Did I mention that I added Procomp 4" lift brake lines?

Well, I decided to do this MC upgrade, and here is the tech article that inspired it for your reference.

Support Groups for Jeepaholics - Ford E-350 Master Cylinder swap into YJ

Here are the Procomp lines that I have. They are DOT approved. Got them at 4wd.

Brake Line Kit by Pro Comp and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware

Today so far I have sanded, degreased most of, and painted the clutch and brake assembly. I also cleaned up the Brake Booster mount and painted it. Today sometime we should have it all bolted in. The front wiring harness under the dash was also screwed in to the firewall. Things are moving now.

I did also add the washer nozzles to the cowl and used black RTV to seal the cowl at the assembly and screw holes.

Here's some new pics.

The installed Brake Booster reman'd from Advance Auto Parts. MC from a E350 Ford Motor Home as modified above. The Evaporative Canister is back on, notable since the bracket was so bad I considered getting a newer one until I went to work on it with POR-15. The brake lines are a set from Inline Tube via 4wd.



The install of the dash components has started. The harness is sitting above the brake mount. The connector and internal fuse box has been added. The red heater control cable has been remounted. The brake mount has been painted as well as the front bracket that you see screwed to the cowel with 2 shiny bolts on the top part. That part gets messy, so I decided to sand the rust and paint it also.

Note the E brake was installed first, and the cable reinstalled through the floor.



You can say the accelerator is almost to the floor on the rebuild. I painted that whole bracket also, and have already reconnected the throttle cable to the cowl. Test pulls on the wire for the fun of it have yielded movement on the throttle body. I am getting excited.

OH almost forgot. The hoses from the valve cover. One as you know goes to the air filter box, the other to the manifold vacuum. The problem the last engine had was some oil back INTO those lines. They both need to be inspected and cleaned prior to reinstall or replacement.

I had to soak both in gasoline and use a snake tool to scrub them out. The oil gets caked in and doesn't come out easy. I also used a can of carb cleaner on them until about an hour later they finally were clean and not caked.

You can see if you have the same problem by pulling the air box and looking for oil on your filter or oozing or caking at the top of the canister where the CCV hose connects.

I've had oil caked in the whole air box assembly. I tried to clean that crap up but only got so far with hot water and a scratch pad.

Also quick question, how is the charcoal evap hooked up? I saw mine the other day is hooked to the airbox and air manifold fine, but there's a rubber line just hanging off down under the frame by the engine. What is that supposed to connect to?

The line that connects to the left side of the canister connects to a hose that might be the rubber line you describe. That short hose connect to what looks like a brake line, but really goes to the vents on the top of your gas tank. Three hoses come off the tank. Fuel to engine and pressure return hook to the manifold fuel rail, the third vapor line comes off the top of the tank as the smaller of the three hoses, goes to a stainless steel brake line look alike, and then a short hose hanging off the bottom of the cowl in front of the driver.

I'll snap a pic and attach in about an hour or less.

I would suggest that if that hose was disconnected that you go back towards the tank, find the smallest hose that leads to the smallest steel line and blow air back towards the engine through it before connecting to the canister since you may have gotten junk in it.

Photos of canister below.

I have my fingers touching the line in question.

Thanks! I dropped the gas tank a few weeks ago, then when poking around underneath I found part of that line just hanging from the canister (Only about 8 inches of it exist now, so I'll just be putting a new line all together) and was all "o hay, that must be what connects to the gas tank", just needed confirmation.

Thanks!

Take the box off, and soak it in carb cleaner and gas with a wire brush. Then pull your valve cover outlets and do same to those elbows. Then look in the holes in the valve cover. If they are caked full, I would pull the cover and clean those ports out the same way, without unscrewing them from the inside. I blasted them clean with a few cans of carb cleaner and a few pipe cleaners. I then soaked the whole cover inside with parts cleaner bath and some carb cleaner and a wire brush set on the end of a drill.

For extra fun tonight, I changed a E-brake drum pad on the Ford 8.8 WITHOUT removing the axle.

Tomorrow I will get more time to do the other side, and take photos of how it's done.

sort of a before and after shot to tease your senses....






Took about 15 minutes of me figuring it out and working alone. Brake spoon, spring spreader and needle nose required, as well as gloves and brake cleaner.

IT CAN BE DONE!!! You can do it. As stated before, I am NOT a mechanic. I am however reading, using Jeep Forum and other sources, and using Haynes, and the best part....the FOUR PART FSM SERIES for the 91 Jeep that I found on ebay buy it now for $45.





Take the plunge!!!
