Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

Since you have the head off: Now is the time to get a complete engine gasket kit. They are cheap and all vendors have them. I suggested you check and clean out the valvue chamber as its most likly very crudy with thick gunk. Now is the time to drain the oil and drop the pan. I'll bet you will find lots'a gunk in their also. Clean it out and check and clean the oil pick up. Use any cleaner of your choice but no water in the valvue area. All of this will help oil flow once you get it back together. The gasket kit will have the waterpump and top hose outlet gaskets. For cleaning I prefer kerosine but read the lower post about "my Jeep stinks" If you have a oil filter take it apart and clean it also. NAPA has the filters in stock. Do not take our or mess with the oil pump unless you know how to put it back or your engine will not run. Bill
