what are you doing> , buying a bare block?
why not say what is in hand. (fit what? just tranny and mounts or what? , be legal or make EFI happy, or ? all other parts on engine?)
i did a www scan and in 1 second, bam the 4 banger
not the 4 liter.
2.5L gas engine not the diesel of same size.
1984 to 2002 run (all year run lenght) not an answer.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_straight-4_engine
what does FIT mean.
to the mounts, the transmission, all will
be legal, say in CALIF? (strict year codes there.... btw)
make EFI happy (fit)
just the block, short block or just a naked block. you never said./
key fact on bell housing
Instead of the standard AMC bell housing
bolt pattern, AMC/Jeep engineers adopted the General Motors
small V6 and four-cylinder bolt pattern
short answer, all years fit, the short block.
In 1986 the head went under a minor revision, the head bolts were increased from 7/16 to 1/2 inch.
id bet that be lowest year.http://www.allpar.com/mopar/amc-25.html
any with 1/2"head bolts
here is a nice page. google hits are free. huh?http://engineguy.com/jeep-dodge-chrysler/2-5l-1.html?dir=desc&order=name
head bolt sizes
for sure the best answers are at all the top engine builders pages.
never on ebay. avoid them for facts.
you need a 530 block.
shop for that.
