My New Motor



I was doing a little Friday afternoon messing around, and I figured out how to get photos that I have on my coputer into my posts.

This is a photo of my new motor, right after I put the intake on. (You can see that it is still in the crate)

Re: My New Motor

The two pic above were taken about 6 weeks ago, Since then the motor has been put in the Jeep along with the trans, and the D300, everything fits pretty well.
This is the motor as it sits right now, fully put together.


As I post these pics, the Jeep sits all torn apart again, the new suspension is going on right now.

Going to be SOA, on 2 1/2" BDS springs. Couple D44's

Re: My New Motor

Not even close to this weekend.
I am hoping that the first weekdend in Aug of 2005 will be the first ride, where the Jeep runs under its own power.

As far as it not being an AMC..... Well.... I am using a Dana 300.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Re: My New Motor

Sweet! I just helped a couple of friends put small blocks in their CJs. They look and run great. Now I give them hell about having chromed up Chevy powered wannabe jeeps. They look at my old dirty leaking AMC and just turn up their nose! I hate to say it but I'll be making the swap one of these days....
