Another long gap between updates, but this is a big one and also explains the long gaps between these overheating parts! This update includes custom radiator rubber tubes, fixing the thermostat elbow corrosion, some neat GPW finds, another fire extinguisher, and taking on a huge project!
After struggling with overheating issues last week, this week I dove into trying to diagnose what the issue might be, the thermostat, the coolant, the radiator, etc. Plus taking some temperature readings and a test run without a thermostat.
For the second year in a row, I was able to participate in the Corona, CA 4th of July Parade… and this time I got to tow a WW2 Jeep Trailer (first time)! But, as I drove home, the Jeep started to overheat, so I do some digging into the issue.
HAPPY 79th BIRTHDAY TO GPW #208102!
Celebrating 79 years today, having a Date of Delivery on June 26, 1944. Almost an 80-year-old gal, but she still looks pretty young!
I was invited to bring my Jeep to a USAF concert earlier this week in Irvine, CA. This update has a full recap of the event, plus a look at the essential ‘Jeep’ books a Jeep owner should have!
After a successful event last year, I helped put on another ‘Wheels, Tracks, and Wings’ event at the Planes of Fame Air Museum! This time, we made the event much bigger, we added another day, more vehicles, more reenactors, a reenactor camp, a Sherman Tank demo, presentations all day long, and more!
A small update this month, I take a look at how I shot the studio-looking photos of the Jeep without it being in an actual studio! Then I showcase some finds at a local militaria show including another TM manual, a WW2 Jeep toy, and some wartime jeep photos!
A quick update for this St Patrick’s Day with the latest on the Jeep and a few small projects over the last few weeks including a fix in the engine bay, a pinup photo on the dash, and a cool find on eBay!
Here’s part 2 of preventative maintenance on a Jeep including checking fluid levels and common areas to check elsewhere on the Jeep. Also, a quick replacement of the Axe clamp turns into a huge project. Finally, a look at a recent Air Museum event, a special license plate project, and more!
One thing often overlooked by Jeep owners is maintenance on their Jeeps! Here’s part 1 of preventative maintenance on a Jeep including greasing up the various spots on a Jeep and changing oil!
