Amc 258 question
 
Are the inline 6 engines in amc cars 248s? Could i get a block off of an amc car w/ a 258 and put all the parts from my jeep onto the car block and put it in my jeep?

I'm not too familiar with the individual model years of AMC cars, but I know that the Eagles from the 80's used the same 258's that the CJ's had. Interchangeability of parts shouldn't be a problem.

Only difference that might exist between the 258's in the cars vs the 258's in the trucks would be valve train/cam & accessories. Anyone else?

Hello, welcome to the board. Please fill out your profile. It helps everyone else here help you. You might have sombody in your neck of the woods that may help you even further. As far as I know 232's(earlier model, just smaller) and 258's no matter what they were put in will match up. Good Luck.

AMC wasn't truely inventive, a 258 was a 258 as far as the base engine goes. The CJ's had a six (6) quart oil pan and there could have been different cams or something like that I can't be sure on that count. There was never a 248 but there was a smaller version and someone said 232... that sounds right.

If you have a block out of some old Concorde or Eagle it won't be enough different to make you care.

the amc cars have the same engines...

232, 258, 304, 360, 390, 401 and i think there was a 290 and a 343, but yes they are all the same except some minor (oil pan, etc) differences whether they are from a jeep or car or truck.
