Cool. Mine is a direct shot from the key to the starter. No neutral safety for me. Thanks.

One of the things I was going to do today was get the exhaust manifold in, stearing shaft and the power steering hoses. After getting the exhaust manifolds in I was going to start laying out my exhaust and order the tubing. But the Corvette manifolds hit the Novak motor mounts! So I didnt get anything done today except the power steering hose. A whole day wasted searching for a manifold alternative.

I bid on some 2010 Camero SS exhaust manifolds that du p more towards the rear and straight down. Hopefully these work. I dont see how they wouldn't.

Any how, here is how the GM steering hose was rebent and bolted to the Jeep steering box. The GM line is the silver one.

I thought you had test fit the corvette manifolds and they were ok? Have you tried to move the motor mounts to a different hole?

I did test fit them. But I couldn't put the full weight of the motor on the mounts. That must be my problem. The mounts are as far back as they can go.

Unless I cut the flanges they aren't going to work.

I will, but probably not till Monday or so. Going fishing with the twins and the old man

My Dad helped me with the Jeep a little this morning. By help I mean he stood there telling me everything I was doing wrong and drinking beer.

I got the power steering all plumbed up and the steering shaft in. No interference issues. I ended up using the GM hose and it worked perfectly. Also I was able to get the Jeep temp sender in the block, worked out great and got the heater hoses run. Ended up using the stock Jeep for the top hose and the GM for the lower. Brake lines put back in place and figured out what Im doing with the fuel line and I ran the return line. got the serpentine belt on and the mechanical fan. Also figured out what Im doing for the brake booster line.

For the fuel lines I picked up some Fuel Injection hose, 5/16 and 3/8". Expensive! Also. doorman quick disconnect for GM in 5/16" and 3/8". Part numbers 800-120 & 800-121. Some fuel injection hose clamps to keep everything together. The Jeep return line is 5/16" so I just tied into that. I will need to run a 3/8" supply line. Anyone know why I couldn't use the Jeep fuel filter?

Fuel line minus clamp.


steering all done. It looks like it is hitting but it is not.


Jeep temp sender in passenger side of block. Get BWD part number WT430. Its a little longer than other brands and gets down into the water jacket.


The GM and Jeep use similuar brake booster fittings. The Jeep however uses a smaller hose to connect to the intake, so Im using the GM, it fits perfectly. Ill just need to pick up a longer hose.

GM on top, Jeep on bottom.

I have some 5/16 high pressure line (3,000 psi stainless and nylon braid) in my garage. I used it for the trans cooler on my Duster. I think there is three 25' lengths left and I used -5an fittings from True Value. If need some, let me know.

I appreciate the offer but I'm not sure I would have a use for it at this pont. I have all my fuel line and trans cooler lines.

I am in the process or ordering all my fuel line stuff. When I realized that I have no idea what fuel filter to run. I cant run the corvette fuelfilter with built in regulator since my motor has the regulator at the fuel rail.

Any ideas?

got your pm. here's a few pics of what i have and how it works i ended up fitting my pump with fuel line and a -6 bulkhead at the top of the sender. when i move the unit to my fuel cell im going to change the line to submersible stuff. but for now it works. i used braided stainless from the pump to the rail then most of the way back. for my fuel filter i tried a stuck 99 silverado one but couldn't get the AN fittings to seal in it even with sealer so i scrapped that idea and bought a jegs universal with AN fittings. i got the smallest and cheapest for not but in the future i wouldn't mind buying the bigger one for it. the regulator is handled on the engine and for return i used braided stainless down to a 3/8 hard line then a barbed fitting to rubber hose back to the unit. here s a few pics of how i did it...please forgive the un-doneness of it lol and a vid to encourage you for an air intake i bought an AEM brute force intake for the truck. and cut it up. in the pic of where it attaches to the TB is the only issue i ran into. i can't seem to find a way to get the water outlet hose around it, so i bought another 4inch silicone coupler and going to use it with a bit of the intake tube i cut off to make a 2-3 inch spacer from the tb out. it'll basically just push the intake towards the radiator about 2 inches and give me lots of room to clear the upper hose. keep the pics coming they look good!

So I do not know what to do about connecting the 3/8 and 5/16 hard lines to the GM fuel rail. I currently have a rubber line to make that transition. But Im not excited about it.

I have looked at the AN stuff and there is no way that I am spending $165 to make 2 3ft sections of tubing. That is insane.

Any ideas welcome.
