Oh yeah in the last year....it's had the crossmember ripped off a couple times (finally replaced with one made from 6" channel), buried over the marker lights in mud that resulted in having to have a JD650J dozer winch it out, exhaust unbolted at the headers by some rocks, tub is pretty much smashed beyond repair, carb rebuilt a couple times with different trick and still floods out frequently, and rolled once off a hill climb. I really just haven't been on here much at all in the past year. Been too busy with school, and building my off-road lawn mower....which should have a thread on here. lol

Good to hear man! Update.....well its not as interesting as you'd like I'm sure, but.....It's been sitting in the garage for the past few months. Motor is going to be pulled out and made into a 383 as soon as this semester is over (April 30th to be exact) and I have time and money to work on it again. Current motor needs some rod bearings in a bad way and has developed a lot of blowby. I've been meaning to get ahold of you and ask about the exact specs on that motor if you remember. Other than that just a few outings here and there. My goal is to have it all back together by July 25th for Trucks Gone Wild at King Knob. Btw....anyone know of a qualified machinist for some motor work?

Motor is a mystery Grant. I always thought it sounded like it had a healthy lope, but the inside workings were a mystery to me. It could be bone stock, it could be worked on. No clue.

Well I pulled the valve pan covers and discovered crane roller rockers so I would assume it's got some other work. We'll see when I get it out and tear it down.

Got the engine torn completely apart and all I can say is wow....I am simply amazed the whole thing didn't fly apart. Every rod and main bearing a JUNK almost worn through the copper lining even and they all have deep gouges in them. Thankfully they are all standard size bearings and haven't already been turned. The cylinder walls aren't too bad and hopefully a .030 bore will take care of everything there. Rings on the other hand....completely shot. Almost 1/4" gap in the compression rings when in the bore. No wonder it only had about 40psi cranking compression. Timing set is completely worn out to the point I'm surprised it didn't let go and destroy everything. So....plans have changed a little.

This should take care of the shotty scored up crank...and help with the whole stroker thing

Also going to go with a set of aluminum 64cc heads from JC Enterprise just like these, but at a lot better price.

Not completely decided on a cam yet, but I'm thinking something close to this..
http://www.jegs.com/i/COMP-Cams/249/SK1 ... ProductId=

Any advice or criticism on the cam choice is definitely welcome. I may end up running hydroboost brakes so vacuum isn't a huge deal. I've been told by several people that the 383's love a big cam especially with the 200cc heads. Now time to get back to work and get some $$$ set aside.

Sweet. Should make for a stout motor. Flat top pistons?

Yeah probably just go with the ones in the rotating assembly. I'm shooting for about 10.5:1 compression so we'll see where it goes. I hope this thing will break 450hp. Seen many other almost identical builds go close to 500 on the interwebs.

Well my interestes have changed and this project is up for sale...haven't come up with an exact price yet, but I'm looking to get a late model bronco in place of it if anyone knows of one. I'll post a for sale add when I come up with a price. Oh yeah...I never got the motor put back in it but have a standalone LQ4 6.0 with th400 sitting in the frame. That swap needs finished.

Yeah I debating on selling the other green CJ-5 that's been sitting with a bad tranny for several years now too. Everyone that used to have jeeps around home that wasn't afraid to beat the crap out of them now has a sxs of some sort. Not sure why but I really want a nice 95 or 96 Eddie Bauer Bronco with a 351 to beat around in.

Somebody bring me $5000 and you can have a whole garage full of jeeps and parts....There is a lot more than that just in parts if you were to buy them.

There's a full hydro setup, LQ4 6.0 with standalone harness and ECM, TH-400, NP-208, extra Corbeau seats, and who knows what else I've accumulated over the last few years thinking I'm going to get this thing put back together.

Building a capable off road Jeep is easy...building a street legal one that you can drive two hours away to wheel and then drive to work the following morning is the challenge.
