Very, Very, Nice. Ever figure out what caused the POR problem? Going to go look at a 715 Monday, if the guy will ever call me back. Done any mileage runs on the diesel yet?

Thanks for the compliments!

I never did figure out the POR15 problem. I am guessing it is user error, maybe I didn't rinse the Metal Ready off completely

Anyway, something went wrong with the clutch release mechanism today. The release arm is moving from what I can see. I hope the bearing didn't come apart. I am in no mood to remove that trans.

Also, I have been getting roughly 20-25 mpg.

Back in action today. Installed the new master cylinder for the clutch and all seems to be good. I did several long, topless test drives today in 37 degree temps. I'm ready for warm weather.

I have a set of the original axles from under an Kaiser M715 that I am resurecting. Dana 60 Front and Dana 70 Rear with 5.87's. I am strongly considering putthing them under my 1969 Kaiser Jeep Wagoneer. Would be stronger than the stock equipment and also be period and manufacturer correct (my Jeep Wagoneer has 49,500 and change original miles)

BTW, If anybody has stock rims for the M715 or better yet After market rims with a 6 on 7.25 bolt pattern, I would be interested in hearing from you. I have 4 original rims that are being modified but I need spares...Thanks.

If you are going through the hassles of changing axles, change to something worthwhile. The front 60 is no better than an open knuckle 44, not to mention heavy brake drums that don't stop for crap.

I had my brakes rebuilt on my M715, I used stainless sleeves in the wheel cylinders, had the drums turned and had the pads relined with carbon metallic. Also, I am running a hydroboost booster with humvee master cylinder and it stops really well, I almost went through the windshield on stop number one. It is cool.

I am not worried about the brakes at all. The axles in the D60 M715 Front are Significantly stronger (by rating) than a stock D44 and the Massive Drum Brakes that are intended for a Much heavier vehicle will most certainly stop a vehicle that weighs less.

Besides, I am only Considering this axle swap. My jeep is very originaly with extremely low miles..I am having trouble making the decision to cut it up to fit fullsize axles that are Worthless with out 37in tires minimum.

I am building the axles anyways, I got them basically for Free and the carrier's and lockers could be transplanted into a more modern d60/d70 if I wanted to. For me, its all about bang for the buck and I have multiple projects that could incorporate these axles.

I will probably be lifting my jeep a bit on the Stock axles (d27/d44) and just having fun camping out of it, but who knows...

Thanks to BJ's offroad for the advice and tips in relation to my jeep projects current direction.

Thanks to all with constructive things to say

Regrets about selling it?? No. This little 4bt runs it's tail off. Yesterday was 25 degrees in the morning and she started right up, no smoke, no block heater. Not bad for a essentially 'free' engine. I do regret sinking $thousands into the 6.2 and not getting anything for it.

Had a few issues before the holidays. I went to do the locker/gear install and found that the 14bolt was dismantling itself. The carrier was falling out.








After the 4.56 gears, front Power Lock/rear Detroit were installed....I put it right back on firewood duty









And one more to scare everyone

Picked up the new tires today. 12.5R20's brand new from surplus dealer $700 for four. Roughly 42" tall.

Compared to the old 11.00x16's










I will order the new 20" wheels when I get some $$$ and get these things mounted. I might have to modify the front fender flares a bit.
