When I took apart the '88 XJ, I took virtually everything that was required or necessary. I even took the switch for the tranny option "power/economy".

That just may come in handy! I think I will take you up on that, if you don't mind.

Last night, I went through some more of the wiring. I now have a conversion chart started. Sometimes, after some time of looking at the spaghetti mess, my eyes start to hurt and my mind starts to go loopy.

Thanks! I feel, honored! (Butterflies in stomach). There are other build threads on here that are more advanced than mine is, I merely started on someone elses project and took it over. Of course I have twice the work to do, I am still figuring out what the P.O. had done in order to procede from there.

Once I get this Jeep to running state, I will be able to do what I want as far as lifts and accessories. Who knows what I can do with a chop saw, a welder and some tubing.

I spent some time on the Basket Case over the weekend. I managed to get two new u-joints installed and the rear drive shaft is in! It is a little longer than I first expected. To compensate, I will probably just remove the rear axle, drill a new hole on the perch, and relocate the axle back by 3/4" to 1". I figure that M.O.R.E. sell these predrilled with three holes, I can modify mine.

I worked on the wiring, made some good progress too! Tshark299 sent me some wiring schematics. I compared them to what I had and to my conversion list. I was missing only a couple wires, not bad for a Chiltons manual. His wiring also included the correct(?) diagram to identify the wire terminal cavities. I used it to compare my findings. I liked Tshark299's diagram better. It simplified the cavity search on the termainal transfer. I will have a diagram with wire colors and locations in the next week or so.

I also did manage to locate a locking C clip for the transmission shift cable adjustment. I have it set and it shifts through with no problems!

Coming this week, I will follow the orange wire to the fuel tank and see if it terminates at the fuel sender or of it is unused. I located an empty relay plug under the dash with an orange wire. (The orange wire was typically used for the 2.5L four popper fuel pump). This wire will be what is used for the new electric fuel pump.

I'm glad the diagrams helped

On my Jeep, the cavity in the bulkhead connector for the fuel pump was wired all the way back to the connector at the tank. I had a third wire for the fuel pump on the vehicle-side of the sending unit connector, but no third wire on the factory sending unit.

The fuel pump wire coming from the fuel pump relay in the PDC I connected to cavity B4 in the bulkhead connector, which send power right back to the tank. I dropped the tank and swapped out my sending unit for a '91-'95 sending unit with fuel pump, plugged it right in to the harness, and it worked fine.

I also made this list recently of all the connections I made in the engine compartment for my swap... see if it helps you out:

When the yard work is commenced I will take a look and compare them. Thanks again.

I had a hunch that the orange wire did not terminate. I will change it accordingly to be controlled by the PDC, this should simplify things a bit, keep it clean and factory looking.

I am sorry for being away for much of the week. I have made little progress on my Jeep. I did manage to receive my package in the mail from a forum member who I bought the gauge cluster from. I managed to steal some time to install it. Pics are coming soon.

Thanks to "the adventure in dash removal" thread provided by 91wrangleryj,
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/a...emoval-998993/
I discovered that I had two connectors for the idiot light panel.

(I borrowed this pic from 91wrangleryj) There are two of these plugs, one on each side. Since mine came unassembled, I had to figure it out the hard way.

Thank you, 91wrangleryj for your thread on Adventures in dash removal.


I will be needing the rest of the dash, including the fascia panel, the map pocket, glove box and the grab bar.

Hopefully, Iwill get some free time to get my wiring block diagram compared to tTshark299's diagrams. (Thanks again Tshark299 for your diagrams and help).

My time has been limited for the last couple weeks. I finally managed to get the tank out. My 10yo daughter was the under carriage specialist.
jeep-wrangler-progress-4-26-2010-008.jpg

The good news is, when I upgrade to the electric fuel pump assy. I will already have the fuel pump wire. All I will need to do is make sure that it is connected at the bulkhead connector.
jeep-wrangler-progress-4-26-2010-013.jpg

I needed to see what the fuel tank capacity was, if it was either a 15 gallon or a 20 gallon. It is a 20 g. Unfortunately, it has a leak. Devcon makes a product that will work on sealing polypropylene tanks. I will have to locate this or a similar product. Either that or order up a new tank.

It seems lately that for every two steps forward I make, I lose a step backwards. I am sure that I have it lucky compared to others who are performing the same operations as I am.

I have heard that before, but I am not willing to take a temporary solution to a long term repair. I may just go ahead and order a new tank.
