Wrong head gaskets? Wrong heads?

I am confused - pushrods? I thought an OHC engine in 02.


And I think HT has this set up...IDK

Sorry I am not the mechanic. I am trying to help him get these answers. He has been building engines 50 years. It has overhead cams

Re: Rebuilding Motor 4.7 Jeep Sign In

HT is my colleague here -Hammer Time and I think he owns an 02 GC with 4.7L




from service manual....copy and paste
Due to the orentation of the rocker arm, the camshaft intake lobes are not lubed in the same manner as the exhaust lobes. The intake lobes are lubed through internal passages in the camshaft. Oil flows through
a bore in the number 3 camshaft bearing bore, and as the camshaft turns, a hole in the camshaft aligns with the hole in the camshaft bore allowing engine oil to enter the camshaft tube. The oil then exits
through 1.6mm (0.063 in.) holes drilled into the intake lobes, lubricating the lobes and the rocker
Might explain the every other one lubricating.

I am HT,
Yes, I have an 04 with an HO 4.7


If he has been building engines for 50 years, you aren't going to resolve it for him.

Re: Rebuilding Motor 4.7 Jeep Sign In

Thank you for the information. I will pass this on. He is very knowledgeable on rebuilding . this is the second 4.7 he has rebuilt. Third motor he has rebuilt for me. All his contacts dont seem to want to work on this 4.7 engine. So it is confusing. Thanks again . Looking forward to more info if you can.
