This is what I am building. Converting a 1984 CJ8 to a 1955-1964 M-170 Ambulance/Troop hauler (most of the way).
Front Line Ambulance Truck M-170 is designated as a special equipment vehicle as defined in AR 700-105.










I sprayed the engine, tranny & T-case with one can of 23070 OD. It's cold out so there is a little sheen to it because it's taking longer to dry. I am going to order more paint on Monday and start on the tub, I will give you before & after pics.

Before:


Before: Yes that's a Holly 650 double pumper.


After: I think I have some stock valve covers for the 360, I have to look in my inventory.






--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well I got the new Fording Kit for the M-170 build, the hose is on the way, it will be here shortly.

I did not seperate them yet but the black pipe is the air hose support pipe. The green pipe is the Fording pipe. The cap is for the top of the hose. All are NOS-New Old Stock.




HERE is how/where the rear tail pipe hooks up to go under water:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, here it is, the snorkle hose, heavy duty. That old cloth fabric sure does feel good, no plastic here folks.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O.K. The frame is done, (it may have a little sheen to it, just painted but it drys fast). It took 2 1/2 cans & waiting on the primer to do the tub.
I sanded the black rustolem w/a scotch bright pad & got rid of the gloss. The pad took it down very well & the paint sticks great. I love this OD paint, touch up is a breeze.
The pics were took in the garage under floresent lights & w/a flash, the paint should look different out in the sunlight.
Next I'll work on the axles & springs.











--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well here are some more pics of the conversion, note the front spring hangers, these were in the rear but I'm using the rear springs up front. I even welded a brace on each side for strength, cheaper than the ones they sell & probably as strong. I built a set of springs for the back. I used yJ Sky Jacker spring & added some leafs for towing, towing air bags will be in the future, maybe. The tire carrier you see mounts on the roll bar of the Jeep, I think it will look good mounted w/the Military tire on it.

Here U go:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well heres the front bumper & bumperets, the bumper is bent just a little but I'll replace maybe in the future------> Freeeebeeeee, nothing, nada. Next is the steering column, dash & axles.







--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well my new stainless brake ($$) & fuel lines are here w/the clips. The $146.08 fuel line (w/clips) is (5/16") the darker looking stainless w/the blue caps on the ends. I just bought the line from the tank to the pump since I won't run a return line. I bought the fuel line from In-line tube & the brake lines from Quadra-Tec.



Getting there,

P.S. All the other stuff (NOS parts, lights etc.) are in transit, I'll post pics when the stuff gets in.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well the shovel w/bracket, side mirror w/bracket, rear view mirror (in box), Tail black outs & front black out lights, front lifting shackles w/pins, chains & mounting base & reflectors are in. YAAaaaaa. :2thumup: :dance1:

Pics below:





--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well look what I just bought on eBay for $46.00/55.35 w/shipping.

Now I can realiy go underwater, :sneak: . For those of U who have K&N, tongue1.gif whistle.gif :biggrin1: j/k.

P.S. I have to find or make a air filter for it now. Any ideas? :scratch:





Here is the sellers comments:
This is a very nice and straight M38A1 air cleaner. There are no dents and the paint appears to be pretty good. It needs to be cleaned off though. This one comes with all the parts you see attached to it in the pictures. The inside looks new. These are commonly missing from M38A1s but if you looking, I guess you know that.
I have a bunch of other M38 and M38A1 stuff up for auction, I'm cleaning out my parts collection since I just picked up a new toy and need the room.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O.k. got the filler hoses from *--*- & all the SS lines are installed. Just finished installing the steering box w/the shaft after fighting the front shackle. If U look at the previous post w/the shackles U will notice I used a gusset on each side of the shackle, well it works fine as long as the steering bracket is left off. U can only gusset the outside of the shackle so the bracket will fit. I had to grind one side off but I did weld the bushing housing to the backing to make it stronger.

I used the rear of the stock shackle & I cut the old front CJ ones off to make a spacer so I didn't have to grind off the rivet.

Now I did buy a pair from JCW for the rear that were gusseted (if that is a word) but they are allot thinner metal & cheap. So use the rear up front & buy or get a set for the rear.

I have pics but I am working on my NEW album from my NEW host so I will have to post them here later.
Hopefully I can get the tub on next weekend (trying to get moved) so I can move my project to my NEW warehouse which will be for my NEW site etc.

P.S. It steers, :biggrin1:

O.K. here's some pics, paint still kind of wet & it looks like I missed a couples of spots but that's O.K. I'll catch it later.















--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The panel just arrived, notice how the top edge is not rolled into the door seat but it is stepped into the door seat, (meanning where the door hits & seals). The top right inside door seat of the stamp is correct, just not the bottom of the door seat.

