Dj5 1975 engine options

I have a stock Dj5 with the strait 6 in it with a load sludge in the oil system. If the engine dies i would like to replace it if its cheaper than a rebuild. I would like to know the options for the 727 tras bolt patterns. I have been looking over older threads but cant seem to sift through the i want to convert this to 4x4 threads. I would like 4 cylinder to 8 cylinder options. Also which would would be the most likely to have FI already. thank and Have fun

Also Fuel injection is not a high priority.

Last bump

If any one can post some links to DJ5 forums ill search there. I have not had the best of luck on my own. This is my first jeep and i have no desire to go 4x4. I want to just drive it around town. I have been looking at the amc 4 cylinder but cant find if it will bolt up to the 727. also the 4.0L engin which is supposed to last forever. I do know that since it is a jeep trans mopar engines wont work. I have never done a engine swap and since mine is dam near striped down to only the essentials i think i could do it. Please Help and Thanks.

the 4.0 is a derivative of the AMC 258,so although a mopar design change,anything the AMC 258/232 will bolt to, a 4.0 will bolt to.I am not familiar with your model,so I am just commenting on the engine block.Try switching over to rotella 15-40 to clean the sludge.Do a search for "Rotella" and you will find many threads about this.It may run for a decade just like it is.
