I did that at first but I developed an intake leak. The flanges on my intake and exhaust are different thicknesses. The single gasket couldn't seal them both.

Edit: is it just me or did this thread get inverted somehow? This should have been post #8.

4.0L swap

4.0L swap
I just did a 4.0l swap in my wifes 1982 CJ7. I started at about 9am saturday morning had it running at 7pm that night. Hooked up the exhaust and timed it this morning. This runs so much better then the 251k 4.2L that was in there. Here are some pics.

That's an interesting way to do the power steering pump bracket...

Did you use both the intake and exhaust gaskets when you mounted the manifolds?

Which Weber are you running?

I know the fuel injection would have been better, but my budget and time restraints meant keeping the weber carb. this is my wife DD and so I only had the weekend to do it. I have the FI intake and brackets so we will do a FI swap when time and money allows.

Well, here's one of the threads that got mangled and thrown back in time.
