Well, it has begun. After obtaining a set of 76/77 Bronco axles last September, I was finally able to get some time to start working on them.

Day 1:
With my trusty not-so-safe angle grinder, I cut the spring perches and shock mounts off the Ford 9 rear end. I then swapped out the discs and smoothed out the high spots.
<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/July-2009/Axle%20project%20001.jpg' height='768' width='1024'>

Leftover brackets (anybody want them?).
<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/July-2009/Axle%20project%20002.jpg' height='768' width='1024'>

This is something I found underneath one of the spring perch welds. No, I didn't maul the crap out of it with my angle grinder. This spot actually has quite a bit of weld on it still. I didn't want to make this one flush, as I don't want to make the hole bigger. It'll probably get filled up with weld when the new perches and shock mounts go on.

I got to start on the front Dana 44. These radius arm stops are going to take a very very very long time. After doing a bunch of reading, I was afraid that they were cast on. But after doing a bit of cutting, I'm through the weld on one side, and I see axle housing underneath it (very relieved).

Originally, I wanted to have this done by the Turkey Run this year. But seeing as I haven't had much time to even work on anything, my new goal will be for the 2010 April Fools Day run. Here is my list of TODOs:

* Finish & install D44
* Finish & install Ford 9
* Belly-up w/ fabbed skidplate & crossmember
* Spring-over with 2" (or smaller) springs (depending on how the D44 goes) + removal of body lift
* De-rust and repair holes in body -- DONE
* Flat fender the front
* Herculine the inside
* Make new CB antenna mount and move to passenger-side (drive-through madness) -- DONE
* Fix tire carrier -- DONE
* De-rust and repair my doors (they are pretty bad) -- DONE

I'd prefer to tube it, but at the very least I'm going to cut them down a bit. I'm dying for some wheeling. It's been waaay too long.

Day 2:

I managed to get the radius arm things and the coil spring perch removed. What I found interesting, is that I used 1 disc to remove everything on the Ford 9 and both radius arm mounts, but when I got to the coil spring mount it nearly ate an entire disc by itself! Also, the metal on the axle tube under the radius arm things looked like it had been laying on the deck of the Titanic. It took a bit to get all of the rust off of those spots.

I got a little deep on the radius arm thing cuts.

The leftovers from today. Alan, do you want these pieces?

Day 3: I've decided to drive it this winter until I get my axles 90% ready to go under. I got all of my tires dismounted, beads cleaned, re-cored, and rebalanced at Discount Tire. I even managed to talk them into putting a 31" inner tube in my spare that some jackwad had slashed back at my old house. I got it home, and started to work on some of its odds and ends.

Remember, the white wire on these means GROUND, the black and red are for the brake and tail lights. It messed with me a bit before I got it figured out. :)

To save wear and tear on the local drive-thrus, I moved my CB antenna mount from the driver-side to the passenger side.

Day 4:

Some of the rust patches that I've ignored for a couple of winters turned themselves into full-blown rust HOLES. I cut all of the infected metal out, and put the initial patch of fiberglass on them.
<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/September-2009/poop%20032.jpg'>

I wire wheeled several pounds of rust off of my frame and off of the bottom of my tub. I then slathered everything with metal ready and slogged POR 15 all over everything. It looks like the creature from the black lagoon crapped all over it.
<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/September-2009/poop%20033.jpg'>

I wrapped things up with an oil change and some fiberglass over the holes that were in my driver-side floorboard.

Days 5 & 6: I got the other taillight in and installed an electronic flasher (which subsequently got my turn signals working).

<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/September-2009/feces%20003.jpg'>

I decided to treat my entire frame. I wire wheeled the whole thing off (thank God for a 2 inch body lift), metal ready'd all of it, and then gave it a healthy dose of POR15. The next day after the POR15 was nice and cured, I primer'd all of it, and then used several cans of hammerite on the whole thing. It looks a LOT better. :)

<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/September-2009/feces%20002.jpg'>

I was getting down to the wire (was going camping the very next day), so I was hurried in my bondo and touchup of my fiberglassed rust holes on the driver side. I ran out of time sanding / bondoing / sanding / bondoing, and decided to just prime and paint where it was so I could get it done. After I painted it, I realized how faded the paint on my Jeep had become. I'm going to have to paint the whole side so it doesn't look weird (after I get everything else done and if I'm still motivated).

Day 7: Anybody who has seen my doors knows that they are trying to turn themselves back into iron ore. They are in rough shape, and I don't want to buy new doors (yet). So.. I decided to knock the rust off the driver side door and fiberglass the (numerous) rust holes that had emerged. I had bolt and washer plugging the hole where the non-functioning lock once was. I removed it and got it with some fiberglass as well.

<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/September-2009/feces%20004.jpg'>

Yes, I deliberately ignored the window frame. The only thing holding it on in the back is a very thin badly-rusted piece of metal. I picked up my brother's mig welder the other day, and so I think I'm going to try to get creative with that at a later date. Until then, that corner is going to stay rotten.

Days 8 & 9: Worked some more on the doors. More fiberglass, more bondo.

<img src='http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/October-2009/feces%20002.jpg'>

I tried my hand at mig welding. I seem to have reinvented the booger weld on one side, and other other side seems like it's "ok". After it cooled I grabbed and pulled at it and it seems solid. I'm going to weld a bar across the back and then reconstruct that part of the doorframe with fiberglass. That should be fun. :)

Days ??? (I'm done counting the days).

