DON’T DUMP COOL JUNK
QI have a ’67 M715 and I’m in the middle of a drivetrain swap. I pulled the original Jeep Tornado 230, the T-98 four-speed, and the NP200, and I’m replacing it with a 400 small-block, TH350, and NP203. My only question is what do I do with the original drivetrain? I’m trying to find somebody doing an M715 restoration project. I know these trucks/engines are 40 years old, but I’d still hate to dump it all at the scrap yard when somebody could use it for a resto project.

AOur first suggestion would be to give them to our boss. He likes old Jeep parts. Otherwise find a good military vehicle website like Steel Soldiers (www. steelsoldiers.com) and post them for sale in the classifieds section. You could also post them in the forum section of our website, fourwheeler.com You may not sell them, but you’ll likely find someone willing to take them for free. Another option is to find a local military truck parts yard. They may take or even trade you something for the parts.
