69 Buick 350 from a 69 J2000 what to put in CJ7

I have a 1969 J2000 with a 350 Buick and stand trans and transfer case. I want to put the drive tran in my Cj7. It came with a 304 and stick. I sold the 304 and spent the money on the buick. The buick holds oil pressure at 60 pounds and is 10 to 1 compression.

New motor mounts, modified crossmember, new shifter, new drivelines, modified cooling system, trans cooler, oh and maybe a screwdriver would come in handy.
On the positive side, the buick 350 is an awesome engine.

I spent alot of money when I rebuilt the Buick but it sounds bad A$$. 10 to 1 should move it throw the mudd... Hopefully better than my 304. I just got some 38inch boggers for her..[/IMG]

Somebody can correct me on this if I'm wrong -but I believe you should refer to the engine as a BOP 350(Buick Oldsmobile Pontiac). This would distinguish it from a SBC 350 (small block chevy) when you are talking to various companies for parts,adaptors,mounts ,etc. if that helps. I don't remember off hand if it requires a different mount set-up,but there is a difference in a lot of other parts.

The only thing BOP about it is the bellhousing bolt pattern. Other than that the Buick, Olds and Pontiac engines were each unique unto themselves. Some shared displacements, but there still wasn't any parts commonality.

OK-I'm a little confused by the J2000 thing-I thought that was a Pontiac car? And yeah-I knew about the bellhousing thing, but wasn't sure having never messed w/anything except Chevy stuff.

My bad-learn something new everyday. I've seen the Buick V-6 in Jeep products before,but not the 350.

I thought the late 60's jeeps had some odd ball 327?

At any rate if you have the full package engine/tranny/transfer case you just need to find a way to bolt it to the jeep.

Yep, the AMC "Vigilante" 327. The Buick 350 was called the "Dauntless".

I thought just the V-6 was the "dauntless". I do see the 350 and the 327 listed as possible engines in an old Chiltons I've got.Not much else on them,there were alot of engines available over the years in Jeeps.
