    IT'S ALIVE! However:

    The oil leaks from the top of the cannister. What is the correct order of the cap and various felt, rubber, and crush washers?

    A total Jeep geek observation.

    The listed displacement of the 4 cylinder engines is 134.2 cubic inches. The firing order is 1-3-4-2.

    Coincidence?

    Yep, the outlet near the fuel pump was plugged. Since the filter and return line are brand new (installed somewhere back up the line), it would make sense that it is plugged.

    Oil filter lines

    Okay, I see that the oil filter fills with oil and the overflow goes out the side and down to the timing gear cover, but where does the oil line come from? I'm working on another person's project...

    I am almost certain that is was originally a 24 V system because the battery compartment has room for two batteries but one tray is gone.

    Thanks. I will count the teeth on the flywheel. I'm pretty sure that the Jeep has been converted to a 12 v system because the headlights have 12V on them.

    Starter questions

    Nothing wrong with JC Whitney if you fit the parts. Whoever put the rings in didn't bother to test fit them. I doubt the engine has run in a long, long time. The bearings are great and look new and...

    Thanks. There really isn't a ridge around the cylinder. It's more carbon build up than ridge. I'm going with a set of 0.020 oversize rings and see if the have a decent end gap.
