Hi,

Sadly missing the most difficult to get parts. Still, you'll get there in the end.

Nice script Willys, also tough to get the correct parts for, I have a 1941, it took five years to find the full set of correct K-H one piece wheels... (-:

Best Regards,

Adrian

Hi Mercian, Good Slat !

This Slat is mine.I have 3 K-H Wheels. The 2 others wheels are in 4 1/2 inches for CJ2A.
For the first photo, it's a second slat body behind the frame of the BSA.

Hi, Godevil

the dimension indicated (top of forks to top of nut) on my bike is 7.25 inches, or 18.4 cm. The tube for the forks is slightly shorter (6 or 7 mm), so the fork tube is around 17.7 cm, or 7 inches.

A+

How do I identify the jeep wheels. I have a stack of about 8.
The wheels for the prototype jeeps, and early production 1941 to early 1942 jeeps were a one piece construction, and these are hard to find because few were made, and they were replaced by later wheels.

The ones used in jeep production from early 42 to end of production in 45, and on the jeep trailers, were a two piece construction, which allows the wheels to separated into two parts to take the tyres off without special tools in the field. These are more common than early one piece, but still rare because they were relatively fragile. This meant they often don't survive well, and that they were replaced with a different type of one piece wheel on civilian and miltary jeeps after 45.

Two piece 'Combat Rims' are the easiest to spot, the one piece is harder because there are many similar post war ones.

After that brief introduction, here is a site telling you almost everything you need to know. If you still have doubts after that, send pictures to Godevil or myself, we'll be glad to help.

Thanks gentlemen,
I have not looked at the wheels in a while.
If I remember correctly, all of my wheels are one piece except one.
4 or 5 of my wheels came to me on my 1963 International Scout when I purchased it in the 1980s.
I suspect all of the one piece wheels that I have are post war.
I'll look this week and take some photos.
Thanks,
Chris

Hi, Godevil.

This is one question I wish I could help with, but I can't.

I have exactly the same problem, I'm trying to find a correct bottom bracket, but can't find details of what it should be. Moreover, BSA bottom bracet searches brings up details of thousands of modern bb cartridges, because they use BSA threads!

I will continue looking, if I find the information, I'll put it here, please do the same for me if you come across it. The only other option I have at the moment is to dismantle one of my other parabike's bb's to look, but the ball bearings get everywhere (-:

Have a Good Weekend,

Adrian
