Hmmm... I thought I had seen a CJ-5 with this engine, but maybe it was a
different Cummins. I don't have a lot of time to search, maybe someone
else can turn up some references.

Just looking quickly, I found on this page:

Scroll down to "*125 Jeff Wood & Wes Rintelen/ -1960 Jeep CJ-5/*" where
it says (among other things) "The engine is a Cummins Turbo Diesel 4-BT
with 105HP and 325 foot pounds of torque."

If it fits in a CJ, it oughta fit in a Dak. Sounds like it's not a
great street engine, but I'm sure that Jeep makes for a really nice
rockcrawler :-).
