AMC 20 re braked today
rear brake hardlines done
tank and tank skid hung


2.73 gears and LS rear
committed to axles with a RA order just now.


Have a line on a 6.0 so not committed on keeping the 258 yet.

have a few ideas throwing around. 

use 258 and 727? trans as is locate D300 case

use 258 and bolt on 231 (have), swap front axle to YJ  / wheel adapt back to CJ pattern. 

have a line on cheap high miles 6.0- source th400/np whatever for pass drop

Have a fresh T15 something from scrambler, have varous D20 parts- source clutch and flywheel parts

not sure of year on this unit - don't forget track width concerns with YJ front swap plus adaptor width. might need 6" spacers in back.

I know John that has that listed, he has many other combos and is reasonable.  Friends with Will Delphi/brolite/  I bought a 4.0 from him, he bought a 5.3 from me.   very knowledgeable LS guy


we were considering that 5.3 for matts car but too many changes with the gen4 change.

last nights progress:

AMC20 drums installed
3 new ebrake cables and spliter installed
rear hard line along driver chassis rail hung
front D30 torn down to C's, should have ujoints today for assembly with all new brakes next.
ujoints removed from front shafts and driveshafts
engine side motor mounts cleaned, painted, reassembled with new hardware
trans pan pulled and reinstalled with new gasket and filter- looked clean and fresh red. 
new fuel pump hung on block

started to scope out body mounting- looks like the frame is missing two mounts- ill fab and add after the body is hung.

can you take a couple pictures of the ends and length measurements of your ebrake cables? thinking ahead to making the 20 work in Gus and if I can just use factory CJ parts mixed n matched

ends are crimped lugs both sides, backing plate side has a 5" coil spring and typical round cable that snaps into baking plate. 
 
pass side is probably 60", driver side is probably 32" long.   spliter to petal probably 48" long, which has no spring but rather 12" of un sleeved cable and then 4" of threaded adjustment at the spiter end.
