Hey KW, I was looking back your pics when you mounted the engine in the frame and it looks like you mounted to bolts in the factory holes. My brackets are the weld in kind but I'm drilling them for bolts also. Did you use the factory mount holes any?
My wife and I recently drove to Tenn to visit my niece and see her new baby girl. On the way back thru Kentucky, we stopped and finally got to meet KW and his wife. Great people, can't wait to see them again. I got to ride in this BBC CJ, trust me, awesome power. Loved the visit and the ride Keith Taking my jeep to work this weekend to use the mig, and finish up the shocks and some other welding on it. Hope the next visit I have my jeep with me. til we meet again my friend

Better off the line launch..... Then there is highway speed where I regularly run 100+MPH in road race courses and want the low heat build up of a lock up converter.
As good as the TH400 is ... and I built mine with the best of the best...it can't do all that what A 4l80 will do without breaking a sweat
I have 3.73's and 35" Toyo's and I still want the engine running a lower RPM when my gas mileage is 6 miles to the gallon.
Right now I run out of redline RPM's and of axle gear at 135 MPH... I need OD
