cj 2a clutch

Hi. Not sure if this is the right spot for this question but here goes. A coworker recently offered me a free cj 2a with a plow and blowen clutch. My wife loves these things and i plan on rebuilding it for her. It has the buick 6 cylinder conversion in it and he says he cant figure out what clutch to buy for it. Any suggestions? Is this motor worth keepkng? Id like to eventually add more modern v6 with efi but being in iowa a running jeep with plow might not be bad for this winter either. Thanks for the help

the buick v6 was a good little engine..kaiser offered the buick dauntless odd fire v6 in the jeep from the mid 60's through I believe 71..biggest things your wife might dislike about this jeep will be the manual steering,weak brakes and stiffer clutch..

I figure thats a problem. Figured id need.to.do.some.swaping at a later date. Newer axels with better brakes and such but wondered about clutch replacement for now. Ive been told clutch from.cj.5 with v6 and an advance adapters throw out bearing. Does tbis sound right to.anyone thats done this swap. This old stuff is a little new to me lol

I would pull the clutch and head to the local NAPA. Where I live the auto parts stores are big box stores and generally don't hire parts men. A good parts man will be able to hit the catalog and within ten minutes have you lined out. The Dauntless V6 was common in late 60's to early 70's Jeep and with that information and the clutch and pressure plate in hand you should be able to find a clutch at a good parts store without a problem. Over the years I have seen plenty of these motors on the trail and they perform well. harleydragon is right on the brakes of a CJ-2a. Those things are scary to me but what can you expect from an almost 70 year old hydraulic system. I suggest finding some late model CJ-5 axles and swap them out. You will need to get the proportioning valve or a replacement which is easily found and it's road manners will change dramatically. Best of luck to you.
