ok i am having no luck finding any listing or info on this so maybe you all can help me create a list:D
From the looks of things AMC engines were a basterdized creation of a bunch of other makers designs/parts(correct me if i am wrong here) And with a lot of AMC performance parts being a LOT more pricy than say a chevy SB , what parts (if any) can be substituted with parts from another maker.(oil pumps/rocker arms/whatever)
example: you can used chevy SB pushrods

just trying to save some cash here
thanks, Doc

Ahh let's see. Your best bet is to look an a PAW catalog or other 1000 page wonder and compare. SB Chevy pushrods, Ford rockers, or Pontiac to get 1.65 ratio. A little work in the heads and you can use other OEM valves, one of my sets of heads has BB Chevy intake and Chrysler exhaust.
I know the rod bolts are specific, as are head bolts.
Here is a good AMC forum: http://pub8.ezboard.com/famcforummodifications

What they said and no they are not some bastard deal. The stuff hanging on them is such as carbs starters etc, but the engines (360/401) make very good power. The thing as you seem to know is like everything they cost more than Chevys.
