258 rebuild

My 90 YJ recently quit running they said it jumped timing. so i was goona see how much a rebuild on the motor would cost assuming I know nothing about motors and am just getting into jeeping. Also if there are any good places to get this done in or around Shelby NC.

If it was running OK before jumping time, just put a new chain and gears on it. These are "non-interference" engines, no damage done by jumping time...............Parts are less than $100.

Who is "They" and are experienced enough to even make a semi accurate statement.
