Yesterday I spent several hours installing a bunch of firewall components. I started by drilling a 2″ hole for the stainless steel heater box. I then positioned it and drilled the two holes for mounting.
A tube will attach to this end and a heat muff surrounding the exhaust on the other.
This is mounted using three bolts from the inside of the firewall. I also installed my vent line ports. These are some fancy aerodynamic covers that I got from JD Air. They require a 5/8th hole and mount from the inside.
Here are the two vents installed.
The hydraulic low pressure line attaches to the inside of this reservoir.
Lastly I installed the master relay and starter relay. This took some work mainly due to the slightly different battery case. I had to drop the pair down a bit lower than the standard installation spot.
Here’s everything installled on the firewall. You can see the relays just below the battery.
Next up, firewalls recess, then the engine mount.
