I was planning to use the lokar cable operated shift indicator kit, similar to what is shown . Based on a conversation with the guy at Lokar it will perform both functions and can be remotely mounted to handle the clearance issue.

There's a plug towards the rear of the right hand cylinder head, along the same face that the exhaust manifold bolts to. That's your hole for the sender. I can't remember exactly since the last LS swap I completed pulled engine temp off CAN bus, but I remember having to modify an adapter to fit that sender in the head. Let me dig around and see if I can find record of that process.

The drill bit is for drilling holes for the engine mounts. The bolt holes closest to the steering box are tricky to drill if the box is still in place, so Nick made that little guy as a solution. Just run it off an air ratchet and it should fit just fine.

Maybe I missed it (I have read the entire thread, but it's been a while).

What fuel pump is recommended for the LC9 engine?

Thanks,

Paul.

Thanks for the good info Ash.

I just measured my shaft length from center to center of u-joints-
front 20 3/4, rear 40 1/2 I am hoping they are useable. Can someone verify?

Thanks ^

Another question, Anyone having trouble with the alternator charging?

I've got mine plugged in and hooked up to the PCM, but it doesn't seem to be charging. Just have the 2 wires. Brown to X2-61 and gray to X2-32. (and obviously the big one to the battery)

I did my own wiring, but never came across a wire that seemed to need an input from another source. engine is a 2011 LC9.

Thanks.

Paul since you're running an ROW truck you're going to need a different fuel pump setup; Nick calls out an in-tank pump for the NAS configuration.

Any 255LPH inline pump will work, just stick with a quality brand like Aeromotive, Mallory or Walbro. You'll also want a pre-pump inline filter in the 80-100 micron range (although I've seen some manufacturers call for 40) to keep the pump healthy.

A little piece of advice -- try mounting everything, including the fuel pressure regulator, as close to the tank as possible so that your return line is as short as can be. You'll eat up a lot of fuel hose otherwise and the stuff ain't cheap.

slight update. the gray Field generator wire, is outputting 5volts when motor is running, the brown wire has no voltage when disconnected.

I did disconnect the plug as well, to try and "trick" the alt to going into default mode (13.8v) but no luck. I didn't rev up the motor at all, so not sure if its got a turn on speed.

Engine only had ~20,000 miles on it, so i don't think the alt would be bad. any suggestions?

bring it into a local auto parts store and have them test it.

If you have the stock accessory brackets the larger alternator will hit the hood.

Nicks accessory brackets are cheap and will put the alternator at a safe location.

Just ploughed through 74 pages - is the adapter compatible with the RRC Borg Warner transfer box (I know the front prop length is different from the LT230)?

Yes, the adapter will bolt up to the Classic BW.
No, the chain in that transfer case won't hold up to the HP. Best to just swap that BW out with an LT230.

Thanks Nick - shame as the viscous LSD makes more sense in a road-biased set up.
