Mounts are burned in and the motor is in for good. Also got the rear drive shaft and the throttle cable in. I ended up using the Jeep throttle cable, the GM cable is about an inch to short.

Jeep cable mounted to GM intake and throttle body.



Also looks like the truck mechanical fan is going to work.


Need to figure out a trans mount. If anyone has an idea let me know. I think I found a radiator I want just need to pull the trigger in it. Need wiring and exhaust.

Not sure if it will help but I use a lower hose from 1986 Nissan V6 truck and the upper hose is from a 04 Yukon.

I thought I saved the tags off the hoses but they are not in the "money pit" file. The radiator is a universal one that we welded mounting tabs to.

What did you do about the temp sender?

I have looked at several adapters and the difference between the sender 1/8 npt and the plug 12m-1.5 isn't much. I think an adapter would be kind of brittle.

I have my machine shop here at work drilling out the plug and taping it to 1/8 npt but I dont know if that will work. I was thinking that the steel would be less likely to fail over brass.

To answer 2 questions. I used stock jeep hose cut in half for the upper. Also I bought a cheap radiator hose adapter from ebay and drilled it out to 3/8 npt and a 1/8 npt. The 3/8 npt hole I connected the jeep temp sensor. To the 1/8 npt, I put a nipple fitting here and routed the head vent hose to it.

You can see here. The sensor is installed but the vent hose was not yet.


Also used the AA transmission mount and made a crossmember.

If you have access to a machine shop you can have the sensor turned down and re threaded.

The sensor is smaller than the hole. Tried having an adapter made to go from 1/8 to 12m but the material is too thin and just tares when you put any torque on it.

Oh, early sensor must be smaller. Mine was 3/8" npt. I would go with the adapter in the hose, they are already tapped for 1/8"npt.

I have looked at the AA trans mount and Im not sure if that is the route I am going. I have the Novak 231 shifter and I need to figure out if they will work with each other.

What kind of ticks me off is that there are mount holes drilled and tapped in the adapter it self. But to my knowledge they do not sell a mount that works there.

I am still thinking on this. I would prefer the sender to be in the block. But if it cant happen then I will put it in one of the heater the hoses. Since they are always seeing water from the block.
