Well I looked into the Jeep. I found a nos Jeep unit and vapor blasted my pedestal. 

 

I will take it to my machine shop on Tuesday. I will have it matched to the stock spline and I will use the stock shaft bushing.

I see you found the thread . I just cut and notched my shaft carefully with a cut off wheel. Curious what year sensor you bought and what you got for the connector. Believe it or not I never finished what I started . One main reason is I was having difficulty finding the correct wiring harness connector . I ordered one and it wasn’t quite shaped the same way. Got sidetracked and never finished the install. Car ran well with batch fire for now. 

Definitely takes up less room!

Efi Fuel system is in and wired. Happy with how it turned out. ITB here i come. All pushlock. I might switch some of it out to 5/16 from -6 braided. The braided seems a little large and out of place.spacer.pngspacer.png

Duffy, I love these fuel lines, very clean and professional.  Am I right to assume that you are making them up as needed? What kind of tools do you need to make them?

Really enjoying this build, to my eye every modification is spot on.

Thank you! 

 

I bought a push lock fitting tool. Which is all you need. Then fittings from anhosefittings.com

Parts back from zinc and a new water pump. 

 

Also finished the fuel pressure sensor. 

 

Billet P clamps work perfectly with the stock fuel rails. Screws right on

Built a passenger kick plate out of aluminum. I will powder coat it to match my stock one (sort of darker matchbox )This ecu location is about the best location I can find.

Dampener doctors rebuild my stock Dual v crank pulley (keeping AC) . Then this is a 60-2 trigger from Hoke. I had to lathe off the back slightly. The trigger ring was not made for my pulley. Works awesome. It’s a great kit. 
 

I will have it professionally epoxy painted black. They must of rattle canned it.

Well I found a 2nd hole I didn’t know I had. I tested it and I should be able to fit all wiring with zero new holes in the car. So that’s a full efi install with zero holes or Permanent mods! Stoked. 
 

02 sensors go through the shifter hole. 
 

Tps, air temp, coolant temp, home signal and injectors through the choke hole. 
 

R35 coils, crank trigger, oil pressure, fuel pressure, dual positives and ground will go through the hole below the stereo.

I got way further on my ITB install. My kick panel mount worked perfectly and I have about 2 spare inches on the wiring harness. I successfully installed it all with zero cutting of my stock harness and zero new holes which I’m pretty happy with. 

Now the hard part. Making all the shrink wrap and loom look clean.

What kind of shifter boot is this? Mine is still missing and the original one didn't fit the 71C shifter. 

Awesome work!

Stock shifter boot. I used a soldier iron to melt the rubber. It didn’t work very well. Fingers crossed it doesn’t crack.

This is my plan for the injector positive. Basically a Y splice and crimp. The pulley wire isn’t cut. Just the sheath is removed. Then crimped another wire onto it. Then a dab of soldier. Then heat shrink. Should work perfectly. It’s just going to take a long time!
