64' CJ6 with factory Perkins
« on: December 16, 2013, 01:03:38 PM »
Hey folks, I just joined and wanted to share what I've been working on...but very slowly. I bought it in early 2011 in Vermont.


This CJ6 comes with a factory Perkins 4.192 diesel.


It's more or less unmolested. It came with all of the parts specific to the motor including tags and data plates.

Very cool. I didn't know you could get a Jeep of any type with a factory diesel...especially during the CJ-6 era. Keep the pics and progress coming.

I think I know the guy you got that from. Was his name Wayne? If so, that is where I got the tub from for my '53.

Thanks Ryan

Yes, I understand that Kaiser offered the Perkins from 1955 up to the mid 60's. The records are quite sketchy but from the best I can gather, mine is a 63 or 64. They sold very few Perkins equipped jeeps.

Here are the glow plug and stop controls.


A closer view of the injector pump side of the motor.


And the lift pump (passenger) side with fender and both batteries removed.


Thank you for your interest!

Yes Nate, that would be Wayne� ::)

The price was right and I'm a sucker for punishment. Far as I can tell, it wasn't run since the 80's. It broke the #2 rod and this happened� :'(

Oooohhhh. thats not good! If you need a good machine shop, I know one that has fixed worst things than that.

I see you are in Dublin. Do you go to the antique engine show and swap meet there in September?

Nate, I'm embarrassed to say I haven't been to that show and it's only about one mile away from me!

The pic above is my backup motor which came with the jeep. I have saved the chunk which blew out of the side just in case!

But I did find this� 8-)

For your information Ryan, Diesel jeep was rare. Mainly made during the Kayser-Willys era.

This one should be a late 1963 or early 1964.

So I did manage to slowly get the replacement Perkins up to snuff. The crank spins freely and the replacement engine came with a big box of parts like a rebuilt injector pump, a set of injectors, Lucas starter parts. All the rest of the trim is there like the lift pump, high pressure fuel lines, oil filter housing, fuel filter housing, water inlet and outlet.

Rebuilt injector pump.....



The injectors....



Checking the fitting of the pump

Now that's a historical piece.  How cool would it be to get it going again!  Please keep us updated.

It actually runs!  Gawd, am I glad that's in Arizona, otherwise you'd be paying me back for a certain lunch date we had a few years back.  :-)

I reached outa couple of weeks ago to that fella but never got a response. If the body is in very good shape I think it would be a fair asking price. Looks like a PTO winch up front too.

Sounds like there a problem with the transfer case.

The smoke could caused by something as simple as a bad injector or dirty filters.

This is when I was getting the trim together on the lift pump (passenger's side) of engine....the grey lines on the right are for lubrication. New copper crush washers installed to form 'joints'. The rebuilt lift pump installed on left.



Intake and igniter installed:
