Shared a few BL's with old school last night, and all I can say is WOW. Derek is in the zone and banging this thing out.

Also found out that I still have a jeep.

Thanks buddy, I'm trying to get you motivated to finish ol black before we have to burry her........

I cut the grill a bit more last night to mock up the radiator, the grill is actually crooked at this point, I need to open it up a bit more around the front hoops to get it straightened out. It is very apparent from the top shot looking down at the grill and crossbar. I finished plumbing and wiring the trans cooler, wired up the torque converter disconnect relay as well as the trans cooling fan relay, a lot of looming and soldiering. Shit takes forever.

I'm looking to start ring and pinions in the next few days, the axles should come out one more time before they go back in.

I also got a bunch of fittings from summit for the remote oil filter. The kevco pan is -10 and the filter is -8. That requirs a couple of reducers, It looks like shit and I have to come up with something else. I also need to add a T in line to adapt the oil preasure sending unit. Any ideas? I really don't want this mess under my hood.

just wrap all those fittings in duct tape, that will make it blend in under the hood.

Looks like there is an NTP fitting on yout oil filter adapter. Check out XRP for an adapter, they have a great selection.

1/2" NPT to -10 p/n 981613
3/8" NPT to -10 p/n 981611

One of those would eliminate a bunch of that mess.
Also, check out the push lock fittings (barbed push-on) They package WAY easier than the SS lines, and to together easy.

For the other side, use a -10 tee with the same adapters above.

If you want to save $$, bush down from -10 to -8 at your pan and run all smaller stuff. I'm sure -8 is plenty for your remote oil filter.

There are also 90 degree NPT x -8 (or whatever size) that may make your life easier. I used those on my oil accumulator with no issue.

Check out XRP p/n 982288. There are some big $$ forged swivel versions of this too if you do some digging.

Gotta love plumbing. I probably spect 20+ hrs going through catalogs trying to figure out what I needed.

Good luck.

Holy fitting contraption son!!

You could have bought 7 cases of BL for what those cost.

Sounds like the guy in the last post has the hot set up to streamline your operation.

Thanks for your help, I'll give that a look. I'm somewhat stuck with braided line, or I need something more heat resistant that rubber, I have to route the oil lines somewhat near my exhaust.

Thanks WideJ, you helped out a ton, I don't know why this was giving me the mind F&#* but it was. I endened up with 2- 1/2npt-10an adapters to go from my -10 SS braid to my filter adapter. I ended up with a fitting to put my oil pressure sender in the galley plug behind the power steering pump, here are a couple of pics of what I bought. Now I can send back about $75.00 worth of stuff to summit.

Well, when asking for advice never underestimate the power of everyone's inner smart ass to come right out.

By the way Josh wins that one.

Better luck next time guys.

I finished up the wiring last night and got the fuel pump mounted. More plumbing tonight, going to work on the oil filter, and the oil pressure sender, and the fuel lines to the rail. After that its fuel and push the key to see if it will turn over.

you can see I have a few fuses that attach directly to the battery, I tried to to convince msyelf to jsut put a fuse block under the hood but I was worried about water and mud and wanted something a little more weather tight, the relays are exposed, but they should survive.

Set up the 14 bolt last night, thanks for you help, you know who you are. Also got the oil pressure sender in, not my preferred way to do it but had to clear the power steering pump. Bishop hit the 1492 pretty hard last night, he was race ready, then crashed pretty hard.....Check out our redesigned press, I think Robby Bobby would have been proud.

I hope I can have it done by then......might have to catch next years!

I got some work done tonight, painted the 14 bolt, need to pull the hubs and grease the bearings, assemble and put the brakes on and its ready to go.

Got the new PND switch for the trans installed, got the atlas shifters in and had to drop back and punt on the others. My cutting brakes were mounted between the seats right where my trans shifter needs to go, and they were butted up to the heater. Did some rearranging and ended up with the photos, i think it will work good.

Got all the shifters mounted, the cutting brakes re-mounted and relocated the heater above the cutting brakes.

STOP!


You are at risk of hyper-dehydration!

I do not see any cup holders.

You better tear this thing down and start over...........

they will wither be on top of the heater or on the floor in front of the atlas shifters.

I finished shoring up the shifters and the heater tonight. I started on the cage to front hoop tie-in. I know its probably overkill, but I'm mind f#$%@! myself so bad over this frame that I'm taking extra precaution. On the advice of a good friend that runs a cj he recommend tie-ing the front of the jeep into the A-pillar in some sort, so I did. I worked with what i had as far as room and obstacles. This is how it turned out.
