I was reading a Jeep magazine the other day and someone mentioned they had a CJ5 with a factory Perkins diesel engine. I did a little research and found it was a 192 4 cylinder engine. Horse power seems a little low. Anyone ever run one? i had a 61 Overlander with a 6 cylinder Hurricane engine in it and it was no power house. I think a diesel CJ wouyld be an eye catcher at a show. Are there any left?

What years did CJs come with diesels?

Perkins Diesels were available in Jeeps in the '60's, and possibly as early as the '50's. I'll check my Jeep books tomorrow and get a definitive answer.

I went to work for an AMC/Jeep dealer in 1968 as the owner's "administrative assistant".  That translates to gofer.  I did get to work in every department in the dealership and it was while I was in service that I saw a Perkins powered CJ come in.  The unit was not a new one by that time.  It was noisy, smelly but I thought it was neat...

The truly great ones make it look easy...

I dont know what their motive was in them years because no one but me whated a diesel. My self and another guy i worked with then always said if cummins would scale down the 335 then to a pickup size engine then some would buy them even if they couldnt drive and soon or later they came out with the 5.9 and now it has got to be too much on fuel cost to drive for the fun of it. I only start mine so it will think i have not forgot it. I have two dodge and one has more than 300000 mile on it but when i look around some gas burners has done that to. So deisel is not a runaround in truck any more. I saw gas today in Tulsa for 3.47 the lowest i have seen in awhile and that seems to be cheap after 3.81 for awile.  I would guess the diesel jeep was made for the under ground mines maybe.

Glen,

Come buy your gas here. After hearing rumors about falling gas prices I went looking around yesterday because everyone in town wanted 4.26 or more. After wandering two towns east I bought gas for $4.00. Didn't save anything after figuring what it cost to go after it.

     I guess that is the reason you guys make the big money so you can live there. No kidding i think this is our bigest cost per month here at this house and i cant stop running around even tho i ant making any money now.I got me a clunger to drive and it gets 27 to 28 and that is better than my dodge was doing and more confortable to.

Eddy, I paid $4.08 for premium in Ansonia yesterday, regular was $3.93. Was shopping nearby so didn't cost any extra to go there.

 

 

 

DODGE is the perfect thing to put on the front of a truck.

According to the "Illustrated Jeep Buyer's Guide" by Jim Allen, the Perkins diesel was available in the Jeep CJ-5 and CJ-6 from 1961 to 1969. This was a 192.2 ci 4 cylinder developing 62 hp and 143 ft lbs of torque at 1350 rpm. This compared to 72 hp from the standard 134 ci 4 cyl. 152 diesel CJ-5's and 28 CJ-6's were built the 1st year. Production numbers were not kept after that, but it is estimated that fewer than 3000 were sold. Most were exported, and only a handful remain. If you want a rare CJ-5, this would be the one.

The military M677 and related models based on the forward control Jeep FC-170 used a 170 ci 3 cyl Certlist diesel. This was an American made engine built in Clinton, Iowa. It developed 85 hp and 170 ft lbs of torque. There was an M677 for sale at Macungie this year. It sounded like a little Detroit !
