New to forum, new to posting

Hi, I just inherited a jeep from my grandson who reached his last nerve with it and decided to just give it to me even though he still owes thousands on it (he'll gladly keep making the payments as long as he no longer has to deal with the actual vehicle!). Well it's a machine so there's only so many things that can go wrong with it, right?

So apart from it having no exhaust to speak of (a single muffler with more holes than metal), I got the thing started and I can hear an unusual clacking sound. I removed the serpentine belt and started it again so I could rule out any of the gizmos it runs. Still got the same noise... It's not in sync with the engine idle so I'm going to guess it's not lifters or piston skirt and I think it COULD be a minor exhaust manifold leak... Next I'm going to take off the manifold and see if the gasket is just messed up... could be the cheapest fix on the jeep so far!

Well I've reached the point where the engine's coming out... Oh well... I'm guessing that dirt in the oil is an indicator that the bearings are at least a little chewed up! Someone should have told my grandson that mudding without the dipstick all the way seated is NOT a good move! At least by taking pics of how a hillbilly removes an engine may be entertaining for some
