It's been slow but it's going good now. My buddy just came over to check out the trans and it's good to go, no damage done by me!

Gonna try and get the motor back in this week.

Motors back in!

Got it in yesterday, bolting the torque converter up right now. Trying to decide what to start next. Electrical, fuel, trans lines and I have to change the gas/brake pedals.

Any tips on what you have used in this swap for gas/brake pedals?

A little progress

Picked up a trans cooler,trans fluid lines, fuel regulator and ordered a starter relay today.
Spent a lot of time trying to figure out the wiring for the stock yj fuel pump, what a mess...

Ky - you sure got that one right. Seems like I take 1 step forward and three back when all the other things don't prevent me from even making a step.

Sorry for the lack of updates.... Had a death in the family and I've been taking care of my mother. The build will start back up soon.

Sure, make me feel like an ass. Sorry to hear about your loss. I will be waiting patiently until you start working again. My build is taking forever too, life just always seems to get in the way.

Sorry for your loss Scoob. Mine is at a stand still as well. The longer it takes us is just more time to enjoy working on them.

Back at it!

Diggin in again, any tips on using the stock fuel pump to a fuel pressure regulator to feed a sbc? I narrowed it down to the 3 wires but what is what? (and thanks for your thoughts guys)

Glad you are back scoob. I am dealing with my own wiring issues. Just keep plugging away. Any of the diagrams I find for the wrangler are less than thorough. I have read where you can use the stock pump with a regulator, I have no experience with this to offer.

The hose's I got are Gates,#20827 upper and #20702 lower. They only needed a little trimming. I also got some exhaust extensions so the mufflers will clear the body mounts on the frame. I'll try and get pictures up tomorrow night.

Side note: looking to buy this bad boy.

Build is still going....

The build is still going, just a lot of other things going on also. As for the YJ, Fuel lines, electrical, I can't find the shifter and linkage for the transfer case. I need a different power steering pump, one I bought doesn't line up.

I could go on and on but I won't

I did pick this up to haul it when it's done along with hauling wood to sell.

I'm not gone

It's been awhile since I Posted. The workload at work has became insane, They got me doing production tooling design along with making prototype tooling and parts. So the YJ build suffers. I've done small stuff but nothing to report....Keep Jeepin......

I put a sbc 350 from a 94 pickup. The fuel pump will work for the 350. I dont remember which wires r for what. But I can tell u that 1 wire is positive (I think, its been a while since I worked on mine), the other is to run the pump and the 3rd is for fuel gauge.

I'm pretty much in the middle of this same build...350,700r4, but rams head block hugger headers. Last night I figured out the whole where is my TC shifter at. I am trying to mock in my motor mounts and make sure the tranny lines up. Not sure how to handle the whole TC shifter thing. Looking like it may be time to either cut a new place for the TC shifter or make some kind of new bracket. Good luck...nice build.

Different direction

As you know, I was planning on putting the 8.8 and a SOA but things have changed. I have an insane, very talented young nephew whom is building my 383 stroker. (He is in the process of building a mega truck) He has convinced me to put 1 ton axles under the yj. Good thing is I can sell the 8.8 for the same price as a 14 bolt rear. The front axle will be either a Dana 60 (not cheap $) or next best would be a 44 out of a 78-79 f250.

This should be fun....thanks for reading and my computer is shot, I'm updating on my wife's iPad. She's at work!
