86 CJ7 Firewall Bulkhead Connector

I've been 3D modeling the bulkhead connector so i can print a new one, that way i can rewire the jeep and discard my broken connector and just make me a new 3D printed one in a color to match my build.



Took me a while to do this, lots of little details in it, i'll be tackling the engine side connector next.

Very cool.
I believe the engine side is actually two pieces. Were you planning to make it that way?

Nice. I got a dozen or so connectors I’m going to send your way too...j/k.

Looking at your Jeep stats...should be nice solid setup...31-32” tires?

for the engine side connector, yes, i'm going to make it in two pieces just like the original, i'm even going to get some flexible filament and print the rubber gaskets for it down the road. Eventually, i plan to model all the connectors in the harness, but for now, i'm concentrating on the bulkhead connectors, it seems to be the most difficult, get it out of the way.



My CJ currently has 32 inch tires on it. Might go up to 35's after i get the body back on and the dana 44 front done. I'm still finishing up the driveline brake before i put the tub back on. I had a High Angle Driveline parking brake, but i didn't like it very well, i had some fitment problems with the AA hd output shaft housing. I took it off and got a PartsMike unit, i like it much better, no fitment problems at all with it so far. i'm going to print up some test brackets for the cable, and if i like the way they fit and look, i'll have them made out of steel. That's one of the pluses of the 3d printer, make it and test fit and if i need to change something, it's easy to do, and all i'm out is a little time and some plastic.

I'd be interested in a couple of the gaskets when you get to that point.
