Leon, did you finish your rebuild, or are you just too busy? I was really interested in seeing the rebuild in stages.

Hi Rdkendrick, I finished the engine rebuild. I am installing the engine back to the jeep. The problem I am facing now is i could not connect the engine block with the transmission. There is a small gap about <1cm in betweem. The reason is only driver side short-stick on the block get into the hole on transmission case, the "starter" side, i could not get it into the hole. I may need to use hydro jack under the engine and transmission to adjust the position a little bit. I was also suggested to turn/push the torque converter back in, coz it may have fallen out a bit...

Any suggestions?Thanks!

On mine I had to support the engine with my hoist and the trans with a jack. Play with the angles (looking under and on top) and twist and push and it'll eventually go in unless you have something blocking it. DO NOT try to bolt it into place.
