Well I finiished it all up on friday afternoon. I have more pics but havent had time to gt them off the camera yet. The wiring wasn' that bad, just took a while to figure out how to incorporate it all. I was able to use the factory sending units which allowed me to keep the stock gauges. I also was able to mount the factory dodge fuel pump to the jeep sending unit and mounted the complete setup in the factory tank. While the tank was out I did the 20 gal mod, and when I filled up I put 18 gal in it. I was able to source the throttle cable, fuses, and relays from the van keepin the cost low. Here is a rundown of the cost.
Motor $0 donated by my father
Dakota Transmission and flywheel $125
Custom made pilot bearing $ 40
Oil cap and fluids $ 20
Oil, filter, antifreeze $ 50
For anyone considering this swap it helps out alot to get the whole vehicle the motor came from, because of all the incidentals involved. We were able to use the exhaust pipe from the van to fabricat the one for the jeep. If I had to purchase everything that it eventually needed it would have costed well over $1500 for everything. It runs beautifull now and since my new top wil be here in a couple of days, it will become my DD. I will try to post the rest of the pics in a day or two.
