Engine Swap parts list thread?
I know there are many threads out there about swapping SBC, SBF, 4.0L, etc., into our CJs, but has anyone ever come across any threads with just a list of what was needed and the options for parts? Starting to seriously start gathering parts for my 302 swap, and would love to find all the info in one location. I know there are always variables, but at least a list of parts and maybe even P/N would be good for a quick reference. A list maybe containing all JY parts usable, with aftermarket options for radiators, exhaust manifolds (over headers), etc.
My plan is really simple, keeping the T177/D300, so all I can see me needing is the engine, using MORE mounts, bellhousing, starter, radiator hoses, some wiring. I want to keep cast manifolds for simplicity and reliability, but what donor? I thought I read you could use F150 manifolds, but then it sounded like you couldn't. Can I keep the 258's radiator and adapt hoses? Room for a V-belt fan or will electric be needed? It has V-belts already, just going to keep them. May go serp with the EFI swap.
I want EFI, but I am thinking more and more on just using the carb engine I have for now, get it swapped in and those parts figured out, then later on going to EFI. More work in the long run, but I have that engine, need to get my driveshaft angles and such fixed, and I can't do the driveline without the engine in there - not going to have the driveshafts shortened/lengthened more than once, it is a waste of money.
Can we get a thread of nothing but parts, and without a lot of commentary? I read the build threads, find them very informative, but they are stretched over so long of time that parts and pieces and trials and errors can be distracting. Maybe if you did a build thread, just post what you used?
