Re: 4.0 refurb swap.
4wheeler4life and bfeller, thanks for your replies. The reason for the new motor is that the block is broken where the motor mount plate fastens to the block. Each of the 3 threaded recievers on the block are mostly broken out. Can you picture that, or is more description needed?
I was hoping to have it welded, but I was told that the weld would not hold up to off road punishment. I know you haven't seen it, but do you have an opinion?
I would be over my head on an engine rebuild, but look forward with excitement and hesitation on replacing the motor if the current engine can't be repaired.
Bfeller, I will have the radiator checked and boiled during this process. Thanks for the advice.
