I really think the mounted map reading torch was an addition from the Indian Army but definitely post WWII.

Also regarding ignition switch, Key type of switches are correct for a GPW from January 1942 to January 1943. Keyed and Toggle type used by Ford are unique to GPW and GTB.

Ignition switch is keyed with H-700 (marked) key. The bezel has 16 serrations and F stamped on the body of the switch.

Rejo,
It is not a map reading torch!
That is a WWII instrument light for mortar/artillery sight.
There is kit below with a same light instrument for mortar sight is for sale at http://www.bmgparts.com/mortar.html
I happen to have one these, which I plan to my jeep in a similar way when it gets done. The rotary switch on the top is the on/off switch and it also regulates the brightness of the bulb. It runs on 2 'D' size batteries.
Not factory correct, but a nice, period correct, accessory.

Mortar

I would have never guessed that one. I suppose these would be from the Indian Army ? and how sure are you that they are from WWII era. Can you please share a photo of yours and how you got it

Rejo,
The instrument lights were used on 60mm and 81mm mortars in WWII.
I picked up mine on eBay a couple of years back. Will dig it out tomorrow and post details and photographs.

More info on the mortars can be found here Olive Drab 60mm Mortars
Here is a picture of a 60mm mortar on a WWII jeep.

Default Jeep CJ (Civilian Jeep) -- a farm implement

Impressed by the Willys Jeep's performance in the second world war,
American soldiers returning to their pre-war farming occupation in the USA,
motivated Willys-Overland Motors to reposition its little workhorse 4x4 truck
into a low-cost, all-purpose farm vehicle.

The Jeep was convenient around the farm to pull a plough or drag a harrow tiller,
run a saw(see pic) or thresher, drill post holes and also take the farmer's family to town.

The Power Take Off (PTO) was an accessory available on the original Willys Jeeps.

This is why Jeeps had
  1. the additional "Neutral" position on the little lever (High-Neutral-Low) on the Spicer-18 transfer case.
  2. all those unexplained funny holes on the chassis rear-most transverse member.
  3. the "T" Throttle setting knob on the dashboard -- to set engine rpm when the driver was busy with the PTO-driven farm implements.
Does anybody have other pictures of the PTO in use ?

There were four assemblies (I've shown them in four colors)

1. Shift Unit mounted on transfer case
2. Separate third propeller shaft and universal joints (front and rear propeller shafts to the differentials not shown)
3. Shaft drive assembly for driving farming equipment
4. Pulley drive assembly for driving farm equipment such as threshers

With the 75 bhp Hurricane petrol engine, the standard
6-splined, 1-3/8 inch shaft in the rear PTO unit delivered
35 bhp at the belt pulley.

Photographed from Willys Service manual by me (sorry my scanner's broken down)

@Ram,

Can I request you to post the same post what you have posted here under the 4x4technical section PTO thread. It will be much useful to members interested.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...ators-etc.html (Jeep PTO units (Winches, generators etc))

Anyway I do own a PTO unit for jeep and studying extensively on that front. the best person to talk more about PTO units are Mr.UBS.

The pto picture you have posted, I have the original equipment (rear PTO)in flush picture. Here it is:

An integral part of the Power Take Off Unit (PTO) in civilian jeeps was the Governor mounted on the L Head with the controls on the dashboard. This explains the double crank pulley in Willys civilian jeeps.
I have uploaded some pics of a governor that was fixed on our 1948 CJ2A, along with some diagrams culled from a CJ parts manual.

BTW, can anyone enlighten me on the reason, for the Governor to be continuously connected by a V belt to the engine, after all its just a throttle for continuously maintaining requisite engine RPMs, when in use.
Regards
Perak
