Default Engine Swap Dilema

Ok so I swapped in a 1998 318 into my 01 TJ not knowing before hand one was pci bus and ccd bus communication. Ok no big deal. mechanical gauges and a hard wired OBD2 port. I spent roughly 20 hours trying to get it running. It would start and run on about 4 cylinders and that was it. I triple checked everything to no avail. I have a 82 360 all built up that came outta my W300. I pulled the 318 to swap in the carb'ed 360 and found my issue. I didn't notch the bell housing enough of the 727 and smashed the crank sensor.
No I dunno what I wanna do. Finish swapping the 360 and inject it later or fix the issue and put the 318 back in? Anyone have experience running either one? No I don't want to go GM. haha. TJ is on tons, 40s, 5.13s

Fix the crank sensor and reinstall the 318 gets my vote.
