Complete CJ 7 258 for sale
« on: February 25, 2017, 08:52:33 PM »
I dropped my CJ off at Endangered Species Jeep Friday.  Some time this week I am hoping it is pulled and my new (to me) AMC 360 goes in.  Price is negotiable.  It is a worn motor, and should be rebuilt, but I am selling it complete.  Here is the CL post.  The Jeep is at Endangered, so feel free to swing by and check it out if local.  It has been fine around town driving, and in the woods, for as long as I've owned the jeep.  But, it does burn oil and the valves chatter a bit when driving up steep hills.

I re-listed it for 450, but 350 buys it. 





The 360 getting started.

If its the header I put on for you it was Headman .   Youd be smart to put that 2100 on this motor for mileage and off road ability . A small 4bbl wouldnt be that bad also.  I have a 390 set up for off road if your interested.    Good luck Dude.   FjR68

Are those aluminum heads or just clean.  I have a 2100 on my 401 with a stock cam and it runs great. 

Going down hill with a tail wind I can get double digit mileage.  I have a blown up 360 from my Race Jeep if you need any parts.

Thanks!  That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure. 

I got a Holley 670cfm Truck Avenger carb for the 360, which will be on a edelbrock performer intake.

Even though I just put a twin stick 4:1 dana 300 in the jeep, I simply don't go in the woods a lot.  I just drive it around time when I get a chance.

I wish they were aluminum, but nope. 

I may need a power steering pump and bracket.  I think Endangered lost mine.  Oops

Terry, what do you have on that 360 that's good? Got a aftermarket cam? Heads good?

It was a bone stock engine.

I dropped a valve and took out one head and piston, the block was scored pretty bad so I just junked it.  I kept a big box of parts off it.  I'm sure there are 7 pistons in there.  I wrote down an inventory before I put the box in long term storage(bottom of the pile).

I'm pretty sure I have another set of 360 and 304 heads.  I was playing around swapping the heads on the motors.  You can run 360 heads on a 304 but you actually see a little imprint on the piston where the valve touches ever so slightly.  You'd have to run 2 head gaskets if you wanted to do it long term.  The 304 heads on a 360 will give you more compression, but has smaller intake valves.  I ran a bored out Motorcraft 2100 on the Race Jeep back then so I don't know how it would feel with a 4BBL.   I also have a set of old style 390/401 heads that still have the Chevy style valve spring keepers instead of the aluminum double bucket type.

I'd be interested in the stock 360 heads so I can have them rebuilt without having to yank my engine yet
