well, did some work and got the head off (alone)... that was a terrible mistake, I don't remember the head being that heavy on the Jeep at the picknpull but I had help and was working out (aint been to the gym in a couple months)... but eff was that thing heavy. I'm about 140lbs and it was all I could do to get it up and over the front of the Jeep (made me hate swapping the lifts)
anyways, I can see anything on the block side, but on the top side under the valve spring perch b/t cylinder 3 and 4 I can see what appears to be a hairline around where it slopes down some.
so, 0331 TUPY will be on order in a few weeks. Plan to go ahead, clean/paint some things, replace all the coolant hoses, new thermostat, give it a good tune up, and some other odds and ends in the meantime and process of putting a new head on it.
bout to start working 72hr weeks next monday until the end of april so chances of getting much work on it will be very slim until then, at least I can get everything ordered with some of the OT money
and have it waiting on me.
-tune up/new hoses, etc
-swap the hitch from the 98 on to the 00
-finish cleaning her up and buff/wax
-hit the beach
