Re: a/c belt relacement
DO this with a COLD engine, so you do not burned by a hot engine...Loosen the 14 millimeter nut on the idler/tensioner pulleythat the AC belt rides on. Do NOT remove the nut, or the pulley will fall off. Then loosen the long 12 millimeter bolt, which will remove tension, and will let the pulley extend. Remove the old belt. Spin the tensioner pulley with your hand, make sure that it spins free & is not noisy, Fit the new belt, and tighten the 12 millimeter bolt until the pulley retracts,and tightens the belt. Finally, retighten the 14 millimeter nut.

if you are only replacing piston big end shells , this can be done on most vehicles with sump removed , but if your bigend main bearings need to be relaced , take out the engine.which i would suggest any how , bodging doesn't always work out cheap.
Check the Distributor shaft for any sign's of play. If play is present,you have (1) of (2) choices : (1) Relace Distirbutor (2) Have Distibutor rebuilt There is a seal in the distibutor that will wear and cause oil to get inside of the Distributor.
Also check to see if your vacum advance Diapham is broken,that will cause oil to get inside the distributor as well. To do the test,connect a vacum hose to the vacum advance(that's the round thing on the side of the distributor),you can suckon it see if it hold's vacum or you can purchase a hand held vacum pump.
Lastly,are there ANY other line's attached to the Distributor ?

Go to the autozone website at autozone.com and register your vehicle. It is free and will give you access to an online repair manual. The belt routing for your vehicle can be found there. Hope this helped and best wishes.
Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly
