Jeep is a 2000, not sure about the harness, Erin pulled the motor, check with him. It is in 1 of 3 places, Kevins, Erins or with the motor at Coreys.

Just a note if you do use the f-body pan, it comes with the flow thru cover, so no oil cooler lines are needed.

Wide open design sells a replacement piece that has a couple fittings in it for easy accumulator or sending unit plumbing. It's about $45 if I remember correctly.

Ever tap a stock one for a gage? That is what I was going to look into doing?

There's two types, one is easy to tap (has a boss on it), the other style doesn't have much there. Depends which you have. I have the one that has a boss on it thats not drilled, so should be able to tap.

I have heard also of removing the old sending unit, which is on the top-back, cutting the top off, and drilling and tapping the base to thread in the new adapter. I might look into that.

Page 35 has a cool adapter that will allow the factory sender and has a 1/8" hole tapped for a secondary pressure switch/gauge. I made my own to accomplish this but the S&P version is cheaper/easier.

Have you decided on your fuel system yet? I crapped out another e2000 pump last week and have been searching for an alternative since. The reason I keep losing pumps is because I was pulling it through the Jeep filter/regulator.

I finally discovered this from Novak. http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/f...uel_module.htm

It allows you to use the Jeep TJ or Cherokee pump/sending unit. The pressure is not an issue, without the Jeep filter/regulator it is capable of the 58 psi easily. My only question is volume. Anybody have any input on a non-regulated Jeep TJ/XJ pump volume? A Walbro 255LPH in-tank could be a solution, but if the Jeep pump is enough, why not use it?

It would be nice and quiet too with the in-tank vs. external pump.

Let me guess...

...you suggested using a 5.3L?
