The guy I bought my Jeep from said it had a 1979 engine in it, but If I'm reading the information on that website right, It's saying my engine was built on 04/08/1986 and so it might just be the original engine. Thanks.

6 | 04 | C | 08

6 - 1986 (or 1973. For 1979, however, this character would've had to be a 3)
04 - April
C - 258 2 bbl (4.2L, 76-89)
08 - 8th Day of the month

OEM 2bbl 258 did not start production until 1976 (eliminates 1973)

258 2 bbl (4.2L, 76-89)

85 CJ7 / 258 / T176 / Dana 30/ AMC 20

Thanks for the info. At least I know that I'm not cracking up.
