I just picked up a brake line kit for my YJ, and from I now understand, they bend one line so It can be shipped easier.

How do I bend it back without putting a kink in it..

Can't seem to find the part number for a Lokar Floor shifter, which I want to mate to my TF999..

Anyone have it?

Thanks!

How's this swap going I'm in the exact same process. I got my new 4.0 in yesterday and doing some tranny seals and hoping to have the trans in on Wednesday.
I'm sticking with the column shifter though

Here's my train of thought on what you're doing: You have the head off and are sending it out to be cleaned and inspected, may as well get some new lifters in there and why not some healthy new valve seals and valve springs? If you're getting new seals and springs - and since you'll have the front cover off to do the timing set - you may as well just toss a cam in there. A nice mild torque pig cam, nothing crazy. If you're doing a cam you should probably do injectors, and if your injectors are upgraded there's no point to keeping a lame factory fuel pump....
This all coming from a man who set out to do a simple engine swap and landed up with a race motor and a full frame off restoration haha


EDIT: I just realized that OP's post was from like a year and a half ago, please disregard my (less than) temporary insanity.
