the time has come to say goodbye to the 4 cyl motor in the jeep. in its place will be going an AMC 360/727/dana 300. [36]

I could really use some help, i haven't had to pull a motor from a jeep but it should be fairly straight forward. I should have everytool needed but no airtools available to me. my place is in new west very close to Royal Columbian hospital. beer, pizza and [stoned] provided to all who show up and lend a hand.

going to start tonight/thurs/fri night around 6 and all day saturday. anyone able to srop by and lend a hand, or drink some beer and watch [cheers] , would be great.

thanks :D

so far progress has been good, spent all day sunday working on the jeep. few more things to disconnect and then i can pull the motor and the trans/tcase out. so far the only inverted torx bolts i have come across are the 2 starter bolts. the top 2 trans bolts are normal bolts unless i am not seeing the torx ones. will be wrking on it again tonight.

motor is now out and there were no torx bolts on the top of the trans. the engine was rebuilt before i bought the jeep so previous owner must have changed them out or they just not used for the ax5. was a pretty simple job overall

the 360 i'm putting in is from an 81 cherokee, I ordered the advance adapter motor mounts already, high steer arms for the d44. it will be sweet when its done!
