I got the fuel pump wiring "re-engineered" till I can find a new connector and the engine runs great. Transmission shifts great. Transfer case and axles work as needed, the sun was shining and no wind.

An all around good day on this project

The plan for tomorrow is to remove the 3" suspension lift.
Then remove the cab.

This thing has a 2'' body lift on it also. I don't know what I will end up with till I set the Willys cab and bed on the frame and have a look see. I do know it won't be lifted 5''.

Great donor. I'd nix the lift kit too. I'm getting too worn out to climb up and too fragile to fall down.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Off to the races!

Sell the lift kit(s) and the rear bumper and get half your investment back. Well, some of it anyway.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Default Help a brother out.....

After getting the connector for the fuel pump wired up I started to remove the cab from the donor pickup.

What a mess of wiring, engine control module, Abs control crap, throttle position sensor, crankshaft position sensor and on and on!!!

I had it in mind to keep the fuel injection system but I'm wondering if it's worth it.

What do I need to do to keep the computerized system?

I hate to give up on something like this but is it worth all this brain strain when I can go Carburetor, manifold and ignition system and be done with it?

I've never done it but I think I read some where that you take the covering off the harnesses and keep everything between the engine and the ecm and everything going to the fuel tank. Also the O2 sensors and the fuse box. Then eliminate what you don't want. If you are using the original light switches, wipers.etc. they should be sub harnesses from the fuse box. Ive thought about it but chickened out.
