258 from AMX car?

I lucked into getting a good (supposedly) running 258 for my 79 CJ7. This will save a rebuild of my 258. It is from an 1979 AMC AMX. It has an auto tranny but not sure which one (my jeep has TH400). I wonder is it the same engine as mine? Info on the amx engine-
Engine Family CP-8R1
Evaporation Family E-4

Will this mount up the same on my Jeep?

1. It's the same engine.
2. It should mount up.
2. The transmission should be a TF727 with a tailhousing assembly.

Safe Jeepin'
