Re: Need info on a J200
The first four numbers and letter (2406F) mean this:
J-200, 4WD, 4,000 lb GVW. Also, my books show that this number setup falls between 1962-70. The info on the 327 V-8 is accurate, but the Buick 350 V-8 became available in 1966. To ID your engine, look at the alternator bracket. The 327 has (or should have) a tag bolted to it. The top line will read "KJC" (Kaiser Jeep Corp.). the bottom line has a 6 digit number. First number shows the engine's build year; 7=1965, 8=1966, 9=1967, 1=1968. (IF it has the tag, I'll e-mail you the rest of the decode info.) The 350 has an engine code number on the driver's side of the block, between the FRONT TWO spark plugs. (I have the decode info for that engine, too.) Also, check with a transmission shop that is familiar with the TH400 and the AS-8F, since my book shows the TH400 didn't show up in the J-series until 1970. For ease in finding parts numbers from a Chrysler dealer (to cross reference at NAPA, Shuck's, etc.), the body style is "Thriftside".
