[MV] Jeep flywheel

Tue, 5 Jan 1999 10:11:21 EST

I have a question about a jeep flywheel. Last weekend was to be the time I
was to start the project jeep I bought a year ago. It is a 1945 MB that is a
Heinz 57. It has a GPW transmission, transfer gear and bell housing. It had
been converted to 12 V when I bought it. When we hooked up the starter switch
and tried to start it the starter spun but didn't turn the engine. I tried
another starter with the same results.
I then moved the starter to another jeep and it worked fine. I then counted
the number of teeth in the ring gear on the 45 and there was 123. The number
of teeth was 97. I went out to a jeep dealer and bough a new flywheel and
ring gear and checked the number of teeth and it has 123.

My question: Which jeep used a ring gear with 123 teeth.
