Default Amc 360 Vs. Dodge 360?

Are they the same? I have an 84 Dodge 1/2ton with a 318 in it now. I have a friend ( ) that has a 79 AMC 360 that he is looking to get rid of. Will his AMC 360 bolt up the same as any other chrysler small block? Do I have to mod a bunch of stuff to make it work? thanks for any help

No, completely different motors....

Perhaps you could get an AMC TF727 bellhousing, though, to the dodge trans..Dunno..

Geez, I suppose you'll be needing that brushguard now to stand on..



AMC motors are pretty decent actually. I'd take a AMC 360 over, say, a 305 Anyway.

305s are for homos..

I remember from looking into a T-18 swap that the bellhousing patterns (engine block side) were the same for the AMC I6's and the V8's up to 401 if I remember correctly, and interchangeable with the 4.0's. I think some lengths might be different, I recall some variation in input shaft lentghs (which ones I have no idea). Theres a multitude of conversions and adapters for Jeep/AMC transmissions and bellhousings, I'm sure theres a way to fit something strong and reliable enough back there. Thats getting expensive though.

I don't know how I missed this post yesterday. I'm subscribing to this Forum now, so it won't ever happen again. :tonka:

It was already covered, but AMC is AMC, Dodge is Chrysler is not AMC. Chevy is not Buick. Cadillac is not Ford.

Anyway, tell your buddy with the 360 to call me if he wants to sell it. I've got quite a collection going. I thing I'm up to 7 AMC V8's now. :tonka:
