I'm a long way out before that happens. I'm just a very big fan of diesel engines, and want they offer to our sport. Great low end power and fuel mileage.

Above are the pictures os my engine as i prepare to fix the KILLER DOWL PIN. Sounds so terrible, and certainly can be if this little guy falls into the gears.

Here is a picture of what cummins came up with to keep the dowl pin where it should be.

I put some red lock tight on the bolt and sunk it home. Then used a screw driver and hammer to make sure the tab wss securely seated.

I used a rust preventer primer and two coats of color.

I plan on putting everything back together tomorrow morning and will post more pictures then. The only thing left to do now is find a stainless steel pressure feed line to the turbo and a oil drain line, also have to cut the old drain tube where it mounts to the turbo becuase it hits my exhaust manifold. Prolly gonns start on a down pipe while I have the motor out also.

Think it will be done by Jeff Daniels jeep show this year? And I just wanted to say I personally have had Sean and dan do work on my jeep and they are extremely knowledgable and helpfull. Especially when it comes to diesel swaps.

Jeepwrangler89, I am trying to get it ready by the Jeep show. Off the top of my head I think the show is Sept. 22ish !?! that gives me a little under two months. I feel like it should be done, but we all know how things go. I am planning on going if its done.

I have nothing but good things to say about Jeff Daniles crew. I believe they are honest, hard working men. We need more USA companies like them.

One of the final things to do was remove the oil pan to make sure the dent from shipping didnt damage the oil pick up.

I am pretty happy with it. I may get out my hammer and dolly set tomorrow. I have to go to Cummins tomorrow to get an oil pan gasket.

Crawled.

Waiting and wishing for my funds to start falling into place so I can do my own swap one day. The old YJ has 234k on that 4.0. It's going to need to be pulled eventually.

Okay so I have a few more updates.

This morning i went to cummins and got the oil pan gasket and stopped and got some VHT flat black paint for my manifold.

I cleaned up the oil pan and laid new paint and also cleaned the manifold and painted it.

I still need to bake the manifold to cure the ceramic in the paint and clean the old oil pan gasket from the block. I also have to clean my oil pick up tube. It was not clogged but had nasty oil gummin up some holes..

Next after that is thermostat and then the down pipe. Gonna make just a short one since i am gona run a 4 inch stack out of the passenger side fender.. it will exit where the arb snorkel exits or very close..

While i have the oil pan off i inspected best i could the inside of the engine. I couldnt be happier. The cyclinder bores look fantastic.. almost like they have just been honned. The crank looks great really everything did.

Last night i was able to bake the VHT paint and then install the manifold for the final time. I also got the oil pan and gasket reinstalled. Tonight i am gonna work on the oil return line from the turbo to the oil pan. And because the motor looks so good now i am going to remove my valve covers and repaint those.
