    Hey guys. I have some questions. Bought this Jeep with a blown 4.0. He also gave me a bored and stroked 4.7(?) to install. I put new gaskets and bearings in it, and got it running. While having it tuned, it started knocking. I yanked the engine, and sent it to a machine shop. They put new bearings in it, and basically gave it back to me as I gave it to them, in pieces. Big lack of communication, but I'm past that.
    Anyways, I put it together. Got it stabbed in the Jeep. Trans in neutral, I can barely turn it with a socket and rachet on the crank. Do I continue to plumb it, and try and start it? Or does anyone have someone who is more knowledgeable than I am and can help me figure out what is going on with the engine? Thanks for your advice guys
