The engine problem is right in front of your eyes....the little scissor jack is missing! Get that replaced and fire it up!

Have you figured out what is coating the side of the fan shroud? If it's fluids from a blown head gasket, I think I'd expect to see it on the top of the shroud too.

FF315, The oil dip stick is missing the top disk that seals it to the tube, from what I can see is's oil thats blown out of the tube. I am about to see what I need to pull the engine and I might get started on that either today or friday, i'm on shift Thursday.
As far as the jack goes, That was the first thing I tried when I got her home, dang thing still didn't crank. Thinking about putting new air in the tires and see if that will work, or a IAFF sticker in the back glass.

Just go ahead and add the sticker, take it with you to work, empty out a bay and have at it. You'll have a Sunday coming up and everyone knows firefighters don't do ANYTHING on Sundays. Plenty of time to work on the Jeep!

Ok folks, I hooked up the fuel line and wanted to see what was up with that.
I primed the line and on the first hit, she fired up!!!!
sounded rough but she still fired up. I let it run for about 45 seconds and shut her down, but she fired on the first hit!!!!!ic kle:

I would seriously think about finding a low miles junkyard engine and do a swap before I thought about rebuilding that one. probably end up cheaper by the time you tear that one down and start finding all the internal problems that need to be fixed. have fun and welcome to the YJ world.

I'm gonna let a buddy check it out and see just whats wrong with it. If we feel that a new engine is needed, then I'll be looking at the local yards to see whats out there. Thanks for the input.

ok guys, the motor is ready to be pulled. I have everything disconnected and tagged. I have a busy day tomorrow, Saturday, so I am planning on pulling it and loading it in the truck to take to my buddies Monday after work and let him see what he can do with it. While the motor is out I'm planning on cleaning the engine compartment up and take a real good look at the underside and get started on the minor body work that I want to take care of. I will be posting pictures of whats going on with the "DD" prodject. If anyone has any tips or pointers, I will be glad to listen.

Dropped the engine off at my buddies shop on monday,he said he should be able to break into within 2 weeks. That gives me time to work on the body and the inside. Planning on taking everything out from the inside and prepping the floor for coating of some kind, keep in mind, this is gonna be a DD not a show type build so the cost of line-x is out of the question but I will spend a little on a good quality, DIY product. Any ideas?

Check out Monstaliner. I have not used it personally but it has great reviews and it costs under $150.
