Its nice to be in the presence of professional.
I need some advice on the following; I am getting ready to replace the connecting rod bearings and main bearings in my fuel injected '98 cherokee 4.0. I completely rebuilt my chevy 350 not to long ago but that was with the engine on the engine stand. I'll be doing this job with the engine in the jeep and me on my back. I have already replace the oil pump and timing chain a few months ago.
Question; Can I get away with just loosening up the main caps to very gently removing the old bearings that are towards the motor be pushing the bearing out from the side opposite the notch in the bearing?
Question; Do I have to remove the timing chain?
Question; I am only replacing main and rod bearings, do I have to prime the motor?
Any advice, ideas, critisicms, are appreciated.
