You can look up my build, Exposed and Hackfabrication's right off the top of my head. I'm sure there are a few others. What is it out of? Carbureted or fuel injected?

Here's another helpful link. Installing Ford V8 Engines in the Jeep CJ, 1980-1986

They have some pretty good info in there on installing a Ford engine in Jeeps, other years as well too.

Also check with 84MSRB, he's done the swap.

You'll need to be a bit more specific with the engine year, as Ford switched the flywheel from a 28oz to a 50oz imbalance in the early 80's (1981 comes to mind, but I'd have to research it again). They are available in either 157 tooth or 164 tooth.

Get a bellhousing from a late 70's -mid 80's F-Series or Bronco. IIRC, you can either get the 302/351 or 300 I6 bellhousing. Make certain it has the Ford 'butterfly' pattern on the trans side, as FoMoCo started moving to different transmissions in the later years. Ford also used a hydraulic clutch in some years, and you can get one with the external slave mount, if you want to go that route.

You will also need to get a starter 'matched' to the flywheel and bellhousing you use. With Ford, you must match the flywheel/bellhousing/starter.

Motor mounts can either be home fab'd or purchased from AA, TransDapt, MORE, et al. I used the MORE mounts, and had one a few issues to resolve.

Carb'd engine makes for a simple swap (although EFI isn't all that difficult).

Otherwise, take the weekend and start reading:

Very true. Burned up a 94 starter in a 60's bellhouse. It bolted right up but the shaft was longer and stayed engaged to the flywheel. Only took 10 minutes to burn it up
