My 1979 CJ-7's 304 is worn out. What engine would be a good replacement?

Is it best to rebuild or replace? (The "tell us your car" info is incorrect)

Rebuild it and put it right back in, lot less head ache than adapting another engine. That is what I would do but it's your call. I see a lot of SB Chevy's in them also but then what about emissions, don't know how that would be in Ca. on a 1979.

Thanks! It just passed CA smog emissions, so I think I'll wait and rebuild it this winter.
