648438     Bolt, hex. washer hd. 5/16" - 10 x 5/8" (Acme)     
648439    Clip, tinnerman, 5/16" - 10 

4 ea to mount. 


Thanks Rus and the CJ-3A uses the same part numbers for the side mounted radiators.

CJs don't have the glowing paint. On the military gauges with the special paint you can see where it is due to a yellowed white appearance. The gauges can be disassembled but it not easy to remove and reinstall the ring.

I don't have much information about the Willys Utility line of vehicles, but with those casting numbers I'd say that the engine is close to, but no later than 1949.

I'd say that engine serial number is from about 1949 or so. The casting number and other cast characters from the driver and passenger sides, down low, near the rear would help to date it.
Check out the Norton Young Willys-Overland Production Figures over on the CJ-3B Page.
This shows that Willys did use an "SW" designation.

The Great Willys Picnic, Show and Swap Meet
Sunday, June 14, 2020 from 9 am - 4 pm at the Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern Railroad
located in Kempton, Pennsylvania

It's time to plan for the 21st annual Great Willys Picnic, Car Show and Swap Meet, the largest Willys event in the Northeast. All vehicles are welcome: stock, modified, projects, CJs, Wagons, Trucks, Jeepsters, Military, Cars and even GPWs! Pre-1970 Willys vehicles are eligible to win door prizes and great Raffles are available for everyone. The Jeep Field is open for showing all more modern Jeeps. There is plenty of space for selling your spare parts in the swap meet area. Bring your Willys memorabilia and interesting parts for show and tell. Be sure to arrive early to have enough time to see all the Jeeps before the door prize winners are announced at 3:00 PM. Bring your own picnic lunch or purchase food at the refreshment stand. This event goes on Rain or Shine.

The Picnic will be held on the grounds of the Wanamaker, Kempton Southern Railroad
located in the scenic village of Kempton, Pennsylvania. This is a great setting to display our classic Willys vehicles, as well as entertainment for the entire family. Also on-site is the Schuykill & Lehigh Model Railroad Club's HO model train display.

As always The Willys Picnic, Show and Swap is free. Plan to take the optional train ride for a very reasonable fee. Click here for directions to the RR

Be sure to check for fuel in the engine oil.


What is the engine serial number?

The mounting brackets look original, as does the arm. I'm not sure what I was seeing before. I don't think the mirror head is original. All these items would have been black originally.

I think not original on the mirror and arm, they don't look right and they would have been black originally.

There was a short period of time when the hood blocks were narrow spacing but symmetrical from the center.
