If this is regarding the '65 American you posted about, don't do anything until you determine the condition of the vehicle. You said it was running bad- see if it needs a simple tune up before going deeper. With all due respect, tearing it apart at your skill level may mean the demise of the car altogether- a lot of well-intentioned guys have started out taking everything apart only to stall out because of the size of the job or lack of funds and/or knowledge.

The original engine can be determined by checking the VIN number; should be on the passenger side wheelwell under the hood. More here.

There are various AMC/Rambler sites that may be of some help to you. Some general info is here.

Good luck.

If you don't have a repair manual of some sort covering the car don't disassemble unless you have experienced supervision. Get a manual and look it over first! If you need help IDing an AMC engine just let me know.
