Rolled XJ, finally finished rebuild

Rolled the XJ on the trails two summers ago... Didn't feel like swapping everything over (my call, many disagreed). finally finished with a roof transplant and roll cage, and while I was at it swapped out the circa '89 chevy 350 with a brand new zz6.. hopefully taking it out after breaking in the motor:

Thanks. Doesn't work, didn't bother to fill it. Never used it even when it did work on the old motor, only kept it because I had the compressor from my old motor didn't feel like buying a dummy pulley. The fans mounted on the roll cage work fine on the trail.