I bought it to cut it up & use for filler pieces on the 8 so I'm not worried about the door seat, I just wanted to point it out to those who might purchase one. I did over lay it on the body & it is very close.







P.S. Notice where it was made, :2thumup: . At least it wasn't made in China

I believe that you can get replacement air filters at any auto parts store. The Mite takes a Wix filter that fits into a very similar type of filter housing.

Woreout8 donated a set of 6mo old Super lift springs (2.5") & so they were installed them on the rear (SOA)(might need a step ladder to work under it smile.gif . Here are some pics of the height of the frame ONLY :shock: & the finished install of the rear pack/shocks. The frame is sitting on 33's. :scratch:







:scratch: look where they R made. Tranny Doc should like that smile.gif




We will be building a set of rock guards later on w/a step. Oh, did I mention, adding the body to this measurement would make the top of the rear of the Jeep 5' off the ground plus a 1"BL. It should setting some, I hope. There is a 12" load spring to help when I tow the camper. I hope it doesn't crack the spring where the load spring ends, still contemplating whether or not to leave it due to that reason.

Oh no, I just realized I didn't prime the shocks & then OD them. Jim is gonna have my tuercas.

=======================================

Ok, I went on Tom Woods site to get some info on the DS angles etc. (as U can see I'm using his business card w/the scale on the back of it smile.gif ) I have a cardan joint DS out of a J10 (kept in stock) which is to short for the rear so I set the original CJ's rear DS in place w/out the U-J cups just to see where I'm at. T-Woods says, If you do have a substantial lift on the vehicle, you may want to consider a double cardan (CV) drive shaft since with a conventional two joint drive shaft you need to keep the output of the transfer case & the pinion parallel within 1 degree, and in relationship to either the drive shaft should be running at absolutely no greater than 15 degrees (this is a pushed limit). If you cannot fall within this parameter, then you will want to pitch the differential so that the pinion points directly at the output of the transfer case (maintaining 3 degrees, or less, a joint angle at the differential end) & use a double cardan (C.V.) drive shaft.

So here is what I have (w/out the cups but it's very close, I guess I could put them in but this is just preliminary). 14-15* on the stock set up. The pinion is almost parallel to the t-case & the DS is almost fully collapsed. (looking for a flywheel for a 360 so I can mount my T-176 back in, donations excepted smile.gif )

Can't find my dial indicator sad.gif

I do have a 1" T-case drop kit in stock but hate to use it.

I also have some 6* shims.
















Maybe I should just go w/the 2.5 SUA & the 1"BL @ least that is what the rest of the family is suggesting.

Here's my son sanding down the shocks so they can be painted OD green so JimB would have a cow w/the white ones smile.gif


Here's the old man tightening down a shock.


More to come.

Just a note: had to re-convert to a the SUA (picks when the camera gets new batteries), the War Dept's troops said it was to tall. Oh well, at least everything will go back easier. When my dial indicator comes in I will check the outers for the degree that they are setting & if need be add shims to obtain 4-6* of castor with 6* being the optimum.

P.S. I have a pretty good color scheme coming up for the axles that might look good. I have to paint them before the tub goes on. What do you think about this.
1. Outers=Black
2. Tubes=OD
3. Pumpkin=Black
4. Steering=OD
5. DS=Black

I measured the height of the total finish and the top of the 8's rear bed would have been @ 5 feet w/the 2.5" SOA. I'm not getting any younger so the kids twisting my arm said that it would be better off lowered. So the plan still stands w/the 2.5" seen below & the 1" Day-star BL I have in stock. I think it will be plenty high for me & I can go most places in the South East. It did cut down on expense & build time. I just wish I could come up w/a Flywheel for the 360 so I could mount my clutch, then my DS would not have to be shortened on one end & lengthen on the front. If I do do it, I'll do a write up on it. Since I bought the kit a year ago I might as well replace the seals on the D-300 since it started to leak. Easier to do it now.

So, here are some pics of the 2.5" frame only w/yJ shackles w/6* shims in the rear axle (I do have the big long ones but...........).
Next, brake lines paint then the D-300 re-seal, gear swap, DS & get rid of those shinny V-covers & put the stock one on painted black.

Well, I took the portioning valve apart & cleaned it up, have to go to Lowe's to get two bolt so I can tap the frame (trying to make all my bolts/nuts American standard).










The fluid came out a little rusty but clean.





BTW-it cleaned up well, thanks Ian.

I painted the plate w/Galvanized primer then flat black & then OD green.

Ok, I moved the brake lines so they wouldn't be in the way while backing. I will fine tune them later when I install the brake hose's.

Well, I used up all but two spray cans of the 23070 OD from Gillespie's, still have one gallon of 23070 OD left, two spray cans & one gallon of the Red Oxide left. Had two get my money's worth even if I spent it three years ago. smile.gif I could have enhanced some of the pics but I wanted them left as is.







