2007 4.0 V6 died

I think a timing chain broke... started blinking the CEL, running bad, ticking and then no power before it just shut off. Now when I crank it, clearly has no compression. Spins over with no resistance. Doesn't even have 100K on it yet. I guess it's time for a V8 swap...

I'm back! I have been busy but thought I would update you all on the 07. I pulled the engine and took it apart. The parts store harmonic balancer that I put on after the OEM one came apart, failed big time. It actually broke at the crank. this broke the lower sprocket and which in turn bent all the valves and broke off a couple. Motor is trash!

Wow. Been thinking of converting the 67 to EV. Not sure the parts exist though.

That takes recycling to a new level.
