    Any leaks? The gears should stay filled with oil. If no leaks, try a different brand filter. I prefer Wix or NAPA gold. Please tell me you’re not using a Fram.

    The 69 TSM says the gears should extend .0025-.0065 past the pump body. Given a .007" thick gasket, that would put end clearance from .0045-.0005". I think the end clearance is more critical than...

    I had a 77 CJ7 that was a factory 304/3 speed. I mud bogged in northern Illinois for years, running a highly built 304. When I moved to Colorado, I swapped in a pretty stock 360 (stock compression,...

    It's as easy as you say as long as the later 360 is factory stock. The TH400 was last used in 1979, so find a 1979 or older flywheel for a TH400/360. The TH400 flywheel has 3 large cutouts, the TF...

    It could be that the PS pump bracket or even the body of the pump has been tweaked from over tightening the belt. I'd try installing a new pump and/or bracket to see if it fixes the problem. The...

    I know MC had the prints. I don't know if they were PDFs or anything like that. You might send a PM to jeepsr4ever here on the forum.

    I don't think the high mount alternator bracket is compatible with A/C. If it's the one I'm thinking of, the U shaped bracket goes on the 2 front manifold bolts behind where the A/C compressor is. ...

    I have to say that I know Matt (owner of Bulltear). I do know that at one point nearly 50% of the covers he got were failing his check. I don't know if the manufacturer has improved their machining...

    Molnar is the only quality rod I know of. Their 2.100" journal has a Chevy wrist pin diameter, so you're looking at custom pistons with pin height adjusted to your stroke.

    Could be 3 things. The fuel pump, the fuel filter or the “sock” in the tank. You could just replace the pump, you’ll need a pressure gauge to test. It should push around 5-7 PSI. Replace the...

    The stock 401 journal is 2.248". When they cut the rod journal to 2.1", they remove the metal off center, taking as much as possible of the material from the bottom. This moves the center line of...

    Stroke is determined by the crank, not the rods. A 401 crank has a 3.68" stroke, the SBC 327 has a 3.25" stroke. The shorter stroke will rev higher and quicker. There's less piston acceleration,...

    The oil pump turns about 1/2 the RPM of the crank, so a simulated idle would be about 500 RPM at the pump. The pump, if it builds 50-60 cold PSI will nearly stall a 1/2" drill. I agree with trying...
