360 motor... new question:

Does the donor 360 have to be AMC? Or will a donor from a Chrysler/ Dodge work as well?
Thanks
Mike

Re: 360 motor... new question:

Maybe I missed an earlier question, but, work with what? you can swap in just about any engine you want, it just depends on how many mods you want to do. do you mean work with your engine mounts and bellhousing? What Tranny do you have and is this a CJ?

Need the 411

Re: 360 motor... new question:

no it doesnt have to be an AMC, it could also be a Jeep before 92, then it would fit also, but only if your running the special paterned bellhousing, cast # tori89:9878

if not then youll need a Nissan Xterra front axle to balance your tire carrier.

and some flames on your hood.

and a big. oh nevermind.

whats it going in man?

Re: 360 motor... new question:

I figured this guy out. He is the one that posted about putting a 360 in a 4 cylinder YJ. He just hasn't figured out how to keep his topic in one post.

Re: 360 motor... new question:

OK, I see how the Jeep world works now. Ignore the question and get snotty.
The last post was about a friend putting a 360 into his 80s CJ. The responses I got were helpful, however the only 360 engines mentioned were from Jeep/ AMC products. The 360 he has access to is from a Dodge car. This brings up the second question. The second time I added to the other post, it got bumped to the top, and got a whopping 3 additional views and no more replies. Therefore, instead of adding to it again and not getting any more opinions, I decided to make a new post, and hopefully get some productive answers. Guess that didnt work either.
Well, good for you, you figured 'this guy out'. Hope you feel like a hero. If this is how the Jeep community helps out other owners, I am glad I own a Chevy.

Thanks to the guys who at least tried to answer.
Mike

Re: 360 motor... new question:

Well then, I'll echo the other replies you got here. What transmission are you wanting to use? What vehicle are you putting it in? What's in there now. The AMC and Dodge 360 are as similar as fraternal twins - same in name (360) only.

Re: 360 motor... new question:

Hey... thank you! That was the question. The info we got was that we could swap the 4cyl / 4 spd with another motor, and the candidates we were told were the 304, and a 360. So, he started looking and found a 360 from the Dodge car. But we werent sure if they were the same. I know you can adapt any motor to anything nowadays, but he is looking to a cheap swap alternative to rebuilding the bagged and beat up 4 banger. Is there such a thing? Is the bellhousing/ bolt pattern of the tranny he has now (not sure of the number) compatible with any motor besides the 4cyl (150 c.i.) he has?
BTW, This question is coming from a Chevy guy, where you can basically bolt anything to anything without any trouble at all. So, try not to jump on me for sounding stupid. Just want an opinion.
Thanks
Mike

Re: 360 motor... new question:

What exactly is the year? Jeep used 2 4bangers, a GM 151 and an AMC. I know that if it is the GM 151 "Iron Duke", it shares the bellhousing pattern with the common 350, and the 4.3 Vortec V-6. The 4.3 swap is sweet, good power and mileage, pretty close to a bolt in. A 350 will bolt in also, but the trans probably won't hold up.

Re: 360 motor... new question:

First off, it's an ENGINE...

Secondly, AMC made a 360, and Chrysler made a 360, and they WILL NOT interchange.

If you have an AMC engine now, the AMC 360 will bolt up more than likely.

Re: 360 motor... new question:

If you are swapping trannys too, then it doesn't matter what engine you use. Which tranny are you swapping with the engine?
What transfer case do you have?
What year vehicle?
What vehicle?
You still haven't answered these basic questions.
