New to the Jeep family and picked up a '68 CJ5 Willys Overland. Needs a little work. 225 dauntless odd fire, SM 420 4-spd, Model 20 Spicer transfer case, Saturn overdrive, Dana 44 Jeep Wagoneer axles, 538 gears and Warren hubs. Current issue is that after it warms up, it stalls out. Sit for a few minutes and you can start back up and go another 1/4 mile or so before repeating the issue. A couple of thoughts that may be causing this.... mechanical fuel pump going bad, coil collapsing, distributor issue?? It does have the Rochester 2 jet, single barrel carburetor on with stock manifod. Thanks in advance for feedback.
I was just about to slap a set of fender well headers on my 66 cj 6 with a 225 and it seems I have heard quite a few folks say they prefer the stock manifolds. I intended to move up to a 4 barrel intake and Holley 390 at the same time. What is everyone's opinion on this matter?
I stumbled onto this forum while researching my 68 Jeepster Commando rebuild. What a great bunch of folks, thanks! I currently have a 225 v6, running good, but stock. I've built and added bumpers, winch, rock sliders etc. so with all that and tools its gained a bit. Also running 33" tires, 4:56 gears with a SM 465 and Dana 20. My dilemma is should I rebuild the 225 (which is my first inclination) or try to find an EF 231? So far my plans for either one would be a stock rebuild but with Comp 252H cam, Offy dual plane intake with EFI and dual exhaust. I want to stick with either the 225 or 231 because I want to just drop one in, and I've been working on this for long enough. I would like more low and mid range power. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Scott
We had a pretty good weekend at the Moonshiners 4x4 swap meet in Puyallup. Picked up a new 12 circuit wiring harness made in the US of A by a company called Rebel Wiring over in Tennessee. Also found a new back seat, some very clean Buick V6 valve covers, and probably the best find of the weekend, a new adjustable roll-around shop stool for $5. Between that and building snowbike wheel kits I haven't spent much time working on the Jeep project. I did get the Spicer 18 assembled on Friday. It went together fairly easy with the help of my Jeep book. I also came to the conclusion that my magnetic base for my dial indicator is garbage. I reassembled the heads tonight, I kept it pretty mild with the porting work. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time to cc the heads. Edited 7 hours ago by 53HiHood
