The yard cut the rubber coupler or I would have done it already.

I hope the tube works. I think worse case is I may need to cut the tube down. My brother has a stock filter housing from a GMC he has a few years back that I may try to add to the engine bay.

She lives!

I think It may be missing though. But no codes.

So in my excitement in hearing the motor run and thinking I may have a miss on the passenger side. I ran the motor for about 30 seconds here and there with no coolant. I did this maybe 5-6 times over the course of 2.5 hours. It never got hot. The block and heads were warm when I would touch them but not hot.

You don't think I could have damaged anything? The video above is a good representative of the amount of running the motor did.

I know the older style motors you could run it without coolant for a while as long as you didn't burn it up. But these new style motors i don't know. but when i get mine ready to fire, its going to.

Since my replacement radiator was wrong I couldn't hook up my radiator yesterday when I was starting my motor for the first time. The radiator that they sent me had the wrong size ports in it. Which were to large for the hoses I had planned on running. Sooooo I went without and then though later that wasn't such a good idea.

After thinking it over I decided that I only ran it for a short time and it never got hot so I think everything is fine. I tend to dwell on things and worry until I figure it out. So I have been thinking on this all day.

So tonight to relieve my mind I went to the auto parts store and picked up some hose to make this radiator work until the correct replacement gets here.

After working the hoses out, replacing the thermostat and getting the system filled I fired her up. She ran beautifully. Took 30 minutes of idling to come up to temperature and everything went great. I didn't find any oil in the coolant, nor any coolant in the oil and no leaks. So good news there. The whole thing was rather uneventful.

Left on the list is exhaust. I have all the parts just need to get it all hooked up.

Funds? That's what they make credit cards for! jk. I have been selling lots of knives for funds.

What do you lack? Last time I saw yours it looked close to being done.

I sent you that EGR and wiring you should have it soon.

Been working on exhaust. The Muffler I bought is waaaaaaaay waaaaaaay way to big. So I need to figure something out for that.

Anyone have a recommendation for a muffler? I want something with a nice tone but not loud.

I also found the where the transfer case mates to the adapter is leaking. So I have been pulling the tcase. I hate doing things twice. But I found that the bottom 2 tcase studs are too short with the AA trans mount on there. So the case has to come out so I can lengthen those. Tried to do it with the case in but that's a no go.

I'm so close to being done but the project is starting to wear on me with the completion date I have set for my self which is 2 weeks out.

I found the muffler I want. Magnaflow part # 12229. Very close in size to the one I was running with the 4.0 so it should fit just fine.

I picked up a magnaflow muffler for $70 shipped.

I don't know how you could sell it after putting all that work into it. I know that you can loose motivation but you will get there. I couldn't image selling mine.

I have a 2.5 to 3.5 ypipe you can have if you can use it. Maybe throw a reducer on it to get down to 2.5. Let me know and I'll send it your way.

For the cat I would go to a yard and get something and just hollow it out.

I was working on my exhaust this evenging when I noticed some wetness on the driver side block just above the oil filer. I found some water in a bolt hole in the driver side head. Is it possible for coolant to get here?

This is a shot of the bolt hole in driver side head between the middle 2 exhaust ports. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture before I had cleaned out the bolt hole.


The hole had muddy liquid in it. I can't say if it smelled like coolant or not.

Inside bolt hole.


I pulled the value cover and found no signs of any cracks in the head. No coolant in the head nor in the oil. No oil in the coolant either. I understand that anything is possible but I have never heard of a head leaking here. Anyone?
