Awesome news minus the no oil pressure ... I would almost bet it is a sending unit issue .

I hope so, it was a random one I had laying around.

Well I got the down pipe all mocked up tonight. I tacked it together and pulled it off to weld up tomorrow with my smaller welder at work. I need to locate a 2.5-3" exhaust pipe that I can make a collector for the "Y" pipe. Then is smooth sailing from there with the exhaust.

I had the same 180* off problem with one of the TJ's I rebuilt a couple years ago. Frustrating that everything is set right and it still won't start...
Glad to see this thing getting close to the end. Gives me some motivation on my close to 48 month build

As long the valves didn't clatter you should be good with oil pressure, still hard to tell, till it fully warms up and the thermostat opens

That's what you told me originally. Just happy it started after I swapped it back to distributor from the coil pack set up.

Got my movie maker working, but my go pros are recording mp4s now. I need to figure out how to switch them back.

Open Manifold, I started it, then shut it down and restarted.
