I found a bare Newgren lift frame in an old for sale ad without the cylinder, tank, valve, or slip-on lift arms.  The pivots are free and it will work with the clevis parts I previously bought.  I will need some minor repairs and I need make all three lift arms for it and retrofit a hydraulic cylinder but I am excited that I found one.  I go pick it up in a couple weeks; super excited that the owner never sold the parts as they were listed a year and a half ago.

Still no luck on the PTO pulley but I will keep searching.  I think after I find that I will have all the "obscure" stuff and can get to the mundane parts like the radiator and fuel tank.

I don't know when I will get more pictures to make this thread interesting.  For now I guess it is just a chronology of finding parts and pieces.

Found a second King-Seeley single-speed governor, bought an NOS Harrison underdash heater switch, and a chain clutch control which should help with front PTO shaft clearance.  The garage attic is getting full.  Time to actually get a few of the "necessary" pieces to get the engine running (gas tank, radiator).

Once the parts start falling into place the momentum can really take over!  Nice work sourcing parts!

Nice work sourcing parts!

I can thank the COVID-19 for this.  Only useful thing it did was put me in front of the computer all day, every day so I can keep up with Craigslist, auctions, board classifieds, etc.  On slower days one screen has these going and normal work on the other.  Normally I would not be in front of the computer this much, maybe 25% of the time.

Found an M606 ventilating windshield frame that needs work and snagged the dually adapters on the CJ2A page that need repairs.  I guess if I go dual rear I will need another pair of wheels, and of course tires.  Hmm.  Then still that pesky need for a -3B or early -5 D44 for the limited slip I bought.

I think it is time for a WTB add for a radiator and shroud.  I really cannot stomach new prices on those; I thought about the Champion but there is something about it I just don't like.

My WTB post on the 2A board netted a radiator and shroud last week.  Once it shows up tomorrow I can take it in to have it evaluated to see if it is any good or if it needs to be re-cored.

So it looks like I will have a legit governor on this thing; somehow I recently managed to snag not one but two Monarch governors.  One has the disconnecting pulley and the other does not (not even set up for it) but they are both variable speed governors.  Oh, and an windshield mirror bracket!  Have yet to do anything with the radiator or any of these parts...this is the most boring build thread ever.

Pictures of the two Monarch governors.  Trying to do some research on the one without the disconnecting pulley but information is nearly non-existent for anything about these.

Seeing your posts makes me want to start acquiring governors / PTO's, etc!

So I have a bit of a problem leaving things "stock."  Whatever vehicle project I get I have to find all the "cool" little things to go with it.  I did it with my Nissan, I have a similarly neat pile of original or period accessory parts for my '69 Blazer, and now this Jeep.  The problem is I take forever to get around to the actual project.  The hunt for parts is so much fun!

Wow, nice collection......!!!

Do you have a PTO shield for the rear gearbox? I'd like to adapt one from a tractor, if that is feasible, as they are so much easier to find...pictures maybe?

I do have a good one buried in the garage attic somewhere but I do have a number of pictures of an NOS one I can email you.  Shoot me a PM with your email address and I can send them to you.
