: I bought a jeep on e-bay a while back, thinking I would use it for parts, but as I look at the things that are on it, it becomes more important as it is,as it has never been never taken apart. I am now only trying to just remove the grease without taking it down any further. Any good grease removers or is it just the same ole elbow grease to remove the 60 year old stuff? Any new products out their? This Jeep is in good mech. shape just needs a good cleaning and a rattle can. This jeep may be of historical value and I want to keep it as close to the vehicle it was in it's day.
THANKS GUYS, I truely appreciate your responses, as you can see I made all the right calls and got the Jeep along on it's way?!!!!! (maybe not all the right calls)just ask my wife! I have painted the drive train and frame and looks good, the stink is now managable. I will now work on the "Willys" points program as opportunity presents itself.Wish me luck and always ask yourself, Will this work for me?(I think I could have planned this stage better)and what is the down side,and what will it cost me on the home front. Having read everything on this page and analyzed all the problems mechanicly there is the component that is the personal one and at the end of the day we can all appreiciate the work and time involved in a jeep but it may not be same program as your spouse,.My wife is as understanding as they get and has a sense of humor, she likes to make a post for her constituency (wives, girlfreinds ect..)and bring out the other side of the project. be ready for my next folly, I'm sure she will have something to say about it.
