360 back to 258

My scrambler came with the 258 stock. Ever since I've owned it, it's had a 360. I screwed up the 360 yesterday, and picked up a 258 out of a '77 cj7 today. Anything I should be cautious of when swapping? The 258 needs a flywheel, bellhousing, clutch, starter, alternator, and probably something else I'm forgetting. How much of this stuff will work off the 360?

Re: 360 back to 258

you can use the starter the clutch (if yours is good) and bellhousing but i think the alternator is different and i know that the flywheel wont work

Re: 360 back to 258

I hear tell your 360 flywheel is more in demand than one balanced for a 258 so you shouldn't have much trouble swapping ...

P.S.
A '77 block has 1/2" head bolts and is a perfect candidate for a 4.0 HO head swap...

Motor mounts are in demand too, so you can sell those or swap with someone putting a 360 in the place where a 258 was. Shouldn't be hard to find someone interested in swapping the motor mounts and flywheel with you.