I've mostly reconstructed the window frame, and have put an ungodly amount of fiberglass and bondo in numerous places. The door on the left has it's initial coat of POR15, and the door on the right has it's first (real) coat of paint. On both doors where I'm rebuilding the frames I'm still in the process of sanding, forming, refiberglassing, and bondoing. This is taking a LOT longer than I thought it would... which just motivates me more to not make it look like complete shit.

I finally got the doors wrapped up. They BETTER not rust for awhile. :)

I also got around to removing that ganky piece of plastic from where my cowl vent used to live. I cut a piece of metal from an old computer chassis and welded it into the cowl then bondo'd.

Thanks! It ain't perfect, but it's looking better than it did. :)

I started to work on the rust on my windshield frame, and to my dismay.. the ENTIRE bottom is rotten. I need a new windshield frame. :(

Today was not a good day. I cracked my windshield in 2 places and spiderwebbed it in the passenger top corner. To top it off, my windshield repair job looks like complete and utter SHIT.

I don't have any pictures because I'm too pissed off about all of it.

It didn't help the cracks in my windshield any. :)

The good news is, that everything appears to be sealed up nicely. With all of the water and crap that was splashed up all over everything, my floor stayed dry all day (for the first time).

Mac has kindly offered to let me use his facilities to get my axles under my Jeep + figure out wtf is wrong with my drivetrain. I know I'll need some extra pairs of hands that weekend, is anybody up for it?

Parts list:
* New wheels x 5: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/USW-70-5855R/
* Steel braided brake lines:
* Front: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SJA-FBL77/
* Rear: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SJA-RBL77/
* Spring perches x 4: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-720025/
* U-bolts (FW spring)
* Shock mounts x 4: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/AAF-ALL60104/
* U-bolt brackets - Existing ones look like they will work just fine.
* Rear driveshaft yoke + lengthening (FW clutch) - yeah, not a part, just something I need to remember to get going
* Front driveshaft rebuild + yoke (FW clutch)
* Steering crap (no idea what I need yet) - EDIT - From what I've been reading, we may get lucky. We'll have to see how it sits after the axles are sitting loaded under it.
* Drivetrain parts (no idea what is even wrong yet)
* Body bolts (if I decide that I want to yank the body lift afterward) - I think I still have my old ones still. I'll have to look around & see.

Side trips - these always seem to eat the most time when working on something:
* Hauling the driveshafts to FW clutch after we have the measurements.
* Hauling the new wheels w/ my old tires to Discount Tire (or somewhere) to get re-mounted - I'm gonna need somebody w/ a pickup truck for this one. :)
* Get drivetrain parts
* Undoubtedly some miscellaneous parts runs

Am I missing anything?

Alan? You gonna help me with this thing? :)

I've somewhat researched it. I have a few days yet, so I'll be doing that leading up to it. I know I still need to grind off the rest of the radius arm things from the front & install those Warn hubs (as soon as I figure out how). The steering I think will be the weirdest part of this.

Ok.. I called FW spring, and they don't carry shock mounts. From what he says, we may have to "make" something.

I'm sure aftermarket brackets can be purchased someplace.. I just need to find out where.

[EDIT - Summit has them - butt cheap]

I talked to Chaz (since he's not in this forum) and he's on board. We'll figure out the exact times on the weekend for sure but I think you'll be fine Alan for Saturday afternoon after work.

And as far as the shock mounts if you can get something that is cheap to weld on that would be better I think cause there will be enough to do rather than cutting the old ones off and figure out how to make them good for the new axels. plus we can put them in the best place to help with ground clearance too.

I tried to pick up some U-bolts at FW spring, and the guy looked at me like I had 5 eyes when I told him what I was doing. He was very insistent that I put everything together, measure, and then come and get the U-bolts. I'm wondering how I would put things together w/o U-bolts?

Anyway, I drew him a freeking picture with measurements on it. I'm going to go back in and say "Make me 8 of these please".

Anyway, I drew him a freeking picture with measurements on it. I'm going to go back in and say "Make me 8 of these please".


i saw you posted about the axle diameters...get those and then measure the depth of your leaves and the depth of the spring perch. then add another inch or two to that and you'll be fine, make sure they have thread on them pretty far, we can always cut the excess off with a cut off wheel.

was it the guy with the thick glasses? tell em you're doing the project at the city cop with all the trailers house...

and to make the ubolts...

mac 'you have to explain your custom one offs to them...telling them what you exactly you need, they can make any size ubolt' gyvr

The wheels arrived. DAMN that was fast!!

I'm expecting my spring perches Monday or Tuesday. My brake lines are back-ordered, but should ship around 9/2. My shock mounts are scheduled to ship around 9/7 (cutting it close).

Yeah, I ordered those Skyjacker brake lines - that was before I saw Moose's post about that dude. Oh well. I won't have to dick around with the banjo crap with these anyhow.

Ok.. pushing almost a year later, and I'm on the verge of some more upgrades. The wheels for my axles are in, along with numerous other parts.

I'll post pics later. :)

Brad if you can't drive and want to come out, let me know if you need a ride. I would be more then happy to swing by and pick you up.

I am working Friday and Saturday night from 10p to 6am. I will need to sleep Saturday morning for a while. Tom and I are going to make contact Friday to figure out if the Jeep is coming over Friday or Saturday morning.

