Re: Simple ? about AMC 360
Thanks for the information, it is truly appreciated. I went by after work tonite and looked at the engine. It's basically a long block all the tin and he has an intake for it. I think I've conned the wife into letting me pick it up.
Unfortunately I do suffer from a county that requires emissions, but the bright side is no inspection other than checking for a gas cap and cats somewhere along the exhaust system or at least that's all they've done before. I'll have to seriously check into it before making the final decision on whether to do the swap or not. If it's something that I can't do because emissions, time and money, I'll put it up for sale here so someone more capable can have a crack at it. For now though, if I get it, I'll sit on it for a while until I can compile the parts inventory and do the swap right.
Here's the run down on the rest of the Jeep. It's an 83 CJ7 Renegade, 258 I6 w/AC, I added power steering and my uncle (original owner) put in a 20 gal fuel tank and that's about it. I'm the second owner and it's been in the family since new. Right now, 87000 original and starting to have some trouble... blowby causing the typical oil coming out of the PCV vent, and recently replaced the stock carb with a weber. Not sure how to tell which tranny and xcase I have though. The books say it is a T176 and Dana 300. Ozark said the stick would be strait with no bends. My stick is curved and the xcase shifter is strait. Jeeper2's post with the link said that T176 wouldn't last long with a V8. So, do I have a T176 and will it work alright if I drop the 360 in?
