I don't have a flat fender but a 71' and moved to Morgan Hill in August. I have a friend in Gilroy with a 59' that was his grandfathers. I belong to the MTA club and we hit Hollister among others pretty regular. Supposed to go March 23rd.

I'll have to join yall sometime I've been up here for over a year now, and I haven't gone wheeling once Just so many things to do with the house, and then right after replacing a broken leaf spring... the clutch on the willys went

I'v seen I believe an M38 A1 in south Morgan hill off of Montery with a trailer. Looked pretty sweet from the road.

What is the MTA club?

Wow you really put a lot of work into that thing!
If you do decide to do disc brakes, my runs disc'd from a 60's Mustang, so it's still semi vintage.

There's a lot of them out there, as evidence by our recent trip we got quite a few out wheeling! Ping me 10 months from now for info on the Feb 2020 run

Thanks, Mark. Is this a popular swap that I can Google or some crazy customer shit? Yes I realize this is a lazy question since I could just Google, but you mentioned so I'm asking

Good club that actually wheels. Still have to deal with a little Toyota vs. Jeep stuff but all in good fun.

I have a D27 with 4:88's, Lockrite, Chevy disc conversion, new Warn hubs and tie rod flip sitting in my garage if you are interested. Needs TRE's and the drag link is a bit bent.

I have a Ford and a Willy's so I'll skip the Toyota vs Jeep thing completely (:

I think the only part I'd maybe want is the disks... I like the 538 gears I have to try and make up for lack of power. On second thought maybe not a bad idea for parts and such.... I'll PM you

Some random pics from the trip...

















At the 4 corners in Somerset, loaded up and ready to come home



Driving home. For anyone that knows the area, this is through Amador county, wine country, you can see grape vines off to the left. Unusual to have this much snow here, this is probably under 2k feet.

Just browsing the Willys forum section and caught your above trip pics. Just awesome...the spread of stockish vintage rigs and the conditions just gets my mind going! Looks like a great time--thanks for sharing.

Glad you enjoyed. It's pretty cool doing some actual wheeling in these old rigs.

If you've been following the story, the 2a started running like shit towards the end of the snow adventure. No power at all. Hard start. I limped it onto the trailer, into the garage and haven't touched it for like a month now. My best guess was the points/ignition since I didn't touch it at all and who knows how long it'd been since any of that was touched.

So I tore into the distributor. The gap was off, and the oddly the rotor was cracked





I decided to add some modern touches with a Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition.



I also bought their flamethrower coil, part number 40611, its the 3 ohm which is supposedly the right match for the Ignitor on a 4cyl.

So I've got no spark. I've checked wiring, coil is hot, etc.

Is there any way to test the Ignitor? Anyone with experience on these have advice? Maybe their's something stupid I've missed

A friend of mine has Petronix in his ride and was having trouble with it . He called Petronix and they were very helpful in getting his problem solved. Give them a call.

I emailed their support team so we'll see what they have to say.
