    Attempt to make some progress on the tub. I'll grind off the slag and what not later on.

    Removed the MC and dropped the T84/D18. Holding off on body work as long as I can. I have a leak coming from the pto cover so I'm picking up something to fix it.....

    Started to clean up the winch. It's a Koenig C-100. It's missing the mounting bracket and lever. I did a little test fitting with the pto and everything should clear the exhaust and axle fine.

    Got the grill stripped down and separated the t84/d18.

    The T84 is from a slat grill Jeep. Date code C17-42 which translates to March 17, 1942

    Here is the D-18 main shaft gear. note the half F-script stamp.

    So I found whats left of the front countershaft trust washer in the bottom of the t84 and we got some countershaft gear carnage. Overall I guess the transmission guts are in pretty good shape for being 75 yrs old.

    Awhile back I did some measuring before the tub and all was removed; planned on staying with 750-16 but was gonna go with ndt's and combat wheels.

    GPW fender clearance with 750-16

    ~ 5 1/2 inches to top of front fender

    ~ 5/8 to 11/16 clearance between tire and leaf spring.

    ~ 2 1/2 inches tire to tub right rear behind passenger

    ~ 7 15/16 inches clearance to top of rear wheel well

    Got the d18 tore down and the intermediate shaft is shot (as I suspected). I plan on driving this unit when it's done quite a bit and would like to keep downtime to a minimum. So my question is go with a Novak intermediate shaft or is there someone else I should take a look at?
    *The intermediate shaft is 3/4

    Started cleaning up the gas tank. It's not the correct one for this GPW but since they are $400 I'll keep it. The fiberglass was a terrible idea
