My super slow HO/Renix Cherokee build

Post by 89WhiteXJ on 7/24/2011, 12:30 am

This is a build that will prob. take me a long time. I have had this 89 cherokee in my garage for almost a year. The jeep cought on fire under the hood after being stolen. We bought it from a friend. The trans was supposed to have been rebuilt. Well, I got the head off and cleaned up a lot of the melted crap from the engine bay. Today I got some more time to mess with it. I removed the alt., starter, water pump and almost all the oil pan bolts. took the trac bar loose and the steering from the pitman arm. I am trying to decide if I want to rebuild the motor with it in its place or pull the block to rebuild and install the HO head.

Just the engine bay with a lot removed.


The nasty inside where the water pump goes.

Today I pulled the Crank Pulley, timing chain, Cam and Lifters. I had a video of the Chain, but for some reason it will not play. Guess I'll just replace it. I pulled the motor to this point might as well replace it all. Almost just a bare block sitting there. Should I replace the Freeze Plugs?



Look as the rubber coming out of the Crank Pulley. Guess I need that new too.

Ok so I did a quick hone job to one cylinder to see what was up. There is lip at the top and I was wondering if maybe some was carbon build up. Now, I did not want to pull the block and get it bored but let me know what you think. There is still a lip. Its not hugh but it is there.

man look at the camera phone picture.

i have never took a 4.0 apart so i dont know if that lip should be there. but with a 5.0 ford that would mean a rebore is needed.

it will still get built...but not as a daily driver...i see it as a forum hardcore build. something to build badass go anywhere crawler with. make it the off~camber 4x4 business card so to speak.

Now that engime compartment has plenty of room to fit a V*. And if they make a kit, SBC and SBF are dime a dozen on CL. The rest of it doesn't show up as much, but they do show up. Interesting as I said.
