Re: TBI 4.3, 700r4 and s10 231 into a yj?
Dude, no offense, but why do you always do things the hard way? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
OK, sorry, first to help answer your questions:
For the TBI 4.3 install you could research by checking out the people who put the 4.3 TBI on the 258 - you'd be doing the same thing, just also putting the whole motor in. Harness, knock sensor, fuel pump relay, MAP sensor, frame-mounted external fuel pump, ECU, the whole deal. Don't know what you mean by "going push button", I'm guessing starter switch, but it can't be that hard to connect it to the exising starter wiring.
Fuel pump - Ford application, Master E3000, if I recall correctly. Fuel filter would be any inline filter for FI, probably same application. ?? 86 F150 6-cyl. rings a bell.
Now, more questions for you:
Why do you want to install the 4.3 motor? I've seen it done, and if it's for pushing the motor forward and gaining rear driveshaft length, then that's good.
If that's not the reason (which is the only good reason I could think of), why not go 4.0? If you want an auto tranny why not go 999? a 4.0/999/231 would mount right in your YJ, with all factory parts, and you wouldn't be reinventing the wheel as much.
I saw a 92 cherokee in the want-ad this week - $650/bo, no title, runs good.
It seems you're getting your parts pretty cheap, maybe you could sell those for a profit and pick up an old cherokee with a 4.0 and take the whole 4.0/999/231.
If you're buying new radiator and other misc parts for the custom 4.3 swap, it may not be as cheap as you think it will be either.
Anyway, not meaning to bust on you dude, no offense intended. Just my $0.02. Hope it works out for you.
