Help. Its smoking

Well today I was putting my new PS tube fenders on and
1980 cj wouldn't start it clicked... So I jumped it
Then it started leaking white smoke out of the back of the motor on the drivers side
I was wondering what those two problems were

I was wondering also if it is a good idea to replace the 4.2 motor with a 4.0 or 5.0 or just rebuild the 4.2 AGAIN

Well, the clicking problem is most likely and bad starter solenoid. It is on the passenger side fender. It will have the positive battery cable going to it. It will look similar to this picture. Need more information on exactly where the smoke is coming from to diagnose your other problem.

Sounds like the starter motor is smoking.

OR ayou lost a ground and it's trying to route all the power for cranking through some dinky little wire.

Dead battery is where I would start.
Get a new starter. You 'smoked' yours with the low D.C voltage.
BTW, attach your battery gnd(-)to one of the starter mounting bolts. Much better hi-amp current flow.
Make DANG SURE, that ALL of your ele. gnds. are tight and CLEAN.

Grounds are the most over looked but important electrical connections
