If all that checks out you can always move the wires 3 holes/ 180 degrees. make number 1 number 6 and vice versa

Well guys. IT RUNS.



I have a video of start up and it running. But, my laptop does not support windows movie maker. I will see if I can update something and get a video posted sometime today.


List of final prep before driving.

Finish front section of exhaust. Done
Add fluids
Shorten rear DS. Done
Install JK yoke conversion
Replace brake booster
Diagnose NO oil pressure at the gauge. New sending unit. Done


Build seat mounts. Found some trooper seat sliders at pick a part that will work great.

I had been wondering about that, would have been the first thing I would have done, to get it running, I guess that's the difference between a mechanic and a bodyman
Really glad you got your baby humming

Working on making her purrrr now. About got the down pipe mocked up, once I get it all tacked in place I can finish the 2 into 1 merge. Then a straight shot to the converter.

Hope to here her run tonight with exhaust.
