That's quite the hoist you have built there. You could probably lift the whole assembled jeep with that thing.  Keep up the good work.

I already had the hoist and the lumber was $30 so I figured it would work without tearing the ceiling off the shop.

Tore the transmission apart today.
Looks pretty good except one sheared off set screw that I need an easy out for and 2 worn gears.
Hope I can get it back together once I get it cleaned up and the new parts arrive.


What type of paint would you use on the case? Do I need to paint the inside or be careful not to?

Thanks

I was pondering that too, did some research on it. The coating is to keep any sand or casting junk from coming loose and getting into the bearings. If the original paint is still good you should be ok, but if you clean it off you should redo it with Glyptal varnish as even years later sand can work itself from the casting. Just what I found about it anyway     . Looking great BTW.

it looks like you have a great 2a to work with, the body looks good and yes it looks like a mb frame with the machine gun mount and the bell crank shaft on the front axle

Mostly.

I got some work done on the frame yesterday.
I relied heavily on the BAMBAM rebuild thread. Thanks Jeff. (jpet)
It's like the ultimate rebuild guide, except I do not have all the fancy tools.
At least now I am putting the jeep together and no longer tearing it apart. Than's a good feeling.

Progress:



I am going to work with the parts I have so it will be a hybrid on MB/CJ2A. I am thinking of eliminating the tailgate at some point, but that is a couple years in the future.

Progressed slowed since the kids are in summer break from school.
I did manage to get the rear springs done however.

I used dry graphite lube where the bare metal parts mate together. So no they are not completely painted black. It just looks that way.

Great job! I'm in the middle of finishing mine too. Here's a dumb question. What is the plate attached to the crossmember that (what looks like) a vice grip is resting on? I've seen circular ones on MBs before but I never knew what it is or what it's for.

I was thinking maybe a mount plate for a machine gun?

It's 1/2 of a machine gun mount. Someone cut it in half ar some point (not me)
I own a slightly hacked up GPW frame that I am putting back together to accommodate a civilian CJ2A body.
Not cool for some people but good enough for me.

Kids are back in school. I will be building again soon.
