Re: diesel flatty

First I have ever heard of it......

Nothing like being the first to do it....

It already sounds like you kinda know what your doing....if you have the donor vehicle....and the engine will fit...why not...the only issue I can think of will be the engine to tranny fit....

Re: diesel flatty

Saw a SUPER SWEET CJ at the badlands that was an oil burner. Crawled over everything! Can't give much info but was told it was built by them (or Troy) and it was orange. Maybe some of the guys close to there know more about it.

(just remembered that "I was told" it had a small perkins in it)

The Perkins was optional in CJs for a few years in the sixties, I've yet to see one but would love to. Mitsubishi made diesel flatty Jeeps up till 98, a CJ3B copy. Mitsu Jeep photo page

Yeah I remember seeing the JGSDF guys driving those things all over in Japan. I wanted to try to fit one in my seabag to bring home [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
