rcherb Does anyone know if this oil pan would work as the F Body Pan swap?

More Information for DORMAN 264331

Its a Dorman part, but it has the correct OEM part number 12628771 attached to it.

M390 Anybody have any luck running long tube headers inside CJ frame rails with an LS swap and manual trans..? Running a LR4 4.8 in a 75 CJ 5 and trying to pull all the low end I can out of the small displacement.

My tablet uses a micro usb charger so I would probably make a hidden cigarette plug and always leave the tablet plugged in and permanently mounted. With the blue tooth OBD2 connector I bought it can sometimes take forever to connect, and having to connect it everytime I turn the jeep on and off can get annoying.

If I had the extra cash I would for sure go guages. Since the blue tooth direction is free for me now thats the way im leaning but still undecided.

On my LJ. It had a wire off the brake switch that did exactly what was needed. I just tapped into it.
I'll look for that wire on my TJ. Got my harness rework complete and I'm going to test fire the motor tomorrow.

This. A 5 pin relay will give you a signal, and the opposite of the signal. 87a is 'normally closed' - so when the relay is not energized there's a connection between 30 and 87a.
87 is 'normally open' so when the coil is not energized there is no connection between 30 and 87.
Once the coil is energized the connection between 30 and 87a is dropped, and the connection between 30 and 87 is made.

Anyway, I'm doing wiring now and wanted to ask anyone with a 4L60E with lock up how they wired this brake signal to unlock the converter. I found some info on it, but I'm not 110% on it so far.
I know for my YJ when Speartech did the harness they provided 2 wires that went on either side of the brake switch and outlined it in the instructions. Wiring isn't my biggest strength so I trusted them to do it. The harness fit like a glove and everything worked perfectly. Sorry I can't be much more of a help than that.

So for anyone who did a Emissions Legal swap.

Did you run the two GM factory cats or just one aftermarket?

If it was two, where did you place them?

If it is just one, are both rear O2 sensors just inline after the cat?
In CA, smog ref required me to have the same configuration as the donor vehicle. In my case 03 Tahoe with two cats and 4 O2 sensors. Also, he made me place the cats in the same configuration as the truck which is running them parallel to the tranny.

Just one aftermarket cat with both rear O2 sensors installed inline after the cat.

Many thanks.

In my harnesses, I bring all 8 into a 15A

I would gladly use all new gauges if someone made aftermarket that worked with the Jeep PCM but have yet to come up with anything. Speedhut makes an awesome set of gauges that use the OBDII port but I can't use them because my PCM doesn't support can-bus.

I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that I'll have to run mech gauges for my oil pressure, temp, fuel and volts while running tach and speedo off the PCM...meaning I'll need to run another sensor to the oil cooler block off and use a 3 wire temp sender in the factory location because I'm using the passenger head port for my fan thermostat.
Yea I'm doing all stock dash with a new plastic trim piece to fit around the GM gauge cluster. I'm still in the infancy of my build, just got the lq9 and nv4500 mounted in. Working front suspension now. Picking up DOM tomorrow.
