Quote from: SixGun on January 13, 2013, 11:30:47 amOh yeah, that was the easy side. I did the other side after I posted and I had to use a concrete nail and BFH to get it out. If I had known, I could have left this ready made plug. All holes are tapped and plugged, new gaskets purchased for exhaust manifolds, moved the studs from outer to inner ports and longer bolts bought for the 93 Magnum manifolds. I need to check out Pic-n-Pull for a Y pipe and kickdown linkage. The forums mention a possible fitment problem on older trucks with the firewall, tranny dipstick and kickdown linkage. Hopefully with the years being so close that the firewall won't be a problem. I can always unbolt the dipstick and swing it away. These manifolds look so much cleaner without the heat riser mess.

Quote from: SixGun on January 15, 2013, 02:59:09 amI was talking about the manifold to head gaskets. I was gonna go to JY on Monday morning to look for a Y pipe but it was too cold. I really wanted to get the swap done this week since I'm on a mini vacation but it's gonna be cold all week - in fact freezing with a chance of sleet/snow on Wed.So I ended up putting my gauges back in and fixing a few things. The heater blower switch was not working. After tracing wires and tearing apart the switch, I discovered that a 3 prong plug came undone when I put in the stereo last spring. Without AC, I haven't noticed it till it got cold here. On the gauges, I pulled the PRND21 indicator off your set and the gas gauge and put them on my set. I also pulled out the little blue caps off the lights. Looks so much better and brighter. The gas gauge still didn't work. Was it working when you had it on yours? Maybe it's the wiring.
Quote from: SixGun on January 15, 2013, 08:12:23 pmMy 1.5 car garage is FULL. Outside all the way. My driveway has a pretty good slant to it so I was planning on making the swap at the inlaws. Flat and lots of room but it's outside as well. A week ago it was sunny and 70*. What happened?? I was able to do some other stuff so not a biggie. Still lots of time before RJ 2013. My in tank fuel pump is a new Carter so the sending unit should be good. Before and after the fuel pump install, the fuel gauge would only read up to 1/2 tank. Suddenly it went to empty and that's all it shows now. The plastic on these gauge housings is so fragile that it's ridiculous. Really struggled to piece a mostly good one together. LOL
