Re: Blown piston- can it be changed from below?
My oil pressure guage reads where 120 would be if the guage didn't stop at 80. I dunno, it could be a busted guage too, at the same time as all this. I do remember touching the oil-pressure sending unit, I think I just brushed it with my hand. With me, that could be enough for it to implode I suppose [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
I found a '98 4.0 with all the wiring but the computer, and only 29k mile on it, for $450. It's semi-local, and since I've been putting in a lot of extra hours at work I can actually afford it right now. I'm going to pull the valve-cover on my MJ, take a look-see at what's going on there, and if all that looks good I'm picking up a "new" engine....
Then I'll take it all to a friend's house and pay him $100+beer to do the swap with my help. He's got all the tools we'll need... I don't even know where most of mine are at the moment (all boxed up somewhere)
