1946 CJ2A jalopy with stock drivetrain

I no longer use Photbucket, so I have not been able to post pictures. So I never started a thread. But I loaded a video on Youtube. Even better, yay. I bought this rusty but complete ‘46 CJ2A 2 weeks ago. It originally was owned by South County Farm in S. Kingston, RI from 1946-2017 where it spent its life as a tractor. Then it passed through two guys before me. The seller claimed “it ran last summer”, which usually means he’s never heard it run... I ripped out all of the corroded stock wiring. After doing a complete tuneup, and using a powerprobe to start it, it fired up super easy. I then added a starter solenoid and added a BlueSea 6 circuit fuse block and wired up a key switch. I have a Group 35 12v battery. I also have a 10si alternator and Speedway 5/8 pulley. I ordered a bunch of parts to make it driveable. I have a new mastercylinder and brake hose and wheel cylinders on the way. But my friend and I still test drove it without brakes around the parking lot.
