    That shop is too clean! My shop looks like a bomb went off. I did organize my parts for my M37 project. At that point I realized I had about 6 exhaust hangers. Guess I forgot I had some. Then a buddy brought me his leftovers from his M37 project and I have more exhaust hangers.

    The number is 1MB41886. I don't know squat about these, I guessed the MB 41 made it a WW2. I do know it has the single pulley setup from a CJ2A which I am thinking of swappimg with the origional.

    Need one? I think the block will be okay. Head is cracked I am pretty sure. I am not going to use it. (it has the timing chain and GPW cast into the side.)
