I just finished stuffing a 283 Chevy into my '55 CJ-5... It actually almost fit. I bought conversion motor mounts and an adapter kit to bolt the 3 speed to the motor. I also had to have a custom radiator built. Man is it fast! Its actually scary. It would probably be easier to put a V8 in your CJ-7 because the engine compartment is about 10 inches longer than mine. Advance Adaptors probably has everything you'll ever need to do something like this. Good luck!
