Looks nice sitting in there. I wish I had a few extra $$ laying around to get mine done. I bet that thing merges on the freeway effortlessly now lol. Great job on the swap! Got any pics of the rear driveline and the trans mount/belly pan so I can get an idea of what i'm up against there?

What tranny and transfer case did you use. Do you have any pics of the way you fabed up the tranny mount? Looks awsome by the way.

I used a 46rh auto that came with the engine from a 94 grand cherokee and reused my 231 t case, I dont have pics of the mount but will take some. basicly tho I used the plate thats came on the trany and welded a strip of 1/2 c chanel and some scram 1.4 in plate I had to move it back and give me clearance than drilled the plate for stock mount

I think since the motor has no intake and was never fuel injected I am going to go with a good intake and new 4 brl Carb to keep it simple.

The NP231 will not bolt up to the 727 without an adapter at least thats what I was told can anyone confirm or deny this.
