Heres the question and situation.
I have a 1986 CJ7, 4 cyl, 4 speed (T4), manual steering, manual brakes.
I have the chance to buy a running, registered and inspected 1978 Wagoneer. The motor is a 360, and has power steering, and of course, the th400 and quad unit. The motor has 130,XXX miles or so, but starts right up, and doesnt burn oil.
I was thinking this would be a awesome donor to replace my weak 4 cyl motor, and also, upgrade to power steering as well. Plus, have all the parts I need from the donor (almost)
My questions are:
1. Would I be able to use the radiator ? Or is it to large ?
2. What is needed to make everything mount up ? ie, tranny & transfer case etc. Should I look for a 3 spd instead from an older CJ to mate up to the 360 ?
3.Would anyone else be interested in whats over ? lol
I know there are more questions, but its late, and just need to know if its worth doing, or should I save the cash, and upgrade to a newer, fuel injected motor. ( vortec )
