Looks like you're doing a quality job, I'm very impressed. You're very fortunate to have so many F-marked parts since they're really hard to find on the loose. Isn't it funny how so many of them are marked in places you'd almost never see? I think when you're done you're going to have one swell GPW. Good job.
Thanks, Tom. Yes, I find it fascinating how everything is marked with an "F." As you say, they are located in places where they would never be seen until the vehicle is disassembled. Today I was cleaning my steering knuckles and I wasn't really looking for any "F" marks, since I know my axle housings are Willys. However, upon bead blasting the knuckles this was revealed:
This is a really small mark...about an 1/8" tall. Every time I see one now I find myself wondering where all the "F" stamps have gone. The above is on a machined surface, so someone would have had to stamp it later I would think. Somehow this knuckle migrated to the extra Willys axle I had.
Thanks again for the comments. I appreciate it!
