Nic Rig

Nice rig kid. I just took a peek at your web page and I like your CJ. Keep coming back to the Forum to get advise. Avoid some of the flaming by just conforming to the lingo used here - that's what I did. Even after hundreds of posts I still get flamed once in a while. Usually that happens when I give my advise about something and someone disagrees.

Have fun and take car of that Jeep.

(Notice that I didn't call it a car even once)

Sorry for the vicious flaming,, just one of my pet peves. anyway,, what i would do in your situation is #1 take it to a second mechanic to get a second opinion and mabey even a third mechanic. more that likley you can just slap a new high performance cam and lifter set, a new oil pump, and some synthetic oil in it and it should be off and running. you would be suprised at what kind of abuse those motors can handle. it would have you a lot of money and hassel. just my thoughts. let us know what you end up doing. but i would deffinatly get 1 or two more opinions about your JEEP heheheh

If its broke I can fix it. if it isnt broke give me a minute!!!

Well, if this forum didnt get too far off subject, I am going down to a Jeep graveyard this weekend to get a new engine for my Jeep. the engine is in good shape, it only needs a new water pump. hopefully it wont go bad once i put it in my Jeep, but im sure i will keep you posted on how it goes once i put it in.

Good experience for you. Tag all the wires so you know how they go back. Tag some of the vacuum lines too. The rest is pretty simple - just go for it.

Keep as many of the external components off your engine that you
can ..Alt carb. and whatever else. You will need them eventuall..
And good luck with the new motor...

Just my advice...
If you have access to 2 Jeeps, I would combine the best parts of both into 1 good Jeep. Then part out the other one to members of this forum. Generally, people need parts for vehicles that approach 20+ years...

that is true, once i replace the engine i will post all the parts left over on my website and i could either sell or give those parts away to those in need. i will post once i put all those parts up on my website.
