Fuel Rail for OBDI and OBDII 4.0

My son and I are putting a 4.0 in his CJ. I have some good feedback on the CJ side of the forum, but you guys are the real 4.0 experts! I'm hoping you can answer the following questions.

I bought a '97 XJ Classic for a donor car. The engine is for the CJ. The rest of the car will be parts for another son's XJ build. I read the "Official 4.0 Swap Thread" on the CJ forum. It has helped a lot, but it has created more "opportunities"! We are swapping from OBDII to OBDI, which I am learning about. I pulled a fuel rail from a '92 4.0 at the JY, with the pressure regulator and return line. After getting it home and pulling the injectors and PR, it has big flakes of rust coming out of it. I have to assume there is no way to clean this thing up for use?? Or can it be done?

Out of ignorance, I pulled the fuel rail from a later model XJ (don't know what year)... BEFORE I understood about OBD I and II. This one is clean, but it does not have a fuel return line, as it is OBDII. It appears to have the PR dead in the middle of the rail. Can I use this one??

I have the complete '97 OBDII engine and fuel rail, and I bought the WJ fuel filter/regulator, so I could go with it, but I like the idea of the PR on the rail. Should I buy a new OBDI rail or should I adapt one of the OBDII rails? What would YOU do? TIA

Go Fish! <*////><

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' ... If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!" —Samuel Adams
