Re: V8 in a 83 CJ7, Ford302 or chevy 350
I think you'll find that both engines are great choices. I'm thinking that the lines of advise will be equally drawn (Ford vs. Chevy). I'm in the early stages of swapping a Chevy 350 into my YJ, and have done a lot of research on which engine. 305's are small, powerful with a lot of aftermarket support. 350s are a little heavier, but equally as powerful, and even more aftermarket support, as well as having (typically) more availability. I found that Chevy engines havn't changed much over the years, and as a result, it's usually easier to get parts. Hope this helps.
