Sweet! Ive seen the scrambler there before. I had mine there last year.




I'll have my cj parked at our booth. I'll come hunt your jeep down. Maybe I'll try to follow you over the big rocks. Lol

I had the Scrambler there two years ago and was driving Mikes YJ around this year. I LOVE the PAJeeps Jeep Show and plan my summer around it! I have taken a 1985 CJ7, 1952 DJ3a, 1981'ish J10, 1981 CJ8, 1994 YJ and Mikes YJ. I have been to at least the last 12 Jeep shows.

This seems like the most expensive way I could find to plumb the filler neck.

Speedway Cap assemble
Ebay 2" aluminum 45*
Ebay 2" aluminum 90*
2' of rubber filler neck hose
6 clamps
1 3/8 barbed fitting



The 3/8 fitting is for the tank vent for filling the tank. Without this vent it takes for ever to fill the tank, silly pump will keep shutting off because of the pressure build up. The actual tank vent is on the passenger side and is not enough during fill ups.

It looks like you could use a 90 degree barbed fitting or your vent line might collapse? Or might just be an optical illusion...

I was going to let it go... Thanks buddy.

Lame day working on the jeep today. I have a plan on how to mount the Radiator to the grill and trimmed up my mounts a bit. I also mounted the base plates for the C pillar.

I grabbed a can of the 1920830 'Army Green' a while ago and it was WAY too light, even lighter than my old Krylon paint from like 8 years ago. I'm going to try the darker 'deep forest green'.

Radiator mounts are done. I used short pieces of 1" square stock with 7/16 nuts welded inside, then welded the 1" square stock right to the grill.



I have about 3/8" between the fan and the bolts holding the pulley to the water pump.



I lucked out and the stock 1995 S-10 Blazer upper radiator hose fit just fine with a bit of trimming.

yeah, not a ton of extra room in there!

Looking good.

Do you have a shot of your clearance on the engine/firewall clearance?

The distributor cap is close to the cowl. I think I can get the wires on there without having to trim anything.

I lucked out and my spare lower radiator hose for the Scrambler was close enough to make work. It is just a simple "L" shaped lower Radiator hose.

Gates # 20957

I had to trim it down quite a bit. I also reinstalled the stock S10 spring in the hose. Trimmed down of course.

Payday for the wife today meant I got to order some parts.

Power Steering cooler.
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FLX-3812/

I needed a shifter boot but really the only reason I ordered it now is that I can not stand to pay the handling fee on just one part.

Shifter boot I went with.

Short on updates and motivation...

Steering cooler is in and plumbed as is the Trans cooler. Both seem to be holding fluid well. I also have the fuel lines run.

I did find out that a EDE-39106 is a very nice low pressure line (Return line) that bolts to the power steering box.

I did not buy it here. My local Napa'ish parts store had it for under $5.00.

For the fuel filter I went with a Wix 33300. It is a little smaller than the normal filter most people run. Perfect for tight spaces.

How did that lower hose work out? I have the same setup (4.3 cpi, and a Griffin with that goofy angled neck at the bottom). My hose is having to "twist" to hit the radiator, causing it to want to collapse (i have the stock s-10 hose with the spring, and a couple of aftermarket lower hoses too) .

My radiator sits closer to the engine than yours. My grill is not trimmed on the backside (CJ3b).

I'm thinking of cutting the lower neck off and angling it the other way

I got lucky on the lower hose. It is the one I had for a spare for the Scrambler. I trimmed it to fit and cut down the stock s-10 spring and used that to make sure that hose would not collapse.

I am pretty friendly with my local parts store so they tend to be very helpful with finding those hard to find parts. Though it sounds like you may need to cut the neck of and relocate it.

On a side note. It took 3 gallons of antifreeze to fill the little MF up. Seemed like alot to me.

Fuel tank holds 5 gallons at least... Fuel pump works. Tune up parts are on. Most of the under hood wiring is done. I still need to find a good spot to mount the computer. The best place is very close to where the gas pedal (that I don't have) needs to go. I will figure something out...

I'd guess your handy forming work only took a gallon from the capacity, and a stock zuk holds 10 gal. Glad to hear you're still tinkering with it.

Great build, just finished reading it from the start. I really like the floor and tunnel work, attention to detail is awesome. it's great how you have tucked everything in and made it look so clean. I KNOW it's not easy...........starting my second Willys build TODAY! Any words of advice....lol

Have any up dated pics to show of progress???
