Cj mopar 360 swap ideas

i've got an '86 dodge out back with less than 90k on it. it has 360, 727 tran, dana xfer. my jeep is an '84 cj that was already modified when i bought it so i don't know what it had stock. currently running a 400 chvy sml blck, 350 tran, stock dana xfer. engine probs is reason for desire to change. well, that & i'm a mopar guy at heart.
does anyone know if amc 360 eng mounts that i can buy from any jeep store will work on the mopar? would also like to know if i will run into problems fitting the 727 in. i want to use the xfer out of the dodge also. mainly cuz the xfer in it now is leaking & would rather not pull it apart if i don't have to.

Those year motors were absolute dogs. No power at all.
You'd be better off rebuilding the 400sbc.

The Dodge 360 has different mount points and bellhousing pattern than the AMC 360 so the AMC mounts wont work.

Everything I have read is that in a CJ the front driveshaft will hit the trans pan on the 727 where the bumpout is on the front of the pan. You may be able to lift it enough for the driveshaft to clear. Dont know what the TC is in the dodge. The 88 I parted had a pass side drop NP241.
