Are you sure? I thought the 198 had the earlier B.O.C. pattern.

I was under the impression that overhead valve engines do not fit under the hood of the old flat-fender, low-hood jeeps. Or is that only true of inline 4s?

Even the F-head 4 will fit in place of the L-head if you use a shorter carburetor. The one from an early '60s Ford Falcon with a 6 cylinder is supposed to be the ticket. So the CJ-3B didn't need to exist, had they used the right carburetor.

The Pontiac Iron Duke and Pinto 4s have also found there way into many a flatty.

Mine has a Buick 252 cid (4.1L) even-fire V6 in it and there is plenty of room under the hood.
