I will be removing the engine this weekend. Should I replace the clutch disk or plate now that the engine will be out. Seems to me that I should go ahead and replace that since it is a wear part and I will have access to it. What do you think?

I think very few people read these posts/360 motor mounts Bombproof

I think there are only a few guys here that read this part of the forum. I still think its a great idea, got my 304 out this morning with no problem thanks to this section, I will however re-post this in the regular forum just because the higher vis may get me a good reply. I will be replacing the 304 that I took out this am with a HO 360 that I am having put together and I want to use heavy duty motor mounts due to increased hp and heavier projected use. I want to go with the MORE BPs but am looking for a less expensive place to order them, anyone out there have any luck finding them for a AMC 360 1977 CJ5 for a decent price? Also, do I need to buy the rubber bushings too or do the mounts come with everything.
Mike

if you dont want to go with the more mounts just get the urthane mounts for the factory set up thats all I use on mine and I flash the converter to 4000 rpm at launch at the drags and get a 1.75 60' and a 12.05@108 mph with 33x10.50x15 slicks and they have held up good for me - I have been useing my factory mounts now for 30 years and only lost 1 mount with a 304-360-401 since 1979 just a thought

just to add my $.02 MORE makes some really good and quality stuff. My shackle reversal kit was great. The stock motor mounts I'm using are in my opinion bombproof

Awesome thread guys. After posting a thread a week or two back of thinking about rebuilding my 258, I am now in the market for a 360. I have an 85 CJ7 with a 258, T176, Dana 300. (I didn't know this until someone told me..LOL.)

85 CJ7. Dual dipsticks, overhead ashtray. Chrome muffler bearings, twin turbo deucenhoffit's, 4 in the floor, 5th under the seat. :)

Ive currently got a 304, but was looking at rebuilding a 401 and dropping it in. Would I get much increase in the 401 vs my 304? This would be the biggest thing Ive ever done with the jeep. Also, is there a website or anything that could teach me about engines? cause im clueless when people start talking about cams and boring and all that terminology, but I really want to learn it all.

Are we talking stock configurations or modified engines?

pretty stock 304, but if I did a 401, then I would do stock/performance. with what I could afford. If not then Id upgrade my 304. I think I'm gonna go with a 401, I just need major guidance on what Im doin. I am going to a junkyard soon. Whats a good way to check the engine if its decent or not? and more importantly, if its an AMC 401?

Hey Tim,
I have been looking for a 401 around here for awhile now. If you look at a junkyard, the block will be stamped above the driver's side motor mount. Look at your 304, it will have 304 stamped in the same place. I think that it will be much easier and cheaper to find a 360. A running 401 is going to cost about $1000. And it will probably need to be rebuilt. A 360 will cost around$300. Really it is the availability, I have been looking for a year. If you find 2 let me know. Good Luck.

This on ebay but it is a little expensive for me. Maybe if it was running. I also want the dogleg ports instead of the rectangular ports. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sid=p3907.m32f

rectangular were used up to 69 and these motors have 7/16 head bolts
dog leg were from 70 up and use 1/2 head bolts

dog leg flow better then the rectangular ports
