I thought about an H pipe. I was thinking a cross over in front of the gas tank. Just make sure you get it made where it can unbolt or come apart or you will never get it off. The true duals work just fine though.

today i got the power steering lines bent and installed. cost me a whole $20 also, where the front grill center mount is, mine was half rusted through. so a welded a washer in so there was something there. got the grill and the rad mounted in. i have 5 1/2 inches between the rad and front of the water pump, i guess that is plenty. but anyway, it is coming together. i cleaned some more wires up and also removed the coolant overflow jug( the new rad has the fill on the opposite side) have to get another one to mount of the pass side. one things im still not sure of is for the slave cyl. i have to go to the parts store and see how a Chevy line looks and what ends they have.

got a little more done today. i relocated the factory expansion tank because im too cheap to buy a new one!! it isnt too bad of a fit. also got the autometer clock so i had to tear the dash back out to put it in. it works now!! installed the glove box for the 3rd time! and tied up some more wires. i need to find a good spot to mount this little guy too. i cant really go much farther with the dash until i make a trip to radio shack for some indicator lights. also today has been a month from when i started this swap!!!

So I think that I might have a solution to our master cylinder problem. I have read around that our master is not up to par for the slave. I'm still doing more research to find out exactly what bore size we will need. I'm thinking 1". Here is the compact design that will bolt up to the fire wall and still have room for the booster.

well this post is for anyone thinking about doing a sbc swap. i was looking through just the receipts that i have( i dont have a lot of them) and my total so far is over $2500 doing a swap is not cheap!!!! so this should deter about 1/4 of the people asking how involved a swap is (people dont just have thousands of dollars laying around). also keep in mind i didnt have to buy a trans or t case as i had the truck i got them from. just thought i would put this up and show what a swap cost..

also to 87 tpi i am going to try this first
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/h...-slave-839960/
i drilled and tapped the fitting tonight. if u do this, be careful. in the pic his is perfectly centered. on mine the nipple was not centered and when i drilled it to 5/16 to tap it, it almost was offset to one side to far and make one side VERY thin. i will take a pic of mine tomorrow and put up but is is pretty much the same as in the thread.

I got my dash installed but I'm not to happy with the drivers side dash. It is squished and the center cover is sticking out. I'm trying to figure out how to get the cover to stay back. 2 sided tape isn't strong enough. I will post pics tonite. Also got my rad house adapter

I remember having the same problem with mine. It's doesn't do it now. I believe I trimmed a little off the right side of it. Try loosening the screws on the center gauge pod. Then tighten down the driver side first. It will settle a little bit.
