Nice score!Picked up a CUCV II today. Since they're so rare I didn't have much choice in condition. It's going to need a lot of metal work and a donor parts car, but at least it runs and has a title.
Just like a woman, I can shave off 100lbs with the right camera angles. I also shaved off 100 lbs of rusted sheet metal with my pressure washer.Nice score!
You saw it up close, so you know about the metal work needed.
But from the pic, the sheetmetal looks good-to-great, where are the problem areas?
You can never be sure any label is accurate, but the thought there is sure helpful:Still trying to figure out how to reinstall the 24v system. The label is faded but the relay on the left is marked "24V".
Read Stonepicker1 ancient posts about this subject. There is a 12/24 converter that is (was) mounted somewhere. It charges the second battery when a voltage signal tells it the ignition is on. Also need a 24 volt starter.Still trying to figure out how to reinstall the 24v system. I found these two relays and one disconnected wire. Haven't traced where it goes yet, put a multimeter on it and there is no voltage. The label is faded but the relay on the left is marked "24V".
Do you have a part number for the converter? According to the CUCV II reference manual that was in my glovebox, the converter behind the seat was only for a 24v radio power supply.Converters for the blazers were behind the panel on the right rear I think. The pickups had them behind the seat. Mine was missing and I picked one up on the _bay that was a takeout from newer jeeps that were being used over seas.
Interesting. I have attached a picture of the manual I have and it shows a different model. The description also makes it sound like the main purpose of the of the power supply is to power a radio instead of charging the 24v battery system.I believe that it cuts on when the 12 volt side reaches about 14 volts. I'll see the volt gauge pulse while it cycles on and off.
