I am puting a 360 2barrel in my Jeep because the 401 that was in it has 10 pounds of comp on cylinder 7 Sad. I pulled the motor out last weekend and during the week I have been working on the 360.The Jeep is a 1977 Wagoneer I got last fall. I am known as the Mr. Happyface. I am 12 years old.That is me in my dads sig photo. Cool

tell your dad 'thanks' for raising you right.  My dad raised me to leave stuff stock.  I soon found out that was really boring, and ended up bringing home old discarded lawnmowers (dad did not like this) and I worked on them a lot in the summer... some would run, others wouldn't, and others I modified... drilled the mufflers, modify the air cleaner so the air had a straight path to the engine, stuff like that.

Thankyou guys  Cool  My dad found me this Jeep, so I would have another 401 to make fast for my Gremlin. I decided to change to a 360 so I could drive it in the mud  Smiley Dad is letting me do all the work myself-to learn more. Here are some pictures of my project. It took me 4 hours to get the engine out. I am hoping to put the 360 in on the weekend. Mr. Happyface.

I did not get the engine put in this weekend, because I had to go to my cousin's birthday party and easter egg hunt all day Sunday Sad I did get done with some of it. I gapped the plugs and put them in, the alt on,motor mounts and ground cable,front trans seal, intake and T-stat. I had to drill and tap all 4 manifold studs  Angry Got the carb on, but not the fuel line or spacer in back of the crank.
Mr. Happyface  Cool I also thought that I would put a pic of me when I was 7 taking my first 401 out for my AMX.

Thats too cool, your lucky to have a head on your shoulders and a Dad that can point you in the right direction.  My old man couldn't show you the business end of a screw driver.  Huh

Awesome! My first project that my dad helped me with was a 75 (rust bucket) Trans Am and I was 14... Had to ride my bike all the way accross town to work on it. Keep up the good work, and Mud will be flying before you know it! Cool
