350 swap. the time is near

well everyone as the title says, i am getting close to swaping in the 355. i have almost all the major parts. the only thing im waiting on is i have to swap a dana 60 in a friends truck. the rear went out of it and it is in my bay. anyway the sye is a jb conversions super short sye on a np241 transfer case. the tranny is a nv3500 5 speed behind a 355 tbi sbc. i just got the flywheel resurfaced and put a new ring gear on it. also installed a new clutch. im glad i got the tranny and transfer case for free because stuff is EXPENSIVE!!!

when i installed the sye i have a lot of play to the front output. i tore it back apart and traced it to the syncro. i dont care for the slop but im going to run it anyway. when others installed their sye, do u have this play too?

well didnt get that much more done tonight. pulled the entire exhaust, power steering res( both lines were frozen in the steering box so they are junk) dropped the trans case, and started to take loom off of wires. i only need a few wires but dont want to screw up and cut some wires i need. tomorrow i should be able to pull the engine and trans and start either ripping the dash apart or cutting the old mounts out. which ever i feel like doing first!

There are so many wires!!! Got the engine pulled this morning, now trying to sort through some of the wires that i need to keep. I am deleting sensors first to try to narrow things down. Will post some more pics either tonight or tomorrow.

ok everyone big update!! i will go in order.
1,2- the old engine is out!
3,4,5- this is all the body wiring, anything that was connected to the ecm cut cut and taken out!!
there are still a ton of wires in the harness for the factory gauges that i didnt want to cut out in fear of cutting wires that i will need.

i have to do some real work to the skid plate!! the t case hangs below the skid right now and the front output is below the front of the skid. we are going to put an inch block between the trans and skid to raise the trans up and if that isn't enough we will lower the skid 1/2 inch. also i have to take the oil cooler adapter off the top of the filter because right now the drive shaft would hit the filter. if all these mods to the skid don't work, i guess i will have to fab a custom skid up.

Get a remote mount filter adapter or 4wd filter adapter. The remote will allow you to place it wherever is best for you and the 4wd SBC one will turn the filter 90* so it screw on from the front. Both are cheap, last I bought the remote setup it was like $53 .

Clocking ring should help the saggy tcase