Alan, are you available Saturday morning? I would like someone who has done some wrenching in my garage that could help Tom Saturday morning get started while I get some sleep.

We'll figure it out and get it done.

my address is (PM me)


I will be drinking on Sunday.

I'll be bringing an arsenal of my own tools, so I can get started before anybody gets there. Who knows, maybe I'll have the old axles out before anybody gets in there. :)

It'll definitely be fun.

I'm bringing over what beer I have left. I'm definitely down for supplying food & drink all day for whomever helps - which should go w/o saying. :)

I got my axles, stands, tools, welder, 5 new wheels, and a 35" tire in the back of my Jeep. It looks like something out of a National Lampoon movie. :)

I'm planning on dropping it off tonight - mainly so macgyvr can get a listen to my drivetrain before I start pulling it apart. Tomorrow (probably late morning) I'm going to wrap up grinding on the dana 44, bust my load, and then use my angle grinder to remove the remaining pieces. When everybody starts showing up, we can start on the fun stuff. :)

Day #2 underway!

If somebody would be willing to drive a pickup truck, that would rock. We're at the point now to where having my tires mounted on my new 5-wide wheels would be advantageous. :)

Yo, sorry I didn't make it back yesterday. I had already told you I wouldn't be there today.

I had like that little tiny bit of rum sat when i was there, went home, didn't have any more. Sunday I pretty much sat around in massive pain.. I don't think alcohol is for me anymore. At least not liquor.. My gut is furious at me.

I think the last time I drank was 6 or so months back. All those years of iron gut'n it really musta did me in. :(

I feel like I let ya down, and I'm sorry.

BUT You can be sure I'm quite done being a stranger. So I'll keep my eyes open for something to come join in again soon.

The axles are in! A huge thanks goes out to macgyvr for the use of his garage & skillz, as well as chaz, Alan, Brad, and Chris for their help. There were too many pictures to post in here, so the link is here:

http://www.poopworld.net/pictures/Anthology/September-2010/

I dropped off the front / rear driveshafts at Fort Wayne Clutch this morning as well as stopped by the Brake Parts place on Sherman. As soon as Stan returns my email, I'll have the ball rolling on the drag link as well.

Yep.. it's his. Unfortunately, I don't have his #. I dropped him a PM though. If he doesn't get back with me, I'd say not to worry about it this weekend.

I haven't discussed the full steering thing with him yet. I'll call him tomorrow with the measurements that I'll have tonight. The only thing I've spoken with him about was just making a drag link -- which I've successfully been talked out of. :)

I have Chuck's number too. I also have his wife's number, his parents number, his in-laws number, and the number to his father-in-law's plumbing business, just in case anyone in the Kokomo area has any problems with their shitter.

Ehh.. I have no idea. This is a Jackie weekend, so I may be limited to a couple of hours in the evening Friday and Saturday evening.

So.. to elaborate. Friday evening after 8pm I plan on installing my freshly-redone drive shafts & my new brake lines. Depending on how late it gets, I may start bleeding the brakes. Beyond that, the only other thing I need to do is pick up a set of lugnuts and get the steering done - which will be during the week next week.

Hey Mac,

I plan on calling Stan tomorrow to see if he would be willing to meet up at your place with me around 6 or so that evening. Would that work ok for you?

Also, I'm planning on hooking up my drivetrain and front brakes, then bleeding the living hell out of everything.

The driveshafts and front brake lines are installed and gravity-bled.

Since I made the mistake of working on this turd on a Monday, I had to replace a number of rotten (ruined) hard brake lines. Those are done, and I don't see any more leaks. Unfortunately, I rounded off the bleeder screw on the driver-side rear. I looked at the passenger side, and it looked equally fun.. so it looks like I'm just going to buy new wheel cylinders and save myself some headaches.

Todo before Friday:
* Drill out my knuckles & pitman arm to 5/8" - anybody want to help me do that say.. Wednesday night? :)
* Replace my wheel cylinders - DONE
* Replace all of the drum brake hardware while you are at it - DONE
* Obtain my new steering from Stan & install it
* Gravity bleed entire system - DONE
* Install new rear brake line
* 2-man bleed the system until the brake pedal feels normal again

I'll have (hopefully) the rest of the parts to get this going by tomorrow. Would anybody be available to lend a hand at macgyvrs around.. 7:30pm or 8pm?

I'm going to head over there for a couple of hours tonight, and then plan on wrapping things up Wednesday night (provided I get no more surprises out of it). I'm giving Thursday night to the wifey since she will have the kids all weekend w/o any help from me.

I have to nap tonight...I didn't do well last night...then I had to get up early today for court.

Tom I never thought the steering would cost that much...that said as I add prices up in a my head i can see how it got to that price.

It will last a long time and probably not much different than a currie setup or the like...I know you weren't expecting that price tho.

This evening was a success. I got the wheel cylinders and other misc brake hardware swapped out, gravity-bled the entire system, and put it in gear for the first time since this operation started. My speedo is definitely now off by a major degree. :)

Tomorrow, I'm going to head back down to the Brake Parts people and see if they'll make me a new rear line. The one that came with the Ford 9 is leaky. After work, I'm going to pick up my steering, and it will be do or die tomorrow evening. :)

Whenever you want to man. I'll probably be out there until 10pm - unless we are really damned close on driving it out of there. In which case.. I'll be there until it's done. :)

The brakes work, and I picked up the last piece of my steering today. Tonight I plan on driving it home... FINALLY!!

