So today my dad called his friend aka little dog and asked if he could help me out the engine in he said sure but to have everything ready and mocked up! So i took all the chrome off of the engine and put on the old stuff. Bolted up the tranny and got it set in place and the drive shafts are ready to go aswell. I have a few questions im hoping you can answer. The engine is a chevy small block with a t18 behind it. What do my drive shaft angles need to be? Will i need new drive shafts? Where will the engine mounts fall at? How does the tranny mount to the skid plate?

Also has anyone used the stock gm flywheel with a zoom clutch? It says the flywheel thickness will need to be reduced. Does anyone know by how much?

Omg! I am laughing so hard right now and thought i would share this! My friend possibly the biggest redneck i know has homemade a set of "boggers" for his truck. I mean he is a complete whizz with a wrench and anything redneck related but he can probably weld wood. This is just another one of his creations lol

Got the tranny all the way mounted after about 4 hours of grinding cutting lifting and drilling. Sorry for the crappy pics but it was 9:30 when we finished. Also went to drop in the drive shafts to look at angles and such. And the exact thing i feared came true! The shafts are 2 short. Sighhh also going to re-in force the skid plate im the next few days aswell!

Almost ready to find the final resting place of the engine! I have 2 drive shafts that will fit on the way and the tranny on and the engine mounts cut and fitted. Welding it all in will bee the next prefect!

Looks like you are making progress again, and doing a fine job. I'm about to start a similar project, dropping a 350 into a 1991 YJ, although I'm not pulling the body tub off. So I'm interested to see how the whole bolting the thing up goes for you. Keep up the good work, you'll be driving it around before you know it!
