Blew a head
Thats were it started, im encountering a 9v batt gauge, after having replaced the head, and gasket and such. New belt is squealing loud. voltage wasnt dropping before the rebuild, so it dies after running for a bit. new plugs installed and got its timing in place via bringing cylinder one tdc, and aligning the roller cap. unsure about the belt being the culprit as i have it rather tight, just needing guidance as i bought this off of a friend knowing i could fix. its been a roller coaster. hoping i just need to tighten the tensioner more, but its holding a charge problem is weird... 99 xj.
