Just wondering.<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by porkchop on Nov 5, 2006, 6:56pm<br/><br/>Not worth it. I had one in a 67 wag. Lots of torq but finding parts for one is just as hard as the 230, if not harder. <hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by stanman on Nov 6, 2006, 1:47am<br/><br/>oh. just was wondering if it would be a viable swap<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by fisherman on Nov 6, 2006, 1:52am<br/><br/>You could do it easy enough, as they came in full size trucks and wagoneers for a couple of years, its just an oddball. You might have a hard time finding parts, and pay a premium. Probably be better off going with something newer and easier to get parts for. Lots of other options. If I had one and it was known for sure to be a good engine I probably wouldn't have a problem putting it in. After all I'm going with a Buick 350. <hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by stanman on Nov 6, 2006, 8:09pm<br/><br/>Would the bellhousing pattern be the same?<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by fisherman on Nov 6, 2006, 9:50pm<br/><br/>Good question, don't know.<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by brute4c on Nov 6, 2006, 10:23pm<br/><br/>There is only 1 engine on Earth besides the 230 that shares the same bellhousing pattern...that is the older 226 flat head 6 cylinder.<br/><br/>Other than that NOTHING will bolt up without adapters.<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by alqcca on Nov 6, 2006, 11:04pm<br/><br/>Have one in mine that the FD installed.<br/>The bell housing I assume came with the engine and bolted to the T98<br/>However a longer input shaft was needed fo the tranny.<br/>they sold off the truck for that reason.<br/><br/>The only reason I like it it that it is the v8 that comes from the same year civilian truck.<br/><br/>Other than that parts are a pain!<br/><br/>When it goes I'll put the 360 from my CJ in it<br/><br/>Al<br/><br/><a href="http://img386.imageshack.us/my.php?image=imgp3252bs9.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img386.imageshack.us/img386/3047/imgp3252bs9.th.jpg" alt="[image] " border="0"/></a><br/><br/><br/><hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by stanman on Nov 7, 2006, 1:10am<br/><br/>I did a little research on the engine and AMC made 3 versions, the 250, 287 and 327 from 1956 to 1968. But Jeep had them only from 1965 to 1968. One would think that you could find parts but I guess not. Just for kicks and screams, how hard would it be to swap in one? would the motor mounts be similar or totaly differnt?<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Vigilante 327 V8</b><br/>Post by porkchop on Nov 7, 2006, 7:22am<br/><br/>The motor mounts on a M715 look the same as the ones that were on the '67 wag I had. without having them side by side it is hard to say. But I am thinking it should drop right in. <hr size="1"/>