Got the rest of the steering pieces yesterday from Branik. They did an awesome job! :2up: The drag link and tie rod are almost perfectly parallel!

I drove it to work this morning and realized that my passenger-side caliper is really hanging up, and my driver-side caliper is hanging up slightly. I also need to align things a bit better, as the front tires are humming going down the road. :) Beyond that.. driving with a spool in the rear is going to take a little getting used to.

Next year.. tires (finally).

The calipers have been changed, and I did a hillbilly alignment job using a tape measure, 2 boards, and a series of bungee cords. :) It turned out that I was towed out quite a bit. I took it a test drive, and it was significantly easier to steer.. and it didn't pull to the right anymore!

So far, I'm very very happy with the way this thing drives. I took it down the highway for the first time today, and it comfortably was able to maintain 70+ w/o much effort. Even the "holy crap this thing is a deathtrap" feeling went away in the steering with this upgrade! My only issue, is that this spool is shredding my rear tires. I know spools are more predictable and all on the trail, but I'm thinking maybe a manual / air / electronic locker may be in order instead. I don't want my new tires (next year) to only last me a year. :)

mine lasted 3 years, and they still have 40%. just rotate them very often. I would of liked to seen more life out of them, but the spool will eat them up a bit faster

Ok, it is now time to start gathering more parts. I wasn't intending on an engine upgrade for awhile.. but the opportunity (ie - excuse) starts now.

I've found an engine out of an 89 Mustang 5.0 complete, running, with wiring harness and computer. I'm going to swing out with a deposit, and the owner is going to pull it from the vehicle for me over the next week or so.

What are you going to do for a tranny?
I have a small block bell, 4x4 tail C6 that I'll make you a hell of a deal on.
I also have an SM465 mated to a D300 tcase, put the output would be on the wrong side for your axle...

Parts list to get (for now - there will most definitely be lots more):
* transmission out of Dodge 2500 (this is gonna hurt)
* bellhousing, flywheel, clutch, master / slave cylinders, everything in between, etc out of 86 F250
* Novak motor mounts: http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/engine_mounts/mmx-wf1.htm
* AA transmission to t-case adapter: http://www.advanceadapters.com/products/pn-50-0204/
* AA 23-spline t-case input gear (one of these - not sure which one yet): http://www.advanceadapters.com/products/pn-716053a/ or http://www.advanceadapters.com/products/pn-716054a/
* Fuel pump for 89 Mustang (I'm going to see if the guy I bought the motor from has one laying around)

If needed (probably will):
* Oil filter relocation kit: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-G4985-1/
* Exhaust manifolds out of 86 F250

So here is my haul from today's trip to the boneyard. They came off of an 88 F-250 with a bigass V8 of some form in it. They will bolt right on to the Mustang engine that I picked up. Also note that I grabbed the master / slave clutch assembly. From my reading, it appears that the Jeep one won't push the rod out far enough to disengage the Ford clutch. If you are considering this swap, note how this bell housing looks. AA states to get a "Ford truck bellhousing & clutch assembly", but doesn't go on to say what good donors would be. I can say with a small degree of confidence that I saw quite a few bellhousings that did NOT look like this in many F-150s. From more of my reading, I found a really good writeup that included lots of pictures that somebody did for this particular swap. I don't know if others would work. I just knew for sure that this one would. That saved me a whole lot of time.

Also bear in mind that if you grab this kind of stuff off of a straight-6, you will need to get the flywheel rebalanced to be kosher for the 302.

A HUGE thanks goes out to Alan for helping me get this crap out today! That would have been complete and utter ass with just 1 person - especially since they don't allow the use of jacks. :horse:

Last night we drank some beer, removed my fenders, remove the transmission & t-case, and ground the existing mounts off of my frame.

The newest edition to my parts pile: an nv3550. Thanks dirtydan! :tu2:



Now that the drivetrain has all been figured out, it's time to order an input gear for the transfer case as well as my bellhousing adapter.

New T-case input gear and tranny to motor adapter ordrered. Barring the inevitable unforeseen, I should hopefully have enough parts to get the drivetrain all hooked together and physically attached to the Jeep. Now all I need is time... *fart*

This weekend I managed to get the Ford bellhousing attached to the Rubicon transmission. The adapter was spot on, however I forgot that "slight" modifications to the bellhousing were required - namely, hacking a chunk out of the top to clear the shift rod. I remember them mentioning that previously, but for some odd reason I was still surprised when I read the instructions. Another surprising tidbit was that I had to saw off 1/4 inch of the input shaft on the transmission. It was on the front page of the instructions. That's something that would have been nice to know about ahead of time. Anyway, done and done with that. There's no going back now.

I also got the rest of the old motor perch pieces ground off of the frame. They aren't flush. I'll see where the new ones need to go before I have to do that.

Last night I tried to mount the tranny to the engine via use of the motor slut. It didn't go so well. :/ I need some real guide bolts, and possibly smooth out the edges of the input shaft so it'll go into the pilot bearing a bit easier. While I am sort of stopped, I noticed that the rear main seal on the engine leaks. I guess it's time to get that Haynes to see what all that will entail.

Finally, the driver-side exhaust manifold is in no way going to work as is. It's right up against where the PLASTIC slave cylinder would mount. I want to do a test fit before I decide it both exhaust manifolds will need modified / completely swapped out before I buy two of them.

