Hello Everybody!
Passenger side front of block beside/behind water pump (kind of) by fuel pump. There is a flat machined surface that sticks out. Should say 345 or 304. 5.6 is 345, 5 is 304. Pressure plate and clutch are most likely the same for either one though.

Newb here Newb here!

Hey all I have a 1983 Ford Bronco 2 with a V-6 and stock axles. I am hoping to put a set of 44 inch super swampers on it. What kind of modifications will I have to do? Will the stock engine have enough power? I was hoping to get a lift kit for it without doing anything else....... LOLS J/K

Just a wheeler with an old Scout and a crusty set of wrenches joining the site to get some info and hopefully give some too!

alphamav Newb here. I like the variety of forum topics. Thanks for maintaining the site y'all. I first found this site when I had my '94 XJ Limited. I sold the XJ because it turned into too much work since I let myself get conned when I bought it, , plus I want to stick with body on frame.

I currently have a '12 JKU Oscar Mike which is probably going to stay stock for a loooong time.

I'm planning to buy my grandfather's (R.I.P) '67 CJ-5 from my parents. This will probably be my most active project.

I dream about building a CJ-2A or CJ-3A since my dad regrettably sold my grandfather's '48 CJ-2A for about $400, a pittance of its worth even 10 years ago, while I was away in the Navy. The only thing wrong with it was the gaping hole in the engine block and rust. It had a GREAT condition Koenig Iron Works top. All is gone, the buyer (a neighbor who kept pecking at my dad to sell it to him) sold it so he could build his other Jeep and the guy he sold it to apparently parted it out.
