I have completed the rebuild of my original 1958 Navy 3B engine. It is running Sooo Sweet thanks to all of you who contributed info and specs on the Carb, and compression ratios. I tried to find my original posting, but could not so I'm starting a new one. I drove it about 45 miles on the county roads around my Durango Colorado home this weekend. It ran like a 3B sewing machine. My original concern was to make it run at altitude, and thanks to the carb detail I received, it is build with the correct metering rod & jet for an "SA" Carter. It has the first step lean combination. I will have to wait until late June to get up to the 10,000' plus jeep trails however.
This is to say THANK YOU GUYS FOR THE HELP!! I'll contribute some pictures when I get some worthy. I plan to go to Canyon Lands Utah at the end of April for a Men's Retreat. That will be it's first chance to work out it's "Garage Cramps"

I do have some old pictures, but I am in the middle of installing a complete new wiring harness. When I get that done, I'll get some new pictures that will be more representative of my finished project.
JUST IN TIME FOR SPRING & SUMMER!!!

Here are a couple of current Pic's of my 58-3B, ready for my trip to Canyon Lands Utah in a couple of weeks. It is now running very well, is all street legal, and is sporting a brand new set of "Collector Plates". I drove it to the gas station and filled it up yesterday, so now I can calculate mileage on my new engine.

Nice job! The Jeep has a great simple, tough look to it.

Are the side steps original? If not, what is their source? I have only seen available the ones with the poke-a-dot treads.
Regards,
Capt. Joe

Yes the steps were on the Jeep when I bought it 20 years ago. Although they are a little straighter now. I have tried to keep this as a simple safe daily driver. It is a Navy Jeep with the brass plate, and all the numbers match. I had already bought and installed Rancho springs, 11" brakes, and converted to manual Saginaw steering before I learned that there were not that many Navy CJ3B Jeeps out there.
After I took these Pic's this morning, I put about 100 miles on it. I took it up to the snow at about 9000 ft. It sure drives nice, but it is still running too rich with the first lean metering rod for a 938SA.
