In applications where cars are not common, such as your customer's Henry J, it is a good idea to contact the club. Start with the Kaiser Frazer Club, they have a website. The 1st person youtalk to may not be helpful, or able to assist but it's a start at a network that may end with a club member that is a Henry J/Willys expert.

I believe the 161 6 cyl is a Willys engine. Hemmings has several vendors specializing in Willys and of course there are the "generalists" such as Egge. However, Egge is not perfect. Some members have had quality issues, others have had a good experience.
