Re: New oiling project........

Here's the pre-oil pump next to the adapter for size. It has 3/8" BPP threads with nipples to 3/8" NPT that will get changed out to AN fittings.

Re: New oiling project........

The pump is done just in time, I will receive my new oil pan tomorrow. I took pics but there is only one(the pick-up tube) that you clearly see anything of what I was doing. Now I have to find a location for the pre-oil pick-up to fit.

Re: Anti-warp jig

It's what I've been up to the last couple days. Tomorrow I will hammer out the pan to alleviate any issues there might have been with the pump clearance and then I will install the oil pump/pick-up(on the jig) for final mock-up. It's all very tight in there but once I get a chance to see it I will figure it out. I think I can guaranty that I can weld on this with-out any warpage. I'm still waiting on a couple of plumbing parts so I wanted to get this done.

Re: New oiling project........

Well I have massaged the pan as far as it will go. Tomorrow I will fit the pump for mock-up of the new pick-up tube. In the mean time I received all my fittings and have several configurations I can go with.

Re: New oiling project........

It's the end of a long day! I finally got to bolt the oil pump(primary) into the pan. Besides the work on the pan, my jig took some work. After that I still had to grind on the pump to get any clearance(I will gain more with the pan gasket). I installed the pick-up tube and got the whole thing put together. I painted the area that I need to enter along with a 4qt line. Tomorrow when the suns up I'll get some pics.

Re: New oiling project........

I wished I had a spare motor to work with, but I have to deal with it the hard way. If you can see in the pics the blue marks represent the main bearing webs. Now all I need to do is crawl under the jeep to see where I can enter the pan(hope within my window).

Re: New oiling project........

I spent today under the Jeep and because of the starter my window got pretty narrow(down to less than 3"). Last night I tried to put a 90* bend in some 3/8"-.050" wall chromoly, I almost got it when it kinked(my bender has a 1" radius). I am looking at coming in with a totally straight piece right now but I can also get the thinner wall tubing to test with.

Re: New oiling project........

Sunday I finally drilled a penetration into the pan(commitment time) and started fitting a pick-up tube. Straight in didn't work, so I tried a kick in it(close but not quite) so I added another kick. I thought that was a go until I bolted the main pump back in, so I added another kick for a total of 3 - 15* bends and it looks like a go. I'll start the welding tomorrow and take some pics.

Re: oil pan's done

Came out pretty good, my penetration is 3" above the oil level and I tried to mimic the factory p/u while still missing it. The straight AN fitting should clear the starter/oil filter but the 45* fitting definitely will. Now all I have to is find time to install it, in the mean time I have to work on the pump bracket and tap the oil system.

Re: New oiling project........

I'll be working on my bracket today, but in the mean time I received my switch and cable for the dash wiring.

Re: New oiling project........

I just finished up the the pump bracket. It mounts to the pass side frame rail motor mount directly below the coolant reservoir on a vertical tab(never knew what that was for). It's a kind of tight fit between the a/c hoses, but it fits!

Re: New oiling project........

Today I received what I hope is the last orders to put this all together. I got my weatherproof plug/connector for the pump, a ATO fuse holder for the harness, and a new Pioneer Multi-media receiver(the old Pioneer is going in the other 2000) since I need to get in the center dash section to install the switch. What's nice is the new receiver is only about half the depth and weight.
