What is it you are trying to do ?Install a stroker..
I think hes swapping his motor for a 426 out of an LX.What is it you are trying to do ?Install a stroker..
All the plugs are either 3/8", 1/4", or 1/8" NPTBumping this up, have to convert my shortblock from LX to Jeep setup. Does anyone know the following:
-Part number for the plug in the front of the block, passenger side, near the oil filter/oil pump passages (#2 in pic)
-Part number for the coolant plugs on each side of the block (#8 in pic)
-Can someone snap a pic of the side of the block near the oil filter flange; just above the oil filter flange are two large threaded ports. Pic earlier in this thread from Andy states one is plugged, the other gets a sensor. Anyone know what sensor, and which goes where (top or bottom gets sensor)? And what the part number is the for the plug in this area? (#9 in the pic)
-Can I remove the two main nuts/studs, move the oil pump pickup stud to the 3rd main, and retorque without screwing with the bearing tolerances? What is the torque procedure for the main and side studs?
I believe on the jeep, my oil pressure sensor is in the oil filter 45* bracket, and is 1/8" NPT. I believe I just need to plug both of those ports on the Jeep.All the plugs are either 3/8", 1/4", or 1/8" NPT
Usually the top hole is plugged by the oil filter and the oil pressure sensor goes in the bottom. Really doesn't matter though.
Not much besides making sure you re-torque it properly.Cool thx, any thoughts on moving that main stud?
Just thinking about that, yep, just plug both holes then. The LX's have the sensor in one of those holes.I believe on the jeep, my oil pressure sensor is in the oil filter 45* bracket, and is 1/8" NPT. I believe I just need to plug both of those ports on the Jeep.
Steel is all I've ever used. Most plumbing supply stores should carry them.Does it matter brass or steel for the plugs?