I have a few pictures. I'll post them up later.

you mentioned the tranny input shaft and the pilot bearing... be sure the pilot bearing is the right diameter for the input shaft. Once on an engine swap in a CJ I had a heck of a time getting them to mate. Finally figured out that the ID of the pilot bearing was 1/16" to small in diameter.

I did a test fit on the input shaft before I started cutting anything up. It fits perfectly. :)

I got the rear seal in. That took a whopping 5 minutes flat. :) That should have been a sign of things to come.

I tried and failed for several hours to mate that transmission to my engine. For a sanity check, it will mount up smoothly if I loosen up the pressure plate bolts so that the clutch will slide around. The clutch alignment tool I had left over from my AX-5 isn't going to cut it. I need to get a real one if I have a prayer of getting this thing to line up correctly.

I ordered a set of block hugger headers off of Summit Racing. They should be here next week, so if I fail AGAIN to get this transmission mounted, at least I should be able to mess around with those. The stock headers put the exhaust directly against the plastic slave clutch cylinder. I did quite a bit of reading, and most people recommended the "shorty" style of block hugger header, as it gives you the most options on how you can route your exhaust. I have the pieces from the original exhaust that have the O2 sensor bungs, so I'll be in good shape there.

Anyway, thanks for coming out to help Brad! It made life a LOT better trying to get that tranny mounted - even though we failed miserably.

So Advance Adapters sent me a "How are things going?" followup email. I explained to them my difficulties, and they are sending me a free clutch alignment tool on their dime, and just in time for the weekend! :tu2: :tu2:

I am very impressed.

Alan: You just missed us. I was getting really angry at my transmission, so rather than chuck a container of brake fluid at somebody (again), I decided to call it. :)

So, in the week or so that you've had the Zebras, how much have they ate? Do you just let them graze in your yard, that way you don't have to mow?

To be honest, they are kind of a pain in the ass. They only eat certain patches leaving the yard bare in spots and a foot high in others. They chase the kids around when they go outside. They make mountainous piles of crap that hide in the tall grass, which subsequently gets hit by the mower. They kick the fence down and get out all of the time, and they have gnawed through the fiber optic line running into my house a couple of times. :td:

This weekend was a resounding success. With the AA-supplied clutch alignment tool, the transmission slid on right away & fits perfectly. We got the engine & transmission bolted together & hoisted into the engine bay. The last part of the evening was spent trying to find the best place to locate the motor. In order to ensure good clearance between the front of the oil pan and the D44 front that I have, I had to slide the engine pretty far back towards the firewall. It won't go so far back as to make it hard to work on (I can still comfortably get my hands behind it), and the transmission shifter is perfectly centered in the factory YJ opening. So far so good. Alan has some pictures - maybe he can be convinced to post them up? :)

I have to do some more grinding on the frame to remove more of the old mounts. It turns out that the new Novak Adapter mounts will be about an inch forward of the old ones, so I need to make it flush where the new ones need to go.

One issue I do have is that as it sits right now, the engine will be lower than I am comfortable with. I still do have my 2 inch body lift, and still plan on retaining it. I would like to take advantage of it, and mount the engine a bit higher. There is still plenty of room under the hood.

I was thinking about obtaining some square steel tubing the same width as my frame, welding it to the top, and welding 1/4" steel plate to either side in order to make the frame slightly "higher" where the mounts would be attached. It would end up with the mounts being half on the stock part of the frame, and half on the extended part if I went that route. I'm going to try to get some pictures of this mocked up with what I have in mind.

What's everybody's thoughts on doing this?

I don't see a problem with your motor lift idea. I would seal the ends of the new tube to make them more solid, and not hold mud/water.

Fish mouth or diamond shape your side plates on the frame/newframe to give you a lot more weld surface and you'll be set forever. Probably way stronger than you'll ever need. :)

Also thinking 3/16 plate would be enough.

Where is a good place to buy pieces of steel for something like this?

Tom I would definately reccommend Metal Supermarket for this project. You can tell them exactly the measurements you need and they will cut it for you. Then you don't have a bunch of left over scrap, only buy what you need. C Henry is cheap, but you get large pieces that you'll have to get in something to get home (yes I know Alan has a truck that he's dying to use :) ) and its usually dirty and you'll have to cut it down to fit with lots of leftover.

Metal Supermarket was $35 for 2 6-inch pieces of 2.5 x 2.5, and C Henry wants the same for a 12-foot piece.

I don't mind having some extra of this stuff around. I want to make some other stuff too (at some point), so it will be fine. :)

Alan: Do you have any plans for Saturday morning? :)

$15 worth of steel purchased, frame marked, and engine back out - thanks to Alan!

My goal for this weekend = engine mounts welded in.

It's in:


My idea of adding to the frame seem to have worked out pretty well. Please bear in mind that I'm not done with them. I'm going to weld pieces on either end of the tubes and a big piece across the outside. My welds are hideous, but they pass the "beat the hell out of it with a big sledge hammer" test.

The transmission shifter is going to be in an awesome spot. :)


A HUGE thanks to Chris (Jeeper4Life), Brad, and Mont3 for the help getting this beast in last night!

