Do you have any bell housings off of the 304 or any AMC 6 cyl. I put a 304 in a CJ I had as I remember the bell housing was off of the 6 cly. engine that came in the jeep. You will need a 304 flywheel. Good luck , I loved my CJ 7 with the 304. I had a T176 4spd. in mine.

Welcome.

Which stock manual? Several were available in 86.

I used these guys when I put the 360 in my 85 CJ.

How did you come up with a 304? I drove a 1978 CJ-7 with a 304 since it was new. Ten years ago I swapped it for a 401. NIGHT & DAY difference. It cost no more to build than a 304.
I bought the last 401 flywheel from one of the Jeep catalog companies, don't remember which one.
