere,

I DID clean the rust and flakes out of the fount, (almost 24 hours of white vinegar soak and several BB dances). but the PU would simply not flow, or at least not long...

It finally quit acting like a one way valve after all the prior cleaning, plus overnight in MEK, plus more cleaning, plus heat and quenching several times. So I tried it and it has fuel! I let the valve flush a bit, then added the genny, and YES! a steady stream at wide open valve! turned the cleaner several times and its good.

I put a few things away and its still going so keeping my fingers crossed!

Burning bright:

Sears Jr LIGHT.jpg

I did have time yesterday to do some detailed cleaning so the fount is clean if not pristine, Someone clamped it in a vise at some time in its past, so it has two flats from that, otherwise just paint scrapes. Apparently the font was plated with the something (cadmium? I don't believe galvanize). Greze-off, did a great job removing the gunge.

I also spent some time on the vent as it has plenty of porcelain damage but it also had rust stains on the porcelain, still has some old slightly darker paint someone rattle canned on, and soot and rust underweight on the white porcelain. other then the gunge, all THAT sneered at the Greze-off, so I tried a short soak with paper towel soaked in Simple Green (hoping to make progress son the old paint). A LITTLE rust stain came off but not a lot. nothing was making any serious dent in the rust or soot...

So its porcelain, and I've been in and out of out near new porcelain kitchen sink , and decided to try the Soft Scrub Cleanser SWMBO likes so well and almost ALL of it came off! Maybe a ten min soak and then some scrubbing with paper towel?

This might be worth a tray of blackened globes?

So it still looks like the battered old solder it is,but it now looks like an old solder that has had a shower!

Some shots of the vent - I may try an overnight immersion in SG for the old paint...

Sears Jr Vent 2.jpg
Fingers crossed it STAYS clear!

No pics yet as my batteries died for the camera (had 2 sets but one is NOT holding a charge...)

Yesterday I cleaned the 519 Radiant Heater I got off Eprey, straightened its generator and started straightening the upper rim of the reflector (using some insulated 12 ga wire for the backer whi;e I used smooth tomgs or a tiny plastic mallet)

Today I spent some time finding a couple of mandrels for un-denting the tube of the pump for the KK Mod/ 99 tank. Someone used a mallet to knock the wing nut loose (Pump doubles as the fuel fill cap) and had a history of missing.
I used a piece of aluminum tent pole sleeve for stage one (and my lifter pulling tool to get it back out) then the head of a 3/8 X 12" socket extension for stage two, then the same in a vise to tap at it with a small wooden mallet to finish. still looks rough on the outside, but the inside now runs smooth! Very happy the brass did not crack!

The wing nut wings are still bent and will stay that way. I don't want those to snap off...

Cobbling together an Akroleman CL2/Northstar lantern here, I may need more silfos brazing rod.

Akron 134G fount, propane Northstar frame, Coleman CL2 valve with a Northstar generator.

Some drilling and brazing to attach a 220 bung, which surprisingly is the same thread as the CL2.

Just for posterity, the center of valve is .75" from the center of fount. Which leaves the original bung as a location for the frame holder stud. Which will be brazed in the bung for frame support.

3/4 of a gallon fount. ?

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

Werner, that is a cool frank!

Is that fount bigger than it looks? 3/4 gallon? 96 oz,? (3X a factory NS?)

It does look a bit bigger, but not sure about 3X? (Maybe the camera angle)

I'm working on the KK 99 3 burner and was soaking the 4 burner screws with Kroil all day (in the hot sun)

The I hit it with the torch a bit and quenched with Kroil, and after it cooled supported the burner and worked two of the screws out!

That got the burner completely out as the other end needs new metal where the screws go (fractured and the screws are completely busted out of the sheet metal - that's later...)

But now I'm working on those last two, and those are rusted even worse, so I'll need more Kroil, and more heat I'm sure... Goal is to not only get them out, but to salvage the original screws if possible... It will be touch and go frankly.

So I just hit them with more heat and Kroil, and realized that now that the burner is out, I can soak that end of the burner in Evaporust easily! That should open things up!

I'll let the Kroil work overnight and then setup for that soak...

Not today but about 3 weeks ago the customer ran a tree thru it and there was metal in the tree and it caused the blades to shatter and come off the drum and it took a huge chunk out of the anvil and the only way to set the anvil is to climb in the business end. (The roller was held up and locked and motor disabled)

Fiddling with my latest KK Mod 3 stove, yesterday (Had it over a month!) and the tank is working perfectly, so I tried a fire up and got lots of orange flames. It would NOT settle down and I knew I wasn't flooded... (I've learned the preheat process)

Yesterday I opened both burners and gave them a perfunctory cleaning but no joy... A wire gown the spout got no debris.

