I was planning on swapping a 360 in my CJ, but the parts are way too expensive, expecially FI, and well... the parts are too damn expensive. I thought about a Chevy 350, but I came to the conclusion of a Ford 302. I can do that swap without a problem, I don't even need adapters, it bolts right up to a T-176 I have. Cheapest V8 swap with fuelinjection.
If the hubs aren't locked, they are disconnected from the axles, so the wheels spin independantly on the wheel bearings, when you lock the hub you force the wheel and axle to spin at the same time. If you have the front hubs unlocked and you are in 4WD, You will only have the rear two tires spinning, and the front two will be disconnected.
The thing that pisses me off about this forum, well actually all the Jeep forums, is that everyone thinks they know everything and people for some reason think there is only one way to do something, and there is only 1 logic to fixing something.
Found a 85 CJ7 tub in good shape with
minimal rust. The resto continues....
