    got the radiator yesterday and hoses, new exhaust down pipe is on order but is two weeks out, once i get that stuff in i believe apart from minor shit (hose clamps, nuts and bolts, etc) the only thing keeping it from running would be my lack of motivation currently due to the rain and cold and not having an inside place to work on it. but hopefully very very soon it'll run. Lucky for me i just started a job at a garage in my area so i'll be able to get it inside over there once i get it kinda running enough to put on a trailer then work out all the kinks and trouble shoot with an actual electrical guy and full shop. so close yet so far still. I was also thinking the other day instead of wiring in the ice box why couldn't i just run a switched ignition wire to the power on the ecu and fuel pump wires to the rear from the ecu? would this work or would i be putting too much power to the ecu and possibly blow it?

    Fuel pump is on and plumbed in. I put the hood back on today and got a new cap/rotor. I need to mess with the wiring for the fuel pump and a little other wiring and lil bitch should be ready to fire. I need to do the vacuum lines also as well as the coolant and belts and shit, also in need of a new alt bracket but will probably just fab something up. Was a good afternoon for sure.

    Fuel pump came in today. I should be able to wire and plumb it in Monday morning. Then cap/rotor and starter bolts and I should be able to hear it fire this week. Last big tuning I need for it is a radiator/hoses and a clutch slave. Bleed the system and it should be running and driving by the end of next month.

    I've got an external fuel pump from a 87 f150 on the way new from the jy. Only $30 too. After someone mentioned they are running it without issue. E2000 is the model pump number that matches the cross reference to the f150. Eventually I might go with a flatbed and fuel cell setup but for now this should work just fine.

    this i know, i was kinda dumb founded when i took the old fuel pump for my old truck a couple years ago.

    set out to wire/plumb the fuel pump today only to find out that the fuel pump i have is so weird and no one carries the right size fuel hose. After about an hour looking at various fuel pumps at oreilly's i finally managed to find the right one and got it ordered new from the junkyard for about a third of what oreilly's was wanting. so new fuel pump e2000 style should be here this weekend and i'll get that in this time next week. i was stumped as to which line was the fuel feed line for the engine then after dropping the tank and looking at diagrams i remembered the P/O had the pump in the engine bay and had run the line directly to the hardline. hopefully this time next week i'll have the right hardware and lines to plumb it and get it at least partly running. I also managed to drain the tank (i thought it'd be super gross and crusty) it looks fine to use for me so instead of needing a fuel cell i'll just run what i have currently and probably keep the shitty bed for awhile.

    Keep track of the vg progress I'm interested in that. Idk if that'll be my next swap or if I'll just get a patty with a vg in it already.

    for sure one wire at a time indeed, still waiting to find out where those other two go then i should be in business, after fuel and cooling and i'm sure other little shit here and there that will pop up. i think i'll need to swap the harness though as there's a few almost broken wires on the injector plugs and it's very crunch all over.

    i'm not trying to delete anything other than egr/emissions because it's not needed where i live and the engine didn't come with it. i've got the bolts for the iacv got it bolted up and wiring started on today.

    do you happen to know the size/thread pitch for the IACV on the 240 intake? i don't have any and it appears to be like a 8mm bolt?

    Lil red/lil b**ch

    i'm going to PS delete so that's one less thing to worry about. i'm hoping I'll be able to hear it run this week sometime around wednesday or so. i've been in talk with a guy who's done the swap before and with the wiring box from icehouse it really isn't too bad for wiring, because i kept the 720 harness for all the normal lights and functions. i may be over simplifying it but it really does seem like that's all, we'll see.

    I'm using a 240 intake so there's plenty of room where as the truck intake i can see being a pita.

    motor and trans went in today, turns out i forgot to check if there was an old pilot bushing and there was one hence the reason i couldn't get the trans with the new bushing in. tomorrow i'll try and start on the wiring before work at 4 hopefully i'll get a good chunk of it done as it's only 6 wires. then after that will be a fuel cell (maybe a keg from my work) ?. next time the truck has to move it'll be under it's own power.

    It is a 5 speed that came out of the truck I did replace the pilot bussing, clutch and flywheel. I'm going to end up pulling the motor and mate them together then stuff the whole thing in.
