The picture with the mount and bolt length was taken with the bolt being held with only a couple threads. It wasnt holding anything but itself.

The actual mount will be approximately 1 inch lower. Although jeff daniels recommends mounting the mounts towards the top of the bolt to help absorb vibrations.

The pictures truly dont do the actual mounts justice. They are beefy, although your concern has made me consider putting triangle piece of steel in the front and back of the frame side mounts.

Tonight i was able to get the mounts tacked in and the engine test fitted. I couldnt be happier with how they turned out. Tomorrow i plan on finish welding the mounts and then start on the clutch.

Now if i could turn this damn t.v. off. Hatfiels and McCoys are on the history channel.

Okay guys. I made some more progress on the jeep. I have my engine mounts all welded up. I know a guy who works with the local natural gas company. He welds the steel pipes together that are under ground . He suggested that i make three passes of welds. First. Pass down the middle and the second and third down each side of the first weld.

It worked out nicely. My welds are nothing to write home about but u am sure they are plentu strong .

After i did the welds i moved onto the clutch. After cleaning the flywheel i test fitted the clutch. Well the darn clutch tool needed to be turned down on the end in order to securely fit into the flywheel centering hole. So after doing that the tool fit right in and the clutch went went on pretty simple .

Now to the throw out bearing. I am bot really sure about how this goes. Gonna have to start reading.. hopefully engine will be bolted in for good tonight.

Maybe this was covered but I cannot remember cause I read this thread in three seprate sittings but what coils are you going to go with up front? Are you going to have to have some made or are there some that fit that will take the extra weight? Or are you going to make something fit?

Also I really love this build. I am a diesel guy. I am sad I don't dd one. Someday though, maybe I can use this as a guide! Keep up the good work and the updates!

Okay guys i have gotten a lot done since the last post. First off lets answer some questions..

The clutch is a centerforce heavy duty ford clutch. The throw out bearing that i was concerned with is completely fine.

I am sticking with my rough country coils right now. Actually the jeep sits no lower now with the engine in as it did before. I may buy a set or 4 inch springs and a long arm down the road. I have a feeling that my up travel may be limited because of the motor mounts. Absolutely nothing i can do about that now until i drive it and see what happens.

Now with the updates.

I got the engine all bolted up with the clutch installed.

As you can see in the picture i had my intake mocked up. I am using a 3 inch mild steel pipe with a 180 bend. I am going to use a Spectre inline airbox which will draw truly cold air from inside the cowling. I then plan on running a cowl scoop.

With the intake mocked up i decided to mount the a c condensor. Well the ac mount caused major interference between the compressor and intake pipe.

So we decided to space the ac mount out 1 3/4 inches to eliminate the interference. The ac mount mounts to the water neck on the thermostat housing with three bolts. Well while tightening the bolts the rear and ear on the housing split and broke off. AWESOME. The following pictures are our fix. I used two pieces of 1/8plate welded together. Drilled and tapped for the bolts to screw into. Then drilled the housing holes out larger.

As you can see i have plenty room now for my intake pipe.
