Yea, something doesn't look quite right.
That's the finnish version of a spring-over conversion.


I had to look twice to figure out what was wrong with that picture.

Oh no... Someone had unplugged the carburettor and reinstalled it wrong ... Then tried probably to try to adjust ...
Then a couple of questions. What color is the Steering Gear Box originally? It seems I will have a lot of goods to be ordered for this car ... If some of the readers who is willing to help me that, I would be grateful.

Steering box was painted black, and the pitman arm was unfinished grey steel.
Mine looked to be that way, and the NOS parts that I had bought were the same.

As Dan has said. Also, the master cylinder was painted black as well. Note, new master cylinders have the outlet port in a slightly different position, rotated 90. So you may have to make a new brake line if you replace it. Just a minor situation.

-Oil Line, Flexible, Cylinder Head to Tee
-Gasket, Rocker Cover
-Intake Manifold Gasket
-Rear axle shaft seals
-Transmission ans transfer case seals

Is there any good idea where to order? (It's quite expensive to order from many places to Finland) :/

Don't replace the oil hose from the block to the head with another rubber hose.
Make up a hard line.

Looking good.

Looks like your rubber tie rod end covers are missing.
I bought NOS rubbers as shown in this photo from

Thanks again for the tip jeepdan
I tried to find the rear axle shaft and the pinion seals (numbers). I found the numbers in transfercase output seals and ordered it, THANKS this site!!! . It's not easy to order parts when sellers required the Export License (UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE BUREAU OF INDUSTY AND SECURITY) I got this export license when I brought my car to Finland. Now I apparently hawe to ask permission to for all spare parts, as they are on "military vehicle" spare parts. Fortunately, I found a new gas / vacuum pump from Greece This will be a long road ...
