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.
Yesterday I went to the Canadian Tire Store and found a discounted parts washer…I couldn’t resist and I bought it! It’s the Canadian tire homemade brand Mastercraft but It look like well build. I paid it 175$. Let me use it and I will tell you how it goes.
After almost three-year on the waiting list the patient is now in the surgery room. I’m excited! The patient will get a heart transplantation and a face-lift. It will get also other minor operation. Hopefully, it will survive. I don’t know how much time the patient will be at the hospital. Be quiet, I will take care of him.
I’m looking how to wire my new AMC radio for my DJ-6 project.
Here is pictures of it with what I’m thinking how it should connect:
I’m sure that the two connectors with white/black/green wires are used for the front/rear speakers. The connectors with the brown/orange/black wires is also easy since it’s written on the nameplate. I would like to be sure for the black connector on the left corner, is it for grounding to the chassis?
I’m wondering if the antenna is OK or not. Should I consider that the radio and the CB are using the same antenna?
Here is my setup to test my CJ5 diesel 1967 jeep motor.
Since the tank fuel was missing, I had to use my imagination;
Why two fuel line? Because a diesel motor is using a fuel return.
I added a “no-return” valve. The PO let it in a box full of parts. I also added a temporary fuel filter.
Here is pictures of a crack that we found on the block after we started the engine. It is around 1″3/4 long.
I asked people hints and some recommend to weld it, to use JB weld, or use Loctite cold weld stuff. I don’t have a lot of money to spend on it. I don’t want to rebuild that engine. I think I will try to drill both end of the crack then trace it with a dremel. I will try the loctite solution.
I started to dismantle the jeep. I think is a good idea to take pictures as much as I can. It should help when I put everything back in place. ( Memory is a faculty that forgets )
Here is a picture of what appears to be an original windshield water tank. Yep! It’s that small plastic bag. Go figure out how to fill it…
I have to say: “RIP 31962!”
Probably made in the end of September 1966. Check the serial information on the cj3b.info website.
I’m not sure if this is an original tag (938202) or not of the wiring harness. Also note that it has two horns.
This is my second blue CJ6 I found. This one and the DJ6 that I planned to restore. It’s literally the same blue. I did some research and I think those jeep was owned by the Quebec government. Especially this one, because it has two large side mirror , two horns, a CB antenna , 4 flashing yellow distress installed on the front fender and on each corner of the hardtop. I will look for a number that could identify it.
“Hi Pascal, the DJ6 was bought many years ago to donate its engine to a CJ5, but it never happened. It apparently spent its life in southern Alberta, probably south of Calgary as it has only one rust spot on the driver’s side. I picked the jeeps up about 70 km north of here. The engine serial # on my DJ6 is 4J418868. The last 2 numbers are kind of hard to read, so it is fairly close to yours which means they are both original engines. The DJ6 paint is raven black. You can post all the pictures you want. If I decide to sell it I will let you know. When spring comes I will probably start fixing it, first the brakes. My rear axle has 2 sets of spring mounts, one a little farther in on the axle that the set that is used. I was talking to an old jeep collector last spring at a car show and he said he remembered reading about this occurring on some of the early series as they used up old stock from discontinued models in this case probably the DJ3. I don’t know if this is true as info on the DJ6 is scarce. I have an owners manual for 1965 CJ and DJ jeeps it is about 83 pages, but does not list any options, the options would be nice to see.”
Here is pictures of his DJ-6:
I was lucky enough to find an 1965 Owner manual and DJ-6 specifications data for year 1965 and 1966. I posted those here:
