- 1976 Cherokee S NT
started with a 1976 401 from the above mentioned Cherokee. This
engine was built in a race shop in Albuquerque several years
ago, but only has 40,000 miles on it when pulled for the transplant.
It is bored .030 over with forged pistons. Oil pressure has
been good and compression checks out just fine. It had a couple
lifters making some noise, so a new Comp Cams 260H and lifters
were acquired. Timing chain and gears also replaced. It also
got a Edelbrock SP2P intake that was bead blasted and a Carter
AFB 750 carb on top a 1 inch open spacer. A new water pump was
installed as well.
