Can AMC 6 cyl pulleys be used on AMC 304 V8??

Looking at my commandos 304 V8, i noticed that there is no pulley on the water pump. A buddy of mine has a couple of 6 cyls laying around and I am wondering if one of those pullys would fit the water pump. I just wanted to find out before I started pulling pullys.

thanks

Make sure that all pulleys are the same width. They aren't even the same width between different years of 6 cylinders. I had an 80 and 84 and both used different width pulleys on the crank.

I don't believe that swap will work but ya never know with a Jeep. I do know there are several different 6 cylinder pulley/water pump combinations so I would bet the same exists for the V-8's. I would recommend finding a complete set. I know of people having to shim the water pump pulley to get it to line up with the other pulleys. Good luck
