So today i feel like i got a lot done. I got my valve covers stripped and painted. I am happy with how they turned out.

After that i had some running around to do like get the ac unit drained pick up my body lift and parts for my down pipe.



forumrunner_20120806_222825.jpg



forumrunner_20120806_222838.jpg

As you can see i got my v flange from Jegs as well as a 2 1/2 exhaust pipe in a j shape.

I cut the j pipe directly in the middle of the curve. However when i did that the flange didnt fit right. Apparently 2 1/2 inches isnt that in a bend it was more like 2 3/8. So i just an extra straight piece and welded in it in



forumrunner_20120806_223502.jpg

That piece was a little long so i cut it down and did a test fit.



forumrunner_20120806_223747.jpg

I like the way it looked so i finished burning it in

I still plan on cutting the down pipe and putting another bend in it so it stay closer to the engine. I also started cleaning my bellhousing

Greasy is not a strong enough word for how badly caked with grease this bellhousing is. I am going to take it to a local machine shop and have them soak it in their parts cleaner for a day or more . I also got started on taking the jeep apart. Front bumper and the majority of the grill bolts out.



forumrunner_20120806_224537.jpg


Tomorrow i plan on taking out the grill and get the engine ready to pull.

DUDE! I've only read about this being done but have never had the pleasure of watching it happen!

In reference to your snorkel idea: Instead of trying to track down an ARB, have you considered at all the H1 hummer style intake mod that runs through your cowl? If you do a search on here it should come up. For TJ guys like yourself, it's quite simple because your cowl is detachable.

Cheers!

Hey don't be to fast to fix your exhaust pipe .. I worried about mine for 3 months, trying to find a different exhaust manifold. But once I got the motor install and located .. I had 3 inches of room around the drop pipe I got with my motor. Several other things worked out that way. I hated to say but I felt that way about the work you did on your turbo. But I'm not there. Now I though I was going to have trouble with my water hose outlets . My top points toward the radiator and worked out fine. But I did have to make ''mill'' one for the bottom that point toward the radiator.
......... Have FUN ..

PAPITT.

You make a great point about the exhaust pipe. I will take that advice and leave it alone until it causes me a problem. I also have considered the H1 intake idea and i am going to research that idea more right now.


On to the updates

I started this morning at 6:45am i couldnt sleep because i was so excited about taking the jeep apart.


forumrunner_20120808_160239.jpg
Here i have the grill off and starting on the radiator.

Next up after the radiator was the passenger side fender.

Also i dropped my bellhousing off at the machine shop and had them soak and clean it.



forumrunner_20120808_160845.jpg



forumrunner_20120808_160856.jpg

Then added a little Cummins beige



forumrunner_20120808_160927.jpg



forumrunner_20120808_160946.jpg


I took tbe following picture cause it made it look like the jeep was bleeding... its atf which I was running in my power steering.. no real good reason why i was using atf rather than power steering fluid .

I love this build man. I helped one of my buddies do a 4BT Cummins swap in a 88 YJ with NV4500 tranny swap too. It is an amazing setup. Great progress so far. Keep up the good work!

And I also helped another one of my buddies put a 12Valve 6BT Cummins into a J-20 jeep truck. Both are amazing and the J-20 is pretty much one of a kind(Around here anyways)

Krasnake. Thanks for the encouragment. Does your buddy have any vidros on youtube of his J-20?

This morning i made some good progress. I have entire wire harness off the engine and the engine is ready to pull. Only thing is, i am not exactly sure where to hook my chain to the engine to pull it. Any suggestion.. i plan on selling the engine so i dont want to take it apart much to pull.

Also got the driver side fender off


forumrunner_20120809_181015.jpg

On my old jeep, when I did an engine swap I used the head bolts that were sticking up. There is just enough to get a chain and nut on them to pull it out.
