The fan shroud has been installed.
The originial fan shroud that was sent did not fit and
it was returned. I figured out a way to fix that.
Ordered a new one and a different style was delievered
and fit right out of the box.
This is the return spring for the
originial carb. TYhe weber carb instructions say to use
it for the return spring on this carb. But as you can
see it does not fit. It is one of a growning list of
reasons I will be swapping out the stock intake for a
Clifford and a good old American Holley Carb.
Here is another reason the linkage
supplied with the Weber card. is so stiff the the return
spring needed to return the carb to idle is to large
(requires a great deal of effort to open the trottle and
cruse down the highway
So this is what I did for a return
spring. It works ok but still needs work. It will work
for now until I get the Clifford and Holley.
Also visible it the EGR port on
the intake that needs to be blocked off. I will use the
tape that covered the port during powder coating as a
template for the block off plate
hoses need to get the engine have been addressed. Even
with the diet of hoses and sensors I put this Jeep on
there still are a lot of hoses.
copied an idea I came across on the JeepForum and picked
up some terminals from a junk yard of a mid 90's pickup
truck. I used them for a hard point connection for both
a 12 volt source and ground.
I am still finding splices in the
original wiring harness and repairing them
Added all the needed fluids and
went to crank it over and all I got was a loud click.
The starter that I had taken pains to preserve was no
good and had to be replaced
Replaced the starter with a new
one. and it crank and started right up
