Sooo....I'm getting pretty close to the end of the build. A few notes I will leave here and again if you have any questions about how I did something let me know.
As for having enough room front to back of the engine compartment, yes I did and I used a mechanical old school fan with no clutch. I had the clutch but could not find a fan to fit it so I used the type I had with a 2.5 inch spacer. With about 2 inches in the back from the dist. to about 2.5 inches from the fan to the radiator. The only close place I have is the front drive shaft is very very close to the oil filter which is located on the rear driver side of motor.
With the 700r4 tranny and the Novak TC adapter and motor location I had to cut approx. 1 inch off my rear drive shaft otherwise I would have taken a chance of it taking out my TC from being to long. The front drive shaft was ok and so I left it alone.
If you are using this info please note the 4x4 shifter will move in the vehicle towards the rear. As you can see in my pics it was pretty close to the back of the hole. I used a B&C quicksilver shifter that ratchets unknowing that's the way it worked. I would have been happy with just a locking shifter.
The tranny mount was perfectly placed on the old tranny/cross member to where there was already two factory holes placed right where I needed them. So there was no having to move the cross member. This was just luck I assure you. I think the Novak motor mounts were the real deal breaker for me. They allowed me a lot different directions and that I could go if need be.
I used the Rams head exhaust and these babies breath. They are engine huggers with the center dumps. I had an exhaust shop put on the exhaust and he had to make a 90 deg pipe for the driver side. Once again the front drive shaft gets in your way. I had dual glass packs with turn down outlets that dumped out just before the rear axle.
I used the 4 banger oil pressure unit on my 350 along with the water temp unit. I had to use a bushing for it and placed it in the intake manifold.
The rest I guess is just details. As I said I used a 1991 TB style motor and went to a old school type motor with V belts and all.
Now I'm at the wiring side of things and this is where my plan fell short. I am not a wiring guy so I have many issues. For right now I'm using the existing wiring and hanging it outta my way till I can find someone to help with it. I called the painless sight and they have no application for a 95 jeep. My luck. Thank you for following or reading I hope I have helped you in your project in time or money. I will take any questions that I can answer to help ya out.
