Parts Peculiar to Perkins Diesel Jeep
I would like to thank Eric Fuller for sharing with us a pdf copy of the Parts Peculiar to Perkins Diesel Jeep manual for the models CJ-5 and CJ-6. The manual was issued in 1964 from Kaiser Jeep Corporation.
Here it is.
Perkins engine Oil Dipstick
I never paid attention to it but the manual show the dipstick on the right side of the engine but on a Perkins Diesel Jeep, it’s on the left side.
Here is pics showing it.
The dipstick measure around 10″3/4. From the end tips to the tap it measure 8″.
The max oil is at 3/4″ and the min look like at the end of the tips.
Hope this help.
