At last it runs Great! All it took was a set of new (standard) chrome rings, a set of standard bearings for the crank shaft and rods. A quick pass with a flex hone and a new cylinder head. Click on the photo to run the video

Working on electrical. Got the placement for the relay box and spliced in the wires for the RV plug, the grid heater solenoid and the fuse for the grid heater. Waiting on electrical parts to finish up.

Thanks.
I must say your project is quite a bit more involved than mine. Great work!

Unprogress:


After dinner I was thinking about how far I'd gotten after a full day in and on the SJ doing electrical. That's when I realized I'd I forgotten to heat the heat shrink on the butt connectors for the RV plug. So this morning ripped the tape of the loom and finished the heat shrinking and re-taped.

Insulated the exhaust tunnel. Aluminum reflective heat shield on the engine side and double foil backed jute on the inside.

Working on the exhaust. Waiting on the hangers and more mandrel bends to arrive.

A week and half not much progress to report. Last weekend went to a Army Reunion in Tucson. Meet some old buddies I worked with, had a good time. Came home Sunday 23rd felt fine. Monday woke up to my 3rd case of Covid-19. Since I'm in the the high risk category, started the Dr Z's treatment protocol. Felt good enough by Friday to spend a afternoon in the shop. Today Feeling very good.

Been working on getting the exhaust up over the frame trying to make sure the pipe doesn't hit the body. It's been hit and miss getting the alignment just right. Ended up putting in some alignment pins on the slip joints so the pipes go in the same way every time. Slow progress. Once the pipe is outside of the frame it needs to stay about .5" from the frame so when I put the 31x10.50r15 I have clearance between the tire and exhaust pipe. Probably will do some pipe wrap to control the heat.
The 1" body lift turned out to be mandatory for the exhaust.

The piping between the air box to turbo fits.

The throttle needed some work.
The original throttle cable had a swaged ferrule that slipped into the back of the white plastic piece. The large allen socket head holds the cable, while the button head provides a floor for the cable. Both ends of the screws are polished flat so to not kink the cable.
I'm still thinking about adding another set of screws for a fail safe.

Simplified the design and added the second set of screws for a little more fail safe.

Back on the exhaust. Now I have to figure out how to hang it. Because there's no room on top to "hang" the pipe, it has to be supported from underneath.

The exhaust is pretty much done other than a little paint and some lock nuts.
