When I originally conceived the project I put together a rough outline of what I anticipated were the essential steps, system by system. This was that list

  • Fuel
    • Hose to fuel filter
    • Fuel pump
    • Fuel filter
    • Return line
    • Clean Tank
  • Transmission
    • Driveshaft
    • Cooling lines
    • Kickdown
    • Speedometer
    • Neutral Safety Switch
  • Electrical
  • Starter
  • Glow Plugs
  • Oil pressure gauge
  • Temperature gauge
  • Cooling
    • Radiator hoses
    • Radiator shroud
    • Engine Oil Cooler
    • Fan
  • Exhaust
    • Downtube to existing system
  • A/C
    • Lines and hoses
    • Recharge
  • Vacuum
    • Shutdown
    • Brake booster
    • Turbo
  • Power Steering
    • Hoses

It actually turned out to be pretty accurate. Obviously I missed quite a bit, but it's a pretty good outline nonetheless. 

In this section you will find detail pages covering each aspect of the hook up phase of the project.
