blakeq63 I'm going with the SYE from JB Coversions too. I guess I need to put in my order. Going to try to use the TC shift from the truck. I got a tunnel cover from Novak.

Sounds like you are moving along. I am going check out your thread. Post plenty of pics.
08-12-2013 01:10 PM
kywaterman Slowly but surely you'll get it done. Ive got my trans and transfer in. Definitely going with the sye on mine. That JB conversion one I told you about is out of stock till the end of this month.... So going to wire up the motor in the meantime. Have you gave your tranfer case shifter any thought?
08-12-2013 10:04 AM
blakeq63 Not dead yet...............Got a little work done. Cut out old motor mounts. Cleaned up tranny and tcase.

Guy at work says, "with a little patience and perseverance you can piss a hole through a pebble."

blakeq63 WOW.......no time on the jeep the last 2 weekends. Head is spinning with thoughts. I realize now I am in the deep end and don't know how to swim. Going to try to get back with it this weekend.
07-17-2013 06:49 PM
kywaterman I wouldn't think so, my stand alone harness dosnt have them incorporated so I dont see a problem in you cutting them out of yours.
07-17-2013 06:44 PM
CAJUN YJ I'm not going to run stock gauges either, but I'm kinda wondern if this will give me crap with the ECM wiring r not.....

Thats exactly what I have to figure out myself lol. It should be a little simpler for me since Im not going to run the stock gauges but I'm about 2 weeks away from wiring. So hopefully someone eles will chime in and give us both some advice. At the least a general direction ha
07-15-2013 10:36 AM
blakeq63 Well........no progress this weekend. Helped a buddy with his four wheeler on Friday, helped in-laws with a home remodel on Saturday, and had honey-dos on Sunday. I think I looked at the wiring for about 15 minutes total. I don't know a lot about all this stuff, but I do know I don't know s**t about wiring.

Looking at the bulkhead connectors....the right side is all front end lights and the left side goes to engine and gauges?

What wires do I need to leave in place if I am going to run the computer from the donor truck and an Affordable Fuel Injection 350 TBI wiring harness and chip?
07-12-2013 07:38 AM
blakeq63 kywaterman - I am going to start on wiring this weekend...........I am going to pull the computer from the donor truck and get a TBI chip and wiring harness from Affordable Fuel Injection. I'll update after this weekend's "adventure".

CAJUN YJ - yeah, I decided to try it myself cause I couldn't find a shop that would do it in less than 3 months. I figured I could do it in 3-4 months, learn something new, and save $1500-$2000 in labor. Well, not save, but spend $$$ on something else that I want for the jeep. LOL.
07-12-2013 12:07 AM
CAJUN YJ Lookn good. If ur like me just wkn on it on the weekends an a lil bit after wk, it takes a lil while but will all be worth it!
07-11-2013 10:15 PM
kywaterman Blake looks like its coming right along. Ive been thinking bout the wiring on mine, and seeing your setup will be pretty much the same, you'll likely have the answer. Are you going to leave the stock harness in the jeep, to control the starter and get power to the accesories(lights gauges and whatnot). Then just tie in the 350s harness?

Thanks,the entire jeep is that nice.There are many pics of it in my garage as well as in the jeeps for sale section..chevy 350 turbo and new process 208..both built by Godley's Performance Transmissions in Moultrie,Ga..Richard Godley builds and ships racing transmissions all over the country.The tranny's shifter is a Lokar.I built the transfer case shifter using a harley handle bar.My wife designed and hand sewed the shifter boots for both out of upholstery leather..

We'll see when it comes time to set everything in.
7/5/13 Engine/Tranny/TCase pulled and I plan to clean up the cavity this weekend.

I have the Lokar in one of mine and really like it..
07-10-2013 07:42 AM
CAJUN YJ ^^^ I screwed up an had to build me some mounts because I messed up an welded my first set of mounts in a lil too high. So I had to cut them out an ended up building me a new set from some steel I got from work.....

That helps alot! i kinda listed the links before the pics, to give you an idea of what i was looking at, but I didnt know you had the donor, so....

Awesome!

2xs The Throttle Body/Injector unit in the TBI setups has a built in Fuel Pressure Regulator, and all you need to do is feed it 14PSI

Your stock 2.5L should run about 41, perhaps replacing your in-tank pump with a GM TBI one might do the trick, the fuel pumps are similar:

Original Replacement Parts 52018391P - Electric Fuel Pump for 94-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ with 2.5L Engine, 94-96 Cherokee XJ with 2.5L or 4.0L Engine & 93-96 Grand Cherokee ZJ with 4.0L or 5.2L Engine - Quadratec

www.FuelPump.co -- GMC Fuel Pump Parts

they might even be interchangeable, just swap the harness with a junk yard harness for the GM pump.

EDIT:
Attached pic is a close up of the top of the pump I have in the garage from a 94 TBI Suburban, Im sure you could swap over this connector, and gert this pump to fin in your hanger. Second pic is the GM hanger, and the Third pic should be what you have

CAJUN YJ ^^^lololololol u r right bout dat! Lol def no hills here! Just a bunch of ol black sloppy mud.
06-30-2013 07:52 PM
blakeq63 Billmummey - going to run my stock D35/D30 for now, until I can get my hands on a Ford 8.8. I am pretty easy on vehicles and there's definitely no rocks or hills where I live.
06-30-2013 10:32 AM
Billmummey What axles are you using.... I want to swap in a 350 but don't want to have to put in full size axles and budget wise spending the money on jeep D44 won't be an option
06-30-2013 09:57 AM
blakeq63 kywaterman - ordered a 3 row aluminum radiator with trans cooler from Radiator1 on EBAY for $214 with shipping and a 16" EFan Kit from Hot Rod Parts Clearance on EBAY for $80 with free shippping. I think I am going to order an additional remote trans cooler too.

harleydragon - I think I am going to try to fit it in with the stock manifolds....all that can happen is it not fit. LOL.

CAJUN YJ - I am going to try to use an adj. reg. first, I think it should work. I have a buddy that used a similar application in a chevy truck and it works great.
06-30-2013 06:17 AM
kywaterman I ended up going the same route as you Blake, bought a th400 and 241 so thats what I'll be using as well. What radiator did you go with?
06-30-2013 05:20 AM
CAJUN YJ Yea I don't c a prob with that. As long as the regulator is set right. I think the factory pump puts out enuff volume to keep a 350 goin at wot. My ol jeep was carbd. So I didn't have a choice but to get a fuel pump lol.
