Chevy 350 Jeep conversion kit

I was wondering if anyone could tell me where or how I would find a conversion kit. And what kind of bellhousing I would need, or any other suggestions. Thanks

Request all catalogs from advanced adapter's read each one. Then figure out what you need. It may be a lot more than you thought. Depends on your specific swap. You can go from there.

A conversion "kit"?

No, there aren't complete kits out there as there are just too many variables.

You find the parts needed to convert it how you'd like it done and put it together.

Hope you're ready to spend some coin, cause it isn't cheap to do it right.

I went into mine kind of blind just because it was so much cheaper to rebuild a 350 than the 304 I had. After I was done it would have been cheaper to rebuild the 304 than to do all that was needed to convert. With that said, I am still glad I did the conversion.

Be careful when looking at "complete" kits... There is always extra cost in there and other parts needed. I did not look closely at this kit, but, I'm just saying to do a lot of research. Novak has a wealth of knowledge! Good luck and have fun!

Notice I used the word "complete", as in everything you need. Those AA kits are not all inclusive.

I'm sure the OP appreciates your info added to his one and a half year old thread also.

It includes everything you need to bolt the gm motor (350 in this case) to a jeep drivetrain and into the jeep. How much more "complete" can it get?

I actually used this thread for some good reading and appreciated the information from others. Figured I'd throw myself a link for future reference and try to get the conversation started again because I'm getting ready for a conversion of my own.
Don't think there's any reason to be unkind. After all this is JEEPFORUM not p**ate 4x4.

I'm at the point of rebuilding a crankless long block I got for free from a box van and figure on using gm drivetrain instead of the $$$ for an adapter.

My point is there's more to a complete engine swap than bolting the engine in. It won't run just bolted in. There's exhaust, fuel lines and wiring if its TBI, etc.

Every SBC swap is a little bit different.
