Re: Doing the Rings -> 258
The job itself is not extremely difficult, and will bring a new long life if done correctly. i am almost done rebuilding my 304, and so far so good. i highly recommend getting a hold of a Jeep service manual for your model and taking it slow. If you have any about questions about parts or precedures get in touch with me. Also, be sure its the rings before you get started. How many miles on the engine? Have someone correctly perform a cylinder leak-down pressure test, definitely worth the time or money, you should hear ring blow by coming through the valve cover with the oil filler cap removed. Godd luck, Scott
