The Dauntless (Buick) 225ci V6 was an option for CJ-5 from 1965 thru 1971. Was and still is a great little motor. From factory producing 160 Hp and had alot of torque due to a heavy flywheel.

Go to www.earlycj5.com for more info. An excellent source for the info your looking for.

I should add that I had the Dauntless in mine until it needed rebuilt. I found a 231 for $100 so I swapped it out. When I get some extra cash I am going to find another Dauntless. I really liked the motor.

The motor your looking at.....is it odd fire or even fire? Mine was a even fire...so I had to have the flywheel balanced. Other than that it bolted right up.

i don't want to change the motor it has the 225 but so it must be a even fire because the buick i am looking at has the same firing order i just was wanting to convert the ignition over to the one out of the skylark and hoping it will work

The 225 is a odd fire and will have the same firing order.

You can upgrade the ignition to the HEI distributor. It is a good upgrade. Infact you can convert a even fire distributor to a odd fire. Just do a google seach. If you need any help just drop me a line.

You never said what year the skylark was, Buick changed from Odd Fire to Even Fire mid 1976. If it's a front wheel drive, don't even fool with it as the motor mounts on the block are relocated and won't fit unless your a great frabricator!

I'm thinking he is just wanting to swap distributors for the ignition upgrade...
