99 block

Post by Hydro.0 » March 24th, 2020, 5:47 pm

Hello all,

I have a 99 complete jeep xj engine and I need some help on what steps need to be taken, as to see if this can be built up.

I pulled the engine after finding some pretty sizeable main bearing flakes. The crank isn't pretty, funny thing was she ran great before I learned this.

Anyway, if there's any information out there you all could point me to, on what I need to do to see if this block can be built I would appreciate it.

Thank you

Take your block to a local machine shop and have it assessed.

Ok,
What do they need to check?
And will it matter if I pulled pistons/crank/ head for ease of transport?

Thank you

Won't matter unless you wanted to pay them to take it apart. :D

Just pull the engine apart and take the bare block with main caps and bolts.
