I'm ready to have all the mechanical stuff out of the way and get down to body and electrical work. I'll be most thrilled when the rolling chassis and drivetrain is complete

this one may get a hybrid hard/soft camper shell (wagoneer roof for the top with roll down canvas sides. just something to make it alittle different (as if a cummins powered 5.9 isn't different enough) hahah

I expect to see you at the Yukon booth for SEMA 2016.

however amazing that would be (and truly a dream of mine as well) this is not this vehicles purpose. hahah. shooting for an incredibly simple and stout daily driver that gets dirty and well used and is being built as such. however, I do remember seeing a CJ2a named the RatRock there this year (well.. heard about it. not 'saw' hahah) i guess it could be in the same class as that thing.

some guys I work with around the house just finished (and in the process of finishing another) IH Scout II that is SEMA worthy on presentation alone. complete engine and trans swap from mid 00's Tahoe (5.3 4L60 trans) mated to original Dana 300, rebuilt 44s front and rear. shackle reverse. dyna/boom mat everywhere. perfect paint and body work. recaro racing leather heated power seats. power everything. Bluetooth. etc. I'll see if I can snag some pics next time I see it..

I think I just DOT'd my own build thread  :o hahah

I was merely stating that the build isn't perfect.. and neither is this thing. but dang if it doesnt look pretty cool. maybe I just look past the sheetmetal and see a sweet Cummings with 1 tons under it..?  ???

but you're right.. it is a waste of some good Willys parts.

It's cool and all, but I am much more intrigued/excited about your build.

I appreciate it! I'm hoping she starts falling together soon. the mechanical stuff I can make happen.. it's just wiring a fuse panel and mainly the flashers (as dumb as that sounds) that I'd like some I put on (never actually fully wired a vehicle.. only added circuits for lights and such up until now) I semi did my XJ when I swapped in a SBC. but I can't say it 'correc' hahah. im thinking just a standard 21 fuse panel and having all the power come in through a race car master kill switch and 200 amp 12 volt contactor to power the fuse panel. looks like that's my next bit of research.. seeing as to how I've already looked at all the big heavy metal stuff for about 6 months straight. hahah

can only hope you don't look at me the same way. hahah.

really just trying to update the drivetrain.. want to keep the classic look. even through the dash. going with some z series autometer gauges which look pretty dang close to factory.

I'm a little touchy on the Willys Thang myself.  Spent close to 5 years on a 52 cj3 cutting out rust, and realized how hard it is to find straight rust free willys sheet metal. ...even in Az. Of course, they weren't very straight from the factory.
I need to finish that thing now that you gave me a little inspiration ...mine doesn't have a Cummins tho!

the only way he wanted this was if it had a 5.9 in it. lol. we all know these engines will run forever with great reliability and power. he really just wanted to drive the engine around in whatever.. but ran across a killer deal on the 715 (which he's always wanted just bc it looks cool hahah)

It's more art deco than functional, steer skull mounted on the steering wheel makes for difficult maneuvering. I hear ya on the factory sheet metal abuse, but I'm not sure if this was even an original vehicle or a body kit that was modified, either way, the wagladiator build is much cooler, especially with the soft top I always wanted to do to mine. Jealous.

wagladiator. I can dig it.

just waiting to get back home to see about finding or modifying a radiator for it. then the core support can be mounted, water and air plumbed so it can run indefinitely. my dad already has a fuel tank design mocked up, just have to take it to the local CNC guys to have them cut and fold it up.

found a guy parting out a 1st gen with 4" lift and correct downpipe, so I'll get that when I get back from Cali next weekend. with shortening the front shackles down to a reasonable height and putting 4" springs under it, it should pick the front up to where we need it (currently 1.5" low on the front)

I'll have to check when I get back, but I think most of the holes in the firewall are going to be used and/or have block off plates for them. so once the trans crossmember and tcase/support bracket are bolted up the cab can go on.