Actually.. yes! I'm taking the next couple of days off of work to give the wife some badly-needed breaks, as well as work on this. I went to C-Henry steel to pick up some metal for the transmission crossmember that I'm going to make - a whopping $35. I love that place. :)

I've removed the rest of the exhaust, and will be doing some more random things to it this evening. I want to get it into a shape where it can safely sit outside without worrying about moisture creeping into places it shouldn't (open engine components, a shifterless transmission, etc).

Gold Bold won't cure that itch!

Got the block hugger headers in:

The instructions lacked any mention of having to modify the dipstick tube. Oh well. I hope that won't be a problem how I have it mounted.
Tight fit, but no contact anywhere.



The manifold is contacting the rubber portion of the motor mount. I dislike this immensely. Does anybody have any ideas? Could I find a piece of fiberglass and wrap it around the manifold here?



I hope these don't have to come out any time soon. All of the bolts needed to be torqued to 35 foot-pounds. I would say that 30% of the bolts are inaccessible by any form of a torque-wrench and had to be tightened down with a regular open-ended wrench.

I DO like where it routes the exhaust. It will be nice and out of the way of the starter as well as the clutch slave cylinder!

take a ballpeen hammer and clearance that tube... (yeah, I'm sure you won't like that idea), it shouldn't affect your flow that much... that and possibly shave down that rubber/poly mount a little bit...

...and then add a heat shield between the two. Just a piece of sheet metal with an air gap on both sides should help alot.

Today was a whole lot more productive than I thought it would be.
I wanted to reuse my old YJ shifter. Using the sleeve that came with the nv3550, I welded them both together. Not pretty.. but nothing on my Jeep is. :)



I got started on my transmission crossmember. The stock skid plate is going bye bye, and after I get this thing all together (2 more pieces like you see in the picture + other odds and ends so I can bolt the nv3550 mount to it), I'm going to bolt a big f-ing piece of plate steel to the bottom.

Lastly today, I swapped out the input gear on my np231 transfer case. I found a writeup that made life really really nice. The only reason I didn't get it done, is because the family came home from Turnstone - which made it bathtime for the kids. Here's a link to the writeup for this: http://www.mallcrawlin.com/forum/showthread.php?17376-NP231-input-shaft-swap-write-up.



I am thinking about the clearancing idea for the exhaust manifold. It kind of bones me that it turned out like that. I may end up pulling it off, and just moving that pipe up about half an inch. There appears to be plenty of room for it. After I do that, I'll see what I can put together as far as a heat shield as suggested above.

I took the last couple of days off of work to do these things. I want to get it so I can push it out into the driveway without worrying about the elements damaging something that's exposed. I also don't want jacks or come-alongs, or any other prosthetic device supporting anything.

Did you run sleeves through the frame where these bolts are? Or did you just run the bolts clear through?
If you didn't sleeve it, you'll probably want to consider it, the "clamping" force can start to crush the frame, and the bolts won't stay tight, plus can result in frame damage. That is one issue with a fully boxed frame...

I'm planning on sleeving it at some point. I want to get it built first. :)

Good call on the sleeveing. It's pretty easy to do but overlooked by many. I sleeved my front bumper even. LOL!

Also make sure you DO NOT solid mount that trans/xfer case. It needs to move around. Poly performance has some nice(pretty cheap) poly bushings in tubes that can be welded in place to give you some play. I used a couple for my motor mounts on the godzirra project.

The transmission came with a poly-ish looking mount on the bottom. I was going to attach the whole works via that thing.

Alan came over and we got the transfer case back together and installed on the back of the nv3550. My rear driveshaft appears to need to grow another 4 inches now (good - better angle; bad - I JUST had it resized last year for my axle swap :doh: ). This time, I'm going to only have the rear done (by somebody cheaper than FW Clutch), and I'm going to roll the dice and shorten the front one myself.

I also had to clearance the transmission mount piece I just made so that the front driveshaft would even clear. I am NOT posting pictures of it until I clean up the welding mess I made out of it. :) I am happy with it, it's just ugly (no surprises there).

The exhaust manifold against the motor mount problem is now solved. I cut some square "washers" out of quarter-inch steel plate, and welded them to the top of the motor mount piece that bolts to the block - resulting in lifting the engine 1/4 inch (go figure). Due to the magic of geometry, this gave me about 1/3 inch of clearance between the rubber mounts and the manifolds.

I'm really happy with how that turned out. I'll get some pics up later!

On an unrelated note, I decided to mock together the rest of the front end with that Mustang radiator. I don't see any way in hell that thing is going to fit unless I hack the hell up out of my front end. I'm going to do some more reading to see what other kinds of radiators will go in there w/o having to do that. :/

Get with me I may have an aluminum that might work for your application. I'll let you test fit it too and make you a good deal if it works.

Here is the bracket with the quater-inch spacers welded on:


The next series of pictures should illustrate my radiator problem pretty clearly:

I don't remember mentioning this before, but thanks (again) to the block hugger headers from Summit, I cannot use my stock starter. After doing some reading, this is a common thing. :doh:

Of course the first place I went directed me to a nice shiney new $400 Mean Green gear reduction starter. As sweet as that would have been.. $400 for a starter?! Anyway, it is looking like the stock starter out of a 93 will do the trick. I need to find my damned tape measure so I can triple-check though (I really need to have 5 of those laying around as often as I loose them).

89 starter vs 93 starter

I found the tape measure. Back portion of the mini-starter can be no longer than 6 inches. The stock starter's back portion is 7.

