Spent the morning and mid day cleaning the block, heads, and intake. Then put on two coats of primer.














Tonight planning on ordering AMC Blue Rattle Cans, valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets, timing cover gasket kit, choke stove gasket.

Going to let primer cure for 2 days, spray the intake aluminum wed, then next weekend spray the heads and block AMC blue. Also next weekend planing on cleaning up valve covers, oil pan, timing chain cover and starting to paint them

Hope everyone had a great weekend!! Happy with getting the engine pulled, broke down, cleaned, and primer. Feel like I was productive in the jeep department.

Looking good! Looking forward to the rest. Did you decide about what color to paint the engine bay?

Looks great! I can't believe no one wanted the Wagoneer. If I have the chutzpah and a place to work I'd try to build it. It looks like it has a good steering on it - is it a tilt column? That's worth a few bucks by itself.

What was your specific procedure for cleaning those things? What chemicals and tools did you use?

Yup auto tilt column, probably going to pull it once I unload it off the trailer at the scrap yard. I have to keep the tires and rims to, apparently they dont take the tires. They said after I unload it the will lift it up front end loader and I will have to pull the tires.

The engine only had a very small amount of oil in 2 areas on the intake. I used a wire wheel on my grinder for the large areas, wire wheel on my drill for the small areas, 4 cans of brake cleaner, and some shop towels. In the little nook areas on the intake I sprayed brake cleaner then pushed a shop towel in and used a screw driver to rub the towel around. Used my air compressor several time as I went along to blow the crap off. Sprayed the whole thing down with brake cleaner several times when I was done to help wash the left over crud away. When it was all said and done I then wiped it down with water.


I re torqued the accessible head bolts down and the intake bolts before painting it. I also used a palm sander with 220 grit on all the gasket surfaces (egr, choke stove, carb, etc.) before taping them off.

Still have everything else that attaches to the engine to paint. Going to clean most of it with a 5 gallon bucket with gas and a wire brush.

Are you sure on that $100 per ton? We are paying $200 per net ton ($10 per hundred) for auto bodies in Tyler. Shreveport should be somewhere close to that.

Thats what I was quoted at the first place I called. Guess I need to try a few others or maybe drive to Tyler. Thanks for the heads up.

I guess that Wagoneer's got a TF727, right? Wish it were a TF999. I've been wanting a little auto to put in my CJ5, but the 727 has issues with pan clearance on stock suspension.

Looks great MoC! Love a fresh coat of primer and paint. You might want to call a local transmission shop and see if they want to buy the transmission as a core. Then again, might not be worth the trouble.
