Well, my junkyard box swap is not going as easily as I had hoped. Found a good box, but I cannot locate the proper pressure hose with the right bends. I assumed the press. hose for a 79 CJ would be the same as an 82 except with flange type fittings vs. the o-ring style. The hose I got is completely different as far as the bends in the line are concerned and it just won't fit. I would like to find out what set-ups everyone else is running as far as the lines and the pump are concerned. Im swapping from an o-ring style box to an older flare fitting type box. The parts stores here are weak....everything needs to be special ordered so I have nothing to look at.

I think my main problem is that nothing is original on the jeep and I keep having to think up creative ways to ask for parts at the store. The hose I asked for was for a 79 CJ w/304. The set-up I'm running is from an 82 w/258 and scrounged brackets to fit on a swapped 304. The only difference I could think of would be the length of the hose, but to my surprise the entire hose was bent differently. One or two re-bends I can handle, but this hose makes me wonder if it isn't a screw up of some kind. At any rate, I think I'll swap the output (thanks high hood) with an older pump and go from there. Once again, thanks for the input.