Sorry for all of the posts. I want to record things that I find on here so everything is in one place. :)

Mac: If your radiator doesn't work out, I found out that the radiator for a 4.2L YJ will work just fine. It will bolt right in, and the inlet & outlet are in the same place as the Mustang radiator.

I love using stock parts. :)

I'm thinking more about the fuel system. My reading contradicts itself pretty heavily in this aspect. Some say that the in-tank 2.5L fuel pump and lines will be fine, others say that it will not be adequate.

I'm also kicking around the idea of converting everything to an external EFI fuel pump setup. Thoughts?

Ok, the Mustang 5.0 fuel pump specs (at around 40 to 50 psi):
* Stock everything = 88 to 92 lph (23 to 24 gph)
* Small upgrades = 110 to 155 lph (29 to 41 gph)

The YJ 2.5L fuel pump specs (at around 45 psi):
* Stock = 80 lph (21 gph)

There we have it. It looks like it will work, it would just be a bit anemic. So.. I'll stick to my original plan of "doing something with the fuel system". ;)

I'm sure that an E2000 fuel pump will run that motor.

I will PM on the radiator. I'm working a double today.

The only issue with the 2.5 fuel pump would likely be if you were to run the motor at higher RPMs, the injectors would not get as much fuel as they needed. But, being realistic, how likely are you to run this motor at high RPMs?

I'm pretty sure I'm going with an external one. I like the idea of being able to get to it if I need to. :)

My tranny mount is done. I just need to clean up the welds, POR 15 it, then paint it.

I also scored a pretty sweet radiator off of Macgyver. I don't have to hack up my grill now! :tu2: Now I just need to figure out if I have enough room for a pulling fan. :?



EDIT - Ok, maybe it's not done. I'm going to drill some random holes in it for drainage purposes.

The transmission mount is done, painted, and ready to go in. I crawled underneath to survey the frame - and there was a rather significant amount of rust under there again. Apparently, whatever the skid plate had covered up was really getting scaly. I got that all wire wheeled off, and I noticed that everything near the fuel filter & fuel filter plate had obviously spent time on the bow of the Titanic. I removed all of that, cut off the e-brake brackets, and wire wheeled all of the rust from all of there. I got all of the metal treated, brake cleanered off, and primed.

Related to all of that, I cut out a rusthole that had formed in the bottom quarter of my tub. It's going to need quite a bit of fiberglass-age to get it right. It looks like something took a bite out of my Jeep at the corner closest to the rear tire. That will be next week's project.

I started wrapping up the odds & ends related to the motor mounts this evening. I got the ends of the tubes capped, and I was in the process of welding on the backing plate, and my welder jammed. It always jams, but this time, a piece of the flux-core wire got stuck inside of the tube just past where it comes out of the feeder. I pulled all of the rest of the wire out of the wand, and pulled it out of where it was still in the feeder. Anybody have any ideas on how to get that last piece of wire out of there?

Driver-side motor mount complete & painted:


Belly-up transmission mount complete & mounted:


The gaping hole I cut out of my tub to remove rotten metal.


Another shot of the tranny mount:


The hood back on and a tarp wrapped around the motor to keep the elements off of it (for now):


The passenger side motor mount finally completed and painted. You can also see the 93 Mustang starter that bolts right in and clears the header! That 88 starter that came with the motor was HUGE. I decided (for no apparent reason) to reinstall my battery tray as well.

Yep! It's all all 4s by itself. It is officially a "roller". :)

My next plan - wiring. This will require lots of friends coming over to help me drink beer.

Great work!! Still waiting on someone to plow into the back of my Yukon so I can take the 6.0L and stuff it in my Jeep!

Ordered electric fuel pump, and am going to order something like this to plumb it in - as soon as I figure out what all I am going to need.

Tonight wasn't entirely productive. I seem to have grossly underestimated the complexity that will be involved when doing my wiring. It doesn't help that I'm low on sleep. :/

To make a long story short (and make my day happier), would somebody with a 4 cylinder YJ be willing to swing by my place around 7pm tomorrow? I want to identify all of the random plugs that I have on my old wiring harness so I know what all I need to keep. I've been hunting for awhile online to find a good diagram, but I'm not having much luck. I can find schematics all day long, but nothing that IDs plugs on the harness. Once I can do that, I'm going to snap some pictures so I can put together a plan for next weekend.

We did do that today. Thanks for bringing it by! You saved me hours and hours of hunting.

Both of my wiring harnesses are all (mostly) labeled and ready for surgery. Here are some pics of the YJ one:



I plan on getting some pictures of each of the plugs.

I finally found some useful information for my electric fuel pump setup.

http://www.302w.com/Windsor_MegaSquirt_Part1.aspx

Now I can order parts online at Black "Sheeple" Friday prices - on something I was going to have to buy anyway. :)

A word to the wise. The particular hose he calls out in his writeup will hold a max of 50 psi. My pump can deliver around 95 psi. Instead, I have this coming: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RUS-632090/

It can handle 1000 psi. :)

I finally found what I was looking for on the last part of that Ford harness. They have both the alternator wires (which I need) combined in with all of the external lighting (what I don't need).

Now as soon as I figure out where to splice into the Red / White and White / Red wires, I'll be golden and it'll be ready to go in.

