I am very happy with the rebuild in the 86. I'm sure there will be some here telling you now is your chance to go V8.

My thoughts are, get some kind of brakes on it and take it for a parade lap around the neighborhood!!!

It is already a v8! Some say swap in a 360, but i found a rering kit for about 300$.

If there's no ridge you may get by. I'd at least run a 320 grit ball hone through the bores for the rings to seat.

Sometimes the ring packs will tell you what the recommended grit hone to use for their rings.

Of there is a ridge you can feel with your fingernail get rid of it with a ridge reamer before you push the pistons out if you plan on reusing them.

I've not done a AMC V8 but it seems the oil pump clearance is important. Find JeepHammers write up on it. There are plenty here to guide you In a V8 build. Look at Matt's it's got everything.

Replace the CAM bearings. You'd be surprised at how much pressure is lost through them worn bearings when you put new ones on the crank and rods.

My plan is to replace the oil pump because it comes in the kit.
