Please help. Newbie here.
Hi guys, I just bought my first 1989 YJ last week. It has the 4.2 inline 6 in it but it is tired and in need of some work. I am getting a lot of blow by in the air breather. I have replaced the pcv valve and the valve cover gasket and still have the same problem. My question is would it be cheaper to have the motor rebuilt or buy a motor from "Collins Brother Jeeps" for $1300.00. I have been looking at the 4.6 liter stroker motors but I just dont have the money right now to do that. Any help would be appreciated.
I bought a new rebuilt one From S&J out of Spokan Wa. for $1300. All parts new Valves Guides,ect. I priced it myself parts & machine lobor and came up with about $800-1100 with no garrentee and I do all the work. I usually do it my self but my Jeep had a lot of other issues to deal with. Good luck
If compression is ok then it could be the valve cover baffles.
