I went to Tech School for Auto Mechanics, But, Found myself being a Tile & Stone Contractor. And who ever said I knew what I was Doing? Ha Ha Ha.
I spend a lot of time on the net researching
what works and what doesn't.

Before I put the dash all back together after the YJ Brake pedal swap, I decided to do the heater blower motor upgrade.
For those of you that don't already know. Get a blower motor for a 73' Blazer with a 350 And (No AC). Open up the hole in the fire wall a bit and it bolts right up.
I also put in a new Heater core while I was at it. I figured the old one is 25 years old and I don't want to do all this twice down the road if it started to leak.
Hear is a picture of the new heater core in place and the heater box getting a bead of black silicone to get sealed back up.

Been working on things here and there in the Jeep. I got the dash all put back together from the heater motor upgrade. Here is a picture of it from the Engine compartment. It's a tight fit against the bottom of the battery tray, But it fit.

Got the CJ oil pressure sender and switch adapted to the LS2. And the Second picture is where the water temp sensor will go in the back of the right side head.

The Modified Steering pump and Res. came from PSC. The Res. has a second return on it for a return from the Hydroboost

I was hoping the rest of the fittings I needed would show up today, So I could run all the plumbing this weekend. But no dice. I did finish up a bracket I was working on to mount the steering Res. to the front of the engine though. Check it out!

The Lokar Shifter came for the 4L60E.
I got it to mount in the floor where the old 5 speed shifter lever came out.
Most of the Plumbing has been run, I just need a little more hose to run One more Tranny line to the cooler. And then it will be on to the Fuel System.

I first tried one from one with AC, because I too read the same thing. The shaft you mount the fan to is too long. The One without AC is the exact same length shaft as the one I was replacing. You will know if you have the wrong one. Hope that helps.
