Need more input...........

Does it not turn over when hot? Does it turn over fine, but just not fire?
Does it fire, but won't keep running? What do you mean by "HOT"....does it overheat?...do you have a gauge or an idiot light?

it gets hot it has a temp gauge that just burries into the red and it looses all oil pressure when that happens and as far as atarting it will just lope but i just roll start it when it does that

you probably toasted the motor..if you run it hot enough to seize it up enough that the starter won't kick it, you have to at least tear it down... it's a good thing Jeep used the AMC 360 until '91 in Wagoneers.. your probably going to need 1

I think that's probably right. Could have warped head or cracked head, blown head gasket, ruined bearings and several other things that are heat-related.

I'd be on the lookout for another engine.....there are still a good many around; and I think the 304, 343, 360 and 390 all use the same bolt pattern.

they do, as well as the 401.. but the crank snout changed in '72 when AMC started using the TF trans, which knocks the 343 out as a possible swap in
