I have the rubber flex hoses on at the moment. Once I'm happy with the setup in the engine compartment I'll probably switch to something better. My current struggle is fuel lines. 5/16th on the feed and return Jeep side. 5/16th and 3/8th on the fuel rail. Trying to balance function with cost at this point.
I believe it was around $340 for all the parts, and i pieced it all together from jegs and local speed shop. First you lay it out and figure out what you need, then order everything and then you assembly it all.
Can be a pain in the *** but it does look great when its done. If you go that route let me know i can help you out.
Do something! Even if it is wrong, Do something!
Wow. That looks great! I guess I'll start pricing that out myself. There's still a voice in the back of my head saying, "You're only gonna do it once, spend the money and get what you want". But it's getting a little quieter. I need to get this thing started to boost my enthusiasm. Cheers!
Builders, quick question. I'm finishing up the wiring and I'm trying to figure out PCM power. Where did the old PCM get its switched power from? My new PCM and harness hooks up to the battery direct, but it also needs to be told via the ignition when it's time to fire, start and run position. Any suggestions on a good spot to pull from?
It's taken entirely too long but here's the first fire of the motor. Really happy. No smoke, runs strong and settles into a nice idle. A bit nervous this being a salvage but so far everything looks great. Taking the water pump off to find a leak then I can start testing gauges and putting the dash back together. Summer's here, gotta get this thing done.
Ready for the off road park tomorrow. Time to break some of this junk I just put together. It's been a great project....I think? Went way over budget, went way over on time and probably was top of the list of gripes my woman had before she left. But, it all happens for a reason. New girlfriend loves it. Go get muddy!
