Re: 4.0 Head source
Coast Guard? Jeez. Canít you confiscate a vehicle? Just kidding. I got mine at a junkyard. Most junkyards around here want about 200 bucks. But then, they donít like to take a head off a good engine. I lucked into my head at $125 for the head, valve cover, and exhaust manifold. But the bottom end of the engine was toast. They were happy to sell me the head. I didnít even have to take it off. $212 at the machine shop. But a couple of valves were bent. And no shipping or trade-in charges. You will need the valve cover as the one on the 4.2 wonít fit. The exhaust wonít fit either. I got this head off of a Cherokee as the manifolds on it are supposed to be stronger. So you might call a few junkyards first. Just to see what they have. Hope this helps.
