413 in a jeep

I got a 413 motor in my wagoneer and it lopes real bad at idle. An about 2000 rpm's it clears up but it makes my whole jeep lean real bad to the passenger side when I mash the throttle. Is there a quick fix for this, maybe a suspension mod? Or do do I just gotta live with it?

Bit more detail on year, etc. would help.
e.g. most early American attempts at smog in the 70's sucked for driveability.
As for leaning, you might want to check out your motor mounts and shock absorbers, and while under there, look for other loose/worn suspension bits.

Re: 413 in a jeep

It's a 74 I dug out of a old retired irrigation pump a while back. Replaced the distributor shaft. And it runs. The leaning is a fairly new problem an I crawled underneath an it seems to be a terribly bad idea to put this in my jeep. My plastic king pin bushings have melted. It runs at about 210 degrees an I heard that was normal so I've just been driving it all over hell an back. But thinking I might just throw it on Craigslist an dump it an start over.
