I am very satisfied with the performance and glad I did the swap. I'm doing another one this weekend on a 4cyl, hope it goes just as good in the end since I know exactly what needs to be done now. I appreciate evryones help and as far as the motor goes for anyone reading or interested, the flywheel from a 1987-1990 cherokee motor will not work for 1991 through 1995 ecm and harness save yourself the trouble and get a 92-94 motor and harness and make sure at the bulkhead connector you don't have a purple and white braided wire, this is a clear indication that the harness and ecm have a security system and cannot be used
those just have to be tied together to make them to work.

The vss is just a pass through for the the cable side. Will it screw on where it comes out of the TC?

The cable output of the 91 VSS is 5/8" instead of 7/8". Your options are to order a '91 YJ speedometer cable that has the 5/8" at the T-case end, or use an adapter.

Adapters can be found at the junkyard in early (pre-'91) YJs and XJs that have cruise control. The speed sensor for the cruise computer on those vehicles is located behind the dash, inline with the speedo cable, about a foot from the gauges. That speed sensor uses 5/8" thread on one end, so there will be an adapter from the factory that connects it to the vehicle's 7/8" cable. The one time I tried to get one though, the cable was so rusty that I couldn't get the adapter out without destroying it... you might have better luck though.

Also, you can call up www.speedometersolutions.com and order a 5/8" to 7/8" adapter for like 6 bucks.

Great Thread! Just finishing up my 4.2 to 4.0 head and MPI swap. Have some questions about the wiring, but need to dive in a little more first.
