Now that I am installing an AX15, I need to use a different slave and all the slaves I found have the goofy connection.
Part was purchased from autozone and is a duralast part # 12457. Quick search revealed that is is also a bendix part number. Application is a 1988-1991 c1500.

There are mods that have to be done but it's pretty simple and easy. I had to drill 2 new mount holes as you can see in the pic and I had to grind the inside of the slave mount to clearance the trans. Also I had to shorten the pushrod by about 2". It was well worth it IMO to not have the stupid wimpy plastic one lol.

Have a little hold up.While washing the inside of the transfer case out I noticed the back seal was leaking diesel that I was using to clean.So before I install it I am going to put a rear seal in it.Nobody around here has them in stock so I ordered it at local car quest.Suppose to be here Wednesday.

Another set back again.I got the new clocking ring in and put it on.Figured I would fill transfer case up before the install and fluid was a steady drip from the front output shaft seal.I called every parts store around and no luck finding one so now I have to order one monday.If its not one thing its another.

what are you doing as far as a fuel pressure regulator?


Also, have you done the vss yet? I'm doing mine now, curious as to what you are doing to mate the 2 prong 91 VSS into the 3-prong harness.

The 94 4.0 I am running already has it on the fuel rail.I may have to order the 3 prong to 2 prong adapter from Hesco for the VSS.I cant find one anyplace used.

After I posted this, I went to the Napa site. They sell a connector, but it's $25!!! But looking at the picture of it there, it looks really similar to a lot of the male plugs that the 258 used. So, I'm going to look at my old harness to see if something will fit. Seems fairly likely that they would've used the same connector for multiple things. I'll let you know what I find.

You have a part number for the one Napa has? The Hesco one is $17 plus shipping.

Oh, and btw the hesco 'adapter' is not really an adapter, but a plug to splice in.

Another question, have you found anything regarding which two of the three wires are used and which on goes to which vss pin? I assume the third is a speedo signal...

Thanks for the link. There is a thread on here some place but cant find it right at the moment that tells what two wires to use.

Have another set back.Went to bolt the transfer case up and the shifter bracket wont clear the transmission.I have done lots of reading on this swap and dont remember anyone mentioning this problem.There is no way,The bracket is going to hit on the AX15.I made a thread asking for help from anyone that has done this swap but either I am the only one or nobody has read it yet.
