Yes, well done!

The copper pipe seems like a great idea to me.

I am new to these forum's, like Bob I have a 58 Jeep pickup with a 226 and T-90 tranny, want to go diesel. VW has no vibration to speak of compared to a 4BT. So far no luck on an adapter for the VW. Would like to keep the T-90 in it's original location if possible. Could you clue me in on your adapter set up and let me know if it's using the T-90.
 
Thanks, D. Hansen

I retained the t90. No one manufactures the adaptors so I had to make my own. Sorry to muddle up the thread but here are some pictures of the one I made.

Thanks for the pics, I notices you starter is on the opposite side, mine is on the left side, has it been flipped upside down as I noticed the clutch arm hole/slot is on the right-----maybe a different bell housing.

Hmm not sure. My starter was on the passenger side on my willys engine too. My clutch linkage is on the drivers side. The bell housing in the picture was just one I used for mock-up. All the Cj2As I have seen have the starters on the passenger side. I’m not sure if the pickups or wagons are different.

I appreciate the your time, will look into bell housing situation, might be different on 226 6 cylinder. Maybe locate a different one, will check around.
 
Thanks again,
