I had a Ford E100 with that 300 ci I-6 in it. They don't have as much power as the Jeep 4.0L, but have a little more torque. Its a bigger, heavier block, even older design...but damn its BULLETPROOF! They run forever and are indestructable.

And they have the same stupid problem with cracking a manifold/header.

I have a cracked header again on my I6 and this is the 6th. I think I have the soultion to the problem this time. Motor swap.

I just sold my cherokee to my grand-father yesturday and I'm fixing to have to make the call on weither to start buying parts for my 5.0 swap or to puke up $850 on a 30K mile 4.0L... I'd hate to put another 4.0L in the jeep for $850, but my wife is getting "ichy palms" about driving something besides the mini-van ( although I've offered to drive it, and let her take my G35 ). She wants the jeep running like tomorrow, she doesn't want delays or anymore downtime. I wanna do the 5.0... I've got $1000 to work with, so I think I can do it within that budget, and I'd feel like i was wasting $850 if I just put another under powered, over priced 4.0L in it.

If my jeep was a pre-2000, then I'd be all over a cherokee engine or something, but they are proud of those 2000+ wrangler 4.0ls !!! I can buy an entire running/driving 91+ cherokee for less than the 2000+ motor cost...

Can you go into more detail on how you spliced the wiring harness together w/ the Jeep body harness and whatnot?

I'm really interested in getting the tach, oil pressure, coolant temp, and whatnot to work properly.

most of it i used the jeep wiring and sensors such as the oil pressure and coolant temp. volts automatically work. tach gets alittle tricky and wont be right but i atleast wanted it moving so you have to apply the tacj signel to the crank postion sensor wire and the cam postion sensor wire on the computer This is for a 97 so dont take it to heart but should get you started

I'm good with everything on that, other than the "CCD bus" on the C-harness. What's CCD bus ?
That's cool the jeep sensors basiclly work with the ford engine. I thought I was going to have to tap my jeep sensors in WITH the ford sensors.

Good stuff...

Here's a page I found that may help people. http://www.fordfuelinjection.com/?p=6

that whole site helps. had it saved in my favorites along time ago. the only wires i even messed with are the crank and cam the rest i neever touched but just so you know the ccd data bus wires are twisted together and are the two wires that run your gauges

Here is the connectors you will use. The ford racing harness they used forever was a carryover from the 92-93 mustang. The easiest way to identify it is by the fuel pump relay. If it has a relay within about 6 inches of the computer then it is a newer harness. as far as you needing the 02 harness as far as i know they work from 87 to 93. mine was an 89 harness

This is the bellhousing you will want. When you get it try to get the slave cylinder two with a chunk of the line still attached. When you get it home cut the line off but leave the fitting. cut the line off you jeep slave and once it is all mounted you will be able to figure out where to cut the jeep hose then use a small lighter heat the hose up and slide over the ford ftting leave it extra long so you can practice a few times

Love this thread! I've been wanting to do this for a while and the wiring has been the hardest part for me to figure out. Thanks for all the good info!

427cid, can you post up some more pics ? I promise I won't complain.. Just take a crap load of pics... Under, over, sides etc.

My buddy at work has convinced me to let him TRY to make me an adaptor plate. He's the best fabricator I know, so I wouldn't be suppised if he does. Then I'll just have to buy a clutch for $35. Saves about $150 over the advanced A set-up. Well see though.

It would be steel vs alum. but I don't see any issue there.. If it works out, maybe I'll have him build like 4 at once...
