  • Documented sites of v8 conversions?

    Hello all ,
    This is a nice site and I'm glad I found it. I have one question,are there any sites I can go to where there is info on a chevy running gear and v8 conversion for a cj5 or a cj7? I currently do not own a jeep but reading some of the post about the small block chevy conversions, well its 'throwed a cravin' on me . I have never thought about it before but I bet it would be neat to play around with.I would have thought the wheel base would be awful short to get all that stuff under there. I have done a 55 chev. truck to 4wd with a small block and borg-warner,new process205 transfer case,and dana housings,but that was pretty straight forward. If anyone knows of someone that has cronicled this before, let me know please. I guess I could buy one already done but that would take all the fun away .
    thanks alot.

        I put a 350 w/auto in mine last year and doing good so far, working on narrowing a 44 for the front and a 9" ford for the rear. Its parked until I finish my 9" I trashed my model 20 showing my tail on the highway. let me know if i can help. Joe
