Wheelin at Bridgeport OHV
« on: September 26, 2018, 02:20:34 PM »
Hey, I just wanted to share a video of a recentish trip I took with the Willys. I have had several shakedown runs and I figured it was time to see what I could do with it. It was incredibly muddy (like wheelin in play-doh) and for the first time I wished I had a bit more power going up muddy hills. Starting to get bad ideas of an engine swap.

Has anyone here swapped in a 2.3l ford engine or 4.3l chevy engine?

Here's a link to my video.
I'm the reason they invented idiot lights.

Shane,  To answer your question yes I have installed a Pinto engine in my '52 M-38.  I know there are others.  Novak supplied most of the parts for my conversion.  My Jeep came to me with out an engine.  After I started with the Pinto I found a Chevy 4 cyl. and three original Willys engines.  Novak is easy to work with and knowledgeable.
