I apologize ahead of time if this topic has been gone through. I need to make some decisions quickly and could not find a previous thread. I bought a 04 liberty 3.7L 5 speed manual with a mistreated engine. looks like a valve is burnt and has a blown head gaskets. After pulling the radiator I do not think the former owner knew he had a 3 inch crack in the tank and he kept driving it. I bought a used engine with approximately 141K on it to replace the original engine. Should I put in a timing kit? I've been looking at costs and I see is the ITM kit on Rockauto. Does anyone have any experience or feedback about the quality of ITM parts? Are there other kits I should be considering that will do the job? Is it worth the extra money to just get the Cloyes kit? Below is a list of what I am replacing on the engine swap project so far: radiator coolant and heater hoses motor mounts manual transmission clutch kit water pump thermostat injector o-rings spark plugs What I am still considering replacing: timing kit (engine is on in the stand) oil pump (why not if I am doing a timing kit) With the old engine out and the replacement engine on an engine stand, what else should I consider changing? Am I nuking this project? Should I just call it a day and slap the used engine in already?
