Strike 2. I was trying to dig out the broken MAP sensor and it fell into the intake manifold along with my digging tool new intake gasket is $75 at my friend's cost. Oh well, probably a good idea to re seal it, its just not a cost I wanted right now.

On a good note, ill be sending off my harness and ecm tomorrow.

Ill have my intake gasket tomorrow and get that all done. Im trying to avoid pulling my metalcloaks but I think it will make things easier. After taking some measurements I dont think my stock manifolds are going to fit.

The intake gaskets are all installed. It was pretty dirty in there and somehow I managed to knock a bulb out of the shop light so there was plenty of glass too. All I could think to do was stuff a rag in each port and take the air compressor to it. It worked pretty well

What are you guys running for fuel pumps? Ive read that stock yj pumps provide enough psi but does my tank have provisions for a pump since it was carbureted?

I'm setting up a fuel cell with an external inline fuel pump. Bosch 044. I'm not sure how the fuel tank setup on the early carb YJ's is setup, so I don't have an answer to if that will fit an in-tank fuel pump. You may be able to install an external fuel pump and add a return to the tank.

Thats what I was originally planning on doing but read that someone was having problems with adequate fuel pressure and reliability. I'm sure all of that is relative to the pump that you use. I'm not too familiar with fuel systems so I'll take all the help I can get!

Got the engine into place to get the motor mounts tacked in. The mounts hang pretty low off the frame, but I was worried about hood clearance. I am a terrible welder so I have to wait for a friend to come burn them in.

Hopefully I left enought room for the radiator. Has anyone used the AA trans mount? I dont know what is going on but I couldn't get it to fit together, the plate won't fit in the trans adapter, so I hope I got everything right there too

People use the stock 4.0 HO YJ fuel pump. Take a look at late model Camaro or Corvette manifolds. They dump closer to the front of the motor. I'm using LS2 (I think) Camaro manifolds and they are way cheaper than headers.

Any insight on if a 4.0 pump/sending unit will fit in my 88 tank? I will look at camaro and corvette manifolds. The rear dump is fine I just need them to turn down a little sooner.

Back to crying about Advance Adapters. I called them about the mount and he said that I got the wrong one even though it says "to be used with our transmission to transfer case adapters". I asked him about refunding me shipping or giving me a shipping label but he can't because they threw a shifter bracket in the box too so now I have to pay shipping 3 ways to get the damn mount I need.

I'm not sure. You can probably get a whole tank and pump for cheap if not though.
