Yet another thing ugh!! My brand new autometer clock doesn't work. I have to call autometer on Monday to see what they have to say. That is just great cuz that means i have to tear the dash back out!

Well got the tbi rebuilt and installed, and it doesn't leak. Also relocated the coil so my new air cleaner will fit. But back to another problem... I went to crank the thing over and nothing. Also i don't have power to things( like gauges). I tied into wires that were ignition power(from wiring diagrams) but somewhere along the lines the wires are no longer connected to the ignition. So tomorrows job is to figure out how to get the power back.

Subscribed. My 700r4 tranny died and I'm converting the keep back to 5 speed. Found a donor nv3500 w/ tcase out of a 98 Chevy 1500. Just curious to see how you do things with the drive train.

Only thing is u are going to have a 241t case and the sye for them are not cheap!! An update, got things to make power steering lines, also got my ignition wiring fixed( no ground to relay). So i tried to start it but have no spark or fuel.. Have to check some things tonight. Also i may have to shim the starter, it is a little noisy.

Do you have the command track system still? If so can you re use the jeep vacuum switch? Also I have been tying to see if I can use a mechanical speedo (don't want to replace auto meter speedo)

i am not sure i havent got mine hooked up. but the throw out fork is on the pass side not like the jeep. im not sure if i can get another hose to run to the pass side or not. i may have to buy a chevy master cyl. i already have a chevy slave cyl but idk of the line's fittings will match up... on another note IT RUNS!!!!! lol the issue was the electric spark control module was not fassened down and it is grounded through the screws. i had to adjust the distributor because it was wayoff! but she fires up and sounds mean with the block huggers!

Filled the t case with fluid and started cleaning up some wires.. It is a huge relief knowing it runs!!!

Would you mind taking a picture of your shifter location inside the cab? I'm trying to get an idea of where it's going to come out. If you could take a measurement from the fire wall to the shifter (inside cab) that would be awesome. Thanks dude!

My bad, I forgot I saw those pics when I first read your thread. Thanks for the help. Just want you to know I'm not trying to hijack your thread I just happen to be doing a lot of the same things you are so I am being curious george. Also my computer is dead so I'm following everything through my phone. If you have any questions about the swap (engine and wiring) send them my way. Again thanks for the help. CHEERS!

I saw u wanted a pic of dual exhaust. Here is mine. I got the shorty headman headers. I think the 700r and np207 shouldn't be far off from the nv3500/np241 as far as clearances for your exhaust routing.

i measured from the front of the tunnel cover to the shifter and it is 7 inches. in my opinion it is perfectly placed because it is right in the middle, and it is about even between the dash and console for the shifter throw( which is very short). a question for the guys running duals, do u have a crossover anywhere for the 2 pipes to intersect. i always thought it was better to have an "x pipe" tied in somewhere?

No 'H' or 'X' pipe here. It helps even the exhaust pulse pressure, but you aren't building a drag car or circle track car. You should be just fine with the duals. If you really want to, run a home made pipe across the 2. Just make sure you can get it apart to get the exhaust out to drop the trans/case as needed
