    I just picked up my CUCV Blazer. I am putting my M715 project to the side to get this one done. I have a set of excellent condition M1028 CUCV axles to go in it. 4.56 gears, detroit rear, powerlock front, Dana 60/14 bolt.

    I have a 6.2 built up already. I will be putting a web page toegether to detail the buildup. I do not think more can be done to a 6.2. Should do 300HP/500 FTLBS at about 1900 rpm.

    I am going to run an eaton 30% gear splitter/OD and NP205 when I get the time to do the install. In the meantime, I am going to run the stock T400/NP208.

    The CUCV is very low mileage and I will have a nice set of 10 bolts to sell or trade. I need a tailgate, all of the pedal assembly, steering column, etc. to convert this to a standard, and some other stuff.

    Thanks for such a great site!

    Thanks

    The 10 bolts are 3.07 geared, front open, rear Gov Lock. Low mileage.

    What's an Eaton 30% gear splitter/OD ??

    I may be able to help you out on the manual conversion parts. Send me a PM if you're interested.

    The Eaton unit is an axuillary transmission that mounts between the bellhousing and transmission. Like a AA Ranger OD/gear splitter unit but a lot heavier duty for big trucks. It is 30% for OD or splitting gears. The trans is a NP435 with NP205 tcase.

    I'm not sure, so I thought I'd ask... What is a CUCV Blazer? Is it a surplus military blazer?
