360 amc

Hey I have the opportunity to pick up a 360 amc for my yj. It's only got 20k on it. It has the 2.5l in it right now. Has anyone done this motor swap before? What all will I need in order to do it?

off the top of my head I'm thinking...

new motor mounts
battery w/at least 700cca
bigger radiator
new bell housing (if it will mesh w/trans) or, new trans/gearbox if they won't.

is it carburated? or FI? If FI you'll need the computer most likely...

I know there is more, just can't think of it all.

Luckily it's carbuerated! If it doesn't mesh what would be the best tranny to go with?

no idea... anyone else do a conversion w/a 360 AMC? I've seen a YJ with one, just not sure what it takes. And the guy I know with one doesn't have the same phone number anymore. Not sure how I can reach him now

It will not mesh, nor hold up to the HP. Seen that.....

If interested, PM me..... I have a bellhousing and a tranny.
