I have just received the repair estimate for my Willys MB which
stood neglected in Normandy for a tad too long: Gas had
decomposed, and water (rust) had made its way into the gas tank
which I had left only half-full...
The repair estimate from by mechanic in Normandy is (Gulp!)
close to 5,300 French Francs..., including a new gas tank, new
valves, new fuel filter and new battery.
I am not familiar with sources in the US of A for "reasonable"
replacement gas tanks and filler necks, and exhaust/intake
valves & springs... Any lead from you all certified "jeepists"
on the list will be much appreciated...
