This is funny because I was just going to ask pros and cons of the 304 vs. the 350. My jeep doesn't need an engine yet but I was thinking I could get a crate 350 for like $1500 and I could probably sell my 304 for $500.

To answer your questiong it has been done and it is pretty straight forward. If you go to advance adapters website they explain the whole process including parts needed.

if your going to go through the trouble of keeping it AMC just get a 360 direct swap just make sure to get the matching flywheel (there externaly balanced)
