Finely doing some real work towards the swap. Pulled the T Case yesterday.
Point of no return: And have a buyer for the powertrain that lives in Tucson.

Just a look see to see if it's feasible. Will fit with a little trimming? The CAC is from a FreightLiner MT35 with the 4BT.

It's gutted. Now to clean and repair. Theres some rust on the frame that needs some attention and also remove left over wiring that was for the gas motor.

Got the transmission shifter and throttle valve cables connected at the transmission.
The trans shifter cable bracket that B&M supplied with the shifter is sorely lacking so made my own. I switched throttle valve cables from a first gen Dodge (push cable) to a second gen (pull cable).

A change of plans, the MT35 CAC is out, I was not satisfied with the fitment. The new CAC is generic, slightly more surface area and volume than the MT35 CAC. I saw what Z&M Jeeps did and decided not to reinvent the wheel.

The new radiator has arrived. It's for a 1975 Plymouth Duster. Slightly smaller and only 2 row but expect it to keep it cool without any problems. And it matches the Dodge accessories drive I'm using. Radiator outlet on the passenger side at bottom and radiator inlet on the drivers side top and both have the same size hose size. I'm betting that using the Dodge radiator hose with match enough that only minor trimming will be required.

Have you looked at an early Dodge CAC, maybe '94ish? I bought one but haven't played with it yet. Working on the interior first.

I use a first gen Dodge Diesel CAC in my Scout, but with the Scout I had access to the front of the bulkhead with the grill off. Not so with the SJ. And the 94 Dodge CAC is huge, long, wide and thick. It's not an easy fit.
The CXRacing CAC cost just under $200 with shipping.

The hydroboost accumulator was taking up area I need for the throttle, throttle valve and the engine stop. So I rotated it 180

Finely got the engine mount design for the frame worked out, I think. They will be bolt on using the factory mounting locations. The passenger side is relatively easy, only have to relocate the brake line and trim out a path on the fender well for the mount to slide over the frame. I still have all of the bracing to figure out, but that should be relatively easy. The drivers side not so much. 3 brake lines and 2 fuel lines will have to be rerouted. Unless I change the design the steering shaft will have to be remove to install the drivers side mount.

Setup for tac welding:

A small milestone, have the engine resting on the frame











Theres about 1/4"-1/2" clearance between the diff and the oil pan. I think I'll be able to get by with a 2" spring lift for the additional clearance.

The replacement trans dipstick tube. Was able to use a 1/2" EMT tube bender to bend the 3/4" thin wall tubing with out any wrinkles.


From 94 on dodge used a "cylinder" type seal for the dipstick tube, makes it much easier to fabricate the adapter that having to make a "O" ring grove.

I had tried to install the engine and trans together but the engine lift didn't lift high enough and no way to tilt the combo and slide it in.
The radiator support is in the way, if I cut it out I could slide it in.
Done.


A couple of brackets to bolt it back in.

Since I'm working by myself and I've gained 20 years since the last swap putting the engine and trans in together is so much easier. I tilted the engine/trans 25 degrees down, lifted it over the bumper, pushed it back until the trans was touching the fire wall. Lower the combo a little bit. By using hydraulic lifting table under the trans to un-tilt the combo it slides in. Lower, push in, un-tilt, repeat.


The custom trans dipstick clears the firewall

The snowball effect.
On july 11 I ordered a 1 inch body lift kit for the wagoneer. It arrived here today. It's not a mod I take lightly. Can't find any 4x4 shops that carry 3.31 gears for the D44s. If their supplier doesn't have them, your SOL even though they exist. Shops won't put in gears not bought at the shop. So anyway I'm forced to go to 3.54 gears which means a jump in tire size which means at least a 2" spring (maybe a 1" lift?) lift to clear the front tires. And because the 4BT is a little extra heavy I might get 1.5" lift so to be on the safe side I'm adding the body lift. Of course I started taking the bolts on the body mounts, found the first one missing most of the rubber on the bottom mount. Ordered a poly body mount kit. And I found out something interesting about the Grand Wagoneer body mounts. Only the front 2 mounts under the radiator support have nuts you can access. The other 10 are caged, sandwiched in between stiffeners in the body, NO access to the nuts without cutting and welding. Luckily this is a lightly rusted car. Except for the passenger side mount if front of the rear tire. The bolt broke off, half of the of the metal was missing. Sawzall to the rescue.
Then my wife's Jeep Liberty tossed it's serpentine belt, no other damage. She ordered the parts, took a week for the tensioner and the 2 idler pulleys to arrive. Except one of the idler pulley had a notch you could feel turning the pulley. You can feel the "notch" every quarter turn of the pulley. Bad pulley.
And while I was finishing up welding the engine test stand my MillerMatic 210 quit, pushed wire, no spark. No problem pulled out the MM 130 to finish the job. It started welding intermittently. Took both into the Miller shop in Tucson friday Aug 27. Tech said he'd try to look at them before he leaves for Kanas the following monday to install a CNC plasma cutting system. The tech pulled through, picked up the welders the following monday.
And the Monsoon has finely arrived for the first time in many years. We need the rain.
Life is great, I've been taking a break from work.

Back on track. Got the prototype throttle and throttle valve (kick down) linkage hooked up. Since I'm using the factory 94 Dodge throttle valve cable assembly I needed to make the special disk pivot that the cable hooks to. Couldn't find one for sale so made my own.

Start with a 3/8 bolt,


Welded up,
