  1. Thank you! Update: I just replaced the AEM Wideband controller and sensor with a brand matching Haltech Widebrand controller and sensor. Immediately the engine is running great and stock like. However, now the transmission keeps trying to hold third gear.
  2. I wrecked my right arm installing the radiator. I can not pick anything up(pinching motion) without the outer fore muscles hurting. Also, this Novak radiator hoop has some rather annoying design flaws that would have been noticed if the designer of it ever tried to install it at least once. Minor shortening for both hoses. I still need to pick up the fitting for the steam hose. Radiator Hose, Lower - Gates 23037 - 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee/Commander with V8 Radiator Hose, Upper - Gates 22356 - 2000 Chevrolet S10 L4 The stock overflow bottle was reused by: 1.) Unbolting the right side bracket off the 4.0L radiator. 2.) Shortening said bracket to not interfere with the steering shaft. 3.) Bolt it on the left side.(Don't flip it, just move it to the left.) 4.) Aggressively cut the bottle plastic bracket off the fan shroud. 5.) Drill some holes and bolt the plastic bracket to the metal bracket.
  3. Sorry for the last minute notice. The new version of IP.Board, with an important security fix, requires PHP 7.1+ and to get that we have to do an operating system upgrade on the server. The down time should be less than an hour and start after midnight.
  4. I ordered the fuel line parts to feed the engine and that was a pretty simple job to install. Emissions tubing will be done later once I find the Camaro diagram. Since I am running out of room in the stock PDC and I wish to add circuits for other things later I installed this auxilliary PDC that fits nicely above the battery. Five out of six relay triggers are all wired with ignition run/start power from the ASD relay output. The six pin Weatherpack connector also has a wire for ignition start output if I ever need that. The first two relays includes one for a hard mechanical disconnect for radiator fan power and one for the lights on the rear gate. This huge relay is a Dorman 902-310 PWM fan relay used in other Chrysler products. I will be using it with the GM E38 PWM fan control to run the single 25 amp fan. Supposedly this relay is good up to 40 amps, but I can not find a datasheet on it.
  5. Harbor Freight Pittsburgh Pro ratchets are my go to now for quality. They have all the high end features and have yet to let me down. My Craftsman 1/4" and 3/8" ratchets(USA made, replaced with China made) have all broken repeatedly and the replacements have a problem where they reverse direction if the handle is swung too fast. The two 1/2" Craftsman ratchets(USA made) still work fine.
  6. If it fits, it shifts. I got the Savvy transfer case shifter to replace the Advance Adapters shifter I have that really only works with the stock drive train. If the ears on the transfer case bracket were about 95º instead of 90º it would fit easily right out of the box behind a 6L80E. A small sledgehammer fixed that. I used every last thread adjusting the cable towards the front to line up both ends.
  7. Which could be acrylic paint considering how old the vehicle is unless it was painted more recently.
  8. Before going to sanding find out if they are painted with acrylic paint. Let some isopropyl alcohol(rubbing alcohol) sit on the paint. If it starts to look visually cracked or get tacky then it is acrylic paint. Otherwise it is another paint base that will be a bit more difficult to remove with chemicals that won't affect the plastic.
  9. Checked = wired up. Green = Checked with multimeter. My MJ is one of those projects were you try to do your best and go all in with all the extra effort. Then end up making a bunch of mistakes and learn from it. Consequently it is not very reliable to drive up to PA.
  10. This checklist? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WeNrxo_olLp98F6OxWAWf11TVL2zZoyMebU51qa1nOs/edit?usp=sharing I am close.
  11. I have spent so much time on this and keep making dumb mistakes like crimping the wrong gendered terminal on a wire. My brain is mush. Most of the time was trying to figure out where to repurpose fuses and add fuses with the empty slots. The Chevrolet Camaro wiring diagrams dictated that I needed about four additional fuses added. It also had a bunch of dumb stuff like a twenty foot wire run from the trunk to the ECM under the hood with 18AWG from a 20A fuse. I added a bunch of wires and repurposed some. I am really trying to keep this wiring looking stock as much as possible. So I ripped apart the dash body harness to change up wires. Here I added: 2x 20A power leads for the ignition coil/injector banks. 2x Relay controls for the fans. Eventually I remembered that I owned two folding tables that I could use for holding things. Despite being super careful the tabs in the PDC that hold the terminals in place are just too brittle. My LJ's PDC is in great condition compared to the brittle WJ PDC I tore apart, but I still broke a bunch of tabs. High temperature high adhesion hot glue to the rescue. A bit of improvising with spare terminals with crimped leads. I need a 7.5A mini fuse and some various J-Case fuses in sizes I do not have, but otherwise this is the populated PDC. The top empty half ISO relay slot you can see through the holes to inside. However, I did populate the positive side of the trigger with an ignition power source so it is ready to be used for something if I ever need it. The "O2 Rear Heater Relay" in the slot below is removed since it will no longer be powering anything.
  12. I will be there, but with my LJ.
  13. GM has a social media email that can be used to request build sheets. I got one back for the Camaro this drive train came from. What I needed to know was if it had the "BTV" option which means remote engine start. It does and all I need to make it work is the remote keyless entry receiver I previously purchased and the correct remotes. The OEM like remotes from China are only $10 each and do not have any pesky dirty GM logos on them. Thanks! I am guessing I am about 90% on the engine wiring now. I started on the BCM wiring diagram today too.