Enhanced version:


Taping the holes two days after the Por-15 & paint job. Yes, those couple of holes in the floor pan are for historical purposes smile.gif

OK, here it goes. Need a little help here.

I took out the filler cause I was looking @ options as far as mounting the military lights. As you can see, there is plenty of room if the filler is moved to the side of the Jeep. Now, if I don't move it, the light on the filler side will not work (veryyyyy tight, maybe, doubt it) unless I mount it outside & just through bolted it (look like :fan2: ) to the tub, it would stick out just as far as the stock (oh, no) square tail lights.

Below are some pics of my meaning.



Don't rag me about the paint job, remember what Dave said. smile.gif


Now, it will fit up in there a little more, the plastic housing is holding it back.


The gas lines run through this hole. Also, look @ the fillers metal, where it mounts to the plastic it is ROUND smile.gif . I could get rid of the plastic housing & just hole saw the outside & mount it using an old style cap. Second thought, just hit me this second, if it is there & I hit some trees etc. .......... Maybe to much to worry about.


Showing the metal rib on the right of the plastic housing.


See, there is room up in the triangle section.

Well sanded, primed & painted the Sway bar tonight. I also tweeked the twin stick brackets for a final fitting (had to weld a bridge & re-grind one) tonight, primed & paint them as well.








Twin stick brackets-fit like a glove.




Note: All OD will be touched up @ final inspection.

Mock up of twin stick (maybe could use one more washer but I have to think about it), I tried the bushing as per the write up on this forum but it seemed to go easier w/washers. I also used the old pins for the shift rails as the others were short calling for a 3/4" (really needs to be about 1 1/4"-1 1/2"Max by the time you get the washer/loc-washer/nut on etc.) I will not bend the shifter itself until the tub is on & I see where I want it. I did have to open the hole where the pins go on the flat-stock as they were tight. If you used the flat-stock dimensions (I recommend you do) you will need a Dremel to fine tune it but you will be happy with the results.

Installed the trany lines and plumbed in the gas tank. Ready to set the tub on Saturday.





Mounted the lines on the motor mount for easy removal & they are far enough from the exhaust manifold.


Tank plumbed in. Ran vent line through the frame to the front/charcoal canister. Covered the S-Steel lines to prevent chaffing.

Well thanks to some of the CCJ club, the tub was installed today along with the 1" daystar BL. Sorry I couldn't get more involved pics but someone had to do something smile.gif Next week, prep/paint.

Scott had to weld the two rear nuts inside the frame, when tightening, they spun.








Looks like I need to do some touch up painting, in the end of course.






Notice the Twin Stick and the notch cut out, just enough and the original cover will still fit like original.

OK, the prep is done for the U-POL Raptor spray in bedliner. I have to wash it tomorrow morning and then tape it off/spray it.



Below are some pics of the POR-15 applied.

Bulkhead


Backside of windshield hinges


Windshield mounting locations




Front cowl. This will stay since it is behind the dash etc.


Drivers side door jamb just above the joint


Bulkhead joint and side walls done


Bulkhead installed





Now here is where I sanded the tub w/180 grit and hand sanded/buffed the tub w/a red Scotch pad per the U-POL instructions. I added the 180 grit, wanted the stuff to stick as good as it can.








Tomorrow I wash the tub, air dry it, tape it off and spray smile.gif

Taping tub off for Raptor bed-liner spray






Taping off the bolt holes etc.




Shooting the Raptor. IMO, a lot better then the roll on liner for the ease of application/looks


First coat shot and out in the sun to bake


Having fun


Touch up out in the sun so I could see better




Finished, removing tape






Jr removing some tape


Jr removing the tape off the foot of the roll bar


Tub complete










Tub complete, sorry about the camera angle


OD color contrast on how it will look when completed




Ok I'm tired and I am very please w/this product. Prep was 180 grit and then followed up by a red Scotch pad. I wanted it really scuffed due to some of the POR-15 used and old paint on top of paint. Way to easy w/the spray on. I had the compressor @ 120psi and regulated the spray @ the gun. I did some test shots w/just air w/the compressor set @ 50psi to get the feel, then raised the compressor and adjusted @ the gun. Worked out well and when I changed bottles I just unhooked the air line to keep the consistency for the next bottle. After the first coat & stuck the gun in some lacquer thinner and shot until the gun was clean. Waited an hour while it bakes in the sun & shot the last coat w/the main object concentrating on the bed since it will take the most abuse. So, how does it look? I'm sure it will pop when the OD gets on there. smile.gif

POR-15 on battery tray, hood support, vacuum can, jack plate & fender supports


Since I am doing OD & black I think the black accents under the hood would look good.
