Thats the confusion, sorry! You will be there but w/o the rig and new set-up. I thought that would be a push, but hey, I have seen some stuff done in record time before LOL.

So last weekend we went to Motorama and had a booth as 4 Wheelto Heal. Had a great weekend and met plenty of awesome people. Maybe some new partnerships in the future as well. We had a few Warriors also stop in and we took them around and spent most of the day with them. Had some new friends and supporters of 4W2H stop in. Great meeting Clint Wilson and Jeremy Hopper! All in all great show and event!

Oh just noticed this thread passed the 60k mark in views! That is so crazy! Hopefully all you Jeepers get something out of this thread! I really appreciate all the support and great comments! I love Jeeps, and love the Off-Road Community!

So I did manage to make it to the shop today for about two hours before they closed and wanted to knock out the rear main seal while the motor was still out of the vehicle. This was something I and my buddy, who is doing the same swap into his YJ, thought would be a better safe than sorry type of thought process. Also I needed to remove the Flex Plate anyway for when I add my spacer for the turbo 350 tranny mating. So first I started by removing the Flex Plate. Its just a simple 6 bolts and I used a punch to keep the Flex Plate from turning

For the rear main seal I removed the 14 bolts that hold it to the motor, including the 2 bottom oil pan bolts. From there the I removed and replaced the Crank Seal. It wasn't hard to get off but prying wasn't getting it done so I used a punch from the other side to bend it to my will...lol. Also it comes with a plastic piece that sits inside the crank seal when you purchase a new one...$24.00 Make sure you utilize the plastic piece when mounting the seal back over the Crank to ensure the seal isn't torn or reversed in the process. There is the new seal and I also took a look at the insde of the rear main area to make sure everything looked good. I am still farely confident this motor will run strong for many years to come considering what I have seen of the open areas I have accessed. A clean motor is a healthy motor???

That was all I had a chance to do before the shop closed up for the day. This week as mentioned above I may make the decision on my time off Thurs-Sunday to pull my SBC. I am also mailing out my wiring harness tomorrow to Wayne Hartwig to get cleaned up and tuned! $400 isn't a bad price for what they will do to the harness! More to come plus parts ordering tomorrow! Back to the build process and studying this swap!

J.P., I remember you asking me about a fuel pump. Did you get one yet? Here is what I'm researching right now... Apparently they supply the required 58 PSI plus some. Pair that with a vette regulator and jackpot. Lots of stuff on Pirate that I have to read still. Just thought you'd like to know.

Thanks for the post man. Unfortunately I will not be going in tank for my set up. As far as the corvette regulator thats if you are not running a return line from the motor. At this time I will be. Sometime in the future I may look into a returnless system and incoporate the corvette regulator back to the tank. Thanks for the info but it won't apply to my build.

Brown Santa stopped by the house with a box from Jegs.

I ordered

20ft of Aeroquip Starlite fuel line (P/N 023-FCU0620) - $121.99
Russell Fuel Rail Fitting 3/8, -6an (P/N 799-644120) - $14.99
Russell Fuel Rail Fitting 5/16, -6an (P/N 799-644110) - $14.99
GM Speedo Housing (P/N 890-880021) - $12.99
LS C/Shaft-F/Plate Spacer (P/N 809-12563532) - $36.99

The spacer is needed to adapt the turbo 350 Trans to the motor. The GM Speedo housing hopefully fixes the leak I continue to get out of the speedo cable housing on the trans.

I went with the russell fittings to help keep the fuel lines from popping off like the plastic internal clips have been known to do when not installed properly. You can never be too safe with fuel being sent at 55psi

WOW what a long day! With 5 hours of sleep after working last night I powered through getting everything ready and by 1pm I had the Jeep on the trailer at the shop. I was hoping I'd have a few hands around but everyone I reached out to said they were busy. So I started pulling the fenders, then the front clip (grill). Drained the radiator and disco'd the tranny cooler. By 4pm I had the front clip off and the SBC was exposed.

Drivelines were removed. Next was getting the exhaust removed. Everything went pretty smoothly. Since this motor had been installed in the last 5 years all of the hardware came out pretty easy. After I dropped the exhaust I emptied all of the fluid from the motor, trans, and power steering. I also took some pics of the room I will have with the exhaust removed. Looks like I won't have too many problems clocking the Atlas once its in. There is a bracket on the drivers side that is original that I will cut out to as seen in the pic to help make the drivers side better for the exhaust routing.

I worked on the motor and removing the power steering PSC pump. A ton of wiring was gone through and sorting out the mess I had created with all the non-sense I had going on. I pulled the headers so it didn't tear anything up when I go to pull the motor. That was the last of it for the day. When I got home I had a few packages sitting at home waiting for me. One was some tools I picked up for the swap and my exhaust flanges from yoshifab. We will see if they match up tomorrow.
