i should have posted this eariler but a was still kinda trying it before you guys laughed at me......
I took a 2000 4.0L block out of a cherokee and installed my head, intake,2100 motorcraft carb, header, and HEI distributor !!! i had to have the head gasket for the 4.2. all the front brakets bolted right on maybe a few washers to shim!!! the other minor problem was the thrust bushing!!! the 4.0 was a automatic. when i went to auto china to get one, of course they said "there a bearing now"!!! so i bought a new thurst bushing for a 4.2 and turned it down to fit.
All i have to say about this hilbilly rebiuld is it was very cheap and now i have a very stong engine with 36,000 miles on it!!!!
I ask a few noteable motor heads about this, 1/2 of them told me it wouldn't work, the other half said I made a stroker out of it!!!!
I've been wheel'in it for 1200 miles and no problems so far!!!
Like i said this made alot more power then the ole 4.2 this winter when we have more time, and it's cooler were gonna take it all apart if it all looks good then were buidin alot of these monsters!!!!
Why is it that after you get stuck everyone helps you out then tries to make it though the same spot???
