And I've been been out of the loop for a long time. Crazy work this winter.

Would these mounts allow a large variation of engines or just the 360? I got lazy and skipped a bit of the threads

Going to be replacing my engine in the next few months I think. Was debating a 4.0L out of a Jeep, but this gives a few more options.

For the lazy man, which motor would be the easiest fit / find?

Around Denver, 360s seem to be the most available with 304s second.

360s were used until the end of the classic Wagoneers until '91. 401s are harder to find and in high demand. 304s were very popular as a step up from the 258 for most AMC vehicles, but they ended around '81. 360s were vary popular and should be easy to find.

The 360 became the 5.9L did it not? It seems that for someone who has already modified their Eagle to a 4.0L that this might be the next step in the evolution down the road ;)
