Re: What are the pitfalls of the 258 motor (newbie ?)
4.2, a great engine. Downfalls are the carburetor. Contrary to what is being said on here, I dont like the aluminum valve covers as they tend to warp more from my own personal expierience. Aslo, on the YJ they require drilling and tapping holes in the engine, which doesnt work for me.
True, these 4.2's dont like high revs, but who needs to go faster then 45? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
