Thanks for all the encouragement. I’m working out of a remote garage and lots of OT lately, lining up hoist to pull the engine within the next week. Soon as I do I will post some more pix.
Stay tuned!

Ok here’s something that should be the FIRST thing all you “old timers” will tell anyone “like me” who is new to the old jeeps. 
THE LEFT SIDE WHEEL STUDS ARE LEFT HAND THREAD!!!
Lol, only rounded one and one stud on the left rear is right hand thread! Doh! Shocked

Been there, done that LOL!  Look for the “L” or “R”  on the stud, kind of hard to see sometimes.

Interesting that your's were mixed on the same hub! I have 3 right hand hubs and one left.

Never take it to a tire shop without supervision!

The original left hand lug nuts have a little notch between the flats....not sure about the reproductions...

Got all the lug nuts off, will standardize the one oddball at some point down the road. Big milestone, engine is out, temperature here getting cold so things will be slowing down

Pulled the head off today, aft cylinder looks like water damage, I think that’s the seized piston, the head gasket doesn’t look blown so ...? Won’t budge. Also have difficulty getting the distributer to move, remove!
