Restore and rebuild your Jeep 134-ci 4-cylinder Go Devil and Hurricane engines with help from the foremost expert in the industry!
The famous Willys Go Devil flathead engine was developed in the 1920s, saved a car company in the 1930s, and helped win a war in the 1940s. Along with its cousin, the Hurricane F-head engine introduced in the 1950s, these Willys engines survived three wars and five automotive companies while soldiering on into the 1970s, when it ceased production. With more than four decades of production in cars, trucks, Jeeps, and a multitude of industrial and stationary applications, hundreds of thousands of these venerable engines were produced around the globe. With most of these engines going into Jeep-brand vehicles, it gave rise to the famous phrase "the sun never sets on the mighty Jeep." A favorite of military restorers and backyard mechanics, these engines are a great project to rebuild at home. Recent advances in technology have also lent a new life to tired engines needing to be rebuilt.
In Jeep Go Devil & Hurricane Engines: How to Rebuild & Modify 1937-1971, noted Jeep expert Rick Pewe delves into the three different versions of the little 134-ci wonder. Machining secrets and parts swapping for enhanced durability and power is explored and explained while upgrades are unveiled for these potent little engines. A full rebuild of three different engine variants along with some common myth-busting discussions will leave readers with the knowledge needed to rebuild their own Willys engine with the help of this in-depth and hands-on book.
