Gettin' ready for the white stuff!

Thanks to Geeeep (Dave Pitts of PA) for selling me the old J-10 almost 7 years ago. I have been using it to plow the common road I share with 10 neighbours for the past several winters. I'm the hero of the neighbourhood!

The camshaft finally flattened on a couple of lobes. I'm going to change it this weekend. Has anyone done the cam in an inline 6 in a J-10? I need to know if I have to remove the grille to get it out or will simply removing the rad be enough space to remove the cam.

Mark

I wish I still had that truck. At the end of the world it will probably still be plugging along.

Plow Jeep

Dave:

I will be happy to sell it back to you (just before the end of the world - smile!)

I pulled the cam (and, yes the grille has to be removed) to find three exhaust cams worn right down so they were round - not eve a trace of a lobe. The engine still ran with three exhaust valves not opening at all! I have never seen a cam worn like that in my 45 years of rebuilding engines. I'd post photos if this site would let me - tried several methods to no avail.

Merry Christmas!

No modifications so far... Yeah, I'll probably keep it stock.

Never swapped an I-6 cam in frame but they are loong cams. I'd suspect you'll need to pull the grille too. Measure the block. That's how much room you'll need in front of the motor.

Most of the time the oil pump screen is clogged, which starves the cam. Did you pull the head to do lifters? I worked on one in a closed in military vehicle that I had to do the lifters from the bottom!

In case you didn't know, a 4.0L can be swapped in place of the 4.2L ('72 and newer 258) Just no fuel pump lobe or spot on the block.
