I picked up some parts from the machine shop yesterday, head, headers, intake, and connecting rods. Man I'm impressed with how well these turned out...

Just got done talking to Tony a few days ago and he mentioned doing a Stroker for someone. Then I find this post today, That's awesome he did my engine earlier this year and I just got her back on the road a week or so ago. He does some very good work for sure. Maybe when you get done we can do some wheeling again.

It Wouldn't Be A Project If Everything Worked Right.

Dude Jon, it's been a long time man, you still got that YJ? It's funny cause Tony showed me your build sheet to give me a rough idea of what I'm looking at... Small world, but then again we do live in a small town

Tony is very good at what he does, too funny I will have to tell we know each other next time I'm at the shop. He mentioned that you went full fuel injection conversion, no more troubled carb now. I'll be porting and polishing the cylinder head in the evenings in my garage if you want to swing by, would be great to catch up

I bet it feels great to have that jeep of yours back on the road again

Still got the same old YJ. You'd be hard pressed to recognize it, I'm near the end of a 3 year full resto of it. I'd love to stop by and show off, err chat I mean. Maybe sat? PM me.

Man sounds awesome, mine is always a resto with every damn project I do, mostly battling the rust from our bull**** state dropping hundreds of thousands of pounds of salt on our roads

Anytime you are free to head over feel free bro (same goes for any of my local friends). I will PM you with my number in case you dont have it.

I plan on making big power and torque and will be driving this stroker hard, reliability and longevity.

Tony has an excellent rep and supports quite a few racing teams and has machined a ton of AMC 258s and 242s, so I'm definitely in good hands. The prices are a little bit more than other shops around here but the extra work and effort he puts into everything completely makes up for it.

Build thread for that willys?

Ask and he shall recieve. I'm about to update it tomorrow so stay tuned!

Anyway, looking forward to following this Brad! I'm undecided what I want to do in the motor dept. But a throaty V8 always sounds perty. Would also be interested in seeing some cost break downs if you're willing to share.

How the frame situation? I know that was a major concern last time we were wheeling. Will it handle all that blood thirsty torque?

Lol the nutkick smiley is on our indyorv forum, and used frequently

I can definitely provide a part selection list as well as part numbers and pricing when I have everything else I need (cam, valves, lifters, adjustable pushrods, ect). I can also provide the machine shop costs, which are definitely the more expensive part of the build, but they can vary greatly depending on your needs (and wants). I want this stroker to handle some serious abuse and have it be the last time I rebuild it, so everything must be within spec and have tight tolerances.

As for the frame, there's some problematic areas that piss me off every time I look at them, but I've done a compete resto on the frame and I will be going over it all again with some eastwood chassis paint with hardener to preserve what I can and I will be happy if I can get two more years out of it before I either frame swap, build a custom chassis, or patch and repair this frame for good. Either way it should hold up just fine, the cross member for the double tri 4-link adds a lot if extra reinforcement to the areas that need it and the front half of the frame is in prefect condition.

Ps, I hate that you moved, just letting you know.

Thinking ahead, I might shoot semi-gloss high heat ceramic clear coat on the headers, intake, block, and head. Leave everything natural colored and "unpainted". I think the cast iron looks awesome once it's blasted and all clean. Either that or...

Gunmetal grey metalic block, satin black valve cover, bright silver metalic cyclinder head, semi-gloss clear coat headers and intake.

That intake looks awesome all cleaned up! I say just clearcoat it.

I agree, the intake will look even better with a high temp clear coat and will preserve that awesome finish. Also should keep the intake temps down with the ceramic mixture.

I may just hit everything with the ceramic clear coat, especially since tony's blaster leaves such an amazing 'like new' finish. A natural cast iron finish would be unique and close to a gunmetal color anyway. I still have some time to decide.
