The being paid for, that's important.

I can see how it would help protect the fenders. I like that.

Using my BOB

Since I had to run my extra power wire to the amp up the same harness as the PCM, I had to pull it out from behind the dash. Much to my surprise I was able to get it out without too much trouble. Since I had easy access to the PCM I decided to check out some of my engine sensors and verify their readings. I hooked up what is commonly referred to as a BOB. A Break Out Box is simply a terminal station that is spliced into the harness directly at the PCM itself. Here I have it connected to the PCM and can now connect the vehicle harness.


This allows me to start and run the engine if I want while being able to check any circuit to or from the PCM. You can see the VPWR light is lit up and I'm down to 11.99 volts on pin 37. This is after I had already been checking most every sensor with the engine off. Pin 37 is the main VPWR to the PCM. Pin 60 is ground.


Here you can see me checking pin 47. If you notice the diagram above the meter, pin 47 is for the TP (Throttle Position) sensor. It was at .925v closed and only went to 4.0 at WOT. I adjusted it down to .756v closed throttle and now it goes to 4.249 at WOT. Anything over 4.0v is considered WOT to the PCM, I just wanted to make sure it really knows when I want WOT.


I also did this with the EGR. I commanded it on and off, verified it had flow when the engine stumbled and verified the position sensor changed. All of the sensors looked good except for my HEGO's were awfully slow. I think they need to get a good drive cycle and some heat under their belt since they haven't really been used in so long. If they don't perk up on my first test drive I'll have to replace them.

Next up is modifying the winch mounting plate to work on the CJ and with my existing front bumper. This should be the last main piece to require any significant amount of welding and grinding.

At this point I think it would be a fair trade just to get away from this cold weather.

That looks great. I made my own ignition and fuel injection system for my Chevy TPI using megasquirt parts. I'm using the Ford 5.0 this time and have been shopping for a break-out box for months, but they always sell for too much. Is there a certain brand you would recommend that I buy? I always wished that there was something similar I could have plugged my home-made TPI harness into to troubleshoot. I know I want one bad this time!

I'm partial to Rotunda because it is developed and engineered by Ford. It is the only brand I have ever used so I can't provide much input on the others. If the time comes where you really need one and still don't have one, let me know. I'm sure we can work something out for you to borrow it for a few weeks.

Mike, I have been enjoying your build for sometime now and think your doing a top notch job. One question I have is you seem to have little trouble taking those fenders off and on, is it really as easy as you seem to make it? I know I had a tough time lining up the bolt holes for the grill. Maybe my body is out of wack more than I think it is?

I could have used you in the 90's when we were racing mustangs and trying to tune the efi. Good stuff Mike.

It is fairly easy getting the fenders on and off with nice clean bolts and threads. It does take a little persuasion to get everything to line up just right but I also over sized the holes in the fenders so getting them started is much easier than before.

Thanks. I would have loved to help. Racing is in my blood.

That is pretty good. Those velocity stacks sure are hard to see over. I'm going to run an extra windshield washer motor full of bleach and water with sprayers pointing at the rear wheels for the super smokey burnouts.
