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.

Back on it!
Ok, I'm back on it. Got side tracked...the Tracker quit and its too dam cold out to work on so I had to get my daughter another ride.
I just placed an order with Jegs, header collectors, air cleaner, power steering bracket, radiator hoses and a new hat!
Time to get back to work.... and take pictures.....

|daddyjeep||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.|

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)

|kywaterman||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.|
|12-19-2013 07:06 PM|
|daddyjeep||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.|

|Scooby88||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.|
|12-17-2013 06:39 PM|
|daddyjeep||SCOOBY DOOO...WHERE ARE YOU??? Sorry guys, I couldn't resist. Scoob hasn't updated in a while.|

|WICruiser||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.|

|kywaterman||Its all the little things that take time, glade to see your still working on it.|

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...

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?

|Scooby88||Daughters off to college, son is back to school as a freshman AND the wife is back to work! Pulled the motor and gonna check and see if I messed up the trans this week.|

Got my daughter off to college yesterday and the wife goes back to work in 2 weeks . Living off my income alone really puts the build in slowmo.....

|BlackCJ||Nice work starting to buy parts for mine now picking a 302 motor today looking for a C-4 trans keep the pics coming|

The build with my son
He had ear surgery and has to wear this for another week so I added some bling....
|07-27-2013 10:23 PM|
|kywaterman||That sucks man. Hopefully it ends up being an easy fix.|
|07-27-2013 07:37 PM|
|ChicoJeepy||Ohhhhhhhh I love Jeeps.... Not so much for problems|
|07-27-2013 05:36 PM|
Everything has to come out
Well I screwed up. I was trying to bolt the torque converter to the pressure plate and I can't turn the converter. This means I didn't have it Installed properly.
I'm told if that's the case I probably damaged the pump. This means everything must come out. and

|kywaterman||How'd the hoses work for you?|
|07-18-2013 06:46 PM|
Just an update
It's been really slow on the build. My son had surgery on his ear and now I'm spending time with him recovering. I have been doing research on what radiator hoses I need, NAPA # 7470 an 7575 seem to be what I need...I'll find out this weekend.
