got the head back from the shop
Picked up the refinished head fdrom the shop. It is now the nicest part of my YJ.
So I started scraping down the mating surface. What a mess. Anyway, also started cleaning the tops of the pistons with seafoam. They're a disgrace as well.
Also, I mentioned earlier that I want to turn the crank manually. I don't see how that is done based on what I got from the po. There's a bolt stuck in the end of the crank... assuming that's how the timing chain cover gets fastened down? Or the seal for the cover? Not sure.
Pics are included ... I'm a newbie wrencher... any clues are greatly appreciated.
Just got my YJ...doesn't run yet and it's covered up for the winter. Makes my day just seeing it in my driveway, though....
