Is that the correct height for the trans? It looks like its kind of high. will it affect the rear driveshaft angle?

You can kinda see in the picture there is a hump in the pan about 8" in front of my new mount.Thats where the 3 speed mounted.I am just about 1/2" higher than that.But I put a level on the motor and I am about 1° tilt to the back.

Mount looks good. You should make several of them and sell them to guys doing the swap.

I figured on scanning it at work and saving it in a dxf format.

The mount does look good, but why didn't you replace the entire skid plate? You could make a lot more ground clearance under there.

I guess I got another little set back.I unpacked everything and they didn't give me one of the gaskets I was suppose to get in the kit.Now I have to call them tomorrow and guess it will be next week now.

Please excuse the hijack. Do you know the part number for the slaver cylinder pictured or one that works with a thread line? Anyone? I already have a master cylinder installed in my Cj7 from when i did the hydraulic swap and have a braided line running to the old slave. Now that I am installing an AX15, I need to use a different slave and all the slaves I found have the goofy connection.

I also shortened it pushrod. It took about a hour or so to get the slave modified right but it survived a trip to crozet, va. And about 1,000 miles.
This is the only pic I currently have. It was during my prefitting stage. You can kinda see where I had to grind to clearance the trans and that the holes have been redrilled.



All in all the slave was like $27.. So it was a good cheap upgrade.

Going to try and put the clocking ring on today and get transfer case in.Also picked up my fuel pump and pre filter and the filter after the pump.Was going to get about 15' of fuel line but the price held me back for now. I may try and hard line it closer.The rubber high pressure fuel line is almost $6.00 a foot.

I really like the route you took for your build, using a modern version of the 258 backed by a medium duty 5spd all with factory EFI is equally if not more interesting than a V8 swap to me. Will bodywork and interior get a makeover?

Excellent work so far

If everything runs out good my plans are to do a paint job before summer.

Still waiting on some help to get transfer case raised up in to install.Everyone I know is busy. So I thought I would start on the fuel system.Got the pump and filters connected. Now I need to cut the fuel line and install it.
