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.

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.
