Re: amc motor mount questions
I just completed my 258 to 360 swap in a '86 CJ7 and used the MORE Bombproof mounts. They are Bombproof but pricey. The MORE's allow you to change the oil pan gasket w/o removing the motor mount and greatly simplified the installation of my headers. I was also influenced by the lack of quick availability of stock 304 mounts. The bolt pattern on my 360 for the engine mounts was completely different from the 258, so I needed both engine mounts. When comparing the frame mounts, I thought the driver's side mount could have been drilled & re-used but the passenger side would have required replacement. I couldn't find a pass side frame mount in the required time frame, so I bought the MORE's. Ofcourse, after my purchase I found a couple of places with the stock engine & frame mounts for $70-80 less than the MORE's.
