TR Upgrade

I did it! I just finished installing the upgrade. It went pretty well all in all. I am still working out little details, such as, where to mount the new coil.... I currently have it mounted on my Fender Well Passenger side. It is affixed there temporarily. I have to get some parts, but thought I would check with anyone and see if I could do better then the fender well. I also installed Bilstien Shocks all the way around and replaced the steering stabilizer with a Rancho RS5000. I am not sure, but I think the stabilizer I replaced was the factory one. I have read so much good info on this site, it's just amazing. I plan to replace all my bushings here in the near future also. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make it go easier and any other thoughts on the subject? Talk to you all later.

Re: TR Upgrade

when I did the TR upgrade I mounted the new coil in the old coils location using a piece of angle iron as a bracket. Only took about ten minutes to make the bracket, hardest part was getting the holes in the bracket to line up with the holes in the side of the engine block.

Re: TR Upgrade

I went to the local Home Depot and bought a bracket in the shape of a U with tabs on both ends flaring out. I then mounted the coil inside of the U bracket and mounted the bracket on the inside of my fender wall next to my solonoid. It all worked out rather nicely. I was thinking about putting the bracket in the original spot from where the original coil was removed, but it looks better where I have it. I hope I don't get any problems by putting it there. What do you think?

Re: TR Upgrade

I mounted my coil to thr fender also, I found a bracket off a 89 Ford F150 300 I6,it bolted to the motor. I heated it and put a samll bend in the lower part of the bracket to match the fender, painted it black and bolted it on, look great,like OEM.

My Jeep is a work in progress, Happy Trails
