Motor Swap continued

Jeep Cherokee Motor Problems

This is the nasty engine that we replaced. No wonder it had problems.

I don't think I have ever seen one so gunked up. The oil could barely drain out of the valve cover. That explains why it would spray oil out the blow-by vent and why the main bearing were shot. I wish I knew what kind of oil they were using so I could avoid it.

We now have the race motor installed in Scott's Wagoneer and he made a 170 mile trip. Running fine so far.
