    Scout car engine trouble.

    Made a lot of progress today. I temporally capped the brake booster line, and that did the trick! Turns out, booster had a leak, and that was causing the last 2 cylinders to get leaned out and not run. I completely over looked this a few times... I am having a problem getting the manifold gasket...

    Scout car engine trouble.

    The firing order should be correct, I checked it twice. Going to check the vacuum lines, one in particular going to the brake booster that I am starting to suspect (the only obvious thing I have overlooked). The engine is a Hercules JXD. Looking forward to hearing back

    Scout car engine trouble.

    I have been asking around about this issue I am having with my scout car, and I am hoping I can find the answer here. My scout starts up and runs smooth, but the 2 most rear cylinders (the 2 closest to the firewall) are dead. I have a good strong blue spark on all new plugs, timed correctly...

    Dodge WC54 transmission swap.

    The transmission in my WC-54 is pretty worn out. I am not the only one who drives the truck, and some of the family has not fully grasped the art of double clutching... My question is, is it possible to take the transmission out of a Dodge M-37 and use that? I will keep my old transmission and...

    Scout car water pump.

    The water pump case on my scout car cracked today while attempting to pull the impeller off. Does anyone have a line on where I can get another one? I have the earlier style open kind, with the packing nut. Or is there a credible cast iron welder that anyone knows of that would be able to take a...

    Clutch_Transmission Issues

    I'm using just a 90 weight gear oil. Would it be worth looking at the transmission for wear internally?

    Burma Jeep, Ford GTB, G622

    I know this thread is somewhat dated, however I just recently purchased a Burma Jeep (Bomb Carrier). The vehicle is mostly complete, no seats of tool box. I am hoping I can fabricate what is missing. If anyone has any specs, photos or manuals they are willing to share it would be much...

    Hauling truck from Post Falls, Idaho.

    Just thought I would reach out here first. I bought a Ford GTB (Burma Jeep) in Post Falls, Idaho, and need to get it shipped up to MN. I can specify the location and address to whoever may be interested and or able to haul the truck. Weight is around 7,000 pounds, truck does not run but should...

    Clutch_Transmission Issues

    Anybody have any experience with the following. On my WC-54 I am able to upshift through the gears with no issues. I am unable to downshift, even with double clutching, gears just grind so to avoid any damage I can only down shift, 3 to 2 or 4-3 when I am at rest or moving very slowly. I am a...

    Scout car information needed.

    Hello all, I am going through the front axle on my scout car, and I would like to rebuild most of it while I have it apart. My question is, What are the seals for the axle, and where is their location. Before I tore down the front axle, it looked like I had some heavy grease or possible oil...

    Oil pressure drops when engine warms up.

    I am using a mechanical guage. I will recheck oil pressure with another and see where she's at. I agree, a full rebuild would only make sense, if the engine is indeed worn out. As stated, better to have a shop do the work.

    Oil pressure drops when engine warms up.

    I will try another gauge to just be sure. How extensive of a rebuild should I preform. Also, since rebuilding is not a viable option at the moment, could any damage be caused by continuing to run the engine.

    Oil pressure drops when engine warms up.

    I just got my WC-54 put back together, and I have been having a problem with the oil pressure. I did not have the engine rebuilt, as I was informed it checked out OK by the previous owner. The truck burns a little oil, but nothing too bad, so I know the engine has some wear on it. Still has...

    Scout car clutch problems.

    The truck does not get much use, maybe once a year because of all the problems I have been having. I fixed all of them now though, expect this one. So, roughly how much play do I want in the clutch when the pedal is pressed? And what is the best way to adjust the clutch?

    Scout car clutch problems.

    Hey all, So, I have been getting the Scout all tuned up for a upcoming car show, and I keep running into the same problem. When the engine gets to operating temp, the clutch does not want to stop spinning. This problems only seems to happen when trying to go from neutral into gear. When the...

    1942 WC-54 Restoration

    Does anyone have a image they could forward me of the bracket that holds the Passenger seat to the body for a WC-54? I have two brackets which are identical. They fit the drivers seat, however the passenger seat has a bar the seat attaches to. I am hoping if I can see what it looks like I can...

    Looking for any tips or tricks to replacing door glass in a WC-54. I have removed the handles and inside panel. I presume the glass needs to come out through the top, however I thought I would see if anyone with previous experience would weigh in. thanks,

    WC-54 - Restoration

    I am in the process of restoring a WC-54. On the passenger side of the vehicle there is a strip of wood, about 4ft by 3in. mounted above the rear wheel forward. I have looked at multiple photos of completed WC-54 and in only one do I see this wood strip. Can anyone tell me what this is for...
