Sounds like you have a solid plan. Keep us up to date.
The stock fan on the 5.2 is a little messed up, and I've been planning to do an electric fan for awhile. I'm definitely going to look into that F350 Driveshaft
. EDIT: What years should I look for?
For the Starter, I checked the part numbers on Autozone's website and they're the same for a 94 1500 5.2 V8 and a 94 Dakota 3.9 V6.
I am curious on the Fuel Pump, if it is powerful enough to fuel a 5.2, is it the Fuel regulator that needs to be changed?
Exhaust is based on guesstimates because I'm sure I'm going to have to reroute everything, and by I, I mean an exhaust shop.
I appreciate the advice, and keep it coming
The Block is getting completely bored over, and what not. I bought another head after the original cracked, only to find out the new to me head was cracked as well. The crack was in the same place, right between the intake and exhaust valves... Bought another one and hopefully it's sound.
In the mean time, I took the Jeep out wheeling this weekend. I can tell ya though, after the engine, the next upgrade is getting some lockers.
First time I've really flexed the suspension after putting new shocks in... Almost stuffed the front.
Hopefully there will be more updates as the engine comes out of the shop.
