Figure 13. A new Summit Racing rear cover. A tool for aligning the front and rear covers with the crankshaft will be purchased later, when needed.

Figure 14. This is one departure from stock, this is the LS6 newer version lifter valley cover, with the pcv orifice instead of a valve. The original cover was shot, and had a hole in it.

This will kill two birds with one stone, it will replace my bad cover and move the ugly pcv valve off the valve cover to where it will not be seen. The block may have to be ground for clearance, but that is a small price to pay, to never have to worry about a bad pcv valve.

Figure 15 and 16. The exhaust manifolds that will be used in the jeep are here. These are brand new C6 Corvette manifolds, found on Ebay. They were chosen because they have an opening in them for the O2 sensors, and they dump close to the center of the block which will help clear things from the jeep. There are several sites about jeep conversions using these successfully. The fact that these are new and unused is a bonus.
