whats order putting motor back together

So if i can pick a few brains id be thankful. Right now tranny- block-head-valve cover-water pump-termo housing is where im sitting right now so im trying to stay on track without having to back track with removing items. Im thinking exhaust manifold and intake should be next in line. Am i correct. Thanks

If this engine is already on it's mounts, I'd say yes hook them up again. If the starter is attached then it is time for some wiring once you have any linkage re-connected at the carb or throttle body. Then hoses/fuel lines.
This order is dependent on how they are all layered.

You should be able to install the intake/exhaust manifold before dropping the whole chunk in, but with the driver's side clearance does get a bit thin.
Maybe you'll need to remove the lower steering shaft for extra clearance. No sense to breaking anything unnecessarily.

All this depends on what you have the engine 'hanging' off of and what else is not on the YJ. If the grill or radiator is not on the YJ clearance is no problem.

If you have a great engine hoist system that gives you easy control over the whole chunk that is most of the battle.

Then your build is a no brainer. Complete it then install it. Nothing is in the way...
