232 vs 258 Mods and Identification
Asked this ? in the CJ forum a few days ago, but nobody answered. Maybe this would be a better place for it.
Recently bought 74 CJ5 and was told it has a 232. Considering the age of it, I don't know if the engine is the original or not so looking at the VIN probably wouldn't matter. Is there an easy way of telling the difference between the 232 and 258?
As far as performance mods, from what I understand, the only difference in 232 and 258 is that the 258 has a longer stroke. I would assume the same parts work on each engine, but will the same mods work? I want to upgrade carb/intake, but also started reading about the 4.0 head conversion and am also considering that too.
I have been reading thru the many posts here, but haven't seen anything posted about which mods will/will not work on both engines. Thanks
