    Thanks. And yes some snow is still on the ground. But it got up to about 38 today and sunny so a lot melted off the sidewalks and streets. Tomorrow should be near 50 so it might all be gone by then.

    Took it out looking for places to take photos.

    Not as big of a project today. I took out my old (1996?) suction cup mount phone holder and installed a RAM mount using a screw in ball replacing one of the dash bolts. So far I like it a lot.

    The best is if you are using a captive discharge box. I have not researched much at this point. But they suggest letting it learn without timing for a while before you add the timing control.

    I did not even know it would control my fans. That was a bonus. And at some point after it does its learning, I will tie it into the timing.

    Turns out it was just a matter of adjusting the idle screw on the unit. Doh! I will see how it goes tomorrow on my way to work.

    Sure. I am having an issue where the revs don’t drop to normal after warming up. But it is just one day. I am going to create a data log and see if Holley can help determine the cause.

    Since I have the Offenhauser intake and had a Holley 4bbl carb on it, I went with kit 550-511k made to replace the 4bbl carbs. I looked at the 2bbl one for the CJs but would had to replace the intake. More than I wanted to deal with.

    And cleaned up Put the display on the dash Put the temp control sensor in the heater hose Test drove it today. The system will be “learning” for a bit. But confirmed that the fans kick on at temp. Throttle response is way different that before. I barely have to hit the pedal and it wants to spin the tires leaving from a stop. It will take a bit for me to get used to it.

    Put the EFI u it on and put the relay and fuse along the firewall Installed the fuel pump and pre-filter along the crossbar in front of the tank and ran the wires through the frame Cleaned up a lot of wiring in the engine compartment by getting rid of the electronic fan controller. The Sniper will control the fans now too.

    Added the Holley Sniper EFI this weekend. It was a relatively easy installation. Started with this carb set up Then took the carb off Installed the O2 sensor in the header

    Jeep CJ7 Heater Fan Upgrade

    I did in fact use the blower motor from a 73 Blazer V8 with AC. It was a right fit, but it cleared the battery tray. I was fully prepared to need to cut the hole bigger using a large hole saw and block of wood, but the PO had either already cut it or the glass tub came with a hole large enough. Either way, it was a quick install for me and works great.
