My 83 Scrambler came to me with a 304 in it. Originally had a 258 but that was changed by the previous owner before the one I bought it from. Is their anything to look out for on this engine? Or just general thoughts good bad or indifferent that any one can tell me about it. My plan is to go through it but I am finding it difficult to find performance parts for it.
I had one in my 79 CJ-5... God that thing was fast.
Separate side pipes and no emissions equipment (I was a MI resident at the time).
I liked it.

Jim, that motor looks great the only thing I would change is the Fram filter. I put one on my 304 when I first got it and lost 10 PSI over a WIX. I don't know if their was an issue with that particular filter but I had read several threads on other forums that WIX was the filter to run on AMC engines.

I will change the filter, I was told that by a friend already also
I got this motor with the purchase of 82 CJ7
