The venerable Jeep 4.0-liter inline-six engine has powered millions of Jeeps, including CJs, YJs, Wranglers, Cherokees, and Wagoneers. The 4.0 delivers adequate horsepower from the factory, but many off-road drivers want more horsepower and torque to conquer challenging terrain, which means these engines are often built and modified. The Jeep 4.0, or 242-ci, is affordable, abundant, exceptionally durable, and many consider it one of the best 4x4 off-road engines. In this Workbench title, veteran author and Chrysler/Jeep engine expert Larry Shepard covers the rebuild of an entire engine in exceptional detail. He also delves into popular high-performance modifications and build-ups. Step-by-step photos and captions cover each crucial step of the engine disassembly. He shows the inspection of all critical parts, including block, heads, rotating assembly, intake, and exhaust. Critical machining processes are covered, such as decking the block, line boring, and overboring the block. The book provides exceptional detail during the step-by-step assembly so your engine is strong and reliable. Installing a larger-displacement rotating assembly or stroker package is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase performance, and the author covers a stroker package installation in detail. With millions of Jeep 4.0 engines in the marketplace (which are subjected to extreme use), many of these engines require a rebuild. In addition, many owners want to extract more torque and horsepower from their 4.0 engines so these engine are also modified. Until now, there has not been a complete and authoritative guide that covers the engine rebuild and build-up process from beginning to end. Jeep 4.0 Engines is the essential guide for an at-home mechanic to perform a professional-caliber rebuild or a high-performance build-up.

Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock car, drag racing, and other forms of racing, making history in the process. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles. In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Sure-Grip, and AMC Jeep axles has never been published before, and Mopar, Jeep and AMC enthusiasts are hungry for this information. The Dana and AMC axles should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore there will be a consistent demand for this information. This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.

The Jeep Cherokee XJ is a pioneering SUV that delivers commendable performance and off-road capability. More than 3 million Cherokee XJs were manufactured during its production run. However, when the XJs rolled off the production lines, they were built primarily for the street. As a result, XJs need crucial modifications and high-performance upgrades to make them better for off-road duty. In this updated edition, author and veteran Cherokee expert Eric Zappe guides you through each stage of an XJ build, so you can take the mild-mannered, bone-stock XJ and upgrade it to a capable off-road performer. Zappe delves into suspension bolt-on improvements, including lift kits to increase ground clearance and suspension travel. He also covers high-performance shocks and long-arm suspensions. Wheels and tires are your vital link to the terrain, and he reveals all the important considerations so you select the right combination. XJs need a heavy-duty steering system to negotiate challenging off-road conditions, and Zappe explains several ways to upgrade the steering. Driveline and axle upgrades are an important part of the performance equation, so these performance improvements are covered as well. But he doesn’t stop there; he also explores engine performance improvements for the 2.5-, 2.8-, 4.0-liter engines so the Cherokee has more power for off-road performance. In addition, he covers some basic tips for body strengthening and adding skid plates. If you’re ready to go off road with your Cherokee but you’re not planning to build a top-dollar off-road machine, this is the book for you. With the techniques and latest products described in this book, you will be able to upgrade your XJ to much higher level of performance and your XJ will be at home off and on road.

Meisterliche Erzählungen von Englands größter Schriftstellerin Ein Unfall mit tödlichem Ausgang. Ein geheimnisvolles Satzzeichen. Ein aufdringlicher Besucher. Ein plötzlicher Herzstillstand. Es sind die unterschiedlichsten Dinge und Ereignisse, die Hilary Mantels Figuren aus der Lebensbahn werfen – mal für kurze Zeit, mal für immer. Gemein ist ihnen, dass sie tief ins Fleisch des Daseins schneiden. Mit einem untrüglichen Gespür für die Balance zwischen subtiler Andeutung und zielsicher gesetzten Schockeffekten entlarvt »die größte englische Schriftstellerin« (so die Jury des Booker-Preises) die Abgründe, über denen das Leben wie ein dünner Teppich liegt. Diese hintersinnigen, pointiert und mit lakonischem Humor erzählten Storys sind der Beweis, dass die Großmeisterin des üppigen historischen Romans in der kurzen Form – und im Hier und Jetzt – nicht weniger heimisch ist.

In diesem etwas anderen Chemie-Buch lernen Sie die Grundlagen der Chemie kennen und erfahren, wo sich chemische Phänomene im Alltag bemerkbar machen. John T. Moore macht für Sie so schwer vorstellbare Begriffe wie Atom, Base oder Molekül begreiflich und zeigt, wie man mit dem Periodensystem umgeht. Mit Übungsaufgaben am Ende eines jeden Kapitels können Sie dann noch Ihr Wissen überprüfen.
