Swapping in AMC V8, but have some questions

Hey all,

First time installing an engine, and have some questions, that I would like to get some confirmations on and a little re-assurance
I appreciate the help...

First pic, I have installed the flywheel, torqued the 6 flywheel bolts to 105ft.lb. Now where the pilot bushing sits, see the red arrow? doesn't look like the pilot bushing will sit flush as the tube where the transmissions input shaft goes seems to be sticking out about 1/8" or 3/16" - is this a problem?

Second pic: I have installed an edelbrock rpm air gap manifold. Instructions are not specific enough for me to understand. Is this where the heater hose from the heater core would enter the manifold? if yes, then I need to get some sort of fitting/adapter in order to attached the heater hose.

Pic 3: Is this where the temp sensor would install?

Pic 4: Oiler sender here?

Thanks again for your help and patience. Just want to make sure I am doing this right.
Paul

On your last pic, there is a 90 degree threaded adapter block, an oil pressure switch (for the choke plate ) and a oil pressure sender unit all in line, pointing back.

2nd picture, that is where the line goes to the heater core. The other hose will go from the heater core to the water pump.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

In pic 3, the water temperature sender should be installed in the hole that is on the drivers side of the water neck, or alternatively, into the rear of the water neck.

Here's the part # for a heater hose fitting I am using on my 401 with the same intake manifold. Are you using mechanical or electrical gauges?

Thx for the part number! I am using the original cj eletrical gauges.
Where did you end up threading your temp sender? Can you snap a shot?

It is way easier to hook up the heater hose to the manifold if you use a 90 fitting instead of a strait fitting.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Here is a pic of the pressure plate on, bellhousing, fork and throwout bearing. Alignment tool still in.
Does everything look right? Specifically how i have the throwout bearing installed?

Yup, looks good. At least your throw out is facing the right direction...

Ask me how I know....

Stock temp sender for stock gauge is bottom left in pic (next to water neck), my after market mechanical gauge is installed in the right front of the intake manifold and runs through the firewall through a grommet in a plate I made to fill a factory hole.

thanks for the pic...pic are worth a thousand words, thank you

since I am using the CJ original stuff, I could probably install the stock cj sensor where you have your mechanical sender? I am thinking yes ...

5/8's heater hose. Yes you can put the factory sender on the opposite side with an adapter. The coolant port on the passenger side is a larger hole.
