Well some parts are not gonna make it back onto the car. The wire harness that hooks up all the sensors was covered in oil and extremely bridal, heading back to the back to the JK.
I got a lot degreasing to do from the entire engine, tranny is the worst. Keep you posted.

Don't everyone get back at me at once! Anyways that harness is got to be swap out, does it have to be the same year and engine?
Also, A/C tubing that goes towards the firewall, can I coated that with something to have my entire piping insulated. It appears it was coated with some black primer, but hardly none is visible. What options do I have to insulate the remainder A/C piping? Thanks

Depends on what side you're trying to insulate. If you're talking about the low pressure side then just use some radiant barrier from Home Depot. Don't insulate the high side as it will make it less efficient. The high side is supposed to dissipate heat, not hold it in.

Sorry I don't have a CB to go and look at the lines on so I don't know what side you're talking about.

I would get the same year/engine harness to make it easier on yourself.

I was talking about the A/C lines on the passenger side along with the heater core hoses. Gonna go check the product at Home Depo.
Got the harness yesterday from a 92 sedan lx, I have a coupe. Paid $30 bones out the da door.

Rockauto is most likely your best bet.

I'm dealing with seals. Got to go out and get rear main seal and that round seal in the tranny housing. Any other seals I need to replace, before I put this thing back together? Thanks!

Good job man. Must feel good to get this project done. I did a 91 Coupe flip (made $1500 profit) and it took me about 4 months from start to finish to fix the car since the engine was so corroded to hell.

Luckily I found a F22 short block in great shape from a guy on Craigslist for 50 bucks so no JY tedious work to remove the engine was necessary. I also had AlmostJDM come and help me out during his holiday vacation otherwise it probably would've taken a year like yours did. Its amazing how motivated you get when you have someone working with you on the project.

$50 bones for a short block, that's a sweet deal.
I was able to just slide my a/c pipes very carefully and unbolt the 4 bolts. I recharged my a/c system just in time. Temp is here in NorCal is getting hot.
