So I have the Dowels installed and the cylinder head is ready to be installed. I wanted to install the new oil pump and rear main seal before beginning reassembly on the top.

I am having difficulty removing the oil pan. It is getting caught by the transmission by something inside the pan. Any suggestions on how to remedy this.

Thanks,

11/16 open wrench and a hammer. I like to use a little lock-tite on tube before I press it in,but get it positioned fast.

So I have the engine put back together, I just installed the new Rear main seal. I was planning on priming the oil pump prior to installing it in the engine, but it does not seem to be holding pressure. I have the oil pick-up in a a quart oil can on its side submerged and a cordless drill with a flat head bit trying to prime the pump and I can't see anything happening. Is my pump defective, or am I doing something wrong?

I think I can also prime it by installing it in the engine disconnecting the spark plug coils and turning the engine over. I also think I can check for prime by not having the oil filter installed. Is this correct?

I may be completely lost so any direction is appreciated.

Thanks

Just install the pump/pickup and the oil pan and start it up and let it idle until you see pressure. Shouldn't take long, less than 30 seconds. Since you did not rebuild the engine all the journals are still coated with residual oil. The oil that is trapped in the crank will get to the bearings. No different than when you change your oil & filter.

Thanks for all the info jeep is up and running, no leaks so far, and great oil pressure. There is a little tick that concerns me. It seems to go away when the engine gets warm. Concerned that some dislodged carbon deposit may have got caught somewhere. No cylinder misfires or other check lights.

Is your exhaust header cracked? They are infamous for a ticking sound caused by an exhaust leak that goes away from a cracked header as it heats up.

It wasn't when taken apart but could've potentially cracked it during the reinstall. IMHO removing the exhaust an reinstalling it was the most difficult part. Any ways to check with it put back together?

Stethascope and move it around to pin point it. I installed a OEM header and with in 5,000 miles it had already cracked.
