Don't forget the Feeps and Beeps.
I think your only appropriate option is an 8274.
Why not plug the internal oil galley on the pump and run a filter breather (or sintered brass inlet like duffer's?)
I ask because I have a 12ci with a plugged oil passage waiting for a home on my gmeep
Have a read here and see if you think that mod is worth it. (Page 2 has the results.)
Anyone done the York 210 oil mod......
These were designed to have oil running through them constantly. I’m planning on running a homemade oil/water separator that uses a toilet paper roll on this if I can find a spot for it), so I’m personally not too concerned with what makes it through the output. I’ll just make sure there’s oil in the system and a mist in the intake and call it good.
The hot trick back in the day was to fill the compressor with Slick 50, drain, and repeat a few times, and then run them dry. I ran one on my pickup like that for a few years with no issues, but I always was waiting for the big seizure.
I am NOT
Thank you for the link, i modded my pump "back in the day" 2010 or 2011
Have you considered a labyrinth style filter with a catch can before the tp filter?
I have so many IH parts on mine, I am allowed to go on the Triple Diamond Fourwheelers (IH Club) pine barrens trail rides. (Despite being an IH club, they actually allow everyone, but it was fun to say).
I haven’t considered much of anything yet. I know where I want to be, but I sorta figure out how I’m gonna get there along the way.
This little mount was a pain, but it turned out nice.
I made it so I could mount the ignition control module on the driver’s coil spring bucket, far from any engine heat.
I spent the last two days cleaning up the wiring in the engine bay.
Now the nightmare of under-dash wiring...
More little stuff. I’m trying my hardest to avoid wiring. Every time I look at that pile of spaghetti, I feel sick.
Made a little bracket for a rear-view mirror mount with a gap for the strap <that holds the windshield> to go through. I’ll weld it up the next time I have the cage out.
I also finally got around to welding the stand-offs onto the muffler that hold the brackets for the pass-side parking brake cable. These are oversized so the cable can slide through as it needs to. Overhead-confined-space welding is one of my least favorite things.
Tomasinator stopped by yesterday morning and took a test ride. Maybe we can get him to give an honest review. I’m sure my opinions are biased.
Honestly, when I rode in that 3b, I couldn't have been sitting in a more fun vehicle ever... So, I already have a pretty good idea about how I would enjoy that jeepvo.
I got the chance to ride in the Varg yesterday morning. It was shortly after 7 am, which was barely light out. My wife and I showed up and ITLKSEZ was under the Varg working on something. The first thing he does is remove the headlight buckets which are just sitting there -- he's measuring the clearance behind. The engine compartment is so carefully packed, the cage/suspension brackets had to be fabricated to allow room for the lights to be installed. ITLKSEZ starts the jeep and backs it out of the shop. The first thing I noticed there were no oil stains on the floor, unlike my jeeps. I climb in the passenger's seat. There are multiple wiring bundles on the passenger floor. A transmission cover has yet to be made. ITLKSEZ advises me where to place one foot in the floor and another foot outside the jeep. I climb into a comfortable seat and we buckle up (everything is engineered, even the boxes for the seat belt retractors). We back out and head up the steep driveway and out onto the neighborhood street. We head up a mountain road, breaking the tires' grip in both first and second. We drift around a sharp curve and turn around. ITLSEZ is carefully manipulating the dual shifters of the Dana 300. We plunge over the side of the road down into his steep property. The ride is smooth, quiet and sure-footed.
Video of the ride.

I believe the plan is to eventually remove the tub and paint everything and that makes sense seeing how this is a build for his wife. However, the current patina is wonderful, too. The front bumper is temporary. Eventually there's going to be a tubular bumper (and winch) which will also serve as an air tank.
Doesn't sound like a Jeep or a Volvo...
Doesn't this need a "Toy" or "yota" also in the name too? Those are some mighty nice axles under there!
I'm tickled that it all works so well together!
Just the front. Rear is Isuzu.
Jeep-vo-yota-suzu-dai (seats are Hyundai)
Is the footman loop centered above the front grill original? It looks good there. Did you ever use it for holding the hood shut? Maybe it was used for securing an old-school radiator bag?
It’s for holding the windshield down.
This is a little blip of insignificance in the world of forum updates, but I crossed a major hurdle in this thing today. I managed to completely eliminate the stock fuse panel and thin the wires down to three in-line fuses and one relay. I also figured out a rogue wire that has been bugging me; a wire that drew power from a "spare" fuse was feeding power to the fuel pump relay. I had eliminated it early this morning, thinking it was unnecessary, and I had a no-start panic when I tried it later and had to back-track everything I did.
I also eliminated another mile of do-nothing wires, and I'll be able to eliminate another few (hundred!) feet of length out of the remaining wires when I replace the old 40(+)-pin junction blocks with four new 4-pin units. My plan is to run two of these fuse panels, a small one for "accessory" power, and a bigger one to "run" power.
