Started on the tear down tonight of the donor truck. It is drive by wire. Read few builds but still unsure which transfer case to look for. You mentioned late 80s early 90s chevy pick up one. I would only need Novaks adapter ? http://www.advanceadapters.com/produ...onadapter-kit/
From what i read best to sell manual transfer case out of the donor truck? that correct?
Won't load the website on my mobile for some reason but I didn't think you needed an aftermarket ad adapter for the 241. Is that the same as the stock one but it's machined for a VSS? If so then that sounds right.
Edit: yeah that looks good but you are already halfway to buying the adapter to use your current transfer case. Basically the same kit but a 2 piece that will bolt up to the 231. And it comes with a 27 spline input gear.
so I stripped parts truck and scrapped it. So far have got 625 of my 1000 back from the deal. Still need sell some part.
ALso got drivetrain out of the jeep Friday night. Next project clean garage and take front clip off jeep, then put on jack stands and start on the lift. Bds leaf springs and bilstien 5100 shocks. ALso start on getting 8.8 ready.
While im working on lift like to get parts ordered. Figured 1st order be motor mounts, sye and trans/tc adapter.
Do not use that transmission mount. I thought that was the one to use as well until I got it and the plate doesnt even fit between the 2 adapter pieces. I called and they told me to use this one http://www.advanceadapters.com/produ...mission-mount/ The website is a little misleading huh?
On the motor mounts, you basically said it. The Novak mounts are pretty foolproof but the AA mounts are a lot more versatile. I have been told that the Novak mounts have quite a bit of adjustability but I don't know how much. The AAs are only adjustable frome side to side.
I ordered the adapter and sye for AA but been over a week and nothing has been shipped. I ordered tranny mount and AA motor mounts from summit since was cheaper and no shipping. Looks like I will have to return trans mount for right one. Also ordered aussie lockers for front and rear. Now waiting for next check to get the chromoly shafts for the dana 30 then I can give my buddy the axle to regear and install new parts in. Also collecting suspension parts. Slowly making progress.
I'll grab some pics tomorrow but I just ordered some 3/8 fuel line from Summit and used compression fittings to hook them up around the t case area. Kept the Chevy lines to hook up to. Then ran it back to the pump. Used the old Jeep supply for the new return.
any luck on gas line pics? Got axles dropped off should have dana 30 back sat or sunday. Found out need a new carrier for it to run 456. another cost wasn't expecting. Got new brake rotors front and back and I think everything to hang suspension and get axles in here next week or two. Also dropping motor off to get broken exhaust bolts pulled out. Also got email finally from adavanced. Adapter should be shipped on 13th. better late then never.
I just ran home and snapped a couple of pics. Like I said I used the stock Vortec lines from the fuel rail and cut them where they transition to soft lines. I used Earls fittings from Summit Racing (-6 AN to 3/8) to hook up to the fuel filter then the same fitting to new 3/8 line stopping where the original ones did. before I got my fuel cell I just went to the hardware store and got a 3/8 compression to barb fitting. I used regular worm drive hose clamps and they didn't leak but I would recommend FI clamps.
The stock YJ supply line is 5/16 and so is the Vortec return, just use the Jeep supply as a return and run new supply line from the t case back to the tank. You don't even have to drop the tank to hook them up.
You could always figure out what type of fitting is on the Vortec fuel rail and go with all new stuff. I just used the Vortec lines because I had them and they were already pre-bent to the contour of the engine/trans. I've seen people use the twist lock stuff from Summit. You could always give them a call and see if they can help you put together a kit.
