awesome pics of the mounts. much better views than the other thread we saw. maybe you can find the power steering bracket off a similar motor that i am using. it pulls the pump much closer to the block than the one you are using.

your bracket here


the belt setup on the zj


just trying to help.
thx again for the replies

Ah the cash for clunkers green spray paint, gotta love that huh?

I considered that but the only one I could find didnt have a reservoir attached and I couldnt find one in the yard to replace it so I just went with the one I could find. It works, I can fit a finger between it and the steering shaft with no problems and it worked out having the motor shifted that inch to the passenger side. It also made finding a belt easier, as there wasnt an option listed for ZJ w/out AC and an AC belt wouldnt have fit. With my setup I ordered one for a 93 Dakota (3.9,5.2 doesnt matter) and it went on like it belonged.

I just sold my 4 banger for $250 (sold the trans for $300 couple weeks ago) so I am already half way refunded on my investment. Tomorrow I am going out to find out which sensor is giving me fits and I am driving it home come h@ll or high water lol.

no c.f.c auto here. it was a daily driver that a friends mom wrecked like a week before i got it. he needed the tins and interior from it and i wanted everything else (not bad for $150 huh?). actually it's the dye inside the a/c refrigerant to help you find leaks. i was told it was discharged, well just before this picture was taken i learned otherwise. i will be leaving the compressor there for conversion to oba.

Well, drove it home. Other than a radiator hose producing a magical hole in it and pissing all the coolant out within 5 miles and the fuel pump losing its prime under deceleration and cornering the ride was quite pleasant. I am very pleased with the power I get out of it and once I get the bugs worked out of it I know it will be a fun and reliable powerplant.

Look for wiring write up info in a few days!

Well, I deserve the dumba$$ of the month award for sure! I used an O2 sensor and associated plug that I spliced into the wiring from a Grand Cherokee. Wired it wrong so it thought it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay lean. I dont think I damaged anything as it only got about 3 miles put on it since I got it running and it runs really well now, with only a slight stutter at idle and I think that is from low oil pressure letting a lifter bleed down.
Oh well, all is good. I am going to drive it to work tomorrow and home and see how she does. A short jaunt this afternoon gave me good promise.

Still trying to get the tach to function, so far no response from it.
Jeep is running better and better, only a slight part-throttle lag to work out of it (probably TPS) and then just an issue of it not liking to run after downshifting to a stop. Probably because I am running an automatic PCM with a manual transmission and it doesnt like it. I might need to make it think its in Neutral all the time so it can adjust to varying load conditions on its own.

Here is an update pic of my now daily driver 5.2 Magnum powered YJ!:

Wow, that looks like it fits better than the 4.0 |6 does! You're lucky you live in a state where you could use an older engine (cheaper); here I'd have to find a newer fuel-injected engine to use.

Technically it is a newer engine, The heads and intake/fuel system are from a 96 Dodge Ram (only the block itself is old school LA small block). It has MPFI. It is an OBDII system, which means when I get around to it I can hook up an OBD plug in the Jeep and do an emission test that way instead of the sniffer test. It will also make troubleshooting much much easier.

Ah okay... I can't spot the fuel injection system and those type of air filters usually are used on carbed engines. Had me fooled.

Not a shroud, its a stock 4 banger radiator with the popular 96 Taurus electric fan (car with the 3.8, not the 3.0). It seems to keep its cool now, just gotta see what its like when the weather gets hot.

I tried using the stock air cleaner but the hose would shrink by at least a couple inches when the throttle was blipped so that was a no-go. It moved enough air that you could take the top off the air cleaner and lift it off and the filter would stay in the top portion. A gentle tug would free it up so it wasnt glued, just enough air moving through it to hold it up. I went with that because it was cheap, and is washable and can be recharged like the K&N filters. It is basically just in place til I decide what to do, although I may just run it as its supposed to flow over 1150 CFM.

Very good work and very informative. I have a 87 without an engine and a 96 5.2 from a dodge 1500 Auto setting in my garage. Been looking for info on how to do this.
