360 swap?

I have a 1985 cj7 that has a 258 with 4 speed trans.I bought a 360 v8 to swap in my cj7.I was wandering if their was anything special I would have to do to make the swap.Any motor mount changes and will it bolt up to my stock trans.Also can I use my 258 flywheel and clutch or will I need to use the 360 flywheel and clutch?

It's amazing what a quick search in the engine section will turn up - http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...threadid=16111

You already know about the wiring changes.

You will need a 360 flywheel, but your 258 clutch will bolt up to it.
