I really love this thread. I wish I was this thorough with my own projects.

I want to send out a huge thanks to all my buds that have helped me with advice on the engine swap. Truly could not have done it without you. Through the ups and downs, I've learned a ton and strengthened friendships. What a great hobby. Hope it starts...

Put it all together and didn't turn the key? What's left to do? So much anticipation.

Getting close. Alternator in this morning. And now we understand why remote oil filters are so popular. Gauges hooked up last night (except wide band that needs a bung). Hope to pre-lube today and check for leaks. One more care package from DO88 due tomorrow. Then splice MAF harness.

Does anybody know where to plug the coil into the ecu so it gets an RPM signal and runs the fuel pumps?

Thx.

Did you replace and rewire the K-Jet fuel pump relay with a LH2.2 setup? If not, the red/white tach wire from the coil goes to the K-Jet fuel pump relay and turns on the pump when it sees cranking.

The car is all LH2.2/Mopar. He's having trouble figuring out the RPM signal. On the phone now.

Injector rail off. Tried jumping from negative coil to a variety of connections. No gas. Pumps work properly if jumped at the fuse box.

Hooked up the old Mopar wire harness. More or less. Swapped 240 / 740 ecu Ďs. Had intermittent fuel spray. It sort of tried to start. No spray right now. Iím lost.

Beginning to think that EZK might be a better option than Breakerless. Especially since the car was originally an LH 2.2/Chrysler car to begin with. I had enough issues trying to get a B23F swapped '85 245DL running, and I only went from LH 2.2/Chrysler to LH 2.0/Chrysler. Would try to run once in a blue moon while cranking it over. Harness on the B23F was in better shape than the harness from the B230F, otherwise, I would've stuck with 2.2 and had a running car with oil pressure.

I also would not plan on driving the car to Tacoma on Saturday. Better to catch a ride with one of the other guys or to bring the BMiniW instead and just park in the normal customer parking lot area. There's a reason why I didn't bring the 245 down to iPd. Knew that something might happen on the trip down or back and didn't want to chance it. So, I took the Exploder.

Yeah it's coil negative into the grey wire that sits underneath the intake. It's a double plastic spade. one side is the orange wire that comes from the TPS #2 and runs to the ecu, and the other side is a grey wire. The grey one is the one you want.

I feel like I basically did the same swap you did, except I had a 2.0 car, that I converted to 2.2 with a 2.2 harness. Then did a +t with breakerless ignition, until I went EZK.
