I used a piece of 3/4" off the water pump, then a 5/8"-3/4" hose transition back to the heater core. 5/8" from the intake to the core.


Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Looks like no one has commented on pic 1. That is about how far my pilot bushing stuck out. Doesn't seem to cause problems.

I question whether the OP has the correct pilot bushing.

Here's what my T19/AMC 360 pilot bushing looked like. I believe the T18 has the same input shaft size and length, so I would think the pilot should be the same.

This is what I used. Since the water pump takes a 3/4" hose, but the heater core is 5/8", this makes the transition very clean.



You can see it at the bottom of this pic.

Hey friends...i suppose I need to make an official build thread. I'll do that as soon as I can, in the meantime, I made good progress this weekend.
Hope to get the drivetrain into the Jeep by the weekend!
Thanks to all those that helped me with the many questions I have had to date, I am sure I will have many more

Got the skid plate in place. Using the stock piece for now. It'll work just fine. Perhaps I'll look into a winter project to make it a better fit.
