Replace the front trans seal.
Get both EGR gaskets ahead of time.
Do the plenum gasket fix.
Be careful not to bend the CPS bracket when you mate the motor to the trans.
Depending on how many miles on the new motor:
Replace rear main seal, oil pump and pickup. And oil pan gasket of course.
Replace front engine seal (Viton is best) and use the Mopar performance gasket on the timing cover. You will need to buy that gasket separately. If you have ever had to replace a timing cover gasket, you'll understand why to use the best. Low center of page
Check the plugs and do a compression check. If anything is iffy, time to pull the heads. That's easy work with the motor on a stand.
This is the best gasket set I have used
All I can think of now.
Now the wait to get everything, and to get her done. Though I'm not gonna rush this, I think I can get everything needed by the end of the month. Then spend all of September having it sent it for honing, porting and polishing, and whatever other machining it may need. Plus rebuilding it, I should have a pretty damn reliable motor in my 95 by end of September. Still sucks waiting though
Thanks again man.
I'm thinking about maybe selling the 318, or rebuilding it, then building it up mildly. After the 360 is in of course. However we will get to that part later don't the road.
