    Naaa. Those are the stock clutch "bind up" posts that make sure you can't shift gears if you get twisted up good. BTDT

    My Dad once got stuck against a tree and couldn't shift out of forward and into reverse, had to cut the tree down with a hand ax to escape.

    My most twisted up episode was saved by the overdrive. It was the only thing I managed to get into neutral. I was so twisted up it killed the 225. McKelvey Lake trail, late 60's. Way before it was "found".

    I was twisted and stuck in gear a couple years ago in Colorado. Hitting the shifter with the palm of my hand I broke the threaded part with the ball off. I had to tape a rag to the top of the shifter for the last couple days there.

    Good chance to experiment with a hacksaw blade and some kitchen counter heat-treating and tempering.

    I'm trying to ID what engine is in this 1966 CJ5 Tuxedo Park Mark IV. These are pics/video sent to me by the owner. It's located a couple hours away and I may take a drive to go look at it. When I asked the owner she said it was a "AMC V6." I'm assuming it's a Buick, but it doesn't look like a stock 225 to me (but nothing on this Jeep looks stock).

    If it's a 225, you'll need to look at the casting numbers to confirm. The technical library here has a list of casting numbers for the Jeep/Buick V6s.

    Lots else is different from a '66 with a V6. Core support/grill and radiator have been changed. Brake booster indicates suspended pedals, which are not original. Power steering was first available from the factory in 1972. A '66 V6 would have had the oil bath air cleaner http://www.earlycj5.com/xf_cj5/index.php?threads/125390/ Valve covers look wrong for a 225. Distributor position is right for a Buick V6, but it could be a later version.

    From the valve covers it looks like a 70's vintage Buick 231 V6 (a descendant and bolt in replacement for the 225 Dauntless). Normally a 231 would have an HEI distributor. With the red cap and lack of vacuum advance it might be an aftermarket Mallory. If that's the case it's probably an even fire 231.

    Tim is right about several non-original mods with power brakes and suspended pedals, 1972 and up grill, and power steering.

    Yep .....It could be a 231 , certainly not OEM , though . one way of quick ID is if it has a freeze plug on the front of the DS head , behind the PS pump. No way of truly telling without finding a block casting # . I hope you get it for a good price . Appears to have a lot of rust.

    In pictures it doesn't look super rusty. Just dirty and I think the original color was Indian Ceramic (kind of a pink-red color) that was painted over a couple times. I wouldn't want to pay more than $3800 for it.

    The current owner sent me a video of it running (if that helps):

    Okay gear heads, I need some help identifying this steering housing assembly. I don't think it is original. I know the tires and rims are not. I'm assuming the previous owner changed out the steering to a beefier system to handle the larger tires?

    Thanks!

    That is a Saginaw steering conversion, a common and very desirable upgrade. The previous owner did the right thing if it was done correctly. There are many threads and posts about it.
