Chevy 350 conversions

Let's see your chevy 350's! Under the hood pics too! Please add descriptions of the tranny and the biggest problem that you had with the swap....

I added some pics since I started this thread. Just snapped a couple with my cell phone. Note the wiring near the new master cylinder and booster. I am trying to decide whether to replace or sand and paint the headers.

Did you cut that lip on the firewall to make more clearance?

Did not cut anything and HEI distributor. I'm at work today, but will get a pic tomorrow to show the rear clearance.

I also did the conversion with the 350 and 700R4 and factory t-case. I am having a HUGE problem with the wiring also about a year later. It does perfect but when I turn the lights on the alternator gets so hot it burns the belt into pieces. The next step is a one wire alternator straight to the battery. Other than that I love it, it isn't nothing like walking up to it and jumping in and cranking it up and getting everybody to look. the headers look like headman block huggers thats what i used and love it.

headers are the hedman 350 into a jeep conversion headers

i had an uncapable low amp alternator.....so i bought a new one from summit racing:
Summit Racing SUM-G1667A - Summit Racing® Chrome Alternators - Overview - SummitRacing.com

it's great. 100 amps, one wire (hook it to the big lug on the starter) thats it. has a self exciting internal regulator..... with all my lights, radio, electric fan, and heat on, it still puts out 14 volts charging(had it tested today) highly recommend!

thanks jeepin1995 I will consider that alternator the main thing now is saving the jeep fund back up. It is very aggravating not being able to drive the jeep at all at night. Also, what style kick down cable did yall use for the 700R4 I cant get mine adjusted right it shifts alittle funny when it gets warm. I think it might be the crapy rebuild I got for cheap. Live and learn I guess.

I would show you some pics, but this joint won't let me yet ..If you can see my profile pic there is one of my engine. I would love this thread to stay alive, and any other 35o conversion threads that we can get going, cause I and alot of others still need some help getting finished up.
