If you are doing the auto then the slave doesn't matter. Look up the tj axle swap or cad.

Totally agree with this statement.

If it fails compression pull of the head, check for scoring or bad valves and then buy parts if the motor is salvageable.

You can rent it by putting down a fully refundable deposit from any of the big parts store.

It would be killing me to have an engine on a stand in my shop and all of those new parts just sitting there waiting to be installed...she would have been completely torn down and rebuilt. Que is right on the money as far as necessity goes but you are soooo close to a complete build it would be hard for me to resist.
