Have just disassembled ’69 225 which has 42,000 original which I believe to be accurate due to condition of rest of CJ5. This sat, obviously for years at a time. Lot of sludge, blocked oil passages in head etc. Engine components all look very good. The only thing I really question is the cylinder walls have wear marks which remain after cursory honing. Pistons appear good as do the rings. I’m leaning into boring and going over sized. My question is are 2nd pistons and rings available and where. Thanks
I was just about to slap a set of fender well headers on my 66 cj 6 with a 225 and it seems I have heard quite a few folks say they prefer the stock manifolds. I intended to move up to a 4 barrel intake and Holley 390 at the same time. What is everyone's opinion on this matter?
Getting my 225 back together, not rebuilt, I just took it apart to look things over. Question I have is how difficult should my oil pump turn. I did put in a melling high volume kit a couple years ago, I just don't remember what it felt like. I wanted to confirm oil flow so I rigged up a priming tool, one handed is somewhat hard. I put it on my drill motor and it really makes the drill work to turn it. Definitely pumps oil (all the way across my garage) just a little concerned with the pump. Any thoughts?
