so the semster is winding down i got the head that i want all rebuilt and its ready for larger valves/seats when i get a chance, still need to get another 93-94 head and rebuild that. found i need a new set of rocker arms, i need to look into cost of replacing individual rocker or if i should just get a whole new assembly. im leaning towards new so i don't have to worry about the rest of the rockers failing.
i was misunderstood and thought the block class was the semester following this one but it seems it starts in fall, but honestly thats better for me as it gives me more time to save for parts, so now i got it all home took the block apart and snapped some pics.
Some very ground up journal bearings
The nick in the crankshaft that im unsure if it will be able to grind out, oh well the 4.0 needs the new crank anyway just more motivation.
The broken rocker's you can see the tips on some of the rockers have been smashed in and float for about 1/8" up and down while others are rock solid and i cant push them down without really trying to do it.
Broken next to what it should be
what it should be
And we have a thrown connecting rod cap, the 4.0 needs new rods anyway so these would not have been reused unless the project is abandoned.
Connecting rod bearings are not in great shape either at least they are not as bad as the journals
And here you can see the effects of the two different heads the motor was running when i pulled it
now some block pics
and from early observations the block is in ok condition, no cracks, gouges, or disasters, now its time to save every penny for the next 3 months till this project picks back up
