Question about Cars & Trucks
Engine will only rotate about 170 degrees either side of TDC. I am getting a thud sound at stop (nothing metallic). I have removed the valve cover and checked for interference, timing is dead on, and I even ran a bore scopre in each cylinder looking for any objects in the cylinders...none. I also removed the transaxel and flywheel. The engine still will not rotate a full 360. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You have a valve hitting one or more pistons, and it is not a metallic noise it just stops rotating.

SOURCE: no compression in one cylinder
Timing belt slipped around cam pulley. Take off your timing belt cover and check the position. This would explain misfiring and compression loss. Stretched belt or missing cogs in belt likely culprit.

SOURCE: interference engine
all of the engines used in the hyundai's are interference engine's, that does not mean for sure u have bent valves but the chances are u did. source of info Gates timing belt Catalog.

SOURCE: Cracked Cylinder Head
I'd say moderately difficult: here are the instructions for replacing the head on a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport with 4.0 L engine:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 4.0L Engines
Cylinder head bolts may only be reused one time. If reusing a cylinder head bolt, place a paint mark on the bolt after installation. If a cylinder head bolt has a paint mark, discard it and use a new bolt. NOTE: Refer to Section 1 of this manual for the cylinder head torque sequence illustration. The illustration is located after the Torque Specification Chart.
During the final tightening sequence, bolt No. 11 will be tightened to a lower torque value than the rest of the bolts. Do not overtighten bolt No. 11.

The ignition timing is not adjusted with a timing light or with the engine running, and to set the ignition timing follow these procedures.
There is a mark or notch on the distributor housing that the rotor should be pointing to when the engine is on TDC. (Top Dead Center) This "Static" timing is all that matters and the computer will be able to control the timing as long as the ignition rotor is in that position when the engine is at TDC.
1. Place the engine at top dead center.
2. Look under the distributor cap and find where the number one terminal runs under the distributor cap, and where that position on the distributor cap corresponds with the distributor housing, and it should match up to a mark or a notch on the distributor housing (usually has a #6 for 6 cylinder engines or a #8 for 8 cylinder engines) indicating the number one TDC alignment position.
3. With the engine on top dead center the ignition rotor should be pointing to the number one TDC alignment mark or notch that is on the distributor housing, if it is not then loosen up the distributor and turn the distributor until the ignition rotor is pointing to and aligned with the TDC alignment mark or notch on the distributor housing and then tighten down the distributor, the engine should now be "Static" timed. (The more precise that you are aligning the TDC alignment mark with the ignition rotor the better the engine will run, and it will be less likely that there will be a camshaft to crankshaft correlation problem)
If the distributor can not be turned enough to align the ignition rotor with the number one TDC alignment mark on the distributor housing, or the distributor does not set properly and will not allow the installation of the spark plug wires then the distributor is not installed correctly and is most likely a tooth off and it will need to be re-installed correctly. (The distributor should set like it is shown in the firing order diagram when it is properly installed)
Here is a firing order diagram to also help assist you.
