So I have this dead 01 4.0 that needs a rebuild. Best kit?
0331 head. Wife overheated it pretty bad trying to get home.
I parked it and bought her a new vehicle.
Weeks later it ran and drove fine when it was -5 degrees and even sounded pretty good. The oil doesn't have water in it but I'm not gonna be that guy and try and use it as is. It never works out for me. I think I will have it rebuilt.
Who's selling the rebuild kits for the best price these days?
Do I have to wait for machining to be done to buy the correct size pistons?
It's been a long time since I had an engine done.
I also need to redo my 246K mile 99 head. Can I just lap the valves and put in new seals or do I need new valves? Can I reuse the rest of the valvetrain or should I go all out and have new studs put in and get new rockers and springs?
