    here is some info on the old dogs engine.
    Buick 225
    Main article: Buick V6 engine

    The "Dauntless" 225 cu in (3.7 L) V6 engine was introduced in the 1966 Kaiser CJ and as an option in the C101 Jeepster Commando. Kaiser bought the tooling from Buick to build the 225 during the short period prior to selling their Jeep subsidiary to AMC.

    AMC retained the Buick engine briefly after it bought Jeep. It was retired in 1971, shortly after the 1970 acquisition. The tooling was then sold back to General Motors in 1974, and this engine continues to be used today.

    The engine was an odd-fire V6, meaning that TDC for the cylinders was not evenly spaced around the engine but grouped in pairs. The engine was known at the time for its power and reliability. It would idle slowly, but not as smooth as other engines, especially the inline sixes.

    This engine was used in the following vehicles:

    * Jeep CJ-5
    * Jeep CJ-6
    * C101 Jeepster Commando
    * (various small Buicks @'60 till @'64)

    not a bad design realy opens the floodgates to upgrades as its the same 3.8 v6 gm uses today not sure if amc cast a different bellhousing or if it uses the common chev pattern not.

    I'd ask you to step away from the welder, but it might do the world some good if you clamp the ground electrode to your big toe, put the MIG handle to your temple and pull the trigger.

    Very cool. looks to be still fairly solid. If you're going to keep the odd fire don't get too excited about using anything from the modern 3.8, not even remotely close, but there are a couple of good choices to up grade the ignition. If you're looking for info on them I can send you a couple of good links. Trans bolt pattern is Buick/Olds/Pontiac.

    Hi there JonnyA

    Nice start. A few years ago I did a rebuild on a 69 CJ5. The 225V6 is a great engine, worth the time and $ to save. Lots of hp and torque. I don't remember the #'s but the close to the same torque as a 304 but with better gas milage and more than enough to turn 35's without much gearing. It should have Dana 44's front and rear. Drums on the front are a little crappy but they can aways be changed to disc. Look forward to following this one. Good luck and keep the pic's coming.

    Looks like a fairly decent Jeep. It would have a Dana 27 front if it orginal and a Dana 44 rear. I ran 35x14.5 with the same setup and the Duantless V6 turned them no problem.
