Picking the Engine up tomorrow after work

New OME springs should be here Friday.

I'm happy that I finally start to get working on this again.

Now I'm debating on getting some Boomshackles... hmm?

Nice, I like my boom shackles. Got them from rough country for a decent price.

Looking at some with greaseable shackles for all 4 corners for $82ish shipped. What is the difference in ride and flex if you had to describe it?

Got the Block back all assembled, it was bored .020 for the pistons and .010 over for the bearings. Nice and shiny, don't have to worry about a thick sheen of grease everytime I run my finger across it.



Sorry it's crooked, couldn't find the bar I used to spin the engine stand thing around.



And this is a picture of my room, where I'm accumulating parts. So far there's: Wiring Harness, Computer, Headers, SYE, Bushings for springs, Cylinder Heads (Gotta keep the AZ dust out), Timing Chain, Oil Pump, Gaskets, Lifters, and some box that's important I'm sure.

I'm going to change my springs tomorrow after I get them of course, and then during next week I will reassemble the engine.

Till next time

Looks familiar! I enjoyed the whole engine building process. There's a feeling of accomplishment when you turn the key and it runs!

I've run the booms for so long, I've lost the original baseline to compare to. I 'think' it rides better, but I'm not sure. I know it looks a lot better than the thin stock stamped stuff. I got the shackles and the greaseable bolts separately, don't remember who I got the bolt from... The SOA flexes like crazy, way better than the SUA ever did. Not sure if the shackles have anything to do with that or not.

Now, I've looked at FSM for the 95 GC, 94 Ram, and 94 Dakota, and they all say that 93 was the last year for the Fuel rail with the Fuel Pressure Regulator. While 93-96ish the fuel pressure regulator is in the Fuel pump as an assembly.

This is why I suspected that I needed a new Fuel Pump.

Plus any advice on removing the Fan Assembly from the water pump would be appreciated, because I have no idea how it's supposed to work. According to the FSM, I need to hold the pulley while twisting on the threaded nut that connects to the Water pump hub.

Updates:



Got my 36R OME springs this past Friday, got them installed by myself in 10 hours. Didn't take any pictures really, because doing a lift has been documented numerous times.

Got the Timing Done, Oil pump and pan on, and going to get some oil for the lifters tomorrow. Thursday I will clean the rocker arms and push rods in some gasoline.

A question for those who have the 5.2L/5.9L, what kind of engine oil does it take? 10w30?

Thanks!

Went to the pick-n-pull today, scoping out 3 things: Fuel Rail, Front XJ driveshafts, and electric fans. In one of the XJs that I was looking over, I found this complete Chilton manual, that covers the year for my Engine. Took it up to the front, got it for free

I found with the Ford Taurus's in my PnP is that there are duel fans. Do I only want 1 of these? I believe the ones I looked at were only 3.0L V6s.

Didn't find any 5.2s at the yard, so I'll call around town on Monday asking about Pre-93 fuel rails.

Only update on the progress is I got the engine basically assembled fully. Need to buy some motor mounts, CPS, Flywheel, and a cherrypicker to get this swap under-way. Anybody know of a place that rents Cherry pickers?

Not sure about this. Mine came off a 5.2 ZJ, but I don't remember the year model. Any 5.2/5.9 regulated rail should work.

If you regulate the pressure at the rail then the stock fuel pump will work just fine.

This was a major pain in the ***. I believe it's a left handed thread on the fan, and yes you have to hold the pully still somehow.

Yes, 10w30 is fine, but I did use some heavier weight oil for assembly.

We have a mom-and-pop rental place here that rents them. Not sure about somewhere like autozone or advance.

I was considering a Ford 5.0 swap but this looks far more compatible with less adapter work (like the bellhousing option from a v6). This thread might have just changed my yj's destiny... Interested to see how much you will need to move the motor mounts. Is you motor mount kit weld-in?

Yep. I ordered MM from AA at midnight last night, hoping it would ship fast. Motor Mount placement will depend on multiple factors. I should have alot more flexibility since I'm going with an electric fan. My neighbor works for a company with a welder, so I may go beg for some welding work

Anyways, It's time to bite the bullet this week. Thursday-Saturday, I'm going to try and pull the engine/transmission/Transfercase since I found another source of transportation. I will get the transmission/T-case fitted first, since I already have everything I need for those. Engine placement will depend after that.

Ok, So I've got both Wiring Diagrams here. I looked at the Diagram that MoparFreak69 made, and I can't make heads or tails what I'm looking at. Any help would be appreciated.

Here's the one MF made:

What kind of experience do you have with wiring? He is telling you the circuits that have to be made to make it run. The wiring diagram doesn't give you the pins at the different connectors but he has everything else pretty well labeled.

I have about zilch in experience. Wired my speakers to my radio once.

I can understand the colors, some are different because it's from a 92 Wrangler I believe, but I don't understand the (4x) on the (12v in to Jeep). Also, those little fun square "Fuse" boxes, does that mean I have to run them through a fuse box? ... Oh Boy :

The relays and the fuses need to be run through the PDC. I am not sure what he was getting at with the 4x myself. His drawing is everything under the hood. You will need to make connections through the bulhead connector to wire up a battery feed to the ignition switch and a switched ignition feed coming out to match what he has drawn up. Does the harness you bought have the pdc and the ecu?
