Hi all.Im new to Bigjimny.com.I have a 99 jimny.Im rebuilding the engine after noticing water in the oil.The engine is out and I'm taking the head off tomorrow but I might try the oil pump first to see if it's mixing there.I ordered a rebuild kit from eBay and I'm worried about using it.It was very cheap.The link below is the kit I bought.Id appreciate advise. I would even bother using it if I had any doubts. Cheers

You'll only have a blown head gasket, no need for a full engine rebuild!

I know but I wanted to do a rebuild anyway and plan on doing a complete restoration job in undercarriage also and modify it for off road adventuring and possibly camping through Europe! I have the engine completely stripped and all internals removed.My problem now is I don't have socket to remove the head bolts.the are star shaped bolt heads

If they are torx there are special sockets, but the splined ones undo with an ordinary 12 point socket of the correct size.

That rebuild kit looked good value, about what you would have expected to pay in The Olden Days, nowadays you won't buy the head gasket set for that.

(If it is Chinese, as I suspect I wouldn't use the pistons & rings ;)

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Can you put a circle round the crack, I can't see one.

I've never heard of anyone having trouble with these engines other than head gaskets. You'll cause more problems than you 'fix' pulling it apart and re-fitting inferior parts.
