Nice. Are you going to rebuild and re-use it?

Not yet, all the stuff I pulled off the front when I did saginaw has been "creeping"
In the back of the wagoneer, I cleaned it all out to convert my storage area into a cargo area.

I don't know what I'm gonna do with all that stuff, I took a pic thinking I might try and sell it with the tornado and the single range transfer case to some lucky individual.
But it'd be nice to have if I ever restore my 64
I've got a lot more changes to make before that though.

I'm sure someone with a Tornado would love to have it. If I hadn't been spending money left and right on Jeep parts lately I'd make an offer on it just to have it. I'd like to have a 230 Wagoneer someday.

It was nice while it lasted, i liked the perfomance it offered but the bottom end knock led me down a different path.

Going to be getting the lights sorted out, getting an impala 1965 column harness adapter to tie in the new column and keep the stock jeep harness connector, didn't want to cut up my harness to wire in the lights. I left my stock column alone as well in case I return to original.

Packard 56 is the series of connectors that were used in the 60’s and 70’s. I’m always pulling those things out at the junkyard to reproduce my harness’s.

I've been driving this thing around for awhile and
good news is I'm getting about 20 miles per gallon.
Bad news is I can't travel up an incline, still don't know if it's an air leak in fuel system or gearing. Once I get the smaller Super Swampers back on it I'll try again.

Great thread! Any updates with the troubles on inclines or in general?

No progress, just more issues.
Put smaller tires on and hit the same hill and started overheating before I was able to determine if gearing was an issue with power loss. So I'm in the midst of solving cooling problems, I've kind of hit a wall with this...fearing it's severe but hopefully a new waterpump will do the trick.
The one I removed wasn't broken as i had hoped or leaking, but it did have a stamped steel impeller which doesn't fill the housing very well the replacement is an o.e. type with cast impeller machined to fit the housing.

Time will tell.

Good luck! Hopefully the new pump does it.

So...

I moved my oil cooler from in front of my radiator and I'm seeing a consistent temperature 210.
Changing the water pump didn't change anything and I had a small pin hole in a weld on a hard pipe that I fixed both of which didn't changed the temperature until after I moved oil cooler.

So now I'm going to see if gearing is an issue with power loss uphill then rebuild a different rear end with possible gear change front back to accommodate running a 31 inch tire

Right on! At least you have one problem fixed.

Thanks, its keeping me motivated.

Next is getting the rear brakes sorted out, which involves rearend/rear mounted tank swap.
I'd like to know if my gearing is an issue before I rebuild the replacement axle.
I'm hoping it's a simple fuel issue I've overlooked.

Cheap and simple stuff first though.

Awesome to see the cooling issue sorted. Keep at it!
