diesel cj2

Postby Jim Bow » Sat Jan 06, 2007 11:50 am

I repair computer networks, and I visit a lot of the local Police departments. Last week I noticed a primer painted jeep for sale on an employee bulletin board. It was a nice looking tub with newer mag-type wheels and, according to the sellers write up, a "three cylinder Isuzu diesel engine".
Has anyone ever heard of this engine or its installation in a vintage jeep?

Look up the Pakistani Jeep forum.

Not that engine, but I know a guy with a M422 A1 with a Nissan four cylinder. It's a sweet and unstopable ride.

Most Jeeps in my country use this type of engines, gas is quite expensive here and diesel isnĀ“t, besides you get better milage per litter. Not to mention more power than the original
Just for the record, I stick with stock. :wink:

Kaiser put the Perkins diesel in the CJ5 and CJ6 here in the states for a couple of years in the 60's. So if you want a US CJ and a Diesel you can have one stock.

Three cylinder diesels are a pretty common item, I was at a show here recently and talked to the Yanmar rep, he had a 3 cyulinder drop in for a cj, it takes some rigging to set it up but it didn't sound difficult.

The three cyl Isuzu's are common in some Onan gen sets, good engine, better option is the 3 and 4 cyl Kubota.
More reliable than Isuzu no oil leaks.
