So, I am guessing that when they converted the jeep over, they changed the NOM data plate? Wouldn’t a 1944 WW2 jeep have the stamped data plate? Nathan

Your distributor is a later Autolite unit with internal coil. Get the serial numbers from the Autolite components and we should be able to determine the date(s) they were manufactured.

Does anyone know how difficult it is to locate them? Sorry about the confusion. Andrew and I are trying to track down the correct books for this jeep. I think he found one of them, but I’m not sure which one he found.
I am not sure who I should direct this question to, but I have been kind of curious as to the generator that is mounted between the driver and passenger seat. Would a jeep with a fording kit need to have a sealed or waterproof generator? I am guessing that a generator like the one Mark has in his pictures would not work.
