I stumbled onto this forum while researching my 68 Jeepster Commando rebuild. What a great bunch of folks, thanks! I currently have a 225 v6, running good, but stock. I've built and added bumpers, winch, rock sliders etc. so with all that and tools its gained a bit. Also running 33" tires, 4:56 gears with a SM 465 and Dana 20. My dilemma is should I rebuild the 225 (which is my first inclination) or try to find an EF 231? So far my plans for either one would be a stock rebuild but with Comp 252H cam, Offy dual plane intake with EFI and dual exhaust. I want to stick with either the 225 or 231 because I want to just drop one in, and I've been working on this for long enough. I would like more low and mid range power. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Scott
Ok, here is my situation. i am new to the the jeep owners world. I have wanted a cj since I was 13 yrs old and I finally got one about 2 months ago. I bought an 85 cj7, it has a 2.5 l 4 cyl with a t4 transmission. I bought it with the expectation of putting in a different motor and trans, however, what I did not count on was how much body work I would end up having to do. The body work has taken a huge chunk out of my budget for the motor. A buddy of mine gave me a 4.0 out of his 88 comanche. the engine ran but had been sitting for 7 yrs and all of the seals leaked, including the main seal. My original plan was to use this motor and carburate it since I don't have all of the parts for the fuel injection and I want to keep it as simple under the hood as possible. My question is, would this be possible and could i use the existing motor mounts. Also, what else would I have to do to make this work? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
