Next was back to the case to install the front and rear shafts along with the chain. (Side note, when we first installed it in the case the chain was slightly binding, this is normal, after you install the yoke is pulls everything into proper position.
Notice the cleaned edges of the mating surface of the case. Next came The Right Stuff for making the gasket and sealing the cover back on to the housing along with the installation of the oil pump. A lower retaining ring was placed on then the speed-o-drive gear and another retaining ring to top it all off.
On occasion the shift rail needs to be shortened to clear the new cover, I lucked out and didn't have to touch mine, it fit perfectly.
I place another proper coating of The Right Stuff on the rear housing and bolted it in place.
Re-installed the speedo gear
And last but not least we installed the new seal washers both front and rear along with both the yokes.

That's the short and dirty version of installing an SYE on an NP231

I had some extra time so I bolted up my Rokmen transmission skid and fitted the JKS rear track bar as well.

Larry's in Danielson is another shop around, he builds alot of the motors for the cars up at thompson speedway. I've had some good and bad experiences with both J&R and Larrys so I figured I'd ask to see if there were others around that I didn't know about. Regardless, I'd only be having them clean, magnaflux and bore my block (whenever I get my hands on one for cheap enough) and a valve job. I'd be porting and polishing the head myself and building the rest of the motor myself.

Can't wait to see this thing when it's done.

Kinda funny because that is exactly what I am doing. Having him do most of the machine work (clean, magnaflux and bore) and then do the build and P&P myself. I'm thinking I'm going to do a write up of that also...that is going to be a lot of pictures.

And I cant wait to see it all finished up as well.

Great build. Jealous that you've got a garage to strip it down and rebuild in.

I do have one question/thought/concern - you posted recently the photos of installing the JKS rear track bar, it caught my eye that you installed it the way you did. I recently installed the identical bar in my TJ to replace the POS Rough Country that I had finagled a year and a half's use out of. When I installed the JKS, I put the rubber bushing on the frame side and the Johnny Joint on the axle side. Their website features a photo of the identical configuration:




Just wondering why you did it the way you did, and if there's anything you might know that I don't!

Kinda funny that you mention that, my friend found it in my pile of parts, grabbed it and put it in the other day. Although now that i'm looking at it your right...plus the bar has poly bushings on both ends...the only JKS bar that has ploy bushing on both ends is for the ZJ. Now I'm wondering if I was sent the wrong bar from the company I purchased it from. Ill have to call JKS tomorrow. Thanks for drawing my attention to this.

Finally dropped my completely stripped down block and head today at the machine shop.

What I am planning on for my motor is the following build specs.

4.6L Daily Driver
Jeep 4.2L 3.895 stroke crank out of an '87 or 88. Got the motor for free
Jeep 4.0L 6.125 rods from my motor
Just ordered KB IC944-030 pistons with Hastings rings
CompCam 252H Grind 68-200-4
Mopar Head Gasket 0.043
And have the block decked .020
Ford 24lb injectors
I am going to be doing a port and polish job on the head myself

I'm planning on using my over bored throttle body and a matched bore intake manifold along with my high flow exhaust. I'm still not sure what I am going to use for an intake. I wanted to use a Banks set up but not 100% sure what is going to fit with the Rokmen High Fenders, anyone with any ideas.

I am going to be, and others, driving this a lot on the road and want it to run a smooth as possible with as few issues as possible. Would love to get a little crazy, but having something that performs regularly and with out problems is more important to me.
