I used chevy ones. Got a 40k miles set of 8 off a guy going bigger for 80 bucks off a chevy forum. Can't remember what one.

Had Rich clean, flow test and match a set for me.

note: i have never done a engine build before and will probably ask alot of stupid questions...my current motor is knocking rather obnoxiously so my lazy stroker build just got accelerated a bit...(ok alot, if i wanna run the pig gig in my rig)..ummm yeah so i have lots to do...

thanks grifter

I ran a Crane cam that was just sorta like a RV cam. Just a low end torque cam.

alright i am back, went to my local napa today and had him price me a rebuild kit for my xj...

price qouted was $656-ish not including my old mans discount..however the kit the napa guy priced included new stock pistons and rings, and a new stock cam(which i dont need), all of which wont work if i over bore the pistons and go with new pistons as is often recommended..

so what should i be looking for for a standard rebuild kit price wise..not including pistons /rings or a cam. and who did you order it from?

thanks,

Grifter

oh and my currently running motor now sounds like it will blow up tomorrow ..yeehaw..

Here's a full kit....it includes all the crap you don't want, but it's only 375 bones. This is an Enginetech kit which contains Silvolite Pistons, Hastings or Clevite Rings, Clevite Gaskets, Melling Oil Pumps, Avon Timing, Melling Cams, Clevite, King or Federal Bearings.

Clicky

muddypaws, thanks for the input... if i went that route i could just order the pistons that come with it 030 over that way i would have to custom order any from some other dealer (which really simplifies the build for me.. ..would i have to also get piston rings at 030 over ? thanks again..

Grifter..

sweet..me and my motor..hopefully soon..

Yea, that kit gives you the option to order the pistons, rings and all bearings at whatever size you want.

Just wondering about rod length....I've read you can use the old 258 rods (which is easier and cheaper - from what I've read), but I've also read you can retain the stock 4.0 rods, which would make it into a long rod motor.....however, you've gotta get custom pistons for that app....while this may seem bad, it would enable you to set up a custom dish to lower the C/R, and allow lower octane gas.....

So, did you use the old AMC rods or the stock 4.0 rods?

Default What Springs did you Use?

I sure wish I would have read this article before I did my XJ 90 4.6 stroker.

I had serious spring problems, I got some bad advice about a couple of different set of springs. I currenty running stock with a 0.10 spacer. The set of springs I installed the first time had a compressed height that was too tall. I destroyed a set of lifters, push rods and a Comp Cam extreme 4x4. I though maybe the part number was in the photo, but I guess the photos were axed for space on the site.

I am running 24 LB Mustang injectors for the fuel, and premium fuel. I did ok, but I didd't get the Quench quite right. I am currently dialing in the tunning.

Thanks,

CrewchiefRuss
