Engine swap time 4.0 to 4.7
3 Attachment(s)
Well Sunday is the big day. I am swapping out my old 4.0L HO for the new 4.7L Stroker, along with replacing the flywheel and clutch in my 91' YJ. I wasn't really able to get anyone to volunteer to help out last Sunday or this one, so I decided I am just going to do it. If any local wrench monkey's are board on Sunday and want to help out, you are more than welcome to and I will even provide lunch. Just PM or Email me and I will let you know where and when.

Good luck with the swap! I wish I could help, but I have got a few other things going on here. Who built the stroker for you? Looks the block is color matched to your Jeep.:) I've thought about doing this engine swap myself. You'll have to tell me your drag racing stories once this thing is up and running.

Best wishes-

I had S & J engines build it and for a good price, but as far as drag racing stories I will just be happy that I can finally go faster than a top speed of 30Mph on level ground again after almost two months. Plus it is built for torque (of course there is that bonus of the extra horsepower) but I wouldn't want to go that fast in a old style Jeep anyway. Guess I am starting to show my age :doh:

Well I am still working on getting the old engine out. Should be about an hour from now. If anyone has the day off and would like to lend a hand, let me know I could use the help.

I still want a shotgun ride after the swap. I plan to do the same swap when/if my 4.0 gives up the ghost.

OW- Did you get help?? I wish I would have logged on sooner. If you still need help this weekend, I would love to come and volunteer my time and hands.

I've got a couple hours available on Saturday if you need some help. Let me know.

Good luck! We have to tear back into mine this weekend! Thought we were done! :-(
