Any ideas welcome.
You can find the exact same AN fittings in brass at the hardware store. If you have any extra line it easy to slap together a few lines. If not, go to a heavy equipment dealer (John Deere, Case, CAT) bring the fittings you need to adapt and have them make it. Made me custom power steering lines for $32 for both. I understand it doesn't have to be super high pressure, but The variety of fittings they have, they can make almost anything on the cheap.

So I have the fuel lines all plumbed. I ended up using the rail quick connects from the motor and tieing those into the new lines. It was an obvious solution that was staring me in the face.

So now I want to energize the pump to make sure I have no leaks. I know that I need key on but how to do that. I figure I can jumper 2 posts on the relay but which 2? Any help appreciated!

Also when I have the key on all my gauges are functioning except for the gas gauge, it is reading way over full and the tank is almost empty. I think I am missing a ground some where?

Disregard that I figured it out. Didn't have a ground hooked up. Also figured out how to jumper fuel pump relay. And the key has to be on run.



So as of tonight I have all gauges working. Starter wire is kicking, all interior lights work along with all exterior lighting. I'm going to post up what to cut and what to not later. Just need tack (Dakota digital) and getting the speedo working but I just need to splice the Jeep VSS to the speedometer, or so says Novak.

I have been kind of down the last week or so with no noticeable progress and I HATE running fuel lines with a passion. But my trans mount from AA showed up so I can finalize the drivetrain, Jeep electrical is good and fuel lines are run. Just need my wiring harness and ECU from Wayne (pirate4x4) and she should run. Hopefully.

Had one small leak, which is fixed. Just have to get the gas fumes out of the garage before I burn the house down.

One last wire to cut.

I have Dk green with an orange stripe going from the alt wiring harness to the connector on the right side under the battery. What does this do? Can I just cut it?

How did you connect your new fuel lines to the old fuel rail fittings?

dang man someone hosed you on an stuff big time. my rail fittings were less than 20 each from jegs. -6 braided hose for a 20ft section i think was like 70 bucks and a few other -6 straight fittings at 5 a piece. only problem is if you screw one up..it's like 5 bucks and 10 to ship it lol. glad it worked out for you. im going to transfer my sending unit to the rci this weekend or next and gotta get i think 2 -6 fittings to reseal where i messed one up somehow *leaking from a seal internally?* and one to change the 90 from the rail to a straight fitting.

I had no idea what to get with the AN stuff, but it worked out

When I cut the alt wiring out I had a green with orange stripe wire that goes into the large connector under the battery box. It appears to terminate at the ASD relay. Is this something that needs to be hooked up? Or can I just cut the wire out.

I assume that since the ECU is gone the ASD no longer functions. Correct? It will just be a pass throught if power to the Fuel pump relay?

So how did you connect your fuel lines at the fuel rail?

For right now I just bubbled flares the lines and used a small piece of fuel injector hose to connect them together. I'm not sure this is what I will run yet or not.

Did you just use regular hose clamps? I know you dont want to spend alot of fuel lines and I dont want to on mine either but I looked at it like this. If I have a fuel leak because I was to cheap and it catches on fire it could all burn to the ground before I could save it and I would loose alot more than 150.00 in fuel line.

I completely understand. That is why I bubble flared the line and used fuel injection hose along with fuel injection clamps. It shouldn't leak. It's a better setup than stock.

I still may go with An stuff simPly because if I have an issue with the stock stuff replacement is pricey.
