DJ-6 Work Begin
I finally had time to start to work on my project…after 5 years!
I took us 4 hours to get the heart of the beast out of it!
First we removed any cable/wire/link attached to the engine.
Second step was the removal of the front grill with the radiator and radiator rod support.
Then we unscrewed the bell housing and get the engine out…
It look scary like this…we just need to add some car’s movie like eyes to get an Halloween ornament!
Universal Jeep on Farm
Here is a fold out about the all-purpose Universal Jeep on farm.
It is not dated but it must be earlier than 1949 since only CJ-2A or MB are illustrated.
I really like the “9 reasons why the “Jeep” can do it all!” at the end.
Concept Jeep II 1977
What do you think about this Concept Jeep II in 1977?
I think it look like to an MB more than a CJ-5. It’s a flat fenders with 9 slots front grill…
A Report on the Universal Jeep in Conservation
Here is my latest brochure. It is not dated but I do believe that it should be around 1947. There is a lot of CJ-2A and I think there is also the Agri-Jeep since some pics has the word “jeep” stamped on the hood. I never saw a real one and I don’t know if it exist. Some pics may have been altered. Yep! Even in that time they were able to “photoshop” their pics. The brochure is in good condition but someone (a kid probably) wrote the name “john” on some pages.
I really like the jeep on page 21 of the brochure. It’s look like a CJ-2A with a strange cab. The word “jeep” is stamped on the hood and the grill has 9 slots. What do you think about it?
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.

Versatile Jeep Willys
I don’t remember where I found those pdf manual but they are pretty neat! I think it was on www.thecj2apage.com but I’m not sure. If you know where they are originated from let me know so I can give the credits to them.
They are big so it take time to open.
I’m always surprised when I saw how many things that the Jeep can do with the proper tools or attachment!
In the Jeep Trucks manual, there is more details about the
Dump-o-Matic bed and a lot of other great stuff;
Too many attachments to list them all so check all of them here in The Jeep in Agriculture manual:
The Jeep in Agriculture
This one is my favorite! Air Compressor, fire apparatus, Jeep-A-Trench and many more:
The Jeep in Industry
