When the parts arrived the timing set was a Cloyes set and the oil pump gears were Sealed Power: both of which I could've gotten from Summit for $30 cheaper and free shipping.

Not much progress to report, primarily due to back ordered parts.

Got the MORE mounts in and really glad I picked them up when I did.

Yesterday my MSD cam/dizzy gears and ring kit arrived:



...just waiting on pistons and roller tip rockers before I can take everything to the shop. ETA is about 2 weeks.

I'm actually moving this weekend too, but that in of itself hasn't delayed me any. New place has an RV gate and slab on the side of the house that will give me a lot more room to work so I'm excited about that.

FWIW, our local Jeep club/ forum members are fantastic.... Since the CJ currently has no motor I was going to just pay to have to towed on a flat bed to the new place, $80 for a 15mi trip was the best quote I got. On the local forum there is a section for helping other with wrenching and ect...so I asked if anybody had a trailer, or their own flatbed and was willing to help. Turns out a guy on Thursday is coming from the west side of town to pick up his Jeep from a shop near my new place. He offered to swing by and pick up my CJ and drop it off since he will be going right by the new place.....score! Just made my day, not because I saved a few $$ but just to know that Jeepers are truly a good group of people.

Nice to see your finding some local Jeepin' buddies. Some great people in this community.

What ignition did you decide on? Carb or injected? Which cam? Sorry if you've covered this already....

Ignition is MSD HEI with 6AL, Holley 670 TA, performer intake, mild Crane 260 cam-lifters-springs, roller tip rockers, Bulltear pushrods, Cloyes timing kit, heads getting valve job, forged Wiseco .030 (block will be decked, comp at 9.5:1), OE rods are forged and will be resized and used, all new ARP bolts, Clevite bearings, new oil pump gears... ...after much deliberation I'm sticking with OE manifolds (gonna clean them up just as you did) and will do 2-1 exhaust with a Flowmaster Super 44, no cat.

"MSD HEI with 6AL"...??? Most HEI distributers I'm familiar with have the module built into the cap, so they don't require a separate stand-alone module like the 6AL.

Otherwise, is sounds like you have your ducks in a row. Should be fun.

I typed that out wrong, it's the Pro Billet dizzy with the 6AL box....I believe you are running the same?

So Im moving today. Used the new address when I ordered my pistons 2 weeks ago, not expecting them for another 2 weeks. Get to the house this afternoon and guess whats on the doorstep:









They sure are purdy.....

Still waiting on the Summit roller tip rockers which have a ship date of 3/4. I think if they dont ship on Monday Im going to cancel that order and get the Scorpions from Bulltear.

Just about time to get this thing to the shop..!!

Just to confirm, yes the pins are floating.... the disregard comment was a post I deleted.

Summit roller tip rockers arrived today:





Just a few pics of the engine bay after I cleaned it up a bit. I still have some wires to re-route and loom:





Hoping carb shows up tomorrow...?