found a hydro boost setup from a mid 80s 2500 'burb.. so it should be just about perfect with the 1ton axles as well. just get a proportioning valve from the same year model and let it ride. I'll have to get lines made to go from PS pump to hydro to PS box I believe.. but the unit may come with them on it. the only bit of vacuum the truck will need is for the windshield wipers (figure that on out.. hahaha) since I'm hoping it'll have a vintage air setup going in with its own electric control board.

more to come once I actually get back in NC. 

ohh.. and I was able to snag a millermatic 251 off of good ol CL. so I'll be a welding fiend when I get back. hahah

ohh I meant.. hilarious that the wipers run off vacuum. hahah. what can/do I need to run the vacuum pump to/hose out of for the wipers? the old truck had manual brakes so it didn't even have a vacuum assist. I'm guessing it ran straight to the intake manifold maybe..? ive guess just a canister will work, or maybe just a straight line from the vacuum pump to the control manifold mounted on the windshield? thinking of running some soft copper pipe for the air line. always thought that would look cool in there. especially against the dark blue gray he's painting the truck

Just hook the main hose straight to the pump.
Originally, the fuel pump's upper half was a vacuum pump.(not positive kaiser did it that way but was very common  back in the day )

makes sense. this jeep had an electric fuel pump, and we never really tested the wipers before tear down. my dad didn't drive it on the road before we dismantled everything. it was home maybe a week before it was in pieces all over the place. hahah

With the size of that thing I would run a vacuum tank to handle all the duties. You even see then in other smaller vehicles.

Where you heading in Cali?

That is something I haven't crossed yet are my brakes. I have vacuum but probably will go hydro later.

I'm in LA for the week. then driving back to NC on Monday. I'm hoping the brakes will fall into place once we get the body back on. can't really see it being that hard. I'd like to run a line lock for the fronts so I can do away with the janky E brake to the rears.. as well as just running 3/4 ton calipers for a rear disk brake swap in the future

managed to snag an almost perfect looking np 205.. still has factory markings on it.. from a guy a couple hours away. included the coupler and adapter, as well as the shifter.
(norm, still waiting on yours to get here too. hahah)



we got a TMR NP 205 bracket as well.. but didn't get a pic of it mocked up before pulling i apart to paint and install the coupler and torque converter

both trans and tcase mount/brackets are zero shear designs.. and not a single bolt is needed to hold them in place. they are both rested on top of the frame rails to ensure a fail safe (my dad is a contractor.. its hard to break that from someone. hahah) but i think they'll work just fine, and are most likely over engineered. but they look the part on this machine.

and this.. is the seemingly impossible to find 23 spline NP 205 coupler. the seal around it is the output shaft seal in the 47RH. instead of just pulling the seal completely and allowing trans fluid to fill up the 6 bolt to 8 bolt adapter and possibly getting in the tcase, we thought it might be best to machine down the coupler to fit in the seal.
(if I'm not mistaken, the NP 205 takes gear oil and not trans fluid, correct?)

Technically.... the Np205 is supposed to take 50 weight oil. I run http://stores.buyschaefferoil.com/products/schaeffers-110-micron-moly-racing-oil-sae-50w-1-quart.html in all mine. Given it's rarely cold enough in your neck of the woods to be a issue, I am sure the 80/90W gear lube most use will be fine. I have also run them on GL4 gear oil designed for the NV4500 with no problems. (kinda spendy unless using NAPA's dino oil blend.)

As for those vacuum wipers. Unless you never plan to run the truck in inclement weather I'd advise a swap to electric wipers. Rebuilding those old Tri_co wiper motors you have, and all the assorted headaches that goes with them is usually far more expensive than a well thought out electric wiper swap.

Thought you would chime in the Norm. When I ran heavy gear oil in my 465/205 combo it would feel like you had to warm it up again after it was started as I bogged in gear (a lot) in the 0* Miinn air.
I like blended oil, now who is the Amsoil guy here? Ken?

the wiper motors actually work flawlessly. hahah.

I'll be draining all of whatecer is in there out and replacing with either 50w or 80w90 before the cab goes back on. and while I'm at it.. might need to do my old 89 as well. never checked it actually  :o
