finished wiring my gauges, indicator lights and headlight and wiper switches. I also installed my pedals and steering column.



aluminum radiator is installed and master cylinder. however the radiator has to come back put so I can install my tranny cooler. I love doing things twice! I also have a new master cylinder coming from a CJ with front disks that should work with my disc brake swap.



still hoping to have it running in the next week or so. seems like I am constantly having to look for a bracket or needing to order another part. SBC swap is not as simple as most people think!

I ran into a little snag today. Bolted in my transfer case and got to the last bolt and popped the threads. had to pull it back put and put a helicoil in it. when I drilled out the hole for the helicoil I must not have been perfectly straight. I ended up studding that hole and got it to work. I also started bolting up the engine accessories.

got it started today and broke the cam in. I was hoping to get that done in a few hours, but it took all day like everything!

spent most of my two days off prepping and painting a tailgate for a friend. I did manage to get a little work done. I welded in a receiver tube in the rear bumper that a fabbed up. also sprayed it with some duplicolor rattle can bedliner.

I got some more work done today. Cleaned all the grease off my steering box and bracket. sprayed it with some black paint and got it mounted.



also found a combo of power steering pump brackets and pulley. painted them and got it mounted.



had to drill a new hole in my gas tank for the autometer sending unit. they make a fuel gauge that runs the same ohms as the stock CJ sending unit, but my kit came with a different one.

its starting to come together. getting all these little pieces and brackets painted is a pain and seems like it takes forever. still hoping to get it going before the weather warms up

Got all my lights wired but had problems with my drivers side turn signals. Finally tracked it down to the turn signal switch in the steering column. Got that replaced and put a new steering wheel on today. Also spray lined my tube fenders

I read on here a while back that AMC used duct tape as electrical tape. I thought they were full of it until I started going though my original harness to find some plugs. Seems like a major fire hazard to me!

Got my fenders mounted. Brake lines and power steering lines bled. Filled both axles with fluid. Finished all my wiring. Just a couple more things and I will have it roadworthy. Need to finish bolting on my transfer case crossmember, put on hood and tailgate and put in driveshafts.

I also wired in an indicator light on my alternator. Just wired it into the exciter wire and it solved my charging problem.
