I wouldn't rush out and put a new engine in.........yet. Your engine needs a good upper and lower GI. Like Tierhog said, more information is needed such as mileage, cylinder pressure, close visual inspection for possible other leaks and obvious problems, such as dry rot spark plug wires, bad plugs. Cylinder pressure will tell you right away if your engine is a go, no-go. Mileage and previous owner info is also important. And by the way this is a Jeep JK forum but we do have a section for older jeeps. You may want to consider other forums that support older models. If you have some bucks to spend, replace the engine with a V8. Good luck.
