    1928 Willys Overland Knight Truck

    Now, I don't care all that much about this particular truck, but I do find it very interesting that this engine looks a lot like an Lhead.

    I understand the engines in the Willys Whippets (et al?) are basically the WWII Go-Devil in all the ways that matter.

    Thats a cool truck. I think if I were to pick up a old non-Jeep Willys, I would find an old sleeve valve engine just for the novelty factor

    The Go-Devil was developed in the late 30's as an improved version of the Willys l4 dating back to the late 20's. I know it had an better oiling system, as in it *had* an oiling system, compared to the earlier version. Not sure what else was changed.
