These are the Wire Looms:

I like them because the wires get stacked vertical by the valve cover, rather than horizontal above the header like some kits, where they are exposed to more heat.

Haven't had much time to work on the Heep. So I thought I would fall back into what I do best. Buy Stuff!






I sure hope these are the right ones. The cat thinks the box is the right one.






I really wrestled with Painted vs Ceramic. Finally gave in to painted as they were half the price. If they last 5 years I'll be happy and get to decide again.

Don't get discouraged by that Painless Harness. It's actually pretty easy! I didn't have any trouble at all when I put mine in. Prior to that, I'd go cross eyed just looking at automotive electrical wiring! Was really easy to use with the MSD ignition too. I bet you could even go look at it yourself for reference because it does live in Connecticut now!

Thanks for the encouragement hasselback! I don't really have a problem with automotive wiring diagrams. My problem is routing the wires. I just keep doing it over and over. Like: It's to close to that metal edge, it might chafe. Reroute. That's not good, to close to a hot spot. Reroute. Vibration could be a problem in this area. Reroute and reclamp. Etc. Most of my problems are my own.

Looked a little closer at those headers this morning. They have a little paper tag on them that says "not a high temp paint"

REALLY? What did you bother putting it on for then? That's like buying a new car with a sticker on it that says Caution: Water based paint--Do not get wet.







Oh well. Off they go to the blasting cabinet.

Oh yes, Been there too! I ordered painted headers for mine, but they didn't come with that warning. First time I ran the engine, garage was full of smoke! I let them go for a while then hoping all the paint would burn off, then I wouldn't have to blast them. Wrong!

Nice to see people from CT here. I have the Jeep hassleback referred to as moving to CT. You are lucky to have a CT title, I have to have a VIN inspection and the firewall plate is the only VIN, but they want a windshield VIN also.

You are welcome to come check out anything you need to see for the wiring harness. It was nicely installed (Hi Matt!).

There are no JY around here that let people into the yard, such a shame, I loved it when I was decades younger

Sorry if I missed it but are you going with a hydraulic clutch? That driver's side header is going to dump right in the middle of the stock clutch linkage.

We'll have to conect at some point. I'm in the opposite corner of CT. I have 2small JY that let you walk through but no Jeeps except the one I got a few parts off of.

Did I do that wrong???????? I thought I got the headers that Rob has, that someone suggested, that are supposed to clear on both sides. I'll go back through some threads and check again. Rats I just glass beaded them an hour ago.

Heart rate is starting to go back down.

Here is the post from Exposed (Calvin) on what he got that worked. Rob went with these too.

"One another note, I looked at my headers and they are Pace Setter 70-1322 Below is a link where I bought them. They will fit and have the O2 bung installed for the sensors you will need.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PSM-70-1322/

Calvin"

Those are the ones I got. Same number, same distributor. They are listed for a Ford 150/Bronco etc.

Hey, I read it on the internet so it must be true. You can't lie on the internet.

"Bonjour"

Calvin and Rob are both good sources so you must be good.

I just know that I started out with a set of MAC Shorties that looked a lot like yours and they dumped right into the middle of the clutch linkage.

I know I don't post much anymore but I am subscribed to a lot of the builds. I do love to see the 5.0 conversions as well. Keep up the good work.

He should be ok Mike, with the truck shorties. I originally had a pair of center dumps (below in link) and it hit up against the pass. side motor mount, so I went with a pair of Hedman truck shorties and they worked out fine. The driver side one is close to the clutch linkage, but it did manage to clear it all.

These are the ones that I bought that didn't fit:

These are the Hedman ones I went with:

No, nothing at all. I have been pulled away from the project for the last 6 weeks due to work. Not that I mind work, I don't, but it really cuts into my day. It does finance the project though.

I have decided (I think) to go with a fiberglass body. Mine is repairable, but it is still metal and I plan to drive it all year in the rust belt. Fiberglass will be forever.

Just can't figure out the best one to get.

Should be able to get back to it soon.