Here is what is left out of the headlight harness from the Mustang engine. After I am 100% positive, those bundled wires are getting removed. I wouldn't have used any of it - but I do need the alternator wiring. :)

The JeepStang harness all soldered together (with only a couple of exceptions):


This is how my mess is sitting right now. This is the point to where I am asking myself: "What in the HELL was I thinking?!" It's daunting, and frankly, I am going to be downright shocked if my engine starts and runs on the first try with all of my lights, etc working properly. I have a pit in my stomach that I've introduced several gremlins that are going to haunt me for the next several years. :(


Anyway.. onward and upward. The negative goes here:


The good news, is that the trottle cable is exactly the right length to reach the throttle body. The bad news, is that it's not exactly going to hook up nicely - which isn't exactly shocking. Nothing about this project has gone "smoothly".


I picked up a bracket that holds the old YJ throttle cable at Pick-A-Part for a couple of bucks. Now I just need to find a way to attach the end of the cable to it. :?

My engine (for whatever random very odd reason) did not come with a coil. I picked up one off of an F-150 for a few bucks at Pick-A-Part.

My list of current things that I still need to figure out before I am willing to put power to it:
* Run positive from battery to starter.
* Run positive from battery to relay box (in one of 2 places that I can see..?)
* Hook up starter relay to the starter
* Hook up coil & figure out where the hell it is supposed to mount
* Find out how to hook my fuel pump to the fuel pump relay that came with the engine
* Obtain some molded heater hoses that will hook up to the heater hose hookups on the back of the engine.. that are about 4 inches from the back of the firewall
* Hook up heater hoses while you can still get to everything relatively easily
* Mock up the grill and temporarily hook up the lights
* Find another starter bolt & bolt up the starter
* Figure out how the starter needs to be wired to the starter relay I picked up at Pick-A-Part today
* Hook everything up to the battery, turn the key on, and see if the lights, signals, etc all still work
* Make sure the engine isn't completely void of oil
* Bump the starter to see if it cranks.
* If no apparent shorts or problems, hook up the computer & turn the key on - look for smoke
* Does the fuel pump relay click?

AFTER that crap is all untangled (which could easily be past Spring), here is the general list that still needs tackled:
* Top off the transmission & transfer case with fluid - make sure tranny is in neutral still
* Drop gas tank, pull out fuel pump & run a tube to bypass the pump
* Reinstall gas tank with bypassed & disconnected fuel pump
* Run fuel line & return line
* Install new external fuel pump with in-line filter
* Find good place to mount fuel pump & filter and mount them
* Make radiator support & attach radiator
* Obtain Taurus (or similar) electrical fan
* Mount electrical fan
* Remove, clean up, and reinstall oil pan with new gasket
* New oil & filter (duh)
* Hook up Mustang power steering to Jeep steering gearbox
* Figure out and hook up dangling vacuum lines
* Make vane attempt to start the engine - beat brains in for a couple of days and not get it figured out. Give up and move on to something else for awhile.

Assuming that I got it running, this list will be considered the home stretch - probably sometime in 2013 :/
* Plan exhaust layout and routing
* Obtain turbo mufflers
* Install exhaust
* Remove mini-spool (find an e-locker or cable locker vs finding set of spider gears and running open-diff)
* Finish modifying body to accept Ford F-250 master clutch cylinder
* Hook slave cylinder to bell-housing & test motion - may need to get a new slave & shift fork assembly if it doesn't move right
* Measure new driveshaft lengths
* Take front driveshaft to macgyvrs, cut it to length with his chopsaw (so it's straight), and weld it back together
* Send off the rear driveshaft to someplace competant to get lengthened and balanced, yet not overwelmingly expensive (like Fort Wayne Clutch)
* Figure out how best to attach transfer case shifter mechanism - probably will need to make a bracket for it
* Make new tunnel cover with shifter boots
* Reinstall fenders
* Hook up air filter you have laying around to cold air intake
* Find permanent home for relay box, and misc other free-floating engine compartment items. Keep future snorkel stuffs in mind so you don't put something that will just have to get moved later.
* After the rear driveshaft comes back, jack it up so all fours are off of the ground, start it up and put it in gear - see if anything comes flying off

* Patch up rust holes & spraypaint
* 35" BFG Mud Terrains!
* Get insurance and plates for it - provided the world hasn't ended yet

Assuming that it's driveable now - probably when my kids are in college, here is the wrap-up:
* Make & install track bar assembly for front axle
* Obtain ARB snorkel tube - will a TJ one have a diameter large enough for the 302 to breathe ok?
* Find a home for Brad's old airbox
* Modify the cold air intake to attach to the airbox
* Hook the snorkel to the other side of the airbox
* Fix your damned doors!
* New rear seatbelts of some form or fashion
* Finish making skidplates
* Install the rest of the skidplates and armor that you have laying around still

NOW it can be wheeled. Any questions? Have I missed anything? Is there something that anybody sees that I may have overlooked?

Since you are trying to capture everything...

Make there is fuel in the tank when trying to start

This might of been covered in a post above but don't they make a wiring harness for a set up like this? I'm guessing its kinda salty though?

damn! I was thinking maybe 500 or 600 bucks. So if you bought that thing, could you pull it right out of the box and plug everything in and be done though?

Does anybody have an old 88-93 Ford 302 distributor laying around that I could possibly have? It can be junk.. just as long as the shaft is intact. I want to recirculate the oil in this motor periodically while it sits... waiting for me to get to it again. :monkey:
