1995 4.0 HO engine rebuild on a budget
OK so its time to go ahead and get this started before my toy ends up down.
Little back story. Engine in it has 298012 on the clock. No knocks and doesn't burn oil but has major crank case pressure causing crazy amount of blow by. Highway speeds 1 full quart every 30-50 miles lol. trail riding not so bad.
I have a donor 93 4.0 jeep that supposed have a good engine in it. The bay caught fire burning all the wires and hoses but wasn't a long fire based on how clean it looks. clock on her is 168k. I'm gonna work on getting it pulled this month and getting it cleaned up and tore down. I know I could just do a swap but I would rather go ahead and do it for piece of mind. I would like to do everything for $700. I will do most of the work my self. Only out source part will be the machining but that could actually be done for free. Uncle owns a shop lucky me. But for the sake of budget consider machinery work at fair price. So with that said what are your suggestions on where I should order the kit from and aside from the kit what else will i need. Not talking about fluids obviously lol. Im not a mechanic but very mechanically inclined. I also have access to a top notch mechanic for help when needed. and access to every tool possible as well.
