1990 wrangler has seen better days

my 258 in my 1990 wrangler islander edition auto trans. has layed down.still runs and has plenty of power when it starts.it takes alot of cranking when cold sometimes running the battery down.once it starts it starts easier but not fast while it is warm but has a signifiant amount of blowby.no water in oil and oil looks fine but there does seem to be a leak at valve cover and head gasket.it does still have this piece of crap carter.if it is something major i have found a 1977 258 low mileage out of a cj will this bolt right up.
