    Well, I finally got the whole thing put together -- this time with the correct head gasket --- and I fired up the rebuilt F134 for the first time.

    What a sweet sound when that thing kicked over and started running. As soon as I get the body tub back on it I'll have a "brand new" 1954 or 1962 CJ3B. (depends on whether you count the frame or the body tub).

    As of this time it is going to be Monterrey Mist (2004 Thunderbird color).

    Everything came together on this engine so well I started on the next one - it is now disassembled and ready to go in for a bore and crankshaft work. This one will go in a '65 Tuxedo Park.

    Ditto on the sound. A friend of mine bought his 63 CJ5 because "it sounds like the ones on M*A*S*H." :D

    Billy real tractor motors are GREEN have 2 cylinders and pop when they fire and when they get put under heavy loads they sound like a hammer beating the pi$$ out of something.

    If this link works this is what a real tractor motor sounds like.

    The last bit of the wav file will let you hear the start of the hammering sound I mentioned as the clutch is let out.
