Dave how did you modify the CJ sending unit for the wiring? I'm hitting a u-pull-it junkyard later today so I'll have to see if there are any easily accessible GM TBI truck gas tanks to steal parts from.

I drilled a hole and used the GM connector. Because of room constraints I had to change the wiring to the pump. On the GM unit,there is two wires in the tank. In my new, unit there is but one. Just to power the pump.

More questions; Novak adapters engine mounts, where they weld in? Is anyone using the M.O.R.E Bombproof units?

My engine and tranny combo came out of a 92' Caprice. I've sourced an 82' 4wd 700r4 for the output shaft. The caprice was a police car so the trans had the "K" on the case (3/4 ton). I've got two harnesses. One from the police car and one from a 91 S10 Blazer I sourced my TBI for a 4.2 upgrade. I've got the computer from the caprice as well as a few from 4.3l Chevy V6s.

Thanks Sportin,

I'm thinking of using Novak for the engine mounts, trans/TC adapter as well as the rad and fan set up. How about some pics of the engine bay and install?

I completed the chevy 350 conversion on my 83 CJ7 renegade about 15 years ago and at that time I ran a carb with a Ron Gant wiring harness. I blew through the T5 trans and the D20 rear. Replaced the trans with an SM420 and a D44. Blew through the D44 and finally turned the page to a custom built Currie ford 9 inch. I used advanced Adaptors for all of the conversion adaptor parts (motor mounts, belhousing and trans to trans case). Got sick of the primaries carb set up and the Stone Age trans...

I am now upgrading to TBI with a 700R4 auto trans. I'm in the middle of the upgrade now and got the parts from a wide array of resources.. A donor chevy blazer provided the intake, tbi, computer and harness. I paid $100 bucks from a craigslist add. The trans I sourced and had rebuilt from a well known trans shop in the Bay Area.. Paid a good amount.. The heavy duty version of the 700R4 is getting hard to find.. I get the electric fuel pump and a new wiring harness from Howell for $500. Lots of smaller parts from Summit have been delivered to rebuild gaskets, new exhaust manifolds, ect, ect.. Can't wait to fire it up.. Almost there..
