Had pull a piece off another harness he had laying around, mine was missing the wire for the starter. Not quite sure what happened or why there, but all fixed now anyway.

Shifter should be arriving today.

Air mass sensor showing up this weekend, thanks Greg!

Got a list together of fittings for the fuel pump.

Now if we could just teach Kevin to not give his phone a bath so I don't go thru update withdrawls again...........all will be well!

Ordered MAS connector, Throttle position sensor and connector, Idle air control motor and connector, and oil dipstick tube today. Parts list is gettin smaller!

Big Thanks Bill!!!! (bleay)

Whoo doggie, those little parts sure do add up fast!

Had to reorder the oil dipstick tube thru him, Betten Chevrolet has a less then satisfactory parts department to say the least.

What are you doing for transmission lines? I am tired of my seeping/dripping lines and I am curious what you are doing and what others have done.

Have a question for you guys.......

How is everyone running the return fuel lines when using a stock TJ gastank? The tank has no spot for a return line.

Do we just get a fitting and drill a hole in top of the tank?

I have flared fittings at the trans and hose barbs at the trans cooler. Yeah, you need to tighten them time to time.

Sort of. you need to pull the plate that holds the pump and pickup. Drill a hole through it with bulkhead fittings, then put a tube almost to the bottom. This way the returning fuel doesn't splatter around and make noise/turbulance. Under the plate but at the top of the tube you drill a small (small as possible) hole for anti siphon.

What are the flared fittings? Where do you get them?

X2 on the fuel return location, but I let mine splash around; so far so good.
