  1. Bought my 89 in Mayish of 90 with 47 miles on it for 7K from Fremont Jeep in CA. Was base with no extras. No rear bumper AM radio. Also no AC.
  2. Some more pics. I'd like to find a better way to do some of this, but as I said this was being done by my son and his friend. So I'm very thankful.
  3. Ok so after some covid delays and a few minor set backs. We have a running engine. And drive train. Just need to clean up some things and fix the headlight where someone ran into it and I'll have a operating truck!!!!! 932858526_20210328_1811552.mp4
  4. BTW I took the tach out and drilled a hole in the casing so that I can adjust it while it's plugged in.
  5. So I've been playing around with a few ideas. Haven't started wiring yet. Bought a newer gauge cluster off of Ebay(91-96). Going to add jeep temp and pressure senders to the block. I've done some various reading and found out the tach is adjustable. Since I spent all that money on a HP Tuner, going to attempt to drive the tach and speedo with the chevy PCM, making whatever adjustments I need in the PCM. Has anybody tried this?
  6. Not much has been done. I managed to delete the VATS out of the PCM last night with little trouble. Water pump is mounted. The alternator is a little high and some hood support trimming might be needed to keep it from rattling. Might have choosen a different relocation set if I had known. But looks good.
  7. Not sure if this helps some of you parts gurus out there. This page is from an original Parts catalog I found a few years back. There is actually a different part number for "dealer" installed air. 5600 2568 w/Factory Installed Air Cond. 8350 4893 w/Dealer Installed American Air Cond. Once I get further into my build I need to pull the dash to repair it anyway, and plan to replace the heater core at that time, and maybe drop in a evaporator if I can find one that fits. Since I'm doing a LS Swap there is going to be a little bit of creative jeep upgr
  8. Some more progress today. My son and his friend are moving right along. Some close up pics. They struggled with the novak transmission mount for the 4l60e a little. Might have to be modified at a later date, but should be good enough until I break it. LOL Also found out the f-body water pump still will need spacers to line up. I'll post links to everything I bought for this build at the end.
  9. Yeah the plan is not to go too crazy with this "rebuild". The list of things that need to be replaced, keeps growing.
  10. Yes, most of the holes are already there. I believe you need to drill two additional holes on both sides. Planning to transplant a 4.8L/4L60E from a 2002 Yukon.
  11. New Novak LS engine mounts almost in a couple more holes to drill. The old 2.5L mounts, no that is not me. :) Old tired four banger getting ready to be pulled. No more sewing machine under the hood, it served me well. Sitting in the driveway after the Axle swap from a Cherokee and Newish wheels. Refreshing the interior a bit. Before the project started: When I bought it 30 year ago, yes I'm the original owner.
  12. This may have been answered already. Please forgive me if it has. I have a very tired 89 comanche. I'm moving from a 2.5L to a 5.3L LS. I can't see paying the 6 Bill's for Novak's radiator solution since the 5.3 will remain mostly stock, and will have twice the HP anyway. However I noticed that even among the "performance" radiators there is a difference in price where the ones for the 90 and older are almost double the 91 and newers. Can anyone tell me the difference? They look almost identical from photos.
