Jeep of gas 66 – tips from the masters
How to make a jeep from a GAZ 66 car
Many connoisseurs of the domestic auto industry who want to make a jeep on their own choose the GAZ 66 car for this transformation. Undoubtedly, this “blockbuster” of the Soviet era has its own miscalculations, for example, a bad gearbox and engine. The GAZ 66 cab also became its huge drawback, as it is very heavy with an engine and is located above the front axle. Many experts note that in terms of weight distribution, it was the cabin of the GAZ 66 car that became an extremely unfortunate decision. However, this model also has its advantages: a flexible and durable frame with self-locking differentials, which is why the bare GAZ 66 chassis with a cab, gearbox and engine removed is an excellent start for constructing a jeep. Consider one of the options to create a jeep from GAZ 66.
A diesel 7.5-liter 6-cylinder cast-iron atmospheric engine from the Hino five-ton is installed. It is aggregated with a 6-speed gearbox from the same car, but the razdatka can be left native to GAZ 66.
To create a good jeep from a GAZ car, 66 craftsmen have to redo the cross members of the frame, and cut it off at the edges. And in order to achieve the most correct load distribution, the motor shifts as far back as possible.
The size of the tires on the GAZ 66 is quite consistent with the requirements of the average jeep, but the craftsmen usually remake their native wheels “inside out”, increasing the reach of the wheels by 10 cm, that is, by expanding the track by 20 cm. Thanks to this decision, it is possible to make the jeep higher, which in turn gives it stability. The size of the tires on the GAZ 66 can be taken smaller, and most importantly, easier than the native tires, Tiger tires can be a suitable option.
The GAZ 66 car is also often used to create a motor home, in which case you will have to design a kung. The dimensions of the GAZ 66 kung can be different, before you begin any work related to this, you need to schematically design everything, having decided on the approximate dimensions. In general, practice shows that the size of the kung on a GAZ 66 car needs to be determined depending on the general purpose of the carrier vehicle, its design, the presence of hatches, windows, etc..
