    Cummins 6BT / 5.9 Conversions
    Running the stock size 1310 u-joints, spicer non-greasable. They are very small. Stock to the Jeep. That is changing soon though.

    Yes upgrades are in the works. Have the donor truck but will probably be down the whole winter once I rip into it. Everything is getting replaced from the trans down.

    U-joint is just a little baby 1310. It can’t hold up to my right foot. Lol

    Can’t be that much, appears to be a stock 190hp p-pump. It usually struggles to get 20psi on flat ground, I am guessing the grade helped and maybe I just mashed the pedal harder into the carpet. Lol this is the third u-joint that has failed like this in 6 months. All shortly after hard...

    Well getting sick of weak parts. Had the wagoneer parked for a couple weeks after the last u-joint failure. Missed driving it so I grabbed a set of spicer joints and new straps, rebuilt the drive shaft. Cleaned everything up. Got it back on the road Last Thursday 11/7. coming home from work...
  6. My 12v has a miss and haze!

    The torque is exactly why I don’t want to go much further then basics. I think the new drivetrain will hold up fine, I would like to run 37s but probably limit it to 35s, trying to keep it a reasonable height. I will be trimming the fenders, but don’t want to cut up into the wood grain trim...

    The mods you mentioned , gov, #10, and timing are on the list. turbo is a wastegated Wh1c, this motor was from a 95or96 f650 I believe. I am hoping to keep the current turbo and just see where I get. The current tuneworks fine for me. I keep breaking u-joints. Engine mods will come on after I...

    Motor is a 190hp p-pump. Was going to do all the cheap mods once I get the new axles and transmission installed and go from there. 300 is more then enough for me. It’s a daily driver and need to keep it reliable, not breaking stuff all the time like I am currently Ken

    Hmmmm, disregard I guess. Let it idle for about 45 minutes at the shop while organizing and cleaning up stuff and drove it home, running great! No miss etc. next is to get the tank in. I will be back to posting on my normal thread

    A Jeep TJ(I think) just popped up for sale out in Reno NV area with a r2.8 with less then 50hrs run time for $19k I was thinking about contacting him and asking about it and why he is trying to sell.

    So my Wagoneer has been down for a couple weeks waiting on me to have some time to give it a bit of love and a rebuilt driveshaft. The day prior to parking it I ran out of fuel. (Tank doesn’t have a sender, installing a new tank soon to remedy this) got the drive shaft in last night and took...

    I thought about that after posting. That kind of sucks! I understand why they do it but makes things difficult

    Char, I would hope to make it like my kubota adapters. My adapter bolts to the block and eliminates the stock bellhousing, a crankshaft adapter is used for whatever flywheel. This generally saves a couple inches in length also. makes the back of the Kubota identical to what you are...

    If I could get my hands on one of these motors I would have a new line of adapters right next to my Kubota line. I don’t have the extra funds to lay down the cash currently. Haven’t had a customer ask about it either. You can swap a V2203 into an xj with a complete bolt in setup including a/c...
