Swapping a 95 Cherokee 4.0L into a CJ??
OK so I am at work today and my dad waltzs in and says he has crashed his cherokee again
Only third time in the past three years. Except this time it is for good. I went to look at it and it is beyond totaled. But then again I supose that is what happens when you roll it over an embankment. Well thankfully he walked away with only a very minor scratch. But with the total of the cherokee and my dying Chevy 305 I was wonderng how hard it is to swap his inline 6 into the CJ-7 and also is it worth it? I have a T-4 tranny so I know I will need to get a new bellhousing, as well as some new motor mounts. And now I think about it a new high pressure fuel sender.
My 305 is starting to get some blow by and is leaking from a couple gaskets. I also believe it is unbalanced some because it seems to wobble a little when running. I also know I need a new carb. So is it worth it to rebuild and repair the V-8 or swap the the reliable I6. My dad has been in so many accidents the engine was totally replaced 6 months ago so it is basicly brand new.
Sorry about the rambling.
One last question, anyone have any idea what the buy back price owuld be for the cherokee???
