This is the very first time we actaully tried to start the engine after a complete rebuild of the AMC 360. We've been working on our first complete vehicle rebuild/restoration a Jeep CJ7. Getting closer and closer to driving her around. Had some trouble with the video cutting in and out, so I'll apologize in advance.
75 Jeep CJ5 304 - first start after rebuild
First start after rebuild. I first crank the engine over with ignition off
to get fuel to the carb and to make sure the oil pressure builds some. (yes
I did prime it before hand) Once I see fuel in the filter I crank it a
little more to fill the float bowl.Then I turn the ignition on and we have
some internal combustion. Timing is off quite a bit so it doesn't stay
running until I adjust it a little, then it fires and runs. The noise you
hear, and see me looking for is an Exhaust leak....headers, they can be a bitch...
Update on exh leak....I actually had to build sections of the header
sealing surface with weld and file flat....cheap ass headers. The ports
were just a hair different in areas..
1942 Willys jeep Chads rebuild project.
This is our old 1942 Willys Jeep undergoing a super transformation by my
son Chad. When its all finished it will be/look good as new. So far every
part has been disasembled, cleaned and inspected and if up to
specifications reused; otherwise new parts are used.

Hot Rodded 1981 Jeep CJ-5 with AMC 360 V8 - Too much fun
*This video is old, needs to be updated. The engine/drivetrain has been
vastly improved since this video was filmed.*
My daily driver 1981 Jeep CJ-5 with a .030 over AMC 360 V8 with a little
bit of work done to it.
Edelbrock 600cfm Performer carb
Edelbrock Performer Intake
CompCams 268H AMC camshaft with matched timing set
Stock ignition system for the most part
Everything else is explained in the video. Filmed on a high 20 F degree
day. This Jeep is too much fun and the AMC V8's are very strong motors.
This one has about 6,000 miles on it since the engine rebuild. The
speedometer is accurate give or take 2-3mph, checked with a GPS.
The T176 is a great transmission and has never skipped a beat. I've
wheeled it pretty hard and put it through some hell on the street and at
the strip with several tire size/gear combinations. 3rd gear redlines at
about 90mph with the current setup. I've never really gotten much into 4th
For you guys who have shown concern regarding the suspension, steering,
etc... It has all been refurbished/upgraded to stock/better than stock
condition. It drives very well, straight and true down the road and is
almost nothing like the stereotypical CJ when it comes to its road manners.
