I'm back! Finally getting things buttoned up around the farm here and starting to get motivated to get this project done! Today I pulled the body back off and wanted to get the front accesory drive on the engine taken care of so I could finally decide on where the engine needs to be located front to back. I ordered a short style water pump a long time ago and when I tried to bolt it on I realized that it doesn't fit. Not only does it hit the aluminum bracket on the pass. side it also hits the timing cover on the backside of the pump. Day 1 and I'm already frustrated. Advice? I need to keep the water pump, power steering, and alternator as far to the back as possible for radiator clearance.

You should be able to get that in. You might need to move the radiator forward, but you should have the room. You can fit a 350 in there then. You will need a a larger radiator anyway

I was wanting to keep the radiator in the original location if at all possible. Not only for ease of mounting of the radiator itself but also the front body mount, steering linkage, and winch related things. Also the electric fan takes up some of the room between the radiator and the inside of the grill. That being said, moving the rad forward may be the only option here. P.S. The radiator I have is custom made aluminum (expensive!) to fit in the original location. It cooled the dauntless just fine so it should cool the 4.3 just fine as well.

The only real way to save room then is to go with serpentine belts

sounds like a great project. will be watching it.

i am recently starting a build of a 1971 cj5 with a blown f134, t90, and d18. planning a 4.3L swap, probably a sm420 and the d18 with an overdrive eventually. would like to run waggy 44s and waggy rear springs to get a bit of stretch eventually too. the stretch will wait until phase 2 when i step up to 36s. right now i have like new 31 ATs.

Started workin on it again. I got the new trans crossmember made and started work on the floors. I got the tool box cut out with a harbor freight spot weld cutter(works great!) i got the belt drive done a while ago. I borrowed a friends lathe and his knowledge and recentered the water pump pulley so it sticks out the same as the power steering pump. I also scored a ac delete pulley from the junkyard which helped alot. Now Im waiting on the radiator to get back (i had to move the inlet and outlet a little bit) and then i can FINALLY weld in the motor mounts.

Here is where I'm at with body work. This is taking 10x longer than I expected. The passenger main floor is done.

Finally got back to work on the jeep. I'm almost done with the floors FINALLY! One more patch panel to go, probably.

Floors are officially DONE! It's a shame all that pretty metal work will be covered in paint/ bed liner. I will try to get some pics up soon.
