And the diagnosis.....

Apparently over 200k miles of religious Mobil 1 Synthetic oil changes didn't do the trick. Funny thing is that the inside of the TJ's engine looked clean as a whistle. Wipe parts off with a rag and they looked new. The ZJ donor's engine was baked on black on the inside. We resealed it completely and I've put 8k on it since the swap.... still doesn't leak a drop... which is odd for a Jeep.

Still want to rebuild the original block. That's a rainy day project.
