Well I got the tranny bolted up. Along with a few accessories. Now I need to switch out the leaking Saginaw pump while the gettins good, slap the carb, radiator, and dizzy in and she's good to go.

I dismantled the old distributor and made myself a priming pump. I may have overdone it but I filled the oil filter with assembly lube/break in oil before I put it on. And used 6 quarts of Comp Cams10/30 break in oil to make sure there was enough running through for the break in.

Still wondering if I want to start it with open manifolds or not. I want everyone to hear it I just don't want a tick or rattle to go unnoticed with the 401 music turned up.

If the shop that built your engine did the valley oil mod I'd say you have a near bullet proof setup. I hope the rest of the Jeep is ready for all that power. I'm really impressed with those HP numbers using a Performer intake.

What exactly do you plan to do with it?
Hot street?
Show Jeep?
Trail rides? If your off roading you need to rig a kill switch for those nice electric fans if you pass through some water.

Sounds like you have a really solid build. I bet you can't wait for your down time/drive ratio to improve

I did have the t-18 rebuilt and swapped out the Dana 20 for a rebuilt jeepster dana 20 with twin stick conversion for front only wheel drive.... I went with the Centreforce Dual friction clutch plate and converted to hydraulic clutch as well....

Now my weak point....

"Loose" drive lines, AMC 20 and Dana 30 Axles (came with but have single axle conversion, true-trac front and Detroit back lockers, 4:11 gears)

Next step......

Currently on the hunt for (not in a hurry)
1: Front End / Axle
Military CUCV Trucks type
M1028 or M1031 (ambulance)
Dana 60
Open Knuckle
Trac-Lok limited slip locker

2: REAR
Military CUCV Trucks type
M1008
Dana 60
GM 10.5"
Corporate
14 Bolt
Full-Float, Differential with No-Spin lockers (Detroit Locker)

3: Will do the trusses and disc break upgrades

4: have not decided to do the superlift 4 link suspension or the cj to yj conversion......

5: I'll convert to the Mil hummer bead lock set up and will go with mil spec hummer 36.5" tires that are readily available in lots or individual for about 150 a piece

This is a trail/hunting and had the cam set to be able to sand dune with high rpms, as well "summer toy"......I have no singular interest

Ill also try a couple shows this summer .... Jeep Jamboree in OH and the Bantam Festival in PA

What about your rig?? What mods or purpose are you building yours for

Probably just a typo, but that Dana 60 doesn't belong there. These are the same axles you find under a K30 Chevy pickup, with the addition of the Detroit locker. It's hardly worth trying to find a CUCV to steal the axles from.

Actually the dana 60's under a CUCV are 14 bolt identified and the come with 4:56 gear and Detroit locker already installed........ There are plenty around I'm just waiting to find the "buy me now price"

No, the front axle is a Dana 60. The rear axle is a GM full float 14 bolt. It's not a 14 bolt Dana 60. There is no such thing. All Dana 60s have ten bolt covers.

I used to own an '85 M1028 with the communications cover on the back, so I'm very familiar with the running gear.

What about your rig?? What mods or purpose are you building yours for

Sent from my iPhone using JeepForum
Well. This thread is getting off topic. But I'm cool with that.

Your not going to have many original parts left on that thing lol.

I'm hoping my 31" M/T's don't require me to upgrade my axles.

They are literally the only original drive train components left. From the Radiator to my new driveshafts its all new or NOS.

I have the stock AMC 20 in the rear and a 44 up front that I welded for take offs in 4x4 and pulling myself over obstacles.

Yours sounds like a beast.

But the main purpose is to have a fast go-anywhere workhorse for my missions work abroad. And if I get to surprise trucks and Hondas on the streets here too it's icing on the cake.

Got a small tach, coolant, a few odds and ends.

When I tried to mount the exhaust manifolds I found that the old bolts from the 360 don't fit. No part stores carry them. So I guess I'll head to ACE and get some grade 8 bolts with some anti-seize.

My priming shaft tool a while to work I had to fill the filter with the rest of my assembly lube and run the drill for about 5 minutes before I put it in high speed mode then after about 20 seconds it bogged down.

I found a new headache though. The dang dipstick tube was a pain to install and when I tried to put the dipstick in it won't go all the way down. I think it went in wrong and either became bent or its hitting the windage tray. CRAP!

I'll try that today and let you know if I have any issues. I'll rotate it by hand a few times after I do to ensure it clears the rotating assembly.

It started snowing and blowing at the end of the day yesterday. I'm working in a parking lot so I have to wait until the weather clears. It's still snowing today. Bummer.

[Edit]Your Jeep sounds awesome by the way. Sick build!
