Check with Mountainman on LOSTJEEPS for parts. He might have a good used piston&liner. CaptainDean's clinking&clanking thread has great pictures and advice on the inside of these engines.

i just found upon further inspection that the liner in cylinder #2 is cracked from the impact
I thought it might be, that's a heavy impact. I would definitely replace the rod on that cylinder too.

Are there any concerns about only replacing one piston, liner, and rod, instead of replacing all of them? Will that affects compressions or engine balance? Also where do I find a new crankshaft pulley with an intact harmonic balancer?

I think vm motori offered a rod-piston-liner kit just to repair one cylinder.

Try damperdoctor.com?

I don't think swapping out one will be an issue.

I’ve found that all of the parts are available from Sasquatch parts or IDparts. If I have to rebuild my engine, I want it to last for a long time so I want to build it as best as I can

Does anyone have a thread they can recommend that has info on how to rebuild the CRD engine? Either here or on lost jeeps? I’ve got the engine down to the block, and I’ve just removed the block. I want to find some resources before I open the bottom end

The factory manual has a lot of information on the engine, make sure you pin the balance shafts for reassembly.

Where can I get a service manual? I think I’ve seen links for manuals posted here before.

CaptainDean on LOSTJEEPS has an excellent thread with many photos of CRD guts.

The factory service manual is best used in it's digital form; not as good in print. I have the print version with hundreds of post-it notes marking pages. It's written in "click here" format which defies normal indexing and referencing.

Good luck with your rebuild!
