ms198,

You can get a whole lot done with a solid/flat cam if it's well-spec'd. I really like solid rollers but they're not for the faint of heart or light wallets.

If you can give us some details on the Jeep and the heads, I'll see if I can help you out with cam specs and a good engine combo.

I posted over there but you sure might get a whole lot more traffic and some other opinions/ideas for your build if you were to move it over here.

No clearance issues at all. Boots all fit w/o any problems. Plugs all come out w/o any special sockets. You'll like those dart heads !

That engine looks awesome. Just a quick question for you. Why did you go with the Ford Starter Solenoid instead of the Chevy Solenoid? I am looking into the Chevy swap right now and trying to learn as much as possible. Your build has offered alot of insight. Thanks. Also, is that a battery disconnect on the firewall below your battery.

First off, thank you very much. It means a lot that others get something outta this info being shared.
Chevy's have always had a bad problem with starting a hot motor .... actually it's got zip to do with the motor and everything to do with the chebby solonoid failing. I've been doing remote Frod starter set ups since i learned of it in the 70's. Header heat, lack of engine bay venting all play hell on the Chev starters

It is. Ssshhhhhhh. now only 653 people know. Just a simple measure to stop an amature thief, and save a jeep from a roll over fire on the trail ...

I was thinking that was the reason but wasn't sure. I posted another thread earlier and was hoping that you would chime in. I am looking at the 350 swap and was going to use a crate engine to start with. I am looking at a ATK crate engine.

http://high-performance-engines.com/...duct_Code=HP32

I was thinking along the lines of Performer intake (air gap?) 600 or 670 cfm holley, and MSD HEI ignition. What are your thoughts?

ok .. first, I know someone is going to get their tits twisted over this but I'm not a fan of the gen iii motors. The ls and vortec stuff flows well and can make good numbers, but I'm just old school. Plus I can make higher HP for less $$$ with good iron and good heads.

So ... If buying a snap in works, go for it. If you have a good machine shop, you can give life to a 70's early 80's 4 bolt and make the project yours .

Thanks for the reply. I will keep looking but I have not found a good machine shop around me so far. Thus the reason for the crate motor.

Ok so i am doing a 350 small block swap in my YJ and i need some help in looking for the right transmission for it, i am looking for one to withstand both high torque as well as high horse power. That being said im making mine into a crawler so i need something with a good gear ratio, but that can be worked out after if need be. i would prefer a 5 speed manual transmission and then i will have to find a new transfer case to top it off because i have already purchased front and rear axles. and as far as my budget is concerned there really isnt one, i would prefer something that requires as little maintenance out side of servicing it.
