Did you have to get custom axel shafts and how was the instalation and mount of the chevy tranny in the jeep frame I'm guessing custom brackets?

Mine uses the stock trans mount for an automatic. I had to drill new holes for the bolts,that's all. Not sure if this method will work for you,but I'm guessing it should.

I did have to change drive shaft length. I'm guessing that's your question.......not custom axles

I've never heard of a flywheel that thick though......hmm, I thought that most G.M. flywheels were the same,other than diameter and tooth count.

I don't know much on the soa conversion but to get rid of the p/s pump you will need a manual steering box.

If you in fact have ( V ) belts,then you can get one for a 350 without power steering. The power steering belt was usually a stand alone belt.

Wonder if maybe it was an 11" disk/PP inside a small bellhousing intended for a 10.5" clutch?

Also, you mentioned the broken input shaft sleeve.. that's what the throwout bearing rides on. Depending on the damage, it may still be able to be used.
