Here is what this is going in



some light body work


where my air intake will be going


organized confusion and hydroboost


Also bought the hydraulic clutch master and slave cyl. Picked them up both from AZ for a song. Why? because I got tired of tinkering with the stuff. Last "upgrade" I put bearings at all the piviot points in the Jeep. Just a hint, it would be real hard to do this with the big vacume booster in, well, can't really put the 4.0 intake in without the hydroboost.

where I will be mounting the master cylinder (small dot just in the shadow)


Here is it almost hung. Found that blocked opening (see pic above) from inside, measured / eye balled where the shaft will be going, its just a little foward of where the mech shaft is now. Ended up being about 3" below that blocked opening. Came around outside and started drilling / cutting / grinding.

about where its going. Just need to drill the mounting holes and seal her.

Where the shaft will be mounted, just a little fwd of the mech shaft.

Ok, so I guess now the question is, how do I get the clutch peddle off?

if anyone is still following this thread, sorry for the long pause. Started to clean up the engine bay, then son's picked up some projects, Nissan 240sx and a Datsun Fairlady 280z from japan, right hand drive. Well, the 240 projects were a bust, bought, sold and lost money. The 280z is getting an engine upgrade and I was finally able to get the jeep back in the work area. Did get my fuel pressure regulator with bypass from Jeggs. Need to finish up on the engine bay painting, with warmer weather. But in the mean time, I am thinking about rebuilding the T176 tranny and NP208 xfr case. Also finish up on the wiring.

Don't worry, I know all about project delays! A few trips to NC to work on my father's '59 Impala, some cold weather, a few household repairs...

Working on my buddy's 4.0L swap in the '82 Wag today. Conversion from V8 is some fun!

After 3 years, the old cherokee has an engine. Its in, just not running. I had to flip the hrydroboost over to make her fit, did not really want to do that, heard its a pain to bleed that way.

It's pressurized and not that hard to bleed as long as the master is right side up!

It is a bit of a pain to bleed it upside down. My '89 was like that. I basically bled it as best as I could and let it do the rest while I drove it. Probably a hundred miles or so before it was near 100%. The more turning and braking you do with it, the faster it goes.

here are some pics from Saturday, now that I got the pic thing down.

Getting it lined up. Using a old rolling metal I beam "A" frame, this thing is great!


CPS on modified T176 bell clearance, will be a little more since the front of the tranny will get lower with the engine mated to it.


My fuel pump and the two filters. I have it mounted in the engine bay on the passengers side and rubber mount isolated from the frame and body, should be nice and quiet.


Where I tried to modify the intake so I did not have to turn the hydroboost over, ended up doing that any way. You can see on the intake where the hodroboost was rubbing.


Had to flip the hydroboost


This is the modified Ford 5.0 throttle body. You can also see in the background the two rubber hoses, those are the axle vent lines.


This shows the clearance between the fuel pump, filter, and alt.


Here is the heart installed. Went in way to easy, I think it was the use of the "A" frame. Now to figure out the wiring.


Speeking of wiring, if I am tossing the old starter sol and ignition, do I need this resistor wire anymore? If not I'll remove and keep it just in case.
