Up date time! So my engine started to sag a bit,turns out I tore my motor mount for installing it up side down,I was going to press the sleeve out and turn it around as soon as I got close to being done.but didn't get around to it.so I had to buy another motor mount from Jamie the cummins guy.came back to the shop pressed the old one out and the new one in,an turned it around.

Sagging drives side on lecturing and what it should look like on the right

Ripped!

Pressing it out

Putting new one in turned 90 degrees.

Much better!!

Then I started on my fuel lines and tanks here's a picture of my fuel pump that went bad and the reason I started this build.if this hadn't of failed I might not have started this project.any ways the green arrow was my original electric pick up tube,took the electric motor out and this will now be my return line for the cummins..the red arrow was the original return line,but now its my pick up tube for the cummins.thought this would be much easier to swap these two then to make an fab a pick up tube,and return line..my fuel gauge works so ill be reusing that.

Here's the tank before and after paint

Bought a drop pitman ARM but it was for the Dana 30 tie rod.not the Dana 44.turns out Dana 44s have bigger tie rod ends,so I bought a 7.15-1.5 per foot reamer from jegs.an had my grandfather who's a machinist help me out. Here's some pics of it.

Dana 44 tie rod joint,don't fit

No one probably ever has changed that fluid actually. I had an old 84 Suzuki motorcycle and the MC looked like that inside when I got into after buying it.

Great build man!

You are going to love that thing!! I cant wait to get mine back on the road.

Check out my build thread! It may give you some ideas.

My only reccomendation is an intercooler, especially if you plan to make some power out of it.

Dont put your return line there. I put mine there and I could not keep it from pissing air into the tank. I tried extending it also. I had to put it in the neck so it could roll down the filler tube and let the air get out of the fuel before it hits the fuel in the tank. There is alot of air in the fuel from the pump in the return line and it just amplifies the air in the tank the longer you run it.

I had my tank down three times before I decided to do it like that.

The air in the lines would make it hard to start after sitting all night.

I have a p pump so you may or may not have the same return pressure.

Also when its like you have it in the pic when you get low on fuel it is pissing the fuel and air mix right at the pick up and makes it ten times as bad mine would start running rough when I got below a 1/4 of a tank.


Is that pinion bearing gona get lube up to it running that much angle?

Thanks alot.ill go back and change that when I get the chance..and I'm not sure I put a little more fluid then needed.hopping it might help a little,the picture makes it look like more of an angle then it is..even if it is a bit high,how big of a problem is that.and is there anything to fix it?

Worked a bunch this week got a lot done.unfortunately my phone camera is not taking pics like it should,they are really blurry.so didn't get to take any good pics of what I've done.ill up load some,just got to get around to getting the camera out and setting at the computer..ok so had some problems with clutch it was way to stiff and short,had a guy named stev'o come out and look at the jeep.he told me my master cyl ARM was at a weird angle,so I straightened that out,and it works a little better now,then got the rest of my wiring done,intake air filter fabd up.radiator brackets made and installed.radiator hoses connected,front spring perch welded,shift boot and floor plate made up..so I've basically only got,shifter,front drive shaft,bleed brakes,put rear shocks on,and throw the fenders on intill I get some tube fenders..other than that its ready to roll some coal.! Test driving it Monday or Tuesday.ill keep you updated.here's one pic that wasn't to blurry.

As long as you fill hole is at or above the bearing you should be ok. I had one with so much angle that I had to put a fill hole higher up on the diff cover to get it at the same height as the bearing,
