CJ7 buildup help??
First of all I want to say thanx to all. I am new to the BBS here but I have been reading your pages for the last 2 weeks since I received approval from the "finance minister" to complete my rebuild. I am planning on a lift, lockers, engine swap(V8)/4.0 head treatment. Just like most, $$$ count. This is the first of many question most likely. I have a question about a V8 swap. I was on ebay earlier and found a 304 from an IH Scout II, actually a pair of them. Is this the same as the AMC 304? I also found an LT1 crate motor for $950. What are your recommendations? If I do the 4.0 head swap I won't be able to do the MPI, cash flow yaknow. I would like the V8 power and it seems that it can be had for less $ than an injected 4.0.
