1967 Kaiser Jeep M-715 6BT Build
Alright guys... time to start the build thread on this one..... heres the lowdown end goal and of parts I already have....

End goal: Somewhat stock appearing M-715 (no huge tires sorry, no spring-over axle, no crazyiness unfortunately).... Daily driven capable.... steers and stops like a modern 1-ton... with just a few too many leafs. (Hence why the m715 is known also as a 5/4 ton). Motor will stay OEM power wise... (as I have a baby 11" clutch)

1991.5 Cummins 5.9L 6BT (VE Rotary)
1993 Ford ZF S542 5 Speed Transmission
Married Ford Np205.. which will be twin sticked and also have my original m715 NP200 E-brake drum housing machined to fit the new NP205.

Ford Dana 60 HP King Pin Front Axle (1988 F350)
Ford Sterling 10.25 Rear Axle (1988 F350)
Disc brakes in all 4 corners (sterling disc conversion)
Hydroboost off of a 2010+ F250/350

Enjoy the ride!

Night I got it home off the transporter from Grand Rapids, MN...

Back to my home base in my own shop

Broken down and the hard top off and windshield hinged down

OEM Dash

Prestine bed and all the correct bumperettes and shackles

Non-numbers matching jeep tornado 230 (oem equipment)

Its replacement... 1991.5 Cummins VE

Disassemble Time

Are you planning a cross member under the 6bt? Looking forward to your progress!

No.... OEM frames are strong enough if your not rock bouncing them... *MOST* guys who put in 6BT's do not.... if I was upping the power from OEM (which I'm not) and had a transmission that could take it... I would indeed brace the frame underneath.

Since I'm remaining stock in my engine, and my ford ZF transmission only has an 11" clutch.... frame spreading will not be of any concern...

I am also interested in your plumbing of the hydroboost to cummins PS pump and what steering box you are going with. I have a similar set up with a FSJ box that I am hoping will have enough flow to turn 39's. I am holding off on the crossmember until I notice a problem, thanks for the input.

Out with the old... in with the "new" front axle

Old 5.86 ratio closed knuckle dana 60 with drums.... in with the new King Pin, High-Pinion Ford F350 Dana 60 with discs....


The Sterling 10.25 Rear as I bought it....

Got me a Kingpin 60

Sneaking it in....

why didn't you sterilize the new axle of all the old brackets and mounts before you put it inder the m715 ?

osok December 12th, 2015 05:27 PM

drivers side front diff will make routing your exhaust easier with the 6bt.

Looking good, keep the pics coming!