So this AM I took the air passage cover plates off and one side was choked with a spiders nest. Not surprising, its been in a garage or other storage for year and years...

For those not familiar with the older KK burners the screw holding the plates on is bent at the factory to its got a straight pull on the angled plates:

FRONT - Clean enough

And BACK where the web was.

cleared those and did a bunch more wire probing and got the webs out and NOW there is Joy! at least for the main burner, the Butterfly knob on the secondary burner is really sticky, (I got it part way out with prying) and is now soaking with Kroil.

I'll get a money shot after the secondary can be opened... I forgot when I tested.

EDIT - Money Shots - the second is turned up to the point of overburnm so a hint of yellow.

I also needed to plan for how to get hot food on my hunting trip starting next Thursday (I Hope) With ll the fires ud to half the National forest in this state were closed. They (mostly) reopened the one I wanted to hunt in, BUT No firs No lanterns or stoves that run on gas or propane!

While I could live on cold food, that''s not much fun; so I'm planning on some of the food being precooked, Wrapped in Foil and sealed in Baggies for the cooler.

How to heat? I've heated food up on the engine before, (Early V8; lots of room, so relatively easy.

The Sami is smaller and no real good place to put something, but the exhaust manifold is relatively clear, and has a heat shield so its not complexly direct.

So I did this with an "over the door" storage basket from Wallyworld:

I'm thinking I can also put a metal canteen there and get hot water! I just need to leave the cap loose.

I added a wire to the basket above to keep a 1944 (alum cap, no gasket) Canteen from flopping around so that will be hot water... I also cleaned the canteen inside and out. (its been in my garage hanging for at least 20 years) - That should provide Hot water if not conveniently, at least so its available at times.

I also re-soldered one compromised solder joint on the KK mod 99 3 burner tank and the bobble test says its holding - I'm doing a longer time pressure test now... If THAT works, then I think the 99 is also operational. for that job I had to drain the tank ( I'd JUST filled it...), Dried it out (Funnel onto the fill port and I setup a small fan to blow into the funnel. it ran all night) - I could NOT smell fuel this AM! I then filled it almost all the way with water and used my mint torch and re-flowed/added solder to the joint seems to have worked!)

Repaired a zipper on the tent trailer tent, and restocked the pantry where needed. flushed and re-filed the water tank.

Found enough space under the hood of the Samurai for my 1 gallon SS wash station - it should get plenty warm enough for basic washing!

New LED Xmas light for the house:

I stripped the aging LED "icicle" lights off the hanging fascia boards they lived on (5 boards; disconnect each partial string and hang from hooks under the eaves or from the rafters in the garage), and replaced with "C9" sized multi-color LEDs, we are long overdue for a change there... So now we are into the old school look...

It takes a little time to mount all the lights on the boards but its a one time deal, then I had to insert connectors from string to string at the junction of each board (3 places, with a forth pending) after than putting them up or taking then down is quick! -It will be even quicker without the dangley icicle wires and bulbs tangling...

I want to do something with the 10 left over from the over the garage peak set that currently I "used up" down the corner of the garage. (I used 2 strings for the whole thing) and I looked for a suitable wreath, and would have added an extension to the 10 would be in the wreath, but that were either unsuitable or stupid $$ for a decent one. Maybe something else? I can get white/clear covers so maybe a snowflake of something?

Disassembled my tiny 1935, Craftsman/Companion tilting table T-Saw off the decrepit wood stand it came on some years back, in prep for its more more compact stand, (former typewriter table) - Motor will mount underneath, and I'm planning on a vacuum port for keeping as much of the sawdust out of it as possible, and some shelves & drawers under it for storage...

Tearing down a 425E for restoration. Going to give it to my son. Had planned to give him a three burner. May let him pick.

FINALLY figured out how to get those darn 'U-shaped' metal grill hinges out of the frame!

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

A while back I got a speedikook 6206 in a trade that was on a coleman 220E fount which someone had painted maroon. Good running stove once it warms up. I have a maroon steel proper fount for it, but it had a valve snapped off in it.

Today, i drilled out the snapped valve and removed the remains with an easy out. Then put the 6206 on the maroon agm fount.

Since i had a maroon 220 fount, sleeved down to the smaller valve size, and half full of fuel, and a valve frame and gen handy, and a rusty holed maroon agm vent ...

I'll tell what I did yesterday because I haven't got out there good yet today.

I added a 12 volt power supply to my workbench. I'm always needing 12 volts DC to diagnose something or run lights or something. I have a railroad crossing light that is running off of a car flasher that runs 24/7. There's just so much you can do with a power supply............. 45 amps at that!
