Those may help.  Now to dig through the schematics as I don't recall seeing that one when I have had things torn apart.  It does look factory.

I believe the 304 and the 360 are direct swaps minus needing brackets to mount the front axle
1980 Eagle 2 door sedan (future solid axle swap)
1981 Eagle Kammback (restoration in progress)
1983 SX/4 SOLD
1983 Eagle Limited wagon  *For Sale* SOLD

The 258 was the biggest engine in production Eagles.  Any Gen I, II or III AMC V8 will mate up with our automatic transmissions or I-6 bell housing.  You need to use the V8 flywheel for that engine as they are externally balanced.  The easiest way to gain more HP is to use a Jeep 4.0 either as is or in combination with the 258 crankshaft and rods to build yourself a stroker.

You are right about the Gen I motors.  Fuzzy brain that day.  Gen II & III are the ones you want.
