92 YJ 2.5l engine rebuild
Ok heres the back story....2.5l loose oil pressure.Mine was due to warn out cam bearings. I picked up a 2.5l engine from i think a 93 jeep wrangler for $50.00. Engine had locked up on PO so i desided to do a rebuild on it for my Jeep.I had the block bored out 40 over and had the crank turned(just to be safe) I ported and polished the intake and exaust ports. put in and lapped in new exaust valves and intake valves. woke up sunday morning early and started un rapping new rebuild kit and all the parts from the machine shop.Got started on assembly around 11 am.It was a job from hell let me tell you.Getting bare block turned into a short block was easy but then the trouble started, got the lifters in and the head on and a socket desided to jump to its death down into the pushrod holes so i flipped the engine over on the stand so it could fall out and all the lifters fell out so i spent the neft hour geting them back installed. got the tork spects of line and it said 80lbs tork on the oil pan bolts and well thats not right, i broke 2 off in the oil pan so had to drill and easy out the bolts.heres some picks up to that point
