v8 swap on 1956 jeep
has anyone ever done it? how hard would it be to drop in a 1960 somethin chevy small block into the 1956 jeep? would there have to be any major changes?
Very common back in the day, however, there are some alternatives today. The Buick V6 came stock in CJ's from 65 to 71. Outstanding motor and easily adaptable. Another popular powerplant is the Vortec V6. Both fit in the compartment much better. In order to get the V8 in there, you will have to change/fab the motor towers, adapt the transmission, cut the grill, install a larger radiator, build the exhaust, and fab your linkages. Your best bet for details is earlycj5.com.
