Hi everyone , finally got around to doing this . Thought I should share as I gained a lot of good info here. I included a link to a local jeep site for pics . If this is not acceptable i have no problem removing it to make it right. Dpecided i should start posting my latest project. I bought this a few years ago from a local guy. He had imported it from Washington state. It has from all the research i have done ,has the rare T -18 close ratio transmission. The body is pretty badly rusted. I am working on a replacement from a 1968. Someone had ,years ago installed a Vega steering box and column . The v-6 is the stock dauntless 225 odd fire and an Offenhauser intake and valve covers. I must say it pulls very well and is fun to drive . It also has the good dana offset flanged 44 with a tightened traclok with 3.73's . My goal is to restore to as original as possible. A year I had aquired a 1968 cj5 v-6. With a partially repaired tub. i came with a Kelly hard top. The jeep was complete with all the odd and ends. I decided to sell off what I didn't need of the 68 as i felt the 71 was more special. the 68 was already in pieces anyway. I ended up getting most of the stufff the 71 was missing. Stock exhaust manifolds and stock streering. The bottom picture is of the 68 chassis. So as the jeep sits now ,I replaced the crappy Vega column and steering with the stock ROSS box and bellcrank setup. Stock manifolds and exhaust . Stock intake and 2 barrel carb. Stock drum e brake. Stock rims. As it sits now see bottom pic. Please see the link [/URL][/IMG] This is how it looks now http://www.bcjeepclub.ca/index.php?topic=33220.0. Easy to sign up as a member...
